'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Ferguson Philosophy

As Anfield beckons, Sir Alex Ferguson has come out, in the tabloid press this morning, with a few quotes that might seem to be a little unusual.

Talking about his reign, Sir Alex had this to say,

"I said to the directors 15 years ago - maybe more than 15 years ago, you have to remember that the most important person at Manchester United is the manager. The minute a footballer becomes more important than the manager, your club is dead - the history of this club goes down the drain."

"I am the most important man at Manchester united. It has to be that way."

"I`m a phenomenon but I`ve certainly mellowed."


Well, there`s not much to argue about there, or is there?

love his confidence, and to be honest he HAS built this club up again - he IS the most important man at Utd, and when he goes unless we get someone who can come close to filling his shoes I think we may very well be in trouble
