Alex Ferguson thinks everybody is unfair

Legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson has received a 5 match touch line ban from the FA for criticising referee Martin Atkinson

"I think the last few games we've had terrible decisions against us and you've just got to be careful you don't have paranoia about it," said Ferguson, who opted not to contest the FA's ruling." (ESPN)
Ferguson has a disadvantage in this respect because he is obviously the only person in the world to never have seen a Manchester United game, let alone the gross injustice of decisions that go their way on a regular basis.  If he was still the manager of Aberdeen he may very well have have taken his own life by now, but as it happens he spends much of his day intimidating referees by slagging them off where possible, then refusing to speak to the BBC about it.

The 69-year-old was furious that defender David Luiz was not sent off for fouls on Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney after the Brazilian defender had already been booked. He was also angry about the decision to award Chelsea a penalty when Yuri Zhirkov fell under Chris Smalling's challenge.
How dare he award a penalty against Manchester United.  How dare he!  Chaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarge!
