“Gracious Ferguson” was the popular verdict on Saturday after Sir Alex conceded that United were “beaten by the better team” at Upton Park. But did anyone detect shades of the famous 1992 tantrum when Fergie famously described the effort the Hammers put into beating United as “obscene”?
“Most teams are motivated against us anyway… ”
“I suppose it was their biggest game of the season.”
Surely it’s not squeaky bum time already?
