Fergie: No Complaints & Ronaldo Chuffed With Reception

Fergie on Ronaldo

“He dedicated himself to getting fit and his commitment to the club,” Ferguson said. “It (the crowd’s reception) was important for Cristiano. I think he realises what a great club he is at and how loyal the fans are. He will take great encouragement from that.”

“We made a lot of good chances, we played really good football, we played with speed,” he added. “It was difficult for a couple of players who were playing their first games. It was a big ask for them to complete 90 minutes. Maybe in the second half it opened up because a few players were starting to feel it. I have no complaints. On another day we could have scored four or five. They are a very experienced side, very competitive team. They defend determinedly.”

“It is a big game, they are all big games now,” he said. “We have to reach our peak – it was the same last season, normally October you’ll see us much, much better.”

    why oh why cant we ever have a decent pre season ?!

  2. Tre says:

    It’s the United way, Anant. I thought we looked very lively and it seemed a goal was always just a moment away. We lack that razor edge but the signs were encouraging, maybe Sunday’s game will see us breakthrough in front of goal, run out 3-0 winners.

    @Anant: Pre-season as in??? We had a decent pre-season by all means, didn’t lose any game and put out OK performances, what wasn’t good about our pre-season??? I don’t like Fergie’s last sentence, its almost like he’s saying “Hey don’t expect us to win the Chelsea game, but we’ll be back in October like we always do”
