Man United fans praise ‘perfect’ Lady Cathy Ferguson tribute after Fergie time drama from Scotsman Scott McTominay

Manchester United fans think their team’s last gasp win over Brentford ‘was written in the stars’.

The club and the rest of the footballing world were saddened by the news that Man United‘s legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s wife, Lady Cathy Ferguson, passed away on Friday at the age of 84.

Tributes poured in from around the world for the Scotsman’s wife, including from the club.

Now, fans think the players and Erik ten Hag paid homage to Lady Cathy in the ‘perfect’ way in their game against Brentford.

Man United looked as though they were going to lose at home for the third time in a row on Saturday afternoon, with them trailing 1-0 against the Bees as the game went into added time.

But Ten Hag’s substitutions inspired an incredible comeback out of nowhere, with Scott McTominay netting twice in the space of four minutes to snatch all three points and complete the comeback.

As fans celebrated the last minute euphoria, some couldn’t help but think about how fitting the manner of their winning goals were scored in in relation to Ferguson.

First, both goals were scored in Fergie time, the phrase coined by fans when the former manager’s Man United teams would always score right at the last possible moment.

Second, the goalscorer, McTominay is a Scotsman, just like Ferguson.

“Fergie time winner, it was written in the stars,” one fan wrote.

A second said: “Out of all of the weekends for a Fergie time winner, this is the perfect one.”

“Football writes its own very strange script doesn’t it?” a third wrote. “In Fergie time, the weekend of his wife’s passing, a Scottish lad comes off the bench to win the game for United A player written off by many.”

Man United move up to 10th in the table after their win against Brentford.

Meanwhile, the Bees, who have now dropped 12 points after being in winning positions so far this season, sit in 14th.
