Ferguson not too downhearted

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson felt his youthful side put up a reasonable show as they suffered to a 1-0 defeat to Galatasaray.

Ferguson shuffled his squad knowing United had already booked their place in the knockout stages and they were undone by Burak Yilmaz's second-half goal.

The Red Devils boss was disappointed to see his side concede from a corner admitting he feared Galatasaray would pose the biggest danger from set-pieces.

"Their temperament was good, the crowd never affected us and I thought they put up a reasonable show," Ferguson told Sky Sports.

"Some of the possession was good, some of the attacking play at times was good without finishing the game off with one or two opportunities in both halves.

"But when you lose a goal from a set-piece you are always going to be saying it's a bad way to lose a goal.

"They had a few strikes from outside the box which our goalkeeper dealt with well, other than that I thought we handled it OK.

"I think if there was one part of it we were going to worry about was set-pieces because they are a more experienced, stronger, bigger side and you expect them to cause you some problems at set-pieces.

"We handled it quite well throughout the match, but we have lost a goal from a corner. It is not surprising because of the strength they have there, but nonetheless to lose a goal from a corner kick is never easy to take."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
