Having trouble reading figures?

I’ve heard people say before that every great winner is also an awful loser. Well, in the case of Alex Ferguson, winner of numerous titles with Man Utd, the saying is most definitely true. I do not know which figures he was reading from when, in the aftermath of his side’s brutal drubbing at the hands of Liverpool, he suggested that he and Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez have spent similar amounts in recent years, but they clearly were not very well researched. Given his reputation as a master of both title-races and (more importantly in the eyes of the media) “mind-games”, it might seem outlandish to sugggest it, but I think perhaps the Scot might be feeling the pressure a bit.

Paul Tomkins’ article on his excellent blog sums up the situation perfectly.
