'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Standing His Ground!

Over in the land of sunshine and extreme heat, Sir Alex Ferguson has once again spoken to the attentive media.

This time, when pressed on our disciplinary record (off the field), Sir Alex has remarked,

"I think sometimes there is an unfair focus on Unite don disciplinary issues."

"It will always be there and I think we know that."

"I don`t really know whether it`s about me or the club, that`s a difficult one. Maybe there is some resentment about United at the top level because of our success since the Premier League began."

"I think that has got something to do with it, really."

"They have certainly always found a way to treat us differently."

"It`s been happening for a while now and they always seem to find a way to do us when, with others, it`s seemingly forgotten."

"Personally I felt hard done by last season."

"I defend my club, that`s my job."

"Part of the problem is that when I make comments, the media are on the FA right away."

"There is no doubt about that."

"They`re afraid at what might happen if they don`t"


Strong views there from Sir Alex but is he right or is he becoming a little paranoid?

Yeah, and Tevez is crap and you never wanted him either. Voldemort in 1998: "That is without question part of our future planning is to have Carlos Tevez at the club on a long-term situation and I think David Gill is progressing that as best he can," declared Ferguson. "But there is no question we all want him to stay - including the club, the directors and David Gill - and hopefully we can come to that solution." Yes, I am calling your manager a liar.

Oops, wrong article.

No he's right but it's only expected that a club with our influence in the world acts appropriately and sets the right example. Fergie expects his players to act professional or, more fairly, their age but what can he do if they don't? Do you give a key player, a massive reason for your financial and footballing success, the boot because of something completely unrelated to the club, football and the profession in general simply? The simple fact is the modern world has become to expectant of it's icons and role models, that and the kids of today seem to pick the 5h1ttiest role models possible.

tevez stood in front of united thophy room and said " dang , look how many trophies, this place is for winnerss" then he went to sh.it.y trophy romm and almost cried saying , i cant belive i left glory (man utd) and ended up playing in a completely unknown team, i gotta leave"......................and to that clown that asked whos rio ferdinand in a previous post the only answer is: if you support s.h.it.y then its normal that you dont know rio , you dont know bout football
RedDevilKile
Ah the enlightening and lucid comments of reddickedkylie. Keep up the good work matey, pure comedy gold, in the manner of the idiot savante - or possibly even the sub-genius.
fifthcolumnblue
kinda like tevez?
RedDevilKile
Tevez rejected the rags for City Rddick - get over it, and get used to it. Anyone seen the pathetic attempts of Patrice Evra to try and get Nasri to choose the rags over City? Thought players were queuing up to join the rags and weren'teven interested in us? Of course when they do choose City it's only for the money, right? The new bitters of trafford PMSL.

Well it ain't for the glorious history now is it.
Kanchelskis
History means absolutely feck all Kanchelskis - just ask Liverpool. Players join clubs that have the best chance of providing them with glory during their careers - not because George Best used to play for them. Nowadays, City have just as much chance of winning things as manure (looking at the state of your midfield some might say more chance), so players are more than happy to come to us regardless of money.
fifthcolumnblue
History means feck all? Well maybe someone should tell that to Madrid because they've been living off it for far too long and every player that joins them believes it's because they're next Zidane. I'm also pretty certain it's Liverpools history that keeps them financially afloat. Don't be too quick to dismiss the influence a gloriuous history has. Also, looking at our midfield, yes it's poor but have you seen your width? No?! Oh yeah of course, you haven't got any. I won't deny some City players joining you for setting history for the club and being part of something which will soon become a force but you can't deny the Adebayor's, Bridge's, Bellamy's and Tevez's, to name but a few, mercenary motives.
TheFamousNo7
I agree about Bridge and Adebayor coming for the money. Hell, Adebayor wasn't wanted, Bridge was a perrenial bench-warmer, so they saw the opportunity and took it with both hands. Bellamy didn't come for the money though, he is a Hughes loyalist. Tevez came because he knew it would wind up Taggart. All of these players came at the beginning of the "project" though. The rest of our players, despite being labelled as mercenaries by the media and rival fans really are here to make history. One thing history does give you is a high profile and the ability to market yourselves, which is why also-rans like Liverpoor still have a high profile - but I think in modern football that type of romantic olde-worlde charm is fading fast and the playing field is much more level when it comes to how well known clubs are - it suits Sky to promote the hell out of the brand as it is, not as it was in the old days.
