United - Getting To Know - Alex!

United - Getting To Know - Alex!

The first in a series we hope will give us an insight into those who visit this site.

1. Why United?

Mainly family influence really, my grandad lived and grew up in Manchester as a child and always supported Man United. Therefore he was a massive influence on me growing up playing and supporting football.

2. How long have you been a United supporter?

For as long as I can remember really, having grown up with a Man United supporting family I sort of had it in my blood.

3. Favourite all-time United player?

Only being 17 years old I can only really say players of the more recent generation so it probably has to be Ryan Giggs. In my opinion he has been the ultimate professional throughout his career and is a fantastic role model for any football aspiring person.

4. Favourite current United player?

As Giggs is still playing it`s still him. However very closely followed by Wayne Rooney, his passion and desire for the game is second to none and he is a very talented player.

5. Best United memory?

I can`t pick between the two most recent Champions League final wins. The last gasp goal from Ole Gunnar Solskjær at the Camp Nou was truly unforgettable, and at the same time the John Terry penalty miss in the 2008 final brought a slight tear of joy to the eye.

6. Worst United memory?

I think it has to be the 2009 Champions League Final defeat to Barcelona. Although we played terrible and probably deserved to lose it was still very difficult to take knowing that we could have made it two wins in a row.

7. Your hopes for 2010 / 2011?

Firstly I hope that our England internationals mainly Rooney can quickly recover from their dreadful tournament and concentrate on winning the title back from Chelsea. Also I hope for a serious injury free season, which probably will not happen however we can hope. I also hope we can bring in some fresh talent; Hernandez and Smalling are a start however those two alone are not going to add that significant bit of talent that we are going to need to overcome Chelsea.

8. Your thoughts on the emergence of Manchester City?

As much as I dislike their spending power the fact is they are becoming a big club, and will be more of a threat this coming season than ever before.

9. Who should replace Sir Alex when the time comes?

I think a man who knows the club inside out and has already worked closely with Sir Alex Ferguson; the only man I know capable of this is Carlos Queiroz. I was gutted when he left us twice, firstly to go to Real Madrid but then he came back, but then he left to manage Portugal. He is the best man to manage Man United once Fergie`s reign is over.

10. Any thoughts (printable) on the Glazer situation?

They have plagued our dear club with ridiculous amounts of debt, how can they be surprised by the outcry of the clubs supporters.
