Fergie happy to swat 'noisy neighbour'

Fergie was understandably in fine spirits post-derby on Sunday after Michael Owen's stoppage time strike sunk City 4-3 at Old Trafford and increased Manchester Uniteds football betting odds.
In what the United gaffer described as 'the best derby of all-time' it was United who came out on top and silenced their 'nosiy neighbour'.
That was how Sir Alex described United's cross-City rivals after all the pre-season hype and the Carlos Tevez poster campaign which had clearly irked the United supremo.
Ferguson had slammed City as arrogant referring to the inappropriate poster of Tevez in Manchester City centre which read 'welcome to Manchester' and he made reference to the offensive poster again ahead of derby day.
But with seconds remaining it looked as though Fergie would have to settle for a share of the spoils and bit his lip, despite taking the lead three times, until Owen popped up with his second goal for the Premier League champions.
"Sometimes you have a noisy neighbour. You cannot do anything about that. They will always be noisy," said Ferguson.
"You just have to get on with your life, put your television on and turn it up a bit louder.
"Today the players showed their form. That is the best answer of all.
"We could have had six or seven today."
Mistakes from Ben Foster and Rio Ferdinand twice let the visitors back into the game and Ferguson added: "The fact we made those mistakes probably made it the best derby game of all time.
"What would you rather have, a 6-0 win or the greatest derby of all time? I would prefer to win 6-0."
