How Andy Townsend Saw The Penalty Shoot Out

Manchester United have been installed as odds on favourites to win this years FA Cup. This is despite losing the semi final to Everton during a penalty shoot out.

Andy Fakeirishman, a leading soccer pundit for ITV said "I don't care what anyone says. I still think Manchester United will go all the way. I think Sir Alex can still lift his team to further glory. Yes, the result is a setback, but they have had bigger setbacks than this in the past. Never ever write off Manchester United. It's never over."

It was then pointed out to him that it was actually over. And we also hope that ITV's coverage will soon be over also. Jim Realirishman, the match summariser was just as confused. "Well, penalties. One on one. Exciting. But don't bet against it going to a replay."

Sir Alex Ferguson is hoping to have the result overturned. "We should have had a penalty. It's not fair. I wanted a penalty. Why was I not given a penalty? If I don't get a penalty I'm staying in my room. You can all get lost."

Ferguson is believed to be complaining to the FA, the Premier League, the League Manager's Association, FIFA, UEFA, YMCA, FBI, CIA and Watchdog. Ferguson also said "Benitez is to blame. He disrespected my bitch Sam. Nobody does that. Much. Well, often."

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