United - Those Hairdryer Moments!

United - Those Hairdryer Moments!

Nothing stays the same in this world of ours and often progression isn`t for the better!

Think back to your own childhood days and recall things that were available then but have since disappeared off the radar and you might get my gist.

Time moves on and things change accordingly and apparently Old Trafford is caught up in the familiar theme with Sir Alex Ferguson openly admitting, in the media today, that the infamous hairdryer has been turned down a degree or two in recent years.

Apparently the footballer of today, compared to those of yesteryear, are not quite as tough or as Sir Alex explained to the media,

"I`ve mellowed a great deal. The world has changed and so have players` attitudes."

"Some players cry now in the dressing room and someone like Bryan Robson never used to cry."

"I`m dealing with more fragile human beings than I used to be. They are cocooned by modern parents, agents - even their own image at times."

"Young people today have an image of themselves and they need to be seen, so they have these tattoos and earrings. It`s a different world for me so I have to adapt."

"There is nothing wrong with losing your temper if it`s for the right reasons. But I never leave it till the next day. I don`t believe in that."

"Some managers wait till Monday when they say things are calmer, but I want to let it go after the game because I`m already planning for the next one."

"Once I let it go, it`s finished and I don`t bring it up again."


I wonder if any of the new cocooned players have ever had the temerity to contest his opinion in these traditional post-match rants!
