  1. At least you know where Rafa’s hand as been. Tinkering with the team sheet 24/7. Still trying to figure out how to make that worthless blonde, brunette, blonde now red head forward look less pathetic week after week.

  2. Rafa is trying to get inside Fergie’s head. They have two more games against one another so this soap opera is only starting. Gotta love it.

  3. Seems much ado about nothing. I would say that it’s much less ordinary for managers to shake hands before matches and Rafa set himself up perfectly to be able to complain about this. Especially since he left the technical area at the end of the match to go onto the field (the time most often used to shake the opposing manager’s hand). This way he could come out and say that SAF was the one to snub him.

    Of course, the media eats this up like Charley ate chocolate bars. Give them any excuse to put out a scandalous headline, and they will.

  4. “He is a disgrace to Manchester United Football Club. That manger should not be allowed to manage Man Utd again. The history that club has got … and he does that. It could have caused a riot. I was really disappointed in that guy. It was a terrible start to the game, a terrible atmosphere it created.”

    Do those words sound familiar Alex?
