The Successor to Sir Alex?

At seventy-one years of age, we all know that Sir Alex Ferguson can`t go on forever.

In fact we`re up with those who believe that Sir Alex has done more than enough in his managerial career and will, inevitably, step down one day very soon.

To that effect we`re intrigued by tabloid speculation, this Sunday, that offers up the name of the person who Sir Alex Ferguson believes should inherit his job.

In what is a lovely, but rather lengthy, article, Sir Alex gives, apparently, his blessing for Laurent Blanc to take the reigns.

Blanc, currently in charge of the French national team, a team England face on Monday afternoon, has done more than a decent job in reviving the fortunes of the France team since that disastrous World Cup campaign of 2010, in South Africa.

The former central defender is also blessed with the fact that he spent time as a player at Old Trafford, therefore, we have to ask - Is Laurent Blanc the heir to the Ferguson crown?

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Surely you mean the Sacrificial Lamb? I reckon you get through about 2-3 managers in quick succession after Slur finally goes, as nobody but Slur Alex could flog the dead horse that is your current squad into overachieving. Of course, it helps that the FA and PGMO are utterly terrified of him - once the fear factor is gone, you'll have a good few seasons in the doldrums. Not predicting a Liverpoo - style collapse immediately, but here's hoping, eh? ;)

Blanc is a fantastic manager at both club and international level. It's no coincedence that Bordeaux have only ever put in a serious title challenge in Ligue 1 and broke the Lyon stranglehold when he was there which has slowly disappeared since he has left. Nor is it conincidence that since his took over the role as France manager the France national team has been rejuvinated and revitalised from the pathetic, selfish, squabbling state it was at the World Cup to it's current, strong and solid undefeated self. Fergie has tried and failed to sign him on as his assistant a couple of times already so it tells you it all of how much he rates him. His got to be a serious contender to be manager of us post-Fergie and is one of few who could possibly cope with the role.
