Drunken Man Utd Fan Calls 999 And Demands To Speak To Sir Alex Ferguson After Sunderland Defeat

By Chris Wright

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Portsmouth v Manchester United - Fratton Park

“Aye, ah know lad. Ah jus’ witched that shower a’ shite me self…”

It’s perfectly understandable that last night’s penalty defeat to Sunderland in the League Cup semi-finals might have been hard to take for many a Manchester United fan, but one supporter – who was a few flaggons of ale in by that point, it should be pointed out – felt the situation was so perilous that he made an emergency 999 call and asked to speak directly to the only superhero capable of saving him and his ailing club: Sir Alex Ferguson.

This wonderful advisory note then appeared on the Greater Manchester Police’s Facebook page shortly after, with the Manchester Evening News reposting it on their Facebook page too…


The bit snipped off the bottom reads:

“If you would like to speak to Sir Alex about recent football results we here at GMP Manchester North can only suggest you try ringing Manchester United FC directly as you will probably (not definitely) have a much better chance of getting through to him there rather than ringing the police.”

Let that be a lesson to you all: If you’re going to waste police time, do it spectacularly!

    Hey, police, you spelt ‘your’ wrong.

    I hear you only need 3 GCSEs A-E to join the police these days. This country…

    @Carl: I spotted the exact same thing!

    It’s an incredibly trivial matter (and I know the job of the police is not to enforce correct grammar) but seriously…

    Besides that, fair play to the cops for that. Very funny story and great to see the lads in blue showing a light-hearted side (while still keeping the straight face).

    Oh and Chris, top marks again for the caption! Awesome.

    I’m not a native English speaker (living in the Netherlands), but the difference between your and you’re is all too obvious for me. How an Englishman can screw this up is beyond my understanding…
