Charlton made 604 League apps and scored 199 League goals(Man Utd record)

the same piece of gum......he uses some sort of chemicals to store it....paid for by the transfer budget of 2006......and he just re-uses it...and reuses it.......typical Fergie....

It was rumoured that when Ole scored the winner in '99 in the CL final Fergie did
his usual act of trying hard to jump in the air - as we all know he cannot do this,
he tries hard but his feet never leave the floor :D


During his 1999 efforts - he got so involoved in trying to launch himself just a
couple centimetre from the ground - he actually swallowed his original piece of

Despite numerous attempts by his doctors to find it - involving many searches of
Fergie's toiletry deposits it was never found - so since 27th May 1999 Fergie's
gum was in fact a new piece.........

Rofl Sal...

Sorry for the delayed response, but you're all wrong so far :p

SAF did play for Manchester United. I have proof and can tell you where to find it "written in stone" as the saying goes... but not until someone posts the answer :D
Alex Ferguson grew up in Govan and supported Rangers. He began as an
amateur at Queen's Park, making his debut at 16 as a striker. He described his
first match as a "nightmare"[1] but scored Queen's Park's goal in a 2-1 defeat
against Stranraer. As Queen's Park were an amateur team he also worked in the
Clyde shipyards as an apprentice tool-worker, where he became an active trade
union shop steward.

Although he scored 20 goals in his 31 games for Queen's Park, he could not
command a regular place in the side and moved to St. Johnstone in 1960.
Although he continued to score regularly at St. Johnstone, he was still unable to
command a regular place and regularly requested transfers. Although he was out
of favour at the club, their failure to sign a forward led the manager to select
Ferguson for a match against Rangers, in which he scored a hat trick in a surprise
victory. Dunfermline signed him the following summer (1964), and Ferguson
became a full-time professional footballer.

The following season (1964-65), Dunfermline were strong challengers for the
Scottish League and reached the Scottish Cup Final, but Ferguson was dropped
for the final after a poor performance in a league game against St. Johnstone.
Dunfermline lost the final 3-2 to Celtic, then failed to win the League by one point.

In 1967, he joined Rangers for £65,000, then a record fee for a transfer between
two Scottish clubs. He was blamed for a goal that they conceded in the 1969
Scottish cup final,[2] and was forced to play for the club's junior side instead of
the first team.[3] According to his brother, Ferguson was so upset by the
experience that he threw his losers' medal away.[4] There have been claims that
he suffered discrimination at Rangers after his marriage to his wife Cathie, who
was a Catholic[5] but Ferguson himself makes it clear in his autobiography[6]
that Rangers knew of his wife's religion when he joined the club and that he left
the club very reluctantly, due to the fall-out from his alleged cup final mistake.

The following October, Nottingham Forest wanted to sign Ferguson,[7] but his
wife was not keen on moving to England at that time so he went to Falkirk
instead. He was promoted to player-coach there, but when John Prentice became
manager he removed Ferguson's coaching responsibilities. Ferguson responded
by requesting a transfer and moved to Ayr United, where he finished his playing
career in 1974.
