Come on Fergie ... are you picking the Newcastle team now?

Although to be honest, I wished the bugger was!!!

Sir Alex Ferguson: "The disciplinary situation does confuse you at times.

"No one is really clear about it. But in actual fact we did not want the boy suspended because now he can play against Chelsea and Arsenal.

"In Newcastle's position, with the injuries they have at the moment, it would have been devastating for them to lose that player. I am not really upset about it at all.

"Arsene Wenger claims there is a bit of arrogance about Cristiano Ronaldo

"What Arsene said was it appears like arrogance.

"There is a difference and I can understand what he is saying.

"When a player expresses himself in such an entertaining way, defenders don't enjoy it.

"It was exactly the same when George Best was a player.

"It is not so much that they are prepared to do what they do, it is that they are encouraged to do it.

"That is the great asset Ronaldo holds. He has this wonderful courage. He just wants to entertain and do something good with the ball."
