I rarely post enemy related post here, but this one is too good to be missed.
Sir Alex reckoned that Manchester City is not a real threat, instead, like the last 2 seasons, Chelsea and Liverpool will.
“Manchester City are getting all the back page stories and they will hold that position for the rest of the season because there is a lot of interest in what they have done and a lot of speculation about whether it is going to work,” said Ferguson. “But I cannot look at Manchester City as our main competitors. Liverpool and Chelsea are our main competitors. There is no doubt about that. It won’t be easy for them to win anything, even with all the players they have bought. They have bought a lot of high profile players but they have 10 strikers. That is a hell of a lot. I have not spoken to all the managers but the one or two I have are saying ‘Who are they going to leave out’? How do you tell players they are not even going to be travelling to London? How does he pick a team? We are all interested.”
The best part was Sir Alex statement below:
“We have won the title for the last three years and in the history of the English game no-one has ever won four,” he continued. “That tells you what a competitive league it is. Lyon won their league seven times in a row. Dynamo Kiev won nine, as have Celtic and Rangers. Dinamo Berlin 11 in the old East Germany. You will never get that in the English game. I am in charge of a football club that has the right philosophy. I have had fantastic moments here. I have 76,000 watching my team in every home game. I shouldn’t really concern myself about another team in the same city, no matter what they do.”
I don’t care what Sparky or Citeh fans respond to this, but it’s obvious that our boss is back from vacation! That’s what matters. Come on you Reds!
