Tommy Docherty, "A total shambles. There's no other word for it. Fergie thought he could play any team he liked and win that tie. Well he was proved wrong and it seems he hadn't learned his lesson from Exeter last season.
"I know he picked a few youngsters, but if they're at United they should be good enough players to be able to beat a team like Burton. But this lot clearly aren't up to it.
"I think Fergie should jack it in now. He's had great success but I think he's stayed on too long at United. The Burton game was a case in point.
"People want to remember him for what he did at United, not for what he is in grave danger of undoing. I think his decision- making right now leaves a lot to be desired."
