You know I keep thinking about Sir Matt Busby and what he'd think of Manchester United now, if he was still alive. I remember on TV how proud he was when we won the title back in the 1992-1993 season, after a 25 year absence.

I also keep wishing that he'd still been alive when we won our 2nd Premiership title, he died in January 1994, only 4 months until the end of that title winning season, and if he was still around to see the glorious 1999 treble, he would be so proud of fellow scotsman Sir Alex Ferguson and all the players at Manchester United.

What would he think of us reclaiming the premiership title from Chelsea this season past?

I couldn't say enough good things about that man because he made Manchester United the club they are today and I feel Sir Alex is emulating his reign at United, and I think Sir Alex deserves to do one better than Sir Matt did, bring the European cup home for the 3rd time in our history.

When I go to Old Trafford again on the 1st August, I'm going to stand below his statue outside the East stand and thank him for all he's done at United, I do it all the time when I'm at Old Trafford because he means so much to me and what he's made United become.

It's because of him, that I am proud to support and love Manchester United football club.

Long live Sir Matt Busby in the minds of all United fans all over the world, he's an absolute legend and should never be forgotten!

I think he would be a very proud man indeed to see that the 'plan' he put into action was very successfully carried on by Sir Alex - after we had a few blips with good but not great managers.

Sir Alex was close to Sir Matt - they were even born just a few miles apart in Govan.....and Sir Matt helped SAF in his early years at Old Trafford.

The two of them are the two best managers to ever do this job - and they were both UNITED !!!

Sir Matt had big shoes, and I think Sir Alex's feet fit them perfectly as far as dreams for the team, expectations, loyalty, commitment, etc.

I kind of feel bad for whomever has to take Alex's place. Let's hope that fateful day that whomever takes over has some big feet of their own! :)

I wouldn't mind Roy Keane or Eric Cantona to take the helm or even "Sparkie" Mark Hughes.

If he new we are keeping the youth policy strong at Utd and players were breaking into the first team because of it then he would be a proud man knowing his legacy was still in tact..
