Man Utd boss Ferguson admits players confidence hit hard
On the eve of Wednesday's Champions League meeting with Bursaspor at Old Trafford, Ferguson confirmed the meek surrender against West Bromwich Albion was the result of near terror amongst his team faced with yet another collapse.
"The reason for the lack of response on Saturday was not to do with the game itself, it was to do with the previous matches where we have thrown points away," said Ferguson.
"They start thinking 'Christ, here is another one'. That is the impact you get. The conscious part comes into it.
"They are saying to themselves 'we are going to have to face the gaffer and explain this again'. But it is inexplicable."
