United - Preston Rap!

United - Preston Rap!

'Just because you`re losing` used to be a popular terrace chant and we`ve a feeling it`s more than apt for our next article.

Once again, Preston North End, who are languishing in the relegation zone in the Championship, have come out and blamed Sir Alex Ferguson for their plight.

You may recall that upon hearing his son, Darren, had been sacked at Deepdale, Sir Alex recalled the players United had on loan at the club, most notably Joshua King and Richie De Laet.

Now some way down the road with Preston looking doomed their chairman, Maurice Lindsay, has stoked the fires again, casting blame in our direction, by uttering,

"Sir Alex acted in a different way than some people would and took all the players he had on loan."

"It`s fairly obvious we paid the price for terminating the contract of his so. It was like having four tyres punctured on the same car."

Life can be a bitch mate, just what did you expect Sir Alex to do, congratulate you?

Taggart's behaviour was petulant and immature, but Preston have nobody but themselves to blame for being relegation fodder.

NO! I expect "Sir" Alex to be a bit more of a gentleman and stop acting like a petulant child. The way he leapt to the defence of his son was pathetic. We are a real town, with real fans who support their home town team and Fergie is just swinging his big red fists. Pure bullying and abuse of power. And Man U fans are so incredibly fickle (even the few who are actually from Manchester). Then he got Pulis to recall his players. PATHETIC. The green and yellow brigade are missing every synaptic gap in their body!

It's not Fergie's fault they're pretty much going to get relegated. Granted it was petulant to recall them but there's still plenty of Preston player's there, is there not? In their short time there you can't expect me to believe they became such influential characters in the team. Preston's shortcomings is due to their quality of football, nothing more.

I wasn't blaming Fergie Snr for our demise; I hold the Preston board wholly responsible. I am also holding them responsible for hiring the most useless manager we've had since Tommy Docherty decades ago (that’s a statistical fact). What I'm saying is that Fergie Snr's reaction to his son being sacked was that of a bully and a child. The Man U loan players were doing well for us - especially James and De Laet, but that is irrelevant to my point. If Fergie rates his son so highly why doesn't he take him to Old Trafford? Fergie Snr has been in the game long enough to realise the harsh reality of club management - if he truly loved his son then he would have told him to get down the job centre and find another profession. I'm so fed up with Man U and Fergie - their constant bullying and the way they get away with stuff other teams wouldn't. They are destroying the game. It's rotting the very essence of English football. In fact no - world football. If Man U fans don’t mind getting caught up in the ludicrous world that is top flight football and all the rubbish that comes along with it, then fine, but don’t drag genuine teams with REAL fans into that fickle, plastic world. If Fergie Snr was any sort of man he would have honoured the loan and let the loan players stay until the end of the contract - not recalled the players then called his mate, Pulis, and tell him to take back Pugh and Tonge to punish us for sacking his useless son. Probably bullied Pulis into that reaction though.

We're destroying the game? You can't be serious. I understand your frustration but the hysteria in the comment is unbelievable.
16/03/2011 15:37:00
I am being deadly serious McEnroe. Yout blinkered faith in everything that is Man U in unbelievable and what makes it more preposterous is that I bet you are not even from Manchester, nevermind Salford! I'm not singleing out United - City, Liverpool, Chelsea et al are all just as guilty. I wish you would all n4ff off to a European Elite season long league and let the rest of us REAL fans get on with REAL football. The standard of football may drop, but at least we'd have our game back........................................
