Ferguson Wimps Out Of Abuse Case

Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Arsenal Football Club have asked his people to produce a dosier of the abuse he and his staff alledegly recieved at Ashburton Grove last Saturday.

The United manager claim he and his staff suffered 'obscene' abuse at the hands of Gooners sat only yards away, proclaiming there is 'a very real danger' at the Arsenal stadium.

'Arsenal have asked our security people to compile a report on the incident,' he said.

'But I am sure they will have CCTV cameras in the ground that would have allowed them to pick up what happened.'

Is it just me or is Fergie backing out a little bit here? If there is a 'very real danger' then things have been set in motion to rid our stadium of these supposed morons, and the UTD manager should be backing this play.

Surely SAF is not so old and senile that he believes a football stadium CCTV system can pick up individual voices of each and every of the 60,161 supporters in the ground? Any camera footage wouldn't be conclusive as we have no idea of what was said in the confrontation, for all we know the 'offenders' could have shouted 'Hey Fergie, your team is shite' and that's hardly abuse to moan about now is it?

No, I think he is back tracking because, as suspected, the old man has blown this out of all proportion in a desperate and pathetic attempt to wind everyone at Arsenal Football Club up.

I wonder what kind of abuse Wenger must suffer at OT or for that matter other grounds, never hear him complain about that.

If Fergie has cause for complaint against a couple of fans, then Wenger has cause for complaint against a couple of thousand fans in every stadium in England.

Are the FA bottling bringing Ferguson to book for reason of his age or his knighthood? If Wenger had uttered the same thing about Webb he'd have been fined on the spot and marched to a cashpoint, just exactly how far does this codger have to go before being reprimanded? Or do the FA think that like Chiles' General Pinochet he would'nt survive the ordeal so what's the point? It's times like this when you see beneath the world renowned manager for who he really is - just a cheap hood fae Glasgae.

Seems Fergie is marching to a different tune from his compatriots. In his post match interview Queiroz says we should be 'congratulated on a great atmosphere' that 'There were two good teams - draw was a fair result' and he was 'pleased with not losing' Giggs said 'They did to us what we have done to other teams - just have to take it in the chin'. We are clearly getting under the sad old gits skin. Squeaky bum time seems to have come a bit too early for him this season.

I suppose given the huge debt his club is in it's understandable if he gets a wee bit stressed, can't imagine the Glazers being too chuffed if he fails to retain the championship after the amount he spent pre-season.......

I'd like to point out an incident at Old Trafford when we played there in Dec 02. I was sat next to the Yoonited fans and spotted someone making a racial slur at an Arsenal fan sat near me (Mad Mickey for anyone who might know him) and when I reported the incident to a steward I was told to shut up or I'd be ejected. United employ firm members as stewards, following the fracas at the final whistle in 03, we were subjected to sustained violence between the away end and the car park and were refused protection by stewards, the police had to step in while the stewards watched on. THAT Ferguson is a disgrace, as well as the thousands of fans who indulge in chants against Wenger but get all high and mighty about Munich. This sanctimonious attitude is matched only by Pool fans who, rightly, remember Hillsbrough, but refuse to honour the victims of Heysel with any sort of memorial.

What do you expect from BITCH... I mean, BITC. He loves to read his own typing, he jacks off everytime he types. Yes, all clubs should operate like Chelski. Pay several millions for money-hungry mercenaries, I'm sure Chelski fans will say the likes of Sheva was a brillant buy, get in a huge debt and have a Russian billionare bail you out by paying all that debt. What happens if that Russian decides to leave? Well, get ready to be the next Leeds. Btw, BITC, why are you not running your mouth today with your usual crap like Chelski will be winning everything? Is it because Chelski couldn't score against Schalke? I thought Chelski was playing beautiful now?

How many guys can simultaneously be " two or three feet" away from you? Not many, so in other words, SAF was a abused by a few people. Now, when we go to OT, a 75,000 capacity stadium sings to the rafters that Arsene is a paedophile. SAF needs to get a grip
This whole moaning thing he is onto, the abuse, the ref, Blatter's opinion, is simply a sign we are back to where we used to be. The last couple of years when we've been totally off the pace, he wasn't said a negative thing about us. People even said his relationship with Arsene had improved. Tosh. It's just that we weren't challenging. But now that we are...

It's absolute ********* and he was just spouting off in the aftermath of a galling comeback from the Arsenal. He thought the 3 points were in the bag. Unlucky Fergie, you red-faced tossbag! Poor him though - the first time in 20+ years of management he's been to an away game and had abuse shouted at him! What a record!

For someone to get slung out, the abuse must have gone beyond the normal abuse that managers get.

Yes, Spurs fans know how to behave. Arsenal fans should have done what a Spurs fan did last season against Chelski, run up to Ferguson and took a swing at him.
