Relief - No Christmas Party At United This Year

Sir Alex Ferguson banned the players' planned X-mas party. This is a relief, really: there's no need for another controversy which engulfed United last December and January.

The press had a field day with last season's shenanigans which allegedly involved dozens of ladies and gallons of alcohol... Some of the lasses, seeking extra attention, even tried to sell some spicey details to the press but these were less successful than the overall coverage of the whole event.

But really, why should we present such easy opportunities? We will be blasted and talked about whenever any decision goes our way - and of course there will be deep silence when one goes against us but this is unimportant right now. The important bit is that I was sick after the umpteenth reference to the players' infamous party last season; hopefully now we'll be spared.
