Taggart Bangs On About Experience Again

Taggart Bangs On About Experience Again

Sir Alex Ferguson is back to talking City again keeping up the Talking Blue momentum he has clearly instructed his players to maintain all season...

Over and over again we've heard the likes of knackered old stagers Michael Owen, Ryan Giggs, Rio Ferdinand and 50 year old Paul Scholes droan on about 'title winning experience' and here we go again with the latest from the pensioner-in-chief. His new angle is about the irregularities of TV league fixture scheduling. He rambled to rag arslikhan-fest Inside United:

'It doesn't make a difference to us. But it may make a difference to them as they don't have the same kind of experience...you never know.'

All this is increasingly beginning to sound like straw clutching. Sure, City are a young squad, but a hungry young squad who are evidently well up for the cause. The Blues also carry a wealth of international players who have played at the highest level.

File under keep it coming rags.

They say a drowning man's entire life flashes before his eyes just before he goes under. See ya Taggart, hope we haven't upset your retirement plans!

It's going to be hilarious when he, Giggs, and Scholes are gone soon. The fear factor will evaporate instantly, they'll have no one to bully and intimidate officials into giving them decisions, and teams will play with less respect against them. So many teams this season have lost 1-0 or so to them after bottling a number of easy chances to score (like Scott Sinclair's open net miss when they played Swansea). Even if they get Mourinho, I don't think he will have the same impact as they won't be able to spend the amount of money he likes to build his squads due to their debt which is still years away from going away.
