Last Saturday’s paper reported how Manchester United were ‘investigating’ an FA ruling that potentially allows teams drawn against each other in the FA Cup to play extra time after their first game and not just the replay. Regrettably, our headline ‘Cup Killers’ gave a false impression that United, and their manager Sir Alex Ferguson, were deliberately trying to destroy the fabric of the competition. We totally accept this is not the case and apologise for any embarrassment our headline may have caused.

I should think so too!
