Ferguson's Book
Anyone read Alex Ferguson's book yet?

The former Man United manager has managed to rock the apple cart with a few excerpts... A few digs at some of his best players - namely Keane and Beckham. A good few not unexpected digs at Liverpool - the silliest being that Steven Gerrard wasn't a top player...

I was just listening to the radio on my way to work yesterday and the dudes were discussing this book. I am definitely getting it.

RE: Ferguson's Book
Well, he tried to sign Gerrard, so that's an odd one.

He's right about Keane and Beckham - but was he right to go public with it? One of the flaming ironies of this book is that we have Keane, who walked out on his country and then turned on everybody at Man Utd, having the upper hand in discussing loyalty, because he has a point: what happens in the dressing room should stay there.

However, in Fergie's defence, all these incidents were previously made public knowledge, so he has the right to wade in with his version. He still doesn't know who hit him with the pizza, by the way.

It might be a good read, but I'll wait to get it from the library. Along with Eamon Dunphy's and Morrissey's, which I'm expecting to be his typical bedsit groan, even though the chap is in his fifties...

Approved

Typical "say something controversial to sell your book" even if it is means coming off as disloyal or state something downright irrational and/or stupid.
