Ferguson See's Purple.....I Mean Red

Ferguson See's Purple.....I Mean Red

Sir Alex Ferguson rather absurdly claims match referee Howard Webb showed favoritism towards the Gunners and also attacked the level of security at Ashburton Grove.

First of all SAF believes that Arsenal received the benefit of the decisions in Saturday's high octane top of the table clash and rather bizarrely claimed that Louis Saha was fouled in the build up to the second equaliser.

'It is very difficult for the referee. I think that Howard Webb has a great chance to be the top ref, but today was a big game for him and at times he favoured Arsenal.' Said the Purple one.

If you forget the fact that there was no foul on Louis Saha, we had a certain penalty denied when Vidic tried swapping shirts with Alex Hleb, two Arsenal players received bookings for clean tackles AND Adebayor was ruled offside when clean through on goal when he wasn't........then he might just have a point.

Maybe he feels aggrieved because for a change one of the match officials actually spotted a ball that had crossed the line by a couple of metres?!!

Ferguson then went on to suggest that Ashburton Grove must be the first stadium in the world that he has ever had abuse levelled at him.

'Our own bench were getting terrible abuse from people two or three feet away, There is a lack of security here. It is absolutely disgraceful the abuse you and your staff take. All sorts of things are screamed and shouted at you. There is an absolute danger here.'

I'm sorry but the United manager is just looking for things to slag Arsenal off for here. Do you ever hear Arsene Wenger complaining about being called a pedophile by rival fans? No. Because the long and short of it is, every football club has it's idiots, and the best thing you can do is ignore them.

You can always tell when your team is worrying the Man U manager can't you!!

Up the Gunners.

I did laugh when I read his interview on BBC Sport. What do you expect if you go to one of your fiercest rivals ground?!! A cup of tea and some scones?! Sir Alex has been in the game long enough to know this is part of parcel of the game, so just squeeze your big purple nose of yours back on the bus to Mankland. He knows they were out played today and is worried. Look out Fergie, here come the Gunners!!!!

Spoken like a true knight of the realm, providing the realm in question is The realm of Wibble. Silly old bugger, why should'nt the people sitting around him complain about the smell of wee and stale whisky? Still I like the idea of The Grove becoming as intimidating as say Galatasary stadium.

How can the old soak criticize the ref for favouring Arsenal, when that stupid Brazilian kid was waving imaginary cards at the ref on two occasions without being cautioned for it. Two blatant pens not given and their first goal came after a foul in the middle of the park by that stupid Brazilian kid wasn't given. I, though, didn't watch the game full of wine (whine) and whiskey

I actually think that Man Utd got all the 50-50 decisions on the day.. mind you, Vidic's shirt pulling of Hleb was a pen.. so why is Fergie so angry? Quite simple. Arsenal didn't die down when they went behind yesterday and this team has shown a great amount of resilience.. fantastic to watch.
