  1. At a recent Manchester United-Liverpool derby, Alex Ferguson goes into the Man Utd changing room to find all his players looking a bit glum. “What’s up?” he asks.

    “Well, we’re having trouble getting motivated for this game. We know it’s important but it’s only Liverpool and we can’t be bothered, we always beat them”.

    Ferguson looks at them and says, “Well, I reckon I can beat these by myself, you lads go down the pub.”

    So Ferguson goes out to play for the Red Devils all by himself and the rest of the Man Utd team go off for a few beers. After a few pints they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the television on. A big cheer goes up as the screen reads “Man Utd 1 – Liverpool 0 (Ferguson 10 minutes).” He is beating Liverpool all by himself!

    Anyway, a few more pints later and the game is forgotten until someone remembers “It must be full time now, let’s see how he got on.” They put the teletext on. “Result from Old Trafford: Man Utd 1 (Ferguson 10 minutes) – Liverpool 1 (Downing 89 minutes).”

    They can’t believe it; he has single-handedly gotten a draw!! They rush back to Old Trafford to congratulate him. They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, sitting with his head in his hands. He refuses to look at them. He says, “I’ve let you down, I’ve let you down.”

    “Don’t be daft, you got a draw, all by yourself. And they only scored at the very very end!” the players say.

    To which Ferguson replies: “No, No, I have. I’ve let you down… I got sent off after 12 minutes”
