Let The Hatred Resume

Ok, maybe the word 'hate' is a little bit strong. 'Hate' should be reserved for vile, evil and villainous characters, but I'm sorry, when it comes to Alex Ferguson the word 'dislike' just does not cut the mustard.

Over the past few years Fergie had seemed to have mellowed somewhat, even paying regular compliments to the lord our Wenger. I actually seem to remember writing an article last year that the new and improved Fergie was almost becoming like-able.

However in light of recent events it appears that my initial assessment of SAF just being a cantankerous old so-and-so was correct.

It is apparent that anyone, or thing that Ferguson finds threatening he winds up / plays mind games with / insults, even if his facts don't add up, he opens his mouth and let fly with the bile.

In the past ten years we have heard many many comments coming from the Salford Reds camp regarding our players, manager and anything else to do with Arsenal, but his latest torrent of abuse is the most laughable of all.

Whilst Chelsea had their little stint at the top, 'purple face' saved the really special antics for the special one, as of course the Blues were his main rivals, but now the Gunners seem to be mounting a challenge his old pal Wenger has been put back in the firing line.

Yet whilst I sit, with boiling blood, at some of Fergie's comments, I have to say I've missed all of this, and that's it's good to be back.

You know that when you're on the wrong end of one of the mad Scotsman's outbursts, that you're really back in the big time.

Why is your blood boiling Rocky? Your last line sums it up well - the Arsenal is back, and so is the rivalry with the mancs. And long may that continue (though I think Chelsea will also be around this season). Looks to be a cracking season ahead of us. The only thing disturbing about his comments were his attempts to influence the ref the next time he officiates a ManU game. The rest - we can simply chuckle at.

Spot on - my thoughts entirely! It's all bluster to cover up his concern over the emerging Gunners. TW@

I've always been a very passionate person, and Fergie's mind games work very well on I don't play for the Gunners for two reasons 1) All this ***** really winds me up and I would end up getting sent off ... and b) I am very shlt at football!!!

Why can't you use the word 'hate' if used against the most obnoxious snake ever to wriggle onto a football pitch. Remember his tactics in October 2004, despicable ........ Fill your own hate word in.

I didn't really have time to elaborate, but picking up a point I made on the article below. This is a massive own goal by Ferguson, Wenger can easily manipulate this situation to his advantage, all he has to say to his team is a) you're obviously in the title race now and b) Ferguosn is scared of you, he hasn't made any such comments about Chelsea or Liverpool. Plato once said, "nothing so effectually robs a man of his powers of reasoning than fear." Fergie looks desperate, we can use this as fuel.
