I remember watching a vid like this quite a while ago, and its so funny!

Thats is why I never, and have never doubted Sir Alex!

I may not always agree with his decisions (but they usually prove to be right :p) but I have never questioned his position as manager.

I wonder what they've got to say now! :D

We should hire Dannny Fullbrook to clean our trophy room. I love irony. :D

I don't know what Fullbrooks doing now but he used to be chief football writer for the Daily Star. From what I've heard, that isn't a prestigious position. :p

...they've been nowhere near the final since '99, they've not won a title
for two years, to come in a third year where they don't win a trophy....anywhere
else on the continant, the manager would be out on his ear...
Ehh...Arsenal have been reeling in the trophies alright! Eh? :rolleyes: Never won the CL, title not since before Chel$ki's double!

I'd love to bash the bloke around! :mad:.....


...sad night that was alright! But thats football, look where we are now, and BTW,
LMAO at the end! ;)

Fergie will not be fully appreciated until he retires.
This man has given us supporters so many great years and memories that will last us a life time.

Totally agree. He sometimes makes seemingly strange decisions, but time and time again he is invariably right. How he stays so focused when he has won everything, doesn't need the money and is in his 60s.................... This is indeed a very rare manager. I hope Carlos replaces him but there will never be another SAF.

He really does make some strange decisions and sometimes really does get it wrong, like against Roma when he admitted as much. BUT he gets it right more often than not and for him to be so focused an hungry for success even after all these years is simply inspiring.

A lot of youngsters think football management is like playing Football Manager and won't really appreciate him until they enter working life and realise how tough it can be to manage people.

Now multiply that by a hundred times. Fergie is not just maanging people, he's managing multi-millionaires who have big egos and are prone to be very sensitive towards criticism. He's also managing the fans expectations, the media's nonsense, meeting the obectives set by the owners.

On top of all that, he has the patience and confidence to rebuild teams that had to be dismantled.

I strongly believe Sir Alex Ferguson will be widely recognised and accepted as the greatest football manager of all time and we don't really know how fortunate we are to have been witnesses to his genius.

Most great managers build one good squad, but Fergie hast built 3 or even 4.

What a fantastic post, which I totally agree with.

Sadly, their will be a time when it all has to end. But until then, we can be continue to look forward to the season, and the games, and be truly grateful to have a manager like him.

Thats a bit of a worry.. whoever replaces him will only be able to look down cos he'll never emulate what Fergie has achieved and that is a worry!

It takes time to build a team capable of winning the CL and PL in the one season.
That is what Fergie has done. Legend. This squad can still win trophies for the next five or six years and then it will be time to re build again.
