Bitter Fergie Resorts To Petty Jibes

Bitter Fergie Resorts To Petty Jibes

It seems Alex Fergusson doesn't have the tactical nous to pull Arsene Wenger's team to bits, or even common sense to shut his mouth.

The United manager made petty jibes towards the Arsenal manager after Mathieu Flamini revealed Wenger had told his boys they could still win the game in his half time team talk in the victory over Man Utd last week.

Flamini claimed that Arsene had told his squad that the Man Utd team tire towards that last 20 minutes of a match and tend to ship in goals in that time.

Ol' purple nose responded with the classiest of remarks.

'I am not sure what his point was; maybe he was trying to make himself look great again - 'I am the great Arsène Wenger'.'

His point was Fergie, that your team DOES tire towards the end, it DOES concede late goals in an almost embarrassingly fashion at that point of a game and Arsenal HAVE scored more late goals this season than any other team in the league.

So I guess what Mr. Wenger was trying to get across was that Arsenal could still win the game, HEY, and guess what?! They beat you for the second time this season.

It's called 'man management' Fergie, you should try it instead of shooting your mouth off before you blow your chance at a title for the first time in four years.

It's nice that things are getting back to normal though. Chelsea re sh** again, and Fergie & Wenger are taunting each other....and once again, Spurs are mid table!!

As much as i hope man u beat chelsea to the title, cos if we are honest with ourselves neither us or liverpool are gonna get there this season, i wish ferguson and mourinho would both be banned from speaking, with high court gag orders. Everytime either one of the two quacks open there mouth you just think that all the crap could've been avoided if they thought before they spoke (so thats where Beckham and Joe Cole got it from). I hate Man U, but hate chelski more. And anyways, 'He is the great Arsene Wenger', but still that doesnt mean something Flamini said in French is word for word what Wenger said in English, and it wasnt like he even said it to the press so maybe Fergie should worry more about what he's saying to his team than what Arsene's saying to the gunners.

How is Wenger making himself look great again by telling his players to not give up in the final minutes. It wasnt Wenger who even came out in public with the comment.

I say we should enjoy the Fergie - Wenger 'wars' while we can. Fergie is bound to retire in a few seasons and the older he is, the sillier he gets. Now he is replying to words that Wenger could never have said, and it could be that Flam is just taking the pi$$ out of everyone. This season saw Mr. Wenger raise a few eyebrows by losing his calm when provoked by the tw*t in charge of Charlton, which was something we've never seen before. With Jose in sh1te up to his ears, the reigniting of the rivalry between the two is just a blessing in disguise! And as Rocky said, it is a sign of things going back to normal. I bet Flamster is laughing somewhere...

I bet Fergie is on his way down to the Emirates right now.......Not to apologise or sort this argument out he just cant remember what week were in! He's forgotten we played (and beat) United last week. Senile old fool. If you see an old guy sleeping on the piccadilly line smelling of whisky that'll be Fergie!

What a load of crap. United DOES tire, you say? They conceded goals (and lost points) in the last 20 minutes against Newcastle, Arsenal, West Ham, Copenhagen and Celtic. Scored important goals in the last 20 minutes against Boro, Villa, Reading, Charlton, Sheffield, Man City and now Pompey. So, do we tire or are we strong at the end? I believe it was Flamini who started all this with his nonsense claims. But of course his brain is not his strongest point. Shame his football is mediocre, too...
