For a few dollars more

Players angered by final cutbacks
Malcolm Glazer's commitment to making financial cutbacks at Manchester United has extended to the club's squad, after it emerged last night that some of Sir Alex Ferguson's fringe players had to pay £72 each for tickets to watch the Carling Cup final. Several directors, scouts, coaches and senior staff also had to dip into their own pockets after a Glazer-inspired decision which has provoked condemnation throughout Old Trafford, particularly in the dressing room.

The players were distinctly unimpressed when they subsequently discovered United had allocated as many as 70 complimentary tickets to sponsors and other guests.

For a few quid, maybe Ruud could have played.
