I will admit that, as keen a football fan as I may be, I would not ordinarily seek out the YouTube highlights of Manchester United v. Middlesboro in the Carling Cup. But when I read Sir Alex’s strident condemnation of the foul inflicted on his young Brazilian player, I, well, you know. Had to see it. Not proud, etc. And it is, indeed, a pretty fuckin’ atrocious play: not suitable for children or other impressionable minds, which makes it highly ironic that it happened at Old Trafford.
