I dont think Mourinho is a candidate for us! :D

This is interesting though, Frank Rijkaard (Barcalona) will quit at the end of the season. He might be a candidate for Chelsea when they sack Mourinho, but if Fergie is going to quit at the end of the season also, i really hope we can hire Rijkaard as being the next manager! He did an excellent job in Spain and i'm sure he can become a true United legend if he's willing to join.

I know its only speculation but nobody knows who will be in the frame simply because nobody knows when Fergie is going to call it a day. I suspect within the next 3 years but who knows? Not even Fergie can answer that one, yet.

Frank Rijkaard, what planet are you on?? I would have Lippi myself, but I would love Steve Coppell to take charge, I think he is the best candidate.

I thought he would leave at the end of this season when we have reclaimed our title but he blew that out of the water 2 weeks ago when he said there´s no chance of him leaving, he´s enjoying it too much. Who would want to leave when you get to watch players like Rooney & Ronaldo get better and better... Whoever eventually comes in it´ll be a bloody hard job.

I think we should go for someone who understands the English game. I think Keano's a great legend, but hes got a fiercer temper than SAF. Players like Ronaldo (if hes still at united) and Rooney would clash with him and leave. Probably bring in someone like Mark Hughes, or maybe promote Queiroz and give him a chance. It seems like hes calling most of the shots anyway.

OK lets assume for the purposes of speculation, that Fergie announces his retirement at the end of the 2009 season.

Between now and then the following hyperthetical issues occur:

Roy Keane continues his march up the Championship and clinches promotion with a win in the play offs.

Next season he takes his squad, strengthened and finishes between 8th and 11th in the Premiership as United continue, amidst intense speculation in the press, to look for Fergie's successor.

Gordon Strachan continues to dominate Scottish football with back to back championships, coupled with 2 FA cups along the way. Rangers continue to dog their heels but cannot catch up.

Mark Hughes maintains Blackburns top half of the Premiership position, finishes the 2009 season in 5th place and win the Carling Cup.

Portsmouth, under the coaching in Joe Jordan, maintain their top 6 places in the Premiership and have also beaten Chelski on the way to finishing 6th in the 2009 Season. Reached QF in both the FA Cup and CC.

OK, I have picked 4 ex United players out at random and played a fantasy league finale to the 2009 season. BUT, if as it was suggested, United stay at home in their quest for Fergie's replacement, these are 4 major contenders.

There is also the option of looking around other clubs but that list is far too long for me to bother about here.

How about Jose?
How about Curbishley?
How about Jewel or Allardyce?

No one can ever say who will be the next manager, no one knows when fergie quits. I get back on this once Fergie reveals his retirement.
