Dougie Freedman: More concerned with winning games than relegation

Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Watford left Wanderers without a win in the npower Championship since the turn of the year, fifth bottom and three points above third-bottom Barnsley - albeit with a game in hand.

"I don't think that way and anyone who wants to help the club shouldn't think that way either," said Whites boss Freedman when asked about relegation.

"I'm more concerned about us winning games of football. We're not far away from these teams.

"We just need that little bit of luck. I've been here 1,000 times as a player and a manager. We've got the qualities in the squad to springboard us up the league.

"We're in a difficult moment where we feel everything is going against us. We'll regroup, we stand together and we'll springboard up, no problem."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
