Man Utd boss Ferguson blames Everton defeat on lack of cutting edge


Bookmark and Share

Sir Alex Ferguson has said his Manchester United team were beaten by Everton because the Red Devils lacked the incision to make the most of their possession, the Guardian has reported.



A Marouane Fellaini goal was enough to give David Moyes’ side victory in their opening Premier League game of the season as United, starting with Wayne Rooney, Shinji Kagawa, Danny Welbeck and Luis Nani, struggled to break down a dogged Everton defence.


Robin van Persie started the match as a substitute and was introduced with around 20 minutes remaining, but the presence of the former Arsenal captain and England winger Ashley Young, who was also introduced, was not enough to overcome a resolute home side.


Everton utilised the power of Fellaini to build many of their attacks and while Ferguson believes his side coped well with the Belgian, he was less impressed with the lack of a cutting edge from United’s own forwards. He said: “But we had the possession and made some great openings without actually finishing it. We were a wee bit [disappointing] in terms of finishing off the approach play we had…On another day we would have won the match.

I think Sir Alex must retire now. he ran out of ideas.He failed to replace Roy Kean and he is sticking to average and retired players. I have a high regard for Paul, he's really trying very but his time has gone. Carrick is not ManU quality. We need a distroyer in the middle and players with guts and vision in the back four. So long Fergie!

Excuses and arrogant ...wake up SAF we are not the 1999 squad ...Rooney your god son can't even have a decent control of the ball often losing cheaply ..opponent are no more fearing Man United anymore..stop dreaming and start doing something like you often do in the past...bring Victory...

with a man utd team at half strength at the moment,Wayne'i switch off against everton"Rooney,looking like he's forgotten how to play football and looks like he hasn't shifted the excess pounds left over from his pie eating competitions whilst on leave,it was of no wonder that utd lost there opening game.it wasn't that everton where so good,it was utd far from there best,and not having anyone to deal with Fellaini,(there's still time to sign a midfield general that utd really need fergie).the funny thing is fellaini was probably sat up all night thinking his agent was going to call him with an offer from utd.good points to take from the game,de gea what a keeper,stopped the scoreline from being embarrassing,Kagawa going to be a great acquisition for utd,we all know about rvp he's a player who will score goals.

What possession is he referring to? Always thought Fergie is going senile and this re-affirms it.
