At the end of BBC TV's "Match of the Day" on Saturday a smirking Gary Lineker invited us to enjoy a shot of Sir Alex Ferguson dropping his chewing gum on the floor of the tunnel at Stamford Bridge - then picking it up and popping it back in his mouth. If Sir Alex had not boycotted BBC inteviews for the last few years, would the Beeb still have shown that shot?

Just a thought.

It may seem a little childish, yes.

Personally I believe that the BBC should ask Ferguson every week if he wishes to be interviewed. If he doesn't they should then say "Sir Alex Ferguson declined to comment after the game."

No-one cares what his sidekick thinks anyway and that kind of tactic might embarrass Ferguson to end his childish boycott.
