Fergie post city debacle

"The referee's decided it's a red card and I think he should look at it again really. He's not touched the player, he's not got near him.I think he's really disappointed he never got a foul for the tackle on him, and it was a really bad tackle on him on the touchline. But no foul came from the referee and that's frustrated him. He didn't get a foul for a very bad tackle. He got a bit frustrated with that. He's not that type of player and it was a bit rash more than vicious. He's not touched the player, he's not gone near him but the referee has decided it's a red card, maybe he should look at it again. But you do run the risk of it happening. On Wednesday (against Blackburn in the League Cup) there was a tackle on Wayne Rooney's knees and there was not even a booking. Different referees have different interpretations and we had Steve Bennett ..."

"At 2-0 down we wanted to make sure we didn't lose another goal. I think John O'Shea has more knowledge of derby games than Patrice, so that was maybe a bit of a gamble. That's why I played Mikael Silvestre, being a French player, trying to help Patrice. He did his job ok, I've no complaints. I don't think he was responsible for anything. But basically the defending out there was poor."

"We've been in very good form but in fairness we didn't play well enough in the first half. We gave the ball away too much and our last-third play wasn't good enough. The crosses into the box were easy to deal with and we should be doing better than that."

"This team has bounced back before. I'm not worried about them bouncing back again. Our form has been very good recently, we have to get that back and get on another run."
