Why Ferguson’s 5 match ban will NOT harm United

Much has been made of Sir Alex Ferguson’s touchline line ban by the FA after being found guilty of improper conduct. The ban will include United’s FA Cup semi final against Manchester City at Wembley on 16 April as well as the Premier League games against Bolton, West Ham, Fulham and Everton. The manager will however be back in the dugout for the crunch match with title rivals Arsenal in May. While the punishment may sound excessively harsh on Sir Alex for simply expressing his honest feelings in the compulsory post match interview, any damaging effect on the team’s performance will be minimal.
