United - Retirement Talk (Again)!

The thorny subject of if, and when, Sir Alex should retire continued to generate headlines this weekend, in the media.

Obviously aware of such talk, Sir Alex gave a brief hint regarding retirement at a Lord Taverners tribute to Sir Bobby Robson, explaining,

"If we hit a bad spell, it would not be the right time to go."

"I would not want to put the new manager into a situation where he was taking over a bad team. I want to leave Manchester United in a good, healthy position."

So is Sir Alex looking to rebuild ahead of a new man taking over?

Are his ambitions to claim back the Premier League title before retiring?

Or will Father Time catch up with Sir Alex before he can realise his final ambition?

Another league title plus wining the CL for the 4th time,3rd under SAF and building a team for the future will make him feel that he has done what he had set out to do.

I wouldnt be too upset if we miss out on milner. He is a good player but at 24, I dont think he is the unpolished diamond everyone suggests - I cant see him improving drastically. If I'm wrong and at 24 he really can make a huge step up then I'm even more pleased because having just turned 22 Anderson therefore still has a great chance at being far better than him. I'm also put off by the HUGE fee Villa would want. The idea of paying over £20m let alone over £25m for him fills me with dread. I can think of far better places for our club to invest that kind of money. If the prices quoted are accurate, I hope city do outbid us - on the other hand they might just be looking to drive up the prices of all our targets by bidding ridiculous money for them with no real interest in buying them.

Milner is not a necessity, Anderson has better potential like Tuscan said. I hope we do get a flair player who plays in the center of midfield preferably one who can score goals too! The fee is way too high for what he brings to the team. No point buying for the sake of it.

Fergie will not walk away until he's forced out - you'll see!
