25 Years

25 Years

The newspapers, this morning, are full of articles and stories relating to Sir Alex Ferguson celebrating twenty-five years in charge of Manchester United.

Many feature quotes from players, past and present, that pay tribute to the great mans achievements.

Sir Alex himself though, remained quite modest when asked about his tenure and the caliber of players he`s worked with during those twenty-five years, commenting,

"I`ve been very fortunate to have some of the best players in the game."

"It`s quite incredible. You look at the list of players when I came at the start - Robson, Norman Whiteside. Then Brian McClair, Hughes, Paul Ince, Roy Keane, Cantona, God, what a collection of players, they were fantastic."

"The present players have different personalities and different cultures."

"It`s something you don`t think is going to happen. It`s a bit of a fairy tale to last so long."

"It`s such a varied time in management. Things change as the years go on."

"It`s a different way of managing than it was."


I guess, like most things, the changing world we live in has influenced that.

As an aside, will we all be sat here pondering, in five years time, a thirtieth anniversary?

Is there a single United fan interested in answers to the 99 points made by club shareholders Magner and McManus that have never been addressed and led to Fergie's settlement over Rock of Gibraltar stud rights. Amazed that they were never taken up by the national media - perhaps news from United is too important and they would have been banned from covering United or boycotted. This is probably not the time but it will all come out one day. For now, well done on the trophy haul Fergie

I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if he was still in charge in 5 years time and we were all celebrating a 30th anniversary (how do you top the 25th though?!). He's a phenomenon, he really is.
