What Did Fergie Say To The Soldier?

It’s been something of a strained week for Sir Alex Ferguson. The Manchester United manager has had to deal with one of his worst days as the Red Devils gaffer, the 6-1 thrashing in the Manchester derby, and he won’t have enjoyed the last few days as a result.

There’s no doubt that the famous Fergie hairdryer would have been in action last Sunday at Old Trafford, but Sir Alex would have been encouraged by their performance against Aldershot, albeit a lower league team, in the Carling Cup as they won 3-0.

Here is Sir Alex Ferguson before the match at the Recreation Ground having his photo taken. Can you come up with a funny caption for this picture?

        Win a copy of This is the One!

Written over the course of two eventful, diverse and controversial seasons, This Is the One offers a unique portrait of Sir Alex Ferguson from a privileged position behind the scenes.

Told from the perspective of The Guardian’s dedicated Manchester football correspondent, Daniel Taylor, who has been there from day one, the book examines every side of Ferguson, mixing the flint-faced authoritarian caricature, the infamous hairdryer treatment and the softer, humane side of an immensely likeable man.

Entertaining, revelatory, sometimes shocking but always affectionate, this is an honest biography of a manager who infuriates as much as he inspires, but whose heart is as big as the Man Utd trophy room.
