chapter 5: My last week at United


''October 29 2005. United are playing an important Premier League game away to Middlesbrough.  I have to miss the game with injury sustained against Liverpool a  month earlier. Its a f**king shambles. United lose 4-1. It's embarassing. Due to contractural obligations it's my turn to do an analysis of the game for the club's tv channel MUTV.  The now infamous interview was tame in truth. There was nothing in that interview  that was out of order. I told it like I saw it. As the presenter Steve Bower showed me the goals on the video I felt ashamed to be associated with those players. The fans who paid our wages had to go into work on Monday morning and endure the taunts, the sneers. I wasn't about to sugarcoat my words. I made comments about various players that were fair and accurate. The full interview is included at the end of this chapter and I stand by it.
The next day I'm called to the managers office. Alex Ferguson had been the most successful manager in recent times but he had lost the drive. I felt after the league title triumph in 2003, he had lost the hunger, was going through the motions.  He made a string of poor buys. Guys like Heinze, Kleberson,  Djemba Djemba and Alan Smith arrived at the club. We were Manchester United. We were supposed to be winning championships and Champions League titles with these players?? United had been the top force in British football for a decade. Now Arsenal and Chelsea had stepped up their games. We had fallen behind. Mourinho's Chelsea were the new top dogs and looked almost unbeatable the previous season. They were signing top talent. Making a real go of it. We were going backwards. Buying rejects from the bargain basement of world football.
 I knock on the managers door. The manager had a go at me. I wasn't about to accept this from him. I told the truth. Told him he was losing the hunger. Said I wanted the interview to be shown to the players. That I stand by it.  He agreed.  That day we sat in the room while the interview was shown to the players. A couple walked out. Views were exchanged. Some of the players sat there and never said a word. 'Cowards' I thought. It was clear that most of the players resented my comments and at the end Carlos Quiroz tried to step in and be the big man. 'Why was he butting in now?' I thought.
I told him exactly what I thought of him. Van der Sar told me I was out of order. I told him to 'go f**k himself' and left the room.  The manager summoned me to his office the following morning. I called Michael Kennedy. Michael's been a good friend and knows how to deal with things like this. He managed to make David Connolly the highest paid footballer in Holland. He could sell ice to the eskimos.  9am we entered the managers office. Ferguson sat opposite me looking sheepish.
''We are going to have to let you go Roy''
''The interview crossed the line and you have lost the trust of your teammates''
I said nothing. Sat there silently listening to the spin this clown was spouting.
''I thank you for your 11 yrs service to the club and we wish you well in the future.''
''You're a liar Alex. It was 12 yrs service.'' I said
'Why was he deliberately getting his timeline wrong??' I thought
We shook hands and I left the ground. Michael Kennedy stayed behind to work out a severance package.  I sat in my car and cried for maybe 2 mins then thought ''f**k him. He betrayed me. He sold me out.'' Ferguson the man was ruthless. A non human. He had fallen out with Incey, Ruud and Becks. Uses you then throws you away when you are of no use to him. 'He'll get what's coming to him' I thought.
I arrived home. Triggs greeted me at the gate. Thank God for her. She knows the way it is. She stood by me through Saipan, and she will stand by me now. She will never betray me. I told Theresa what happened. She was great. I put on my wellies and paddy hat. ''Lets go Triggs. We're going for a walk.''



On Rio Ferdinand: “Just because you are paid £120,000 a week and play well for 20 minutes against Tottenham you think you are a superstar.”

On Edwin van der Sar, who let in the first goal against Boro from 30 yards: “He should have saved that.”

On John O’Shea: “He’s just strolling around but he should be bursting a gut to get back.”

On Darren Fletcher: “I can’t understand why people in Scotland rave about Darren Fletcher.”

On Kieran Richardson: “He is a lazy defender who deserved to get punished.”

On Alan Smith: “He is wandering around as if he is lost. He doesn’t know what he is doing.”

On Carlos Quiroz:  ''You're the worst coach I've ever worked with.''

On Ruud Van Nistelrooy: ''He should be more concerned with scoring goals than playing with his hair.''

“There is talk of putting this right in January and bringing players in. We should be doing the opposite – we should be getting rid of people in January,''

Now willing to engage with idiots for a short period of time.
