We may well have remained unbeaten in the Champions League this season but our spluttering form means that we still have it all to play for as we head towards the final group game against FC Basel.

In fact it is fair to say that although we need a point to ensure qualification, when we go to Switzerland, there`s more than a fair chance that we will end up finishing second in the group, with all its inherent potential problems.

Following the somewhat disappointing draw against Benfica, last night, this is something Sir Alex Ferguson touched on when he remarked to a very attentive media,

“It makes it a bit harder, of course. But maybe the bigger game will suit us anyway.”

“The opportunity to play Inter Milan, Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich, you have to judge that this way if you played them in a semi-final or the final you`d be only too delighted, knowing the possibility is to win the trophy. The clubs we will face will know that as well.”

“It will be hard in Basel, but when the chips are down I have every confidence in my players.”


And as for a few comments on the result last night, Sir Alex added,

“We did not deserve what happened. We played terrific football. I have no fault with my players. It is a cruel game at times and it was cruel for us here.”

Would it be churlish to infer that these things have a habit of evening themselves out?
