Wigan boss urged by Chelsea to “really, really try” against United
Seems that Sir Alex Ferguson has no shortage of go-to guys in a crisis. Alan Curbishley (lurking on the right of this photo) ordered his West Ham team to roll over and let United scratch their tummies – “Lads, me and Alex are in this wine club, so don’t do anything to piss him off, right…” – and now Fergie can turn to former captain Steve Bruce.
I believe Brucey is an honest, decent man with principles and… ah, who am I trying to kid. If Bruce’s Wigan put up enough of a fight at the JJB next weekend, and somehow get a point out of the game, Fergie will never speak to him again.
