After Fergie's ridiculous outburst following Saturday's 2-2 draw between Man Utd & Arsenal at Ashburton, the purple nosed one has continued his offensive by claiming United are the better side and accussed Arsenal of celebrating like 'they had won the world cup.'
This latest statement follows on from Fergie's claim that Howard Webb favoured the Gunners in the game and that security at Ashburton Grove is 'Obscene'.
'At the end of the Arsenal game, our players were in the dressing room feeling absolutely sick, that's twice in two years they've turned the game around and got something in the last minute, so we were definitely disappointed to come away with a draw.' said Ferguson
'Meanwhile, their dressing room was elated. They were celebrating as if they'd won the World Cup, which I found very interesting. Our players took something out of that, psychologically.'
'I think we're a better team than Arsenal now. They're a young team and they're going to be a very good team - there's no question of that - but we went there when they were on top form and they hardly managed a shot on goal. There were definitely a lot of positives for us.'
Don't get me wrong Alex Ferguson is allowed to believe his team is better than ours, that's his opinion, hell, as United manager you'd expect him to say things like that, but claiming some kind of psychological high ground due to that fact we celebrated a last minute equaliser? I'm not buying that.
Over the years we have seen United score more last gasp winners and equalisers than any other team, including Arsenal, and they celebrated just as much as we did. The only reason that we felt euphoria and United felt dismay was the timing of the goal, nothing else. If the roles were reversed then I'm sure they would have done the same.
The fact that Arsenal have twice forced results late on against SAF's team suggests that Arsene's Army has better focus, fitness and mentality. As we were all told as school boys, you play for the 90 minutes, and beyond.
Once again Ferguson also failed to get his facts straight before mouthing off, claiming we 'hardly managed a shot on goal'. Well 18 Arsenal efforts on goal compared to United's 11 (Arsenal managed double the amount of Man Utd's shot on target) shows Ferguson to be wrong once again.
He must be getting old.
