Desperate United seeking Fergie Time within Fergie Time
People may have been mistaken for thinking the 2012 Armageddon had actually arrived when Spurs won at Old Trafford last night, but the result was more to do with the home team’s apocalyptic midfield.
That did not stop Sir Alex Ferguson going on one of his legendary deluded rants about not having enough injury time, despite everyone else thinking the customary four minutes of Fergie Time given by the officials was ample.
Ferguson complained, “It’s the inconsistency from referees which makes the players lose faith in them.
“Last week at Anfield, every decision went for us, but tonight not quite everything did.
“How are we supposed to win matches with such unreliable officiating?”
The whining came after United’s star man last weekend – referee Mark Halsey – had tried his utmost to stop Manchester City winning at Fulham, including giving the hosts a penalty for no reason whatsoever.
