This time, COS reader Jordan isn’t best pleased about Sir Alex’s post-match comments.
It would be foolish to challenge the passion of a Scot – let alone an alcoholic one. Upon Manchester United’s 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium, Sir Alex Ferguson, traditionally, criticised not only the opposition and referee, but also the actual security of this immaculate stadium – Ashburton Grove. The fuming red pigmentation on Ferguson’s nose had not been satisfied with the control of the passionate crowd at the Emirates:
“It is very difficult for the referee. On our bench, we were getting terrible abuse from people two or three feet away from us.
“There is a lack of security here. It is absolutely disgraceful the abuse you and your staff take. All sorts of things are been shouted and screamed at you and there is an absolute danger here.”
Ironic you say? Anyone of a sound mind would know that to endure 90 minutes of Football at Old Trafford as an opposing fan is similar to being tortured by the Vietminh. Maybe the nine glasses of double-strength whiskey influenced this declaration? With the press accusing ‘Didhedive’ Drogba of whinging and moaning, the focus really should be on this red-nosed Scot.
Whilst they say that alcohol can never get the best of you, the inflamed pigmentation and arteries to Ferguson’s face must really be preventing him from the subtleness in which we experienced when Manchester United were winning. Coincidence? I think not.
They say we must kill one to save many- or is it to kill many to save one? Well, in this case, should others be losing to Manchester United so that Sir Alex can both perform on the pitch and at home with his misses?
The answer to that in its most revised and censored way is – ‘Get F****d Sir Alex!’
