United - He`s a Record Breaker!

United - He`s a Record Breaker!

I`d hazard a guess that we`ll not see the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson again!

Today, Sir Alex puts his name in the record books as the longest serving manager Manchester united have ever had.

The wily Scot has now been in charge for a staggering 8,811 days eclipsing the record held by the legend that is Sir Matt Busby.

In simple terms, Sir Alex has been at the United helm for almost a quarter of a century and like we said, we doubt anyone will ever match that.

Naturally, Sir Alex would like to have celebrated that remarkable feat with three points but inclement weather ensured the scintillating clash with Chelsea, this afternoon, fell by the wayside.

Speaking about overtaking Sir Matt, Sir Alex spoke about it feeling as if Sir Matt had been around a lot longer, with Sir Matt having to survive the tragedy that was Munich and rebuild, virtually, from scratch, wit Sir Alex remarking,

"I think of Sir Matt Busby as being here forever."

"His time here has been frozen into the memory bank."

"He started at the end of the war and went right through to winning the European Cup in 1968. The time span seems to be much longer than mine."

"Of course, there are emotional issues and he had to rebuild the team after Munich. There was so much emotion involved n all that."

"I didn`t have that. That`s the reason he seems to have been here forever."


I think you`ll agree, two remarkable characters who have done so much for our club!

RIP Sir Matt Busby and only in time will we be able to put into perspective what Sir Alex Ferguson has achieved.He is the most successful manager we will ever see in our lifetime and obviously opposing fans hate him(understandable) but we will never see a manager like him again! A true ledgend and a true gentleman and i have met him on many occassions and he's always been the salt of the earth!!! I NEVER want to see him leave our club in whatever capacity, he is a ledgend!!!
