After a poor performance at Sunderland, allied with the fact that a sewage pipe burst above the Manchester United dressing room, I`d bet there really was a case of the brown stuff hitting the fan in the aftermath of the match.

But, the Stadium of Light isn`t an easy place to visit and leading teams will struggle to take three points there.

After the game, Sir Alex, in his customary post match interview, spoke about the day, starting with the poo falling through the ceiling,

“It affected our build-up a little bit but not too much.”

“It was an accident and Sunderland`s staff were fantastic.”

“The first three draws were a concern – but I can`t class this as a disappointment because we had to battle to get the point. We have thrown the other three away.”

“You`ve go to give credit to Sunderland – their home record this season is fantastic.”

“We had to defend really well, that`s the most pleasing thing for me.”

“But we had no attacking purpose in the first 25 minutes of the match.”


Some might suggest Sir Alex, for once, didn`t quite get the starting eleven right!
