Manchester United FC, and in particular Alex Ferguson (aka Taggart) have brought shame and embarrassment upon the greatest domestic cup competition in the world. Against Everton, Manchester United allowed their manager Alex Ferguson to field a youth side in the semi final against Everton. This is an outrage, and not the first time Manchester United FC have abused the competition for their own gain. The first time, they did not even enter a team, and I say the competition is better off without clubs who deem themselves to big or important to take the competition seriously. I call for them to be omitted for the season 2009/10 as punishment for not treating this most prestigious competition with the respect it deserves.
