“I don’t think we played badly at all today – if we carry on playing like that I’ll be happy – but we slaughtered Newcastle and not to get the three points was a travesty.”
~ Sir Alex Ferguson 11/26/2011
Sir Alex complaining about a bad decision by the linesman to incorrectly reward Newcastle with a penalty. Just to set the record straight, a travesty is a mockery or false representation of something. Other travesties near and dear to Manchester United might be Rio Ferdinand’s defending and the current United midfield.
