Manchester United Message Board
I see that fergie has attempted a vailed apologie for saying that Newcastle Utd are aWee Club. Maybe if he stopped and thought before he opens his gob people would respect him more. Newcastle Utd are a big club and always have been, and thier fans are GENUIENE, people.This topic is deleted.
" How the TAN"
You are an odd boy. Tan is fine, fading again now I'm back in the UK.
"were have I said that I wish fergie dead.? I mean GONE"
Oh, so when you said,
"the sooner hes gone the better.And when I say GONE I mean "GONE" ," you didn't mean,
"And when I say GONE I mean "GONE"," you meant,
"And when I say GONE I mean gone"?
That clears that up.
Huh, I guess my experience of Newcastle fans just gives me a higher opinion of them than you seem to have. They all came across as good people. As for "gobbing off", I'm not sure where you think I've been doing that.
"Slurguson berated and insulted Newcastle United, the club's supporters and the north east region"
Really? Where was that? He called the club "wee" (which could be found insulting, but, unfortunately, not untrue), but what did he say about the supporters or the region? Also, I'd say he "berated" Pardew, but not the club itself.
Actually, he didn't apologise for calling them a "wee club", he apologised for making the fans of the club feel insulted.
However, Ferguson has gone a long way to build bridges with the supporters by stating that NUFC fans are among the best in the world:
"It was never my intention to belittle NUFC fans. I want to clear up any misunderstanding that may have arisen over what I said.
Sadly, results have not matched their loyalty.
If NUFC achievements had matched the support of the people who pay to watch them play, the club would be among the game's giants.
It's tragic that they haven't been able to win a league title for over eighty years."
I agree with him - Newcastle have passionate and loyal fans, and the club has let them down, not just with a lack of silverware, but with the merry-go-round of managers and the dumping of their stadium's name for a sponsor's.
I take it sandblaster is another geordie tosser who thinks they're something special!!
They're a wee club, always will be .... 1927 .... wow, I'm impressed, I didn't realise they were that big!
