Blog: Berba chips in

young lad’s just been telling me to be patient with Berbatov, that Fergie is usually right. Look at that!”

I simply smiled. When Berbatov’s second (and United’s third) hit the back of the net I caught his eye amid the celebrations and gave him a knowing nod.

Come the final whistle, Lard Man called me over to the bar and mumbled what I can only assume was something of an apology.

“I should know better by now,” he said. “It’s true: Fergie always knows what he’s doing.

“Anyway, this one’s on me,” he said, handing me a pint of lager. “Drink up.”

You see, it pays to keep the faith.
