Sir Alex Ferguson's weekly presser could be a dangerous place but as Steve Bates discovered, beneath the former Manchester United's scary persona was a mischievous streak. Who do United need to to mount a title challenge?

Get our daily Manchester United newsletter. And as a journalist walking into Sir Alex Ferguson's Friday morning press conference it was absolutely no different. The chatting and joking amongst the press men and women gathered on the first floor mezzanine would immediately cease and the tension would go up a notch as journo's took their seats. Because make no mistake, this was a test of mentality and when it went pear-shaped, as it sometimes did, character. But only if you've witnessed at close quarters the famous Fergie Hairdryer being plugged in and dialled-up to full power can you appreciate being on the end of his wrath.

Going into a Fergie presser without being properly prepared was like going into a military fire-fight without a gun. Total folly. Asking the wrong question — or even the right one — could lead to a brutal put-down in front of colleagues and cameras. Fergie's lips would Alex ferguson hairdryer, he'd stiffen up, his eyes would burn into to you — and he'd let rip. Standing your ground might have seemed like madness to onlookers but, deep down, Ferguson had more respect for journalists who didn't fold. Fergie's bark always carried venom, but it was much worse in the early days as he tried to instil his own mentality in the club.

Instead of a tirade there was tea and an apology - or near enough - for the way our disagreement ended. In private company, Fergie was engaging and fascinating as I hope the forthcoming film Never Give In, produced by his son Jason about his life ,will portray. In my capacity as a Chairman of the Football Writers' Association I sat with him at private dinners on many occasions and he was entertaining company. On one night, moments before getting to my feet to deliver a speech to a few hundred guests, I discovered my notes had disappeared.

Despite a frantic search, panic-stricken, I stood up and made my opening remarks before a chuckling Fergie picked my notes from his jacket and slid them in front of me. They were roller-coaster years that were gold-dust for those lucky enough to be on the guest list. Even though they could be dangerous, I still miss those Friday mornings - and the Fergie Hairdryer!
