Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens
hey if you've managed in england this long, and been this successful its no surprise you are going to have a few friends. Of course other managers would rather been on the good side of the best manager of all time.
Dembele and Parker? still a very good CM plus you have bale.
Arseache i agree fergie has alot of friends within football but alot the media hate him/united but journos a cunts anyway.
There are some like that Oliver Holt who openly go against him in order to look all free and independent but they're a gang of bellends at the end of the day too. I remember a few years ago when Mourinho was here and Chelsea dominated the league for two seasons the press seemed to turn against Ferguson a bit. Not loads, just a bit more than usual, questioning his age etc. Soon changed their tune once Mourinho fucked off. They just suck the cock of whoever is successful. I hate 99.9% of sports journalists (glorified gossip columnists most of them). Tim Vickery and one or two others are the only exceptions.
Hated in Africa for cheating Ghana of a spot in the semi finals of the World Cup.
You'd be surprised how quickly his reputation has spreaded around the globe from his antics here alone.
He's hated in the UK. I'll give you that.
I have no idea what his reputation is in Africa. I'm sure he isn't held in the highest of regards but hated? I haven't seen anything that would suggest that. His charity work over there might give him some green rep.
Around the world there is (or was at the time) a lot of sympathy for him because of the blatant fit up the whole Evra case was. Loads of articles from around the world at the time of the realase of the 'report' point to that. He's seen as a victim of the FA trying to show up Blatter. Which is true.
But we'll be here all day on this and get nowhere again.
