Default Today's Fergie programme notes

The full text from today's programme:-

"One for all, and all for one... its a terrible cliche, but nevertheless it does sum up one of the essentials for success in team sport.

The family of Manchester United is under pressure as a result of all the issues and controversies surrounding the ownership and financial situation of the club that have been stirred up in the media.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and to express disapproval if the don't like what they see around them. Just as it has always been the right of the fans to let it be known if they are not happy with the way their team are playing.

I'm not slow to express disapproval myself if something I don't agree with - even in the boardroom with the directors. But once I walk out of the meeting I get on with my job as manager of the team.

Some of our fans are clearly unhappy with the financial position, but we mustn't allow the situation to become divisive. The danger, as I see it, is that we could be presented as being split, which would be harmful and inaccurate because I believe the vast majority of United fans are behind us and appreciate the importance of standing together in support of the team.

I could see our opponents rubbing their hands with glee at the thought of watching us fall out among ourselves if we don't all think carefully about what we are doing.

We must not lose our focus - which, from where I stand, is about building a strong football team that will win trophies. That's what we are about, or at least should be.

We must remain loyal to the cause of Manchester United. The staff and players should be quite one-eyed about that, and stay true to the history of the club and all the work done by Sir Matt Busby and the other managers who have contributed to creating the great club we have at Old Trafford today.

This is not about stifling criticism; it's simply a plea to stand together rather than take action that will damage ourselves more than anyone else.

Manchester United is bigger than me, the players, the directors, officials and the fans. And particularly at this critical stage of our season, we need to pull in the same direction.

It would be a shame to lose our concentration now because I can really see light at the end of the tunnel as we ready ourselves to push for the championship."

He's been saying this type of shit for nearly 5 years now. People who think he is going to resign or even say a bad word against the Glazers. It is good that the staff appear to be letting their discontent known and the players seem to be supporting this if the Carrington thing is to go by. Fergie will be the last though I reckon. He says he doesn't want our support to be split fuck me Alex you help cause it with the shit you come out with. Again these notes could cause more arguments amongst reds. :shakehead:

He really is the football Tony Wilson. What he has done for Manchester and United is something that no one shall ever or should ever forget and he will go down (if he isn't already) as the greatest ever manager. However just like Tony Wilson everytime he opens his mouth I dread what will come of it.

It'll be interesting if the ground does have a lot of green and gold, whether he will criticise those fans. He'll probably tell them to go and support Norwich or something.

nobody is bigger than the club that we love so much, which is why we feel so passionately about the issue, and talk of standing together to push for the fucking league is kind of missing the point

tbf honest if SAFO came out and said I hope the Glazers all die a slow painful death and so do all their descendants and eeveryone who walked away can get a free season ticket to come back and the Charlatans are the best band ever.....you'd stiill have a pop
