Fergie confident of getting through Group stage..

Fergie's latest reaction to what has been a summer of transfer disappointments comes on the day of the Celtic home game in the Champions League.

Last season United only managed to score three goals in Group stage D, and that was with Ruud playing for the club. Van Niselrooy had been prolific in Europe and on the domestic front, yet having sold him to Madrid this summer, United failed to replace the big Dutchman.

Nonetheless and despite the lack of goals last season in the Champions League, Fergie says, it will take something 'strange' for United not to progress beyond the group stages this season.

Fergie told United Review: "I believe it will take something strange to stop us qualifying from our Champions League group this time."

United are in a very easy looking group this year, so United should progess beyond the group stage even without replacing Ruud Van Nistelrooy.

As for the rest of the season and United's hopes of winning more silvereware, many fans view the clubs inactivity in the transfer market this summer as 'strange' because they haven't replaced Ruud and they only signed one half decent midfield player.

According to the number crunchers, United are this summers lowest net spenders. Talk is cheap.
