Sir Alex Ferguson is less than impressed with the date the FA have chosen to play the FA Cup semi-final.
“Just think about this one issue, which is important: there’ll be 60,000 people coming down from Manchester – you think about how much petrol is used for that,” said Ferguson. “This is one issue alone. Think of the amount of people from the north-west driving away down there. Stoke fans, Bolton fans, City fans, United fans – and on the same weekend Liverpool fans are travelling down [to play Arsenal]. And you’ve also got people coming down to see the London Marathon. It’s going to be absolute chaos.”
