Alex Fergusson is very worried about Manchester United players who seem a bit sluggish so he asks the teams psychologist what he can do.
"Keep their minds alert by firing off questions at them all the time; that's what we used to do when I was at Arsenal."
"Like what?" asks Fergie
"Well mind puzzles; for example, like 'I am my fathers son but not my brother - who am I?", was the reply.
Fergie went off happy with the idea but couldn't puzzle out the riddle himself and wanted to make sure he knew the answer so he called Arsene Wenger at Arsenal to ask him.
"Can you help me with this riddle", asked Fergie, "I am my father's son but not my brother - who am I?' ",
"Obvious", replied Arsene Wenger, "It's me"
"Thanks", said Fergie and resolved to try this out on the first player he saw, which turned out to be Rio Ferdinan
"Rio, a new mental regime we're starting; you have to answer the following questions - OK"
"OK boss - yeh fire away", said Rio
"I am my father's son but not my brother - who am I?", asked Fergie
Rio thought for a while
"Ah, don't know boss", he said
"Well go home home and think about it and tell me tomorrow." said Fergie
Rio puzzled over the riddle all night and eventually rang his mate Dwight Yorke.
"Boss's has set me a question I can't answer", said Rio, "can you help me?"
"Glad to!", said Yorke.
"I am my fathers son but not my brother - who am I?", asked Rio.
Obvious", said Yorke, "It's me"
Next morning Rio drops into Fergie's office
"Have you figured out the riddle yet", asked Fergie, "I am my father's son but not my brother - who am I?"
"Yes Boss, It's Dwight Yorke", replied Rio!
"Don't be stupid", snapped Fergie, "It's Arsene Wenger!"

The lad strips off his shell suit and takes to the pitch. In those dying minutes he's a revelation, scoring a hat trick. The crowd goes mad.

"No, son, today has been the worst yet. Your dad has been shot, they've raped your sister, and the house has been burnt to the ground."

"God, Mum, that's terrible; I'm really sorry"

"So you should be. It was your idea for all of us to move to Manchester!"
