Straw Breaks Camels Back!

Straw Breaks Camels Back!

I guess even a Knight of the Realm can only push the boundaries so far!

It`s probably fair to say that Sir Alex Ferguson has been treading a fine line this season with regards to remarks he`s made about officials in his post match interviews.

Sir Alex tells it as it is and after the 1-1 draw, at White Hart Lane, the following comments appear to have been the straw that broke the camels back,

"It was a clear penalty but there was no way the linesman was going to give that. He gave them everything."

Sir Alex has been asked by the Football Association (FA) to explain his rant and the Scot has until 18:00 hours on Thursday to reply.

If things don`t go Sir Alex`s way, then he can expect either a fine or a touch-line ban, or even both!

I don't recall Redknapp or Mancini facing sanctions after being asked to explain their comments, wouldn't shock me though if Fergie is made an example of again.

Can see the FA making an example of Fergie here. Either way it's punishment or the halfwit conspiracy theorists fire up with their usual crap. It also appears someone rattled Benitez's cage he's in the papers this morning mouthing off about it and calling Materazzi a liar. The mans a head case he'll have a list next fact.

Rafa is most probably cracking under the pressure again, he was brought in to bring the best out of Torres and his monumentally flopped at that not to mention his already lost one cup final, knocked them out of the champions league and looks to be on his way out of the capital one cup and in the league the league performances are no better than under di matteo. Statistically speaking his also had the worst start at Chelsea out of every manager they've had. The only reason Fergie will be made an example of is solely to please those dimwitted conspiracy theorists. The FA will make a pointless statement how they're not under his influence, not that those claims need to be disproved anyway as the ridiculousness of them disproves them alone.

'Sir Alex tells it as it is.' Lame footballspeak for impugning the reputation of a linesman, and suggesting ulterior motives for that lineman's decision. Just the qualities needed these days to elevate a monosyllabic gorbals git to knight of the realm. Pass the sick bag.
