Although Sir Alex Ferguson has already confirmed that regaining the Premier League, from Manchester City, is his prime objective, there is still the small matter of the Champions League.

Last season, United failed to navigate their way out of a group many expected them to win and our subsequent demotion into the Europa League resulted in an embarrassing first game exit, therefore it doesn`t come as too much of a surprise to learn that Sir Alex is promising better next season with the boss, remarking about our Champions League demise last time out and our intentions next time out,

“It`s fair to say we threw that one away. That won`t happen again next season.”

“We`ll qualify from the Group stages. I`ll make sure of it. European football is hugely important to us and we must compete for the biggest trophies.”

“We need to make a statement – and show everybody last season was just a blip.”


A blip or slipping below the high standards we normally set?
