Bitter Taggart Hughes Plea From Theatre Of Screams
Hopelessly outpassed and certainly outsung again, the rags ended a wretched season at the Stretford Library with their tails between their legs. Cue bitter Ferguson...
The graceless knight of the realm chose the moment of the aftermath to his side's latest stuttering damp squib of a performance, this time against Swansea to have a dig at the increasingly successful Manchester City hierarchy:
'We've won the title on three occasions on the last day and we don't mind doing it again. They're red hot favourites and will make sure they win the match, but QPR need a point and they're fighting for survival. The whole future of the club could be resting on the game and I only wish Sparky was playing...Mark knows his job alright. He was sacked by City in a very unethical way and he'll remember that. Mark Hughes teams always fight but QPR players are fighting for survival...It's always our job, the expectation and responsibility of Manchester United players is to win the match. We'll go there optimistic. It won't be easy but we'll have a go.'
As thousands of them they wind their ways back to the Home Counties, The Stretfords are unhappy, increasingly ill at ease and fearful of the future. Taggart sounds increasingly desperate, deluded and bitter, completely out of touch with the stark reality that has engulfed his sinking club.
