A spokesman for the Danish Manchester United Supporters Club (Denmark for all you southerners is up north a bit, turn right, start swimming, near Norway), has taken responsibility for all the fuss surrounding Utd's alleged tapping up of Spurs' Dimitar Berbatov.
Lars Oilrig said that it was a mistake in translation and the way the quotes were used on a Danish Pastry promotion had been taken out of context. He said that a feather had become 35 hens. This is thought to be a breach of Premier League rules on battery farmed footballers.
According to a recent directive, there must be at least 6 free range players in a team.
A spokesman at Old MacDonalds Farmyard in Salfordceistershire said that it has easily a case of the chicken and the egg syndrome. He also ruled denied the rumour that Utd have offered their Gateshead born Van Driver Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher as a Saturday helper at the Poultry Market in Won Derzan Ecks, southern Holland, for Dutch Poultry Supremo Henk Koops.
