'Different` Levy Left Red-Faced

'Different` Levy Left Red-Faced

Ferguson has today laughed off Daniel Levy`s moronic little rant; totally discrediting any morsel of proof the club thought they had by revealing the quotes found in 'The Sun` regarding a bid for Berbatov, were simply fiction.

On the face of it, any right-minded individual could see that Levy`s quotes were born from pure desperation, desperation to please the fans that flock to White Hart Lane each season with the promise of false glory.

Perhaps we should not have been surprised by Levy`s outburst, as for a man with an honorary degree from Cambridge University, his words were somewhat intelligent; with the aim to turn the Spurs faithful against the players in question, as to lessen the blow when the pair inevitably jump ship. Though the media chose to use his words as gospel, those of us which share at least half a brain cell between us could see the man was backed into a corner and fearful of his job. Over the years, Spurs have instilled a confidence into their fans, cunningly building up morale with the occasional transfer coup and the guarantee of success - only for it to all blow up in their faces in a pathetically inevitable fashion. Last season saw this pattern alter....slightly; with the acquisition of the Carling Cup - their first major trophy in over nine years.

Though the season entailed after that, morale at the club was at an all time high, and the familiar 'Liverpool syndrome` had spread around North year was THEIR year! And then suddenly gravity hit and they came crashing down to earth, with the news their two best players were seeking pastures new. Inevitably, the fans were peeved, and not for the first time they were questioning their clubs ambition. The club needed to act, but like a 14-year old alone in their room they caught with their trousers down, and they panicked. Hardly surprising, is it?

Perhaps not, but that doesn`t take away from the sheer lunacy of it; and without taking a second look to verify whether or not the quotes attributed to Ferguson which apparently prove unlawful activity were actually true or not, Levy burst into an inane rant head on. As mentioned above, the media clung on to it like a new-born baby on their mother`s teet; labelling Ferguson both "arrogant" and "hypocritical". Indeed, along with this media came the even more fickle Spurs fans which flocked onto this site spouting their 'holier-tan-thou` crap about how we lacked class and dignity.

Well, today it seems Levy, the media and fans have hit something of a brick wall in the form of Sir Alex Ferguson, who has stopped them all in their path with the "news" that the quotes are untrue. I write "news" because to us in the know, we always knew these quotes were untrue, and were taken from some obscure Norwegian website, a revelation first picked up on by members of - days before the quotes found themselves on the front cover of the Sun`s "Exclusive Interview" - unsurprisingly written by the slimy leech Neil Custis.

Well, Mr. Custis I hope you have egg on your face after Ferguson revealed your "Exclusive" was nothing more than bullshit? Speaking after the rather dull 1-1 draw with South African side Kaiser Chiefs, Ferguson laughed off Levy`s little hissifit.

"It`s going to be very embarrassing for them (Spurs) because it appears to be on the basis of a story in The Sun."

"I don`t know where the hell they got those quotes from, but it certainly wasn`t from me. It`s embarrassing for them, but you know what Daniel Levy is like. He`s different."

"It`s something to ask (United chief executive) David Gill about because I haven`t really spoken to him about it today because I`ve been preparing for the match. I haven`t read it, but I`m sure our legal people will be looking at it before I do."

Yes, Levy sure is "different". Poor bald-headed little twat is probably scoffing on humble pie as we speak. Oh, how I long to be a fly on the wall in Mr. Levy`s house the moment he opens the Sunday paper`s. Classic.

Oh, and feel free to have your say on Levy`s little rant below, but please BEWARE - this news is sure to attract your typical Spurs fan, so grab your spectacles and get braced...there be fools a coming.

lol if you think Levy will only be presenting the sun article as evidence. The comments made by your manager were those of someone who is scared and in reagrds to sun remarks he is testing the water to see if Levy will come out and actually tell SIR alex what he has on him. That wont happen until the inquest starts. Have fun. Oh and if you think this is all an angry outburst which will lead to nothing, why not ask a chelsea fan what happened when they tapped up are DOF and played it off as nothing : D

naa, thats ok zzsz, because our case is totally different...we havent "tapped" anyone up.
20/07/2008 10:32:00
Smacks of desperation when you actually believe that our chairman would actually make a complaint based on an article from a 3rd rate newspaper (who, incidently, have always helped your cause when it comes to transfer dealings in the past and, I'm sure, will help you again in the future) and not from other evidence. If this was the case, our chairman would have sued your lot back in January. We'll see what comes out in the inquest.

how have u not tapped Berbatov up then?
20/07/2008 15:34:00
OK, so if Fergie denies the fact that he made those comments, why the hell did your very own Jame Tuck of the official Man U website run the story from the Sun, entitled 'Berba's Mine', BEFORE the complaint was released??? Oh and there is no indication that these 'quotes' weren't fact.

Guess the boys at Man U HQ seemed to think Mr Custis wasn't telling porkies after all huh?? U turn ya think? I reckon it would of been more fun to see Fergie's face get redder when he realised he had to go out in front of the cameras and deny everything he'd said........LMAO
