The information was lifted from the Mail on Sunday, and was written by a member of Ferguson's inner press circle, Bob Cass. They fell out over an article by Cass regarding Wesley Schneider, which culminated in a foulmouthed four-letter tirade at the airport by Ferguson that was videoed and posted on the Internet. In a recent interview with Keys and Gray on Talksport, Cass divulged many of the funny stories and anecdotes that involved Ferguson over the years, and, that the Schneider story was a misunderstanding. He also praised Ferguson’s humanity, to both himself and others when confronted with life’s downsides. Ferguson was always first on the phone to offer support. He also stated that Ferguson never held grudges, and that they remained best of friends. Not sure about the grudges. Such was the interest generated by these stories, the interview ran over the allotted time. It’s also worth remembering that Ferguson used both Cass and the late Joe Melling to leak information when it suited him. Regarding the £72 million, that figure is similar to what the Glazers paid last year in bond buy back and interest payments. As United fans, where would you prefer the money to be spent? Can I also tell the older fans of United to read the excellent book by Keith Dewhurst “ When you wear the red shirt”. Dewhurst is a former writer for the Manchester Evening Chronicle and latterly this newspaper. It’s a brilliant informative chronicle of life in Manchester, and United in particular, during the fifties and early sixties. A brilliant read. He was also a contributor to the United Review, the clubs official programme, during the sixties.
