Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson celebrated his 67th birthday on Wednesday convinced the experience of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville will assist in a sustained title challenge. "It has been a great year," Ferguson told the Manchester Evening News. "We've won four trophies, including the Community Shield - and want more.
"They are a young side and they are hungry, but what really helps them is Neville, Giggs and Scholes.
"You saw them at Stoke and not one of them made a mistake. Between the three of them they were magnificent.
"I brought on Neville and Scholes against Middlesbrough and that made a difference.
"They are showing the rest of the players how you win titles. It's that experience that will help us."
