Why Alex Ferguson is Still on the Pitch

Because his wife Cathy didn't want a retired Scot in the kitchen bothering her. T Mag has an interesting portrait of Sir Alex this week. You don't want to miss it.

N.B: I am a Liverpool Fan.

We always talk about this and every year the guy seems to keep on going. We have managed to get an answer,a hypothesis, Fergie will die during a football match and they will bury him right underneath that centre circle.

@ Shehzu:
Despite the savoury comments, this kind of defeat will certainly not kill him, on the contrary...

The tempting question now is: who's next to follow Arsenal and Salford United's company of flogged bums?

akagugo said...

OH NO...

When I first read this, it was not clear that Fergie was actually, really, definitely bowing out. When you give it a good thought, what did he have to prove after accomplishing his avowed mission: "Mon plus grand défi a été de faire tomber Liverpool de son putain de perchoir."??

So, Dame Cathy, unless you buy some kilos of his favourite chewing gum, you'd better get used to having the Scot bothering you...

Now, let me concede that, we, fans of other teams, were actually jealous of the success of Salford United: a hungry, never-say-die, expert manager eager to crush any opposition, with an incredible flair to detect and recruit fresh, budding talent, channel youthful energy, crush egos and take incredibly astute coaching decisions to force destiny to sway in his favour.

But now, it's over...

Probably another Ferguson-type manager: driven and passionate about his job!

Moyes was doomed to do better than SAF's impeccable legacy.
These two are going to be my favorite contenders for manager of the year in the coming years

Nice chart on SAF's track record.

Rodgers has had a fantastic season despite not having a bench as deep as City, Manu and Chelsea. That should improve a bit with playing in the Champion Leagues later this year.

Don't know that much about Martinez.

Do you have a favourite team?
