Fergie set to play reserve team against Hull
A couple of points to scare Newcastle fans ahead of this weekend’s crunch relegation battle:
1) Sir Alex Ferguson is mates with Phil Brown, Hull’s boss. Hull play Man Utd in their final game.
2) With the Champions League Final on 27 May, and the league title in the bag, Fergie will play a weakened team at the KC Stadium.
3) Alan Shearer once turned down a move to Man Utd, which annoyed the hell out of Fergie. Hmm, about that…
Hmm, do you think Fergie really wants to do Newcastle any favours? No, of course not. Man Utd’s boss would love it, just love it, if the deluded Geordies went down.
Ferguson is considering leaving out Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney in favour of Federico Macheda and Danny Welbeck. And why not!? In Fergie’s shoes, any other manager – Shearer included – would do the same.
Shearer can at least take comfort
