Alex Ferguson Pessimistic over FA Cup Quarter Final Tie with Fulham!

(This entry was originally published on Thursday, March 5th, 2009)

Manchester Untied takes on premier league club Fulham in Saturday’s FA Cup quarter final match. United recently clinched the Carling Cup title and holds the FIFA Club World Cup title too. So, winning five titles in one season, which seemed to be a distant reality even a couple of months back, now seems very possible by the Red Devils with the titles of FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League are now at stake.

Well, ahead of the FA Cup showdown with Fulham, manager Sir Alex Ferguson has recently said that even a deflected shot could end their FA Cup hope this season and he has enough justification of saying so. Last season, Manchester Untied was left out of the FA Cup from the quarter final stage after a 1-0 defeat at the hands of eventual winner Portsmouth, despite the fact that the Red Devils dominated throughout the match. That is where Ferguson’s fear lies. Manchester United now leading the premier league by 7 points with a match in hand.

Ferguson might rest some of his key players to ensure a full-strength squad ahead of Champions League clash with Inter Milan next Wednesday. Well, I still bet on United’s favor, considering their big squad a number of quality players they have in each position on the field.
