A red rag

Manchester United fans' love affair with £80million summer buy, Harry Maguire, may be 'on the rocks' this morning, after a Twitter tweet the star made yesterday annoyed a section of supporters with its content.

This came after disgruntled United fans began complaining about the team's poor showing in Holland against AZ Alkmaar, during their Europa League match. The game ended 0-0, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men unable to register a single shot on target.

Others had a general moan and groan about United's poor start to the season, and about life in general.

Maguire responded with:

"A point away from home. Thanks for the support. See you Sunday."

This was like holding up a red rag to a horde of bulls.

Twitter exploded.

"A point is the most you can get, if you don't score a goal, you dolt," wrote one user.

Another tweet came soaked in sarcasm. It said:

"Thanks for thanking us for the support. Don't worry, it wasn't expensive to get there and get in - I earn £150 a week, like you."

Others were more direct:

"A point away from home? Stating the bleeding obvious there, you muppet."

And:

"Fuck off, Yorkie."

And:

"Football is supposed to be entertaining. If you can't entertain, go and carry bricks."

After more than three thousand similarly-written negative responses, Maguire decided enough was enough, and deleted his own tweet.

Then he had a cup of cocoa for his supper, and went to bed.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
