Egg On Levy's Face Now?

Egg On Levy's Face Now?

Daniel Levy has already submitted an official complaint to FA about United's behaviour in relation to Dimitar Berbatov. The Spurs chairman was particularly angered by a comment attributed to Sir Alex Ferguson in which the big man allegedly boasted we were close to reach an agreement.

Fergie later denied it and now it transpired that a Swedish fans' website was responsible for creating this confusion, for which they have apologised.

It might seem like we are to blame for what has happened,' admitted a Scandinavian supporter's branch's webmaster Steinar Madsen to Aftonposten.

'We are to the blame in the sense how the interview was presented. Ferguson didn't mention the name Berbatov when he was interviewed by us.

'I would call it a misunderstanding. It was tricky conditions for the interview.

'As journalists, you have probably experienced this yourself, how it is to listen to the tape afterwards.

'That can cause problems and Ferguson's accent is not too easy to understand to start with.

'Ferguson confirmed that United had tabled an offer.

'We assumed it was Berbatov he was talking about. We might have taken it too far.'

These comments were widely published and many self-righteous souls wasted no time in calling Fergie a hypocrite yet they, along with Levy, are left with egg on their faces now.

As Spurs did not reveal what other evidences they had against United I am very curious about what will happen to their complain now that it's cornerstone was proved to be nothing more but the product of an overenthusiastic imagination.

Hmmmm, a journalist from a non-uk country atributed as a source for the current bun? five days after the event, surely not? ;) If therre's anyone out there in Man U land (so pretty much anyone outside of the UK) who believes this latest load of toss then they are more gullible than the reporter who believes it when Mr Whinger says 'I did not see it' for the first time this season. Turn it in, no egg, no face, just the arrogant ***** getting away with it. The FA are a joke and won't follow through as it's not in their interest to do so. No, it happens, we move on. Enjoy the sulky one up at your gaff, he is quality despite his mood swings, certainly an improvement on Saha. Fergie will tap up who he likes until the day his pickled liver gives up. 'Wouldn't let me sons go to madrid' of course not when they've been creaming the coffers off manure for so long in the past. Does he think everyone is as thick as his players?
Tricky the spur

Levy may or may not have egg on his face but at least he does not have a much more worrying permanent problem. IE Broken capillaries (small blood vessels) on his face due to excessive alcohol consumption ! :) Thank you and goodnight !

lol at you STILL thinking that this article is anything to do with the dossier that was handed to the FA. Those quotes were to show the hypocracy of Fergie not the evidence to convict him with. All this shows is that your club dont have a clue what is against them and still think it's the paper talk. If i was you i would buy a clue before you get spanked at the tribunal. To give you an idea of the right way to go, the case against Liverpool hasn't got anything to do with Rafa's comments but from LFC representatives asking Keane without permission from the club if he would want to play from them and then asking him to sign a pre-agreement. Thats one episode and we have a whole year of them on you, so i suggest stop reading the daily mail, this is the equivalent of you lot thinking the example question at the start of your GCSE's is the whole test. You can put your pencils down now if you like lads, but i dont see you making mummy and daddy very happy when your results come in. LMAO

I'll have 3, scrampled please, with a bit of cheese and some brown sauce. Yummy.

I thought it was your fans with egg on their faces when you realize our complaint isn't solely based on a quote from a trash rag, it was just the straw that broke the camels back

Regardless of the outcome, Utd's reputation in clean transfer dealing is at an all time low. Nobody will care eitherway what is proven or not - we all know what goes on with Fergie and his sidekicks. I think Levy only did it to create a noise so Utd up their offer and get themselves out of the limelight anyway.
