Fergie wants to scrap post-match press conferences - the case against!

Fergie has revealed that he wants to put an end to post-match press conferences.

The United manager said:
"I don't think I would fall into the trap of criticising individual players myself but it is not easy.

"Sometimes managers react after a game and leave themselves open. It is not easy. I have said this time and time again, after-match press conferences should be abandoned.

"It is a waste of time and does the manager no good whatsoever. All you end up with are sensational headlines. They should be stopped."

Ferguson has a point of course and much of what he says is very true, but what about the paying public, aren't they entitled to hear what the manager has to say following good or bad performances? Let us not lose sight of the fact of who pays the players and managers wages. The fans.

Further to this, if they did scrap the post-match conference then the fans would be denied comedy classics like Kevin Keeagan's 'love it' outburst in 1996 following Newcastle's win over Leeds United.
