With calls from a small minority of United fans for Sir Alex Ferguson to resign, it is becoming apparent that maybe the guilt of sitting back and saying nothing about our ridiculous debt situation under the Glazers has got to our manager.

After already showing sympathy to our green and gold movement, Sir Alex Ferguson has given an interview with The Observer where he claims he is not against our protests, but that his priority has to be the well being of the team.

“I’m never against protest,” says Ferguson. “It’s everyone’s right, there’s no doubt about that. So the stance at the moment with the fans is: I completely understand it. When they were waving these green and gold flags, and scarves, it caught your attention. But it still doesn’t change the fact that I have to be manager of my club, and manager of my team, and I’ve got too many priorities. I cannot let it interfere with my direct route to winning the title or the European Cup. That’s the only thing that concerns me.”

The full interview is in tomorrow’s Observer.
