In a press conference today in Doha, Old Red Nose issued forth a typically blunt comment about his poor relationship with the media. Fergie accused hacks of lacking not only quality but also “strong values”, which I take to mean “principles” or “a basic morality”.
Yep, based on my experiences in newspaper journalism, that sounds spot-on.
In slight defence of the scribes who hound him, Man Utd’s manager did concede that football writers are under great pressure to find stories (i.e. make shit up) from their editors.
In other news about the Govan pensioner being charming as hell, United are set to be hit by a £65,000 fine (it will probably end up being less) this week due to Ferguson’s continued refusal to speak to the BBC.
