Last Sunday Sir Whingy Face continued his long standing trend of grabbing the headlines away from teams that have beaten Man Utd. The only possible motive is to steal the other teams thunder, have the press focus on Fergie and not the result. Sir Red Nose Thunder Thief is nothing short of a spoil sport and general bad loser.
After Sunday's defeat to local rivals Man City Fergie refused to speak to the press as he sulked in his office. Instead he dispatched his minion Carlos Queiroz to blame International football and fatigued players on the defeat. Of course Man City's International players could not have been tired at all.
Just for once could Fergie face the press and hold his hands up and say "we were beaten fair and square" or "Well done to them, they done us!"
He did exactly the same thing in 2006 when Norwich City beat Man U 2-0. Yes that's right. Norwich beat United 2-0 with super goals from Dean Ashton and Leon McKenzie. If you don't remember the game that's because the following days press was filled with stories of Fergie's anger at losing to lil old Narridge. He refused to speak to the press, acted like a tantrum-throwing toddler at Carrow Road and sent a minion to issue the expected excuses to SKY TV. That day City played the game of their season, outplayed the champs and received little credit for doing so.
Mourinho, Benitez, O'Neill, Wenger. Whatever you think of them, that bunch would never act so childishly.
When all is said and done Fergie may be one of the greatest league managers ever. He will also be remembered for being the most ungracious.
My Man Utd supporting friend Adam said this morning "There's only two types of loser. Sore losers and losers. I'm happy with sore."
Sore losers ARE just losers. And to me, Fergie is the biggest of all.
