That it was a fair match and the better team won? Or do you think he will make excuses and claim that the ref made wrong decisions? I wouldn't risk money on it!! No, I'm not a Chelsea fan...or any other team particularly. This is just an impartial bystander's observation.

Now friend Sir Alex is a true professional and so he will definitely blame the referee for the second goal however at the same time I think that it will be wrong if he doesn't give Chelsea their due.ManU was outplayed by Chelsea and so the team that played better football won the game and the result is a fair one.

As I've said, I didn't watch the game but, I have so often heard him make "excuses" and whine about decisions when they lose. Obviously, any good manager will support their players to the utmost but, it would be nice to see him accept defeats more graciously.

Hi Wizzywig, For sure all the blame are for the referee and his assistants. He might accuse them as blind and taking side. The most famous topic for him now was the Chelsea second goal. Just wait for his after match interview. If his team score an offside goal and counted, he would say that he does not see it as his position was far enough to see what happen. But, he definitely can see it tonight even though the bench never put nearer to the goal posts. Suddenly he has a very good eyes even without his glasses.

Yes, i'd heard that it was a possible offside so I guessed he'd say that it WAS. I wonder, - when he was a kid playing soccer and his team were losing do you think he took his ball and went home to tell his mum that the others had cheated

He definitely did that. He never want accept that his team or him was not good enough to win the game. What a share for old grown man. To act like a crying baby was the lowers point of sportsmanship.

He's not the only manager like that but I think I'll be unpopular enough with Man U fans without incurring the wrath of any other teams fans so I wont mention them by name poor Alex (sniff)

Hiya Wizzy, Alex Ferguson deserves to be listened to but I have not heard him for so long I really cannot give you an opinion on that. Arsenal I´m very glad to say drew with Barcelona the other Day not so glad about the poor camera man though. But it just goes to show that other teams like Barcelona can lose or almost lose. Our local team won them twice Osasuna. I don´t support them either but I am glad they did win. I always cheer the silver medal winners more than the Gold because I think they seem to have it so much tougher. What I mean is the I support the runners up as they deserve respect too not everyone can be in first place can they?

Yes, I tend to support the "underdog" tho i have no great passion for any team. When my son comes home next week I will have 2 West Ham fans in the house... (what was that I said about the underdog?)

Hiya Wizzy, I find myself supporting the underdog as well. This happens to me in the Olympics the Winter and the Summer ones. I will never understand the ways they mark some People it´s quite baffling to me how they come to that conclusion. Have a great passion for Ice Skating most of all and all the others come after. I like West Ham too and Tottenham but most of all Wolves as they have come a long way since they were almost forced to close up shop some time back and now look at them. Steve Bull and Andy Thompson and Robbie Keane are my favourite players with a great sense of humour too. Good luck with supporting the West Ham supporters hope you´ve got plenty of crisps and those other things in too all stocked up and ready.

Alex Ferguson has been on the bench since I was a young boy. It seems like he is part and parcel of Old Trafford's furniture. I don't believe he would be fired over last's weekend's defeat. I am not fan of English soccer so it does not make any difference who will win. Both are good teams. And the race still seems wide open.

Oh, I'm sure he wouldn't be fired... they wouldn't dare! It doesnt bother me either. I just see him on the news and he can never seems to give other teams credit for their performance when they win. He always seems to suggest that they were 'lucky' or had some unfair advantage. (Of course, I dont always see him so it could be a coincidence that he only says nice stuff when i'm not watching??)

usually, the loser team will say like that "the referee made wrong decision" and of course this is happened as ferguson said if the second goal that made by drogba is offside and the referee made wrong decision. this is normal situation i think.

Thats quite so but, as I said above, it would be nice to hear him and a few others, accept defeat more graciously and concede that the other team played well.

:) How many years have you tracked the career of Sir Alex Ferguson? In the last 15 years I have not heard him say that, so do not expect him to say that. Yes, occasionally he has let his captains like Roy Keane take the team apart in the media, but he has always put the referees and the opposition managers under pressure with his tactics. So though I agree with your wish, I think Sir Alex is not going to fall for that... :) Cheers! Ram

In an interview on the BBC His assistant claimed Drogba's goal was offside! typical sore losers lol. I'm no fan of Chelsea too but they did deserve the win and take the points. Lots of teams go to Man U and get nothing from the Ref. So Ferguson should not complain when the tables are turned! Chelsea looked sharp and fresh and now have a 2 point lead with 5 games to go! the title is back in there hands! Just my opinion.

I didnt see any of the match - just the result so I probably have no business starting a discussion about it... but, I just couldn't help myself I think its good to see a bit of healthy competition instead of one team having all the glory.
