The FA and several opposing club supporters trusts have criticised Manchester United Football Club for releasing news of their loss to rivals Manchester City on the day of ex Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's passing.
"Monday was a very cynical day to announce the news of the 2-1 defeat" stated incoming FA chairman Greg Dyke, continuing that "Rather than wait a few weeks until the nation's attentions turned away from the sad news, Man U thought they could use this as a distraction to bury their own bad news". Dyke then went on to deliver a strange analogy involving stage magicians and handkerchiefs which was difficult to quite follow.
MUTV, the official and sinister, tightly controlled media outlet for the league leaders hit back claiming that Greg Dyke had also been busy burying bad news the same day "We have proof that so called Mr Dyke forgot to buy biscuits and milk for the FA Soho based office that Monday afternoon. He then suspiciously revealed that to his PA the very same afternoon that Thatcher died. Co-incidence or shocking example of his notorious hypocritical nature?"
Sir Alex Ferguson was, apparently, available for comment.
