Retirement - What Me?

Retirement - What Me?

It didn`t take long to get a response did it?

With the Wigan owner, and good friend of Sir Alex Ferguson, Dave Whelan, declaring that he believed Sir Alex Ferguson would be calling it a day at the end of the 2012/2013 season; the speculation relating to a successor for Sir Alex hit over-drive.

However, despite his recent health scare that saw Sir Alex taken to hospital with a nose-bleed that wouldn`t stop, the wily Scot has decreed that Dave Whelan is wrong and that he will not be retiring, as long as he feels he can offer something to the club!

So it looks as if the Ferguson dynasty is set to continue.

I really do wish that Whelan would just shut the feck up about anything football related, talk about a blabber mouth. Even if this was true he had no place saying it. Hate arses like him!

Blue_Mel there's no article on it because to be frank no-one gives a feck about Hazard. Pre-saga yeah we would've liked him but when he exposed himself for the egotistical, narcistic mercenary that he is I think most United fans said feck him get someone else. From what I understand the Hazard deal is going to cost Chelsea 80 mil of which only 35 mil is the transfer fee and the remaining 45 mil is on the player himself, what a joke! It will only cause unrest amongst the proven premier league players who have been at Chelsea longer as, lets face it, Mata, Luiz, Terry, Lampard and co are going to demand more money and up goes that wage bill which you can't afford considering the FFP ruling. I can't speak for the entire United fan base but I do feel I speak for a large portion of them when I say, we'd prefer Kagawa anyway. Best of luck to him all the same as it's not going to be easy for him, especially after his media performance so far I bet they're licking their lips at the prospect that he doesn't perform to the Messi or Ronaldo-like standard his had us all believe he's capable of. Not much worse than seeing the media ruin someones career .

The Fear, I know what you mean but feck it let Whelan have his five minutes of fame and let him make himself feel important. Glad to hear Fergie wasn't going to let a nose bleed cause his retirement :P

Apparently the nose bleed was a result of him picking his brain so much trying to figure out where his 8 point lead went. :)

Taggart will go with his boots on - can't see him ever retiring, especially now that City are a genuine threat. But agree with the Fear - Whelan loves the sound of his own voice and frequently goes off on one without a second thought. He needs to heed that old maxim about putting his brain in gear before engaging his mouth.

was the 'Nose bleed' due to City winning the/His Title? he may have more to come.....and as far as him retiring? i cant see it anytime soon, but the man is getting on and maybe it is time to call it a day, soon and let everyone remember his triumphs, and not like what everyone remembers the legend that was/is Brian Clough, and the way he left Forest, in relegation and struggling in the aftermath, all good things come to an end.....
