Ferguson - 9 Internationals And We Deserved It

Ferguson - 9 Internationals And We Deserved It

Sir Alex of the Ferguson has apologised to United fans for the loss tonight and said he hopes we now reach the final.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match it was clear Ferguson was less than happy with the showing from his team, as clearly despite his changes he believes that with NINE internationals in the squad they should have had enough to beat us.

'I'm so disappointed. I have to apologise to my fans and all the players who weren't playing. We never expected that. Nine internationals out there. So that that was a big disappointment.'

However, Ferguson did add that he hopes Palace can now go all the way and make the final.

'I don't want to be taking anything away from Crystal Palace because I wish them every success. I hope they get to the final. They've put in an effort and they deserve to get to the final. They worked so hard for that so well done to them. At the end of the day Palace deserved the result.'

I agree Sir Alex, and yes I can see how much you are smarting - it's not even patronising because it's true!

Firstly many congratulations on a great win, but for all of Fergies talk of 9 internationals, they played in a very predictable manner and showed Uniteds lack or depth as a squad. Also from what I saw it appeared that Palace were prepared to fight or everything, united weren't and I suspect they thought they would win with some ease

I'm not having anything take away from the victory Mr Oxfordspur lol

Yes, to be honest United probably expected to walk it and weren't prepared for how hard we would battle in the game. No shame in that, if we hadn't performed ourselves the result would've been different. Just pleased to see us dig in but still play some good open attacking stuff.

Cheers NUNU.
