Breaking news at Sky headquarters where Sir Alex Ferguson had to be restrained from trying to attack Top News Reporter Geoff Shreeves during a press conference. The two have a bit of a history and it's always just a matter of time before something happens.
Things had started brightly and Sir Alex even gave praise to another team! To make it more astonishing the team in question was Liverpool, he said he was pleased to see Kenny Dalglish back in the game and at the team he holds dear to his heart.
He then went on to discuss the team selection for the big game at the weekend and it was here things took a turn for the worse. Sir Alex said 'Wyan will pway, Wio, Wooney up fwont, Cawwick, Fwetcher, ' and suddenly Geoff Shreeves shouted out 'You sound like Elmer Fudd. '
Sir Alex looked physically shaken and glared straight at Shreeves, who isn't scared of Alex. 'What did you say Son?' boomed Fergie.
'Just say Wabbit for me, ' teased Shreeves.
The packed gallery was silent and Sir Alex, by now even more beetroot red than usual, screamed at the security to 'get that man out of here. Wet me at him, I'll wip his head off. '
Shreeves was frogmarched out of the room grinning like a Cheshire cat. It was an astonishing series of events and totally took the edge off those other two clowns Keys and Gray. But that's another story.
