Make no mistake about it, Sir Alex Ferguson is a great manager. But at times I would really appreciate it if he could be a little more graceful in defeat. We were well and truly beaten by Liverpool but Ferguson chose to blame Sky for unfair scheduling and refused to talk to reporters from Sky Sports.
Kevin Eason of The Times puts it like this: “Sir Alex Ferguson’s answer to trouble appears similar to the average 13-year-old girl who has been given a rollicking by her parents. He runs to his room, slams the door behind him and refuses to speak a word.”
