2011 Champions League Final: Don't Ask Sir Alex Ferguson A Silly Question Today

If you're a journalist, asking stupid questions of Sir Alex Ferguson is a risky proposition at the best of times. When he's in a bad mood, things get much, much worse. And moods don't get much worse than seeing your team lose 3-1 in the Champions League final. I'm slightly confused as to why whoever asked the Manchester United manager which Barcelona player he'd most like to sign with infinite funds at his disposal, but he certainly deserved the response he got:

That's one of the most stupid questions I've ever heard in my life... [Javier] Mascherano. You try my patience sometimes.

Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer. After being destroyed by Lionel Messi, who else could it possibly be? Sir Alex isn't going to put up with this sort of nonsense from journalists, and we shouldn't have to either.
