Fergie takes the bait...

hook line and sinker. Nice one Jose.

Fergie lashes out at moaning Jose

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has blasted Jose Mourinho for his recent claims and reckons action should have been taken against him.

In the past week alone, the Chelsea manager has claimed Premier League games are now being played to 'new rules', stating his side were denied a clear penalty at Newcastle on Sunday, while United had not conceded two against Sheffield United and Middlesbrough.

Although Mourinho did not accuse any individuals, or outline who he felt was responsible for the 'rule change', it left Ferguson feeling the Blues manager was questioning the integrity of the English game.

Then, to further fan the flames, Mourinho labelled fellow countryman Cristiano Ronaldo 'a liar' after the Portugal winger launched his own counter-attack, claiming the former Porto chief cannot accept failure.

Now Ferguson has entered the debate, leaving Mourinho in no doubt he does not think much of his present behaviour.

"Jose Mourinho seems to be on some sort of personal crusade about regulations," observed the Scot.

"I am surprised no action has been taken against him. He just seems to go on, and on, and on. Everybody gets bad decisions, you just have to get on with it.

"He is saying our game is suspicious. That is wrong.

"He abused Barcelona in the past, a Swedish referee (Anders Frisk), a German referee (Markus Merk) and the other night he said Liverpool players were going to hunt down Didier Drogba to get him booked. That is very disappointing.

"Jesus, God. It is a rant all the time now. I don't think it is fair to the game.

"The thing is Jose is a very clever man. In some people's eyes he is a hero. I don't know who is a villain and who is a hero.

"The biggest fear for us is that by citing the fact we are not allowed to get penalties at Old Trafford - and we have had three against us this year and there have been none at Stamford Bridge - it puts a terrible pressure on the referees.

"It is a calculated move. We have four games to go now. If we get a penalty kick against us in that time, Mourinho wins that war. That is wrong."

"As for Cristiano Ronaldo, everyone is entitled to have a comment or opinion. That doesn't mean to say they are liars.

"He is on about changing regulations. Who is doing it? The FA? The Premier League? UEFA?"

And Alex NEVER bullied , intimated or influenced officials in his life YEAH ???

F***in rich coming from him .

Exactly, mate. Ferguson has been guilty of all the things he's accusing Mourinho of, for nearly twenty years, the f*ckin' hypocritic! w**k2.gif

And Mourinho was dead right about the penalties. The two recent non-penalties at OT were a disgrace - if the offences had been against United, there'd have been no hesitation, clear penalty. Nothing new there though, it's been going on for many many years at OT, and also at Anfield - away teams have rarely got penalties at either ground. I'd love to see the stats of how few pens have been awarded against Manure & the Scousescum in their home games in the last 30 years, in comparison to other games.

Some people argue that it comes with success - that's b*llocks, we've just won the league title twice, and we're never gonna get preferential treatment in the way United & Liverpool have always had - in fact we get more bad decisions against us than in our favour.

I remember years ago Ferguson giving some ref at OT an absolute slating, and finishing with the words :" He won't be reffing us again".

I don't know if he was punished for that or whether he was just publicly stating the influence ManUre have over who refs their games. Whatever, for him to make these comments now is astonishing hypocrisy.

And this comment:

If we get a penalty kick against us in that time, Mourinho wins that war.

is unbelievable. He's basically accusing any ref who gives a penalty against Manure in the next few games of not being objective and being totally intimidated by JM. He's not prepared to admit that a peanlty against Manure might be down to a bad tackle, but would be purely down to JM complaining about refs' mistakes v Manure.

In fairness he is right (even if his a hypocrite), Mourinho does complain too much and it would be kind of nice sometimes if he'd just shut his mouth and concentrate on things he can control.

I don't call that taking the bait. Fergie had nothing to lose, and it looked like Mourinho was pulling a Kevin Keegan with the pressure getting to him. Its mind games, and theres nobody better at that than Fergie. He was calm throughout the press conference, and just responded to Mourinhos comments...and after todays results you can tell who won out of the two

Crap. Or are you referring to that blatant handball - yet another handball - that wasn't given? And please don't start arguing over whether the Mancs get the rub of the green when it comes to penalty decisions. Of course they bloody do, they always have. It's too obvious for words. Ferguson was calm without - so what's your point? Was Jose ranting and raving? Or did you read or hear another idiot journalist saying that Jose had lost it? Just as that prize Manc Terry Christian rattles on week after week about Chelsea playing the long ball game. Tonight's little jibe was that Bolton proved themselves better or at least as good as Chelsea as playing the long ball game. More propaganda is all that is. And let me explode another little myth about your lot "playing the game the right way". Again and again teams like Bolton roll over, curl up and die against you, whereas against us, time after time they somehow manage to pull out the performance of their season. That's not sour grapes, that's not making excuses - that's FACT. And most of the time we still beat the b*st*rds.

what a nob! jose doing a keegan, yeah right! jose has pulled the same stunts since he arrived, even before that when porto knocked you out the champs league...fergie didn't excatly look cool ranting on friday that jose should be punished for the same thing he has done for years! Utd have won the league fair play, but that doesn't give you the right to talk sh*te (repeat what the ill informed, biased media write)...and don't talk crap about not wanting to win champs league...fergie is desperate...sure you're not getting excuses in early just in case it goes wrong?

How's that so different from what Mourinho is spouting?

It's different in that JM is complaining about decisions that HAVE ALREADY gone Manure's way and against us. Fergie is saying that Refs are so open to being influenced that any penalty they now concede is down to Jose intimidating refs with his comments. There's a massive difference.

But all along Ferguson makes comments to try and influence refs and ultimately outcomes of matches. You mean to say you don't think Mourinho's comments are meant to influence future matches in any way and that he's merely a whinger?
