This happened on Match Day 5,but Arrogant Alex through his toys out the cot.


Sir Alex Ferguson left a Manchester United press conference after being asked whether standards in the Premier League are slipping and why his team are struggling in the Champions League.

The questions came from BBC journalist Matt Slater who asked the United boss if the fact that they and Manchester City were having trouble in Europe was because the Premier League was not as strong as first thought.

Ferguson, who is known for storming out of press conferences in the past, replied: "Are you serious? We’re not struggling," before getting up and walking out of the room.

United drew 2-2 at home to Benfica last night and need to avoid defeat in Switzerland when they take on FC Basel in the final round of the group fixtures to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition.

Bit late with this one mate... This happened over two weeks ago.

We were fookin gash last night, and tbh we didn't deserve to go through. Our performances in Europe this season have been woeful. I think real, Barca and Bayern are the favourites in my op.

Agreed. I can't really see any other time getting to the finals unless they draw each other.

100% agreed. Barca's reserves beat *somecrapteam* 4-0 on Tuesday in their final CL group game. When your reserves can demolish a team like that, it's scary what the first team can do!

Chelsea lost 3-0 to that same Europa League team.
FC Van Persie will need a good draw to go far I think. Same for Chelsea.

Well,ever since Platini became UEFA presidant,there has always been 1 Anglo-Italian tie in the R16.Possibilities are:

AC Milan vs Arsenal
AC Milan vs Chelsea
Napoli vs Arsenal
Napoli vs Chelsea.

To continue the Italy/Germany/4th Champions League spot battle,Inter will get Bayer Leverkusen.

I might be wrong,but pre-season friendlies and UEFA club competitions could possibly be two different issues.
