The remarks that Sir Alex Ferguson made in the wake of our 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge continue to trouble the media.

So much in fact that they`ve convinced themselves that the FA will be asking those who run MUTV to hand over tapes of an interview carried out whereby Sir Alex lambasted Martin Atkinson.

Apparently the FA have until 16:00 hours, on Friday, to decide whether Sir Alex crossed the line when he simply pointed out the inadequacies Atkinson showed, on the night. With a two match suspended ban hanging over Sir Alex, any action taken by the FA could see the fiery Scot handed a huge fine or even a four game ban.

Meanwhile, as this contentious issue rolls on, Alex Leighton (national secretary of referees) has also had his say and if you`re in the Ferguson camp on this one, like we are, it doesn`t make for pretty reading when he comments,

“Alex Ferguson should come out and clarify exactly what he meant with his comments.”

“I dread to think any manager seriously believes in the cold light of day that any referee is unfair or biased.”

“That is an attack on the very fabric of the game.”

“He should explain what he means or else it would be very helpful if he were to apologise for any implication that Martin Atkinson is unfair or biased.”


Somehow I don`t think that`ll happen as this battle of wills continues to grip the tabloid`s imagination!
