Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (feat. Joel - THE RIGHT ONE)
Edit: Didn't see Joel's much more succint and better response, but cba deleting what I wrote.
Guy's a cunt but some United lad on twitter last year had a tattoo or something saying '96 WNE', an abbreviated form of 96 was not enough. He got harassed and had threats made against him (I've never met the lad but he's mates with people I loosely know who follow United) and was a right cunt for doing that.
Don't know why people get so surprised when stories come out about people of that level. There are total idiots and bellends in every support and the progression of social media unfortunately means more and more of these pricks are getting exposure when back in the day their sad and pathetic antics would barely be heard of.
Ferguson is a tit, no getting around that. I'll always have respect for the man and what he brought to United and the way you can tell the club has basically become a part of him, but ever since the Glazer takeover and his comments regarding FC United and the Glazer ownership in general he's lost that allure of being unquestionable. That's without delving into his press conferences and daft comments. I take the best Fergie quotes as a good bit of banter and have a laugh with them, but the laughable quotes he puts out for all to hear really are embarassing a lot of the time.
Adkins getting the boot is terrible given the run they're on compared to the start of the season. Not sure why an owner can't see the benefit of time and accepting a plan to move the club into a higher position will take considerable time, investment and hardwork instead of being an overnight success. I agree with whoever said it might be to do with them wanting to lock down their preferred candidate to take over, but its still pathetic that a man who's taken them that far was given half a season in the big time with them in a steady position and showing encouraging signs compared to their first few games in the division.
