Alex Ferguson And The Manchester United Fans – An Inspiration To Us All

9 years ago

If you ever wanted a tale of how supporters can follow the lead of their club’s manager, what about this one from last night.

Nottinghamshire police have confirmed that an eighteen year old rang them during last night’s Manchester United v Real Madrid match to complain about the referee!

While Ferguson bottled out of even facing the press after the match, one of their top fans rang 999 from his armchair in a village near Bingham in Nottinghamshire (you couldn’t make it up!).

The police have used this example to highlight the stupid calls they regularly receive that wastes their valuable time.

Chief Inspector Ted Antill said;

“While this recent example may be amusing…there may be people out there in real trouble who need our help and they have to wait because we’re tied up with calls like this one, reporting a referee from the television.

In this case the man realised his bad judgement and apologised, so we decided not to pursue it further”.

There are unconfirmed reports that the hardcore Man.U. fan had previously wanted his mam charged for walking in front of the TV and not cutting his eggie soldiers in the right shape.
