Top headline on Sky Sports News: someone has apparently been flying a spy plane over Manchester Utd’s training facility in Carrington, presumably to pick something up about their tactics and training.
Wow. I know United don’t look like dropping too many points at the moment (cough Henry cough), but isn’t that rather desperate? Besides, shouldn’t any top manager be able to pick up a few things about general style of play, marking, formation etc through his scouts and say, in the first 5-10 mins of a game anyway?!
Hey, brave pilot anyway, to get in and out without alerting the Harrier jumpjets that Man U have on patrol in the area.
Rumours that the plane was blue with white markings and drew the words “FUCK YOU” in the air with its vapour trails remain unfounded…
