Three points safely in the bag and you would have thought our gaffer, Sir Alex Ferguson, would have been well pleased.

Naturally, there were concerns that we`d let another two goal lead slip but Sir Alex, in his post match interview, seemed intent on haranguing the opposition for getting back into the match courtesy of not doing much and with a linesman that had it in for United, remarking,

“At 2-0 I thought it was going to be a cricket score.”

“It was a game we absolutely dominated and I was saying to myself ‘it could`ve been 10`

“So when it looked like ending 2-2, it would have been a travesty.”

“They had the momentum when it went to 2-2 but they never offered anything did they?”

“They had to depend on decisions from the linesman to get back into the game.”


Roy Hodgson, on his first visit to Old Trafford as the Liverpool manager, disagreed with that and, as you`d quite rightly expect, defended his team`s performance remarking,

“To undermine our performance that much is a little bit harsh. You can make your own decisions”

“The performance was good and we deserved to get back into the game.”


From a United supporter`s point of view, I`d disagree. I thought that was the poorest Liverpool team to turn up at Old Trafford for many a year.

Anyone care to disagree!
