After conceding a ‘Fergie Time` equaliser at White Hart Lane, a late goal that gave Spurs a draw, Sir Alex Ferguson, as we`d expect, had a few moans about a few things.

In his sights, after the weekend saw our lead over Manchester City, in the title race, reduced by two points, notably the linesman, although he did hand out some praise to our opponents with the boss remarking,

‘We did so well at everything and we kept heading it out, the disappointment is not finishing them off. We had a lot of opportunities on the counter attack but our final ball let us down.”

‘It was a clear penalty-kick on Wayne Rooney but in no way was the linesman going to give that. He gave them everything else. We have not had a good record with this linesman, against Chelsea a few years ago he gave onside to Didier Drogba who was three yards offside, you remember those things.”

‘They pumped the ball forward, maybe David De Gea could have got a better punch on it, but I will have to see it again.”

‘Tottenham were very committed and aggressive. I think they have a decent squad and a good team.”

‘If you look at our away programme we have been to Everton, been to Liverpool, been to Manchester City, been to Tottenham… We have been to all the top teams away from home.’


Indeed we have and we still lead the pack, a position many other clubs would die for!
