Fergie Wants Another FA Cup

Manchester United may have won the FA Cup more than any other team- 11 times- but they have not held it aloft since 2004.

The Red Devils take on West Ham United in their third-round replay tonight, and manager Alex Ferguson has demanded victory from his players.

Fergie is the oldest manager in the Premier League, and this season he is taking a must-win approach to the world’s oldest cup competition.

And with a place in the next round against Fulham at stake, Fergie says it is high time United add another FA Cup crown to their collection.

"We want to try and have a go at this FA Cup,'' Ferguson told MUTV.

"We haven't had a run for a long time, two or three years, and we have had some bad draws.

"We're at home tonight and we have got to take advantage of that. If we get through, we have got another home tie so there's a big incentive for the club to make sure we get through.''

Neither Nemanja Vidic nor Ashley Young will play tonight, despite having recovered from the injuries they sustained last weekend against Liverpool.

But in good news for United, Wayne Rooney and Nani are both fit to torment the Hammers backline if Fergie calls on them to do so.

"Wayne coming back is good news,'' Ferguson said. "He's been training for a week and looking good.''

"Nani came back from his spell abroad and is really looking very good."
