Ferguson predicts 'absolute chaos'

Sir Alex Ferguson is predicting ''absolute chaos'' on FA Cup semi-final weekend as, with both matches at Wembley and all four teams heading down from the north west, travel routes are going to be congested.

Ferguson has never viewed Wembley as an ideal venue for the FA Cup semi-finals anyway. But this season, on a weekend that also includes Arsenal's high-profile Premier League encounter with Liverpool, plus the London Marathon, he feels it makes even less sense.

''There will be 60,000 people coming down from Manchester - think about how much petrol is used for that?'' he said. ''Think of the amount of people from the north west driving down there.

''Stoke fans, Bolton fans, City fans, United fans - and on the same weekend Liverpool fans are travelling down. And you've also got people coming down to see the London Marathon.

''It's going to be absolute chaos. I don't think the cost of people travelling down to Wembley is considered. You've got Villa Park and Anfield just there on your doorstep. It's quite incredible but there's nothing that can be done about it.''
