I`m Going Nowhere!

I`m Going Nowhere!

At twenty four years and three hundred and five days, Sir Alex Ferguson is by far the longest serving manager in English football.

But, as he approaches his seventieth birthday, it`s widely accepted that the boss can`t, despite his beliefs, go on forever.

There will come a tortuous day when Sir Alex will have ot step down and a new era will begin at Old Trafford.

His eventual successor is a subject that has been discussed numerous times and although one name (Jose Mourinho) is often touted about, I guess we`re still very much in the dark as to who that person will be.

Talking about that precise predicament, Sir Alex has offered the media the following comments,

"Over the years I`ve had the question who do I think will replace me?"

"Now some of the coaches who people were talking about to replace me don`t have jobs any more."

"So it becomes difficult because someone who I think has potential may be sacked by his club and disappear."

"I think you need someone very experienced in the long term."

"But I have absolutely no idea…..and I`m not retiring anyway."


Great to see the gaffer is as bullish as ever and has no immediate plans to call it a day!

At one point I did think Mourinho would take over after Fergie but now i'm beginning to have doubts. This year we've made a transition and utilised the youngsters and are playing more easy-on-the-eye, fluid, positive attacking football all of which Mourinho seems the complete opposite of. Mourinho will come in and no doubt be more than capable of handling the pressure placed upon him but I don't think he'll get the funds he wants to buy 2 world class or there-abouts players for every position, something his done at Chelsea, Inter and Madrid. He goes for the tried and proven rather than the young and inexperienced which might be good for the short-term but horrible for the long-term and he also won't offer much stability and will most probably up and leave before too long.

I agree with you, FamousNo7, regarding Ferguson not stopping till he drops. Even if he does retire while he still can, who's to say that won't be when he's 75, or even 80? It would be astounding, but then, he's known for feats of astounding, isn't he? You are jammy beggars, getting a manager like him all them years ago. Honest to God, if I had a time machine I'd somehow convince him to sign for Everton rather than you lot!

Haha Bainesy. Then you wouldn't have that fantastic manager in Moyes you've got. Speaking of Moyes, isn't he another manager whos been considered to takeover after Fergie?

I suspect taggart will retire at some point in the near future, he just won't go broadcasting the date around to anyone. When it comes it will be quick, and it will take everyone by surprise, as we've all seen what happened the last time he announced his retirement!
