He was definatelly up there with the top goalkeepers of all time, Lets see if his son can follow in his footsteps, So far he looks just as promising and he's only 20!!

Cantona, Schmiechel, Keano, and in the future, Rooney and Ronaldo.

Of course there are more like Best and Law, but I wasnt alive to see them =]

I wrote this back in May and wasnt bothered writing it out again so here it is: Sorry about the length btw.
He has made lots of great signings and these are the most important ones in my opinion:
Ill start with the Pally/Bruce combination at the back. These guys were the foundation of the team in Fergies early successes. Big characters and big players for us.
Denis Irwin was mr.reliable for united. played over 500 games over 12 years and only cost £650,000. Bargain
Schmeichel is a united legend, arguably the greatest goalkeeper of all time. He only cost half a million which is nothing.
Giggs was obviously a great signing and the way Fergie robbed him from under Citys noses was genius.
In more recent times you cant look much further than rooney and ronny despite costing a lot. They could and should become united legends and are very important to our current team. Vidic is also a great signing. We needed a tough cookie at the back in the Bruce mould, which is exactly what he is.

And finally to his two best ever signings. Im finding it tough to seperate them but I would give second place to Cantona, At 1.2 million he was possibly the greatest bargain of the century. His name still reverberates around Old Trafford ten years on. This guy was a genius. He could make something out of nothing and win you a game in the blink of an eye.He is one of Uniteds best EVER players.

And to Fergies best ever signing. This accolade goes to Roy Keane, Uniteds most successful captain ever, arguably uniteds best captain ever. The way he determindly pushed his team forward and drove them on was the main reason behind uniteds success. When he was out injured for long periods Uniteds form slumped and that says it all. Perhaps not the flashiest or the most skilful player ever but he is up there with Best and Charlton and Man Uniteds best EVER player.
*bows* Beautiful :)

Hard question shemichael was a hell of a bragain at that price, but the best signing could be between anyone I mean we've had great players for not alot of money Keane Cantona etc. And Ronaldo wasnt VERY expensive!

Why Do People Keep Saying Keane Was A Bargain? Yes He Was Cheap Compared To Todays Prices But At The Time His Transfer Broke The Brithish Record For A Transfer. So Even Tho I Think He Was A Great Signing I Don't Think He Can Be Put On A Bragain List
