Tommy, far right, and other disgruntled fans

Fans of Manchester United are this morning waking up to the amazing news that the job of manager Sir Alex Ferguson is under threat after angry supporters launched a "Get Fergie Out" campaign in the wake of Saturday's gargantuan struggle against non-League Crawley Town, from which the Reds emerged eventual 1-0 winners.

Hundreds of fans stayed behind to voice their disapproval of Sir Alex's team selection, and the performances of some of the more senior United players, such as Wayne Rooney, who was booked for a petulant, cynical, crude and reckless hack at Kyle McFadzean as he raced clear of the striker.

Many stayed late into the night, chanting for the Scot to be axed. One, Tommy, aged 6, told us:

"Sir Alex has had his chance. What has he won this year? Nowt! And now this embarrassing display against these minnows. It's too much - he has to go!"

Others agreed. John Heckmondwikeroyd, 145, said:

"I've been watching Man Utd since their formation, and I've never seen such an inept display. Shocking, just shocking. Ferguson has taken United a long way, but maybe it's time he stepped down, and allowed a younger man to take the reins. Like Tommy."

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