What If?

What If?

Everyone knows that Sir Alex Ferguson can`t go on for ever.

It`s widely accepted that, one day, the Scotsman will decide to cal lit a day.

But, when that day is remains anybody`s guess.

Nevertheless, the day when Sir Alex does retire is something that David Gill has to be planning for and as the squad prepare to come back from the American tour, he`s offered the world`s media a few thoughts on the matter, commenting,

"Whatever people might say, there won`t be a meltdown when Alex goes. I`ve said before we don`t know when it will be."

"We`re trying to make sure we get the quality of the team and the age profile correct so the new manager coming in - whoever that might be - has the nucleus of a world-class team."

"Clearly the new manager will have hi sown ideas and will want to change two or three players, but if he wants to change 12 or 13 he probably won`t be the right manager for United."

"It will clearly be a sea of change for the club and we have to be ready."

"But to be honest I never discuss retirement with Alex. We talk about his fitness but he delegates well and football keeps him young."


As well as when, I`m probably one of those who also ponders; a lot, as to who will come in.

How about you?

It will be a sad day for football when Fergie decides to give it a rest. It won't however be the end of the world for us despite it being a popular belief to many. Fergie's ensured that the next manager has a good set-up to work with. Personally, I still reckon Mourinho is the ideal replacement, the only man with the ego to not let Fergie's shadow phase him and also provide the trophies. Not only that but there's a real hunger and desire to get his hands on the job.

It won't be the end of the world for you when taggart finally departs, but I do suspect that you may end up having several seasons of managerial upheaval. The dark lord's reign at united is not likely to ever be repeated, and the weight of expectation amongst your fans and the press will heap so much pressure on any potential replacement that he may be gone after a few poor results. Wouldn't want to be the sacrificial lamb that has to follow ferrgie, and for those of you that suspect Mourinho will automatically step into the breach, you can kiss any semblance of attacking football goodbye if he takes up the post, that's for sure!

Mourinho and Guardiola seem to be the only candidates with the self belief to follow Fergie. Of those 2 Guardiola would be the one who's team would be more attack orientated.

If the choice was between Guardiola and Mourinho it would be Guardiola any day of the week. Can't see him leaving Barca though, at current everyone else is a step down the career ladder.

Not sure about Guardiola leaving Barca - he apparently doesn't get on with the club's hierarchy, and he almost walked out on them prior to the start of last season. Not sure whether he'd be interested in taking up the reigns immediately after taggart retires though, think the only person with the brass balloons to come immediately would be Mourninho.

gonna be tough on whoever takes over, and could be the Sir Mat Busby syndrome all over again, going thro the managers with such regularity,and who IS there out there? dont think Mourinho will do it straight after Taggart tho, a tough call for Gill, a must get it right1st time, with the pressure from the fans and, the always being compared to Fergie, very difficult for the new man....
