Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is refusing to get carried away by talk of winning five trophies this season.[LNB] United lifted their second prize of the season after overcoming Tottenham in the final of the Carling Cup in a dramatic penalty shoot-out.[LNB]Ferguson's side are still well-placed to win the Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League with expectation growing they could secure all five trophies up for grabs this season.[LNB]However, the wily Scot is keeping his feet on the ground ahead of this Wednesday's league trip to Newcastle.[LNB]"The great advantage I have is I won't get carried away with it," said Ferguson.[LNB]"We'll keep our feet on the ground. It would be great to think we could do it but my experience says we could go to Fulham next weekend, get a deflected shot off someone's backside and we're out of the FA Cup. [LNB]Good weekend"But it was a good weekend for us - you hope your opponents drop points. [LNB]"The best thing we can do is gather ourselves and energise ourselves for Newcastle on Wednesday. [LNB]"I'll freshen it up in some positions and, hopefully, we'll get the result we want." [LNB]
