In the aftermath of the 1-2 loss to Fulham: Fergie's at it again.....




Well, let me just start off this brief entry by saying that Sir Alex has been a good sport by mentioning....or rather admitting (finally....good grief!) that his Man Utd team was just not good enough in their 1-2 shcok loss to Fulham over the weekend. Whatever the reason was, Fulham deserved all the credit for their relentless hard work and for constantly pressuring the United backline throughout the game.
On the other hand, Fergie has lived up to his normal behaviour (as expected by millions of football fans) and criticized both red cards which were directed at his players. Two things Sir Alex.....firstly, a 'childish behaviour' does not warrant a place on the field during play. Rooney's immature temper led to him throwing the ball wildly towards Phil Dowd (the match referee) while the latter ordered a free kick to be taken from a specified spot. For God's sake, he's the referee...not a ball-boy, Wayne! So, Rooney's red card is justified.
Secondly, Schole's handball was nevertheless was a 'no-brainer'......come on....a ball destined to go into the net, and he HAD to scoop it away with his hands. Hmmm.....seems to me that even Schole-sy's red card is unquestionable. Not much valid points for Fergie to argue on both occasions.
Truthfully speaking, Utd's performance was already down the drain prior to Schole's dismissal......lack of confidence and loss of alertness eventually led them being outplayed by Fulham. They never recovered from this lack of match momentum and were made to pay the price. That's all to it.
Maybe (or eventually) Sir Alex will start giving credits to teams which could beat his team in the future......because I don't see anything that sounds like a praise/giving credit to Fulham...let alone Liverpool (in their 4-1 victory againts Utd in Old Trafford a fortnight ago) for that matter.
'Nuff said....
