    Now you see, i thought it was an odd comment for a much simpler reason.

    IT WAS NEW YEARS DAY. Everybody there would be most likely hung over to fuck, and you dont tend to want to sing when every note reverberates round your head like a sledgehammer.

    Personally i’m impressed that 75,459 people managed to get dressed and leave the house.

    I agree with everything said in this post. Ferguson’s solipsistic arrogance is only getting worse.

    I think it is the Glazers much more than the knighthood, 200.

    Faustian bargains never favour the “mortal” in the long run, and the Glazers are used to “coaches” who are very much employees rather than executives and who know how to “stay on message”.

    In and of itself, the knighthood came with infinitely less baggage, though it did accentuate the already quite distressing fawning attitude towards Ferguson of much the UK football media, which I would suggest is a signficant factor in his increasingly tenuous grasp on reality.
