altough recently Fergie said he regretted selling Stam and that this was his biggest mistake.
Fergie up till recently couldn't handle opposition of any sort. Neither was he good at keeping egos at bay.

To me that's more proof that he couldn't handle the modern footballer with all the baggage that it brings.

Yes they did make up and as a Trini I would like to publicly apologise for Yorke's stupidity But you must agree that he was treated harshly. And all bias aside he DID try to redeem himself later on just prior to his sale and played better than RVN (remember the 6-0 mauling of Arsenal?) He should have at least been given another chance. But all credit to him and Fergie for burying the hatchet later

Bullshit. Giggs form improved end of


Anyway THAT is why I will always give Carlo my undying respect. Do you think that there are NO egos at Milan? Do you think there aren't the odd disruptive influence or two? Of course there are. But Carlo is the man that always keeps it together. Sheva was always a handfull and he and Seedorf never saw eye to eye. Seedorf is a huge ego on his own. Kaka has often publicly criticised Carlo as have Gattuso, Billy, Sheva and even his own darling clarence. But Carlo keeps the group so tightly knit and this in itself is part of the secret to our success and a huge reason why we are regarded as one of the classiest teams
