The Fergie Era Is An Adult Now

The Fergie Era Is An Adult Now

Sir Alex Ferguson celebrates his 21st year in charge of Manchester United today.

Having lost 4-1 against Southampton with a team full of good but indisciplined, boozing, lazy players, the United board went out and recruited a manager famous for being strong and single-minded. And thus the Empire was forged.

The wily old Scot has been in charge of United for 21 years now and accumulated a number of trophies I can hardly count. His era at United can now drink alcohol, can vote and all sorts of things as it is now an adult in legal terms, too.

Would have been fine to mark this with a 2-1 win at Arsenal but some unforeseen circumstances (a big Frenchman with an appalling haircut popping up and delivering a finish we believed to be beyond him, to be precise) denied us. However, the Red Machine should have no trouble with destroying Dynamo Kyiv, a team who can claim to be lucky to have got away with only four conceded at home two weeks ago.

It's a quite a shame that United are not top of the league as we were at his 20th anniversary but so be it... The current team is surely one of the strongest that Old Trafford have seen during these years so it's understandable if Fergie, with all the disappointment about Gallas' equaliser, enters his 22th year with genuine optimism and belief in his side's chances of silverware.

He just looks the same as he did when he took over. Apart from the grey hair, the glasses and the forever purple face which turns a darker shade each year :D

I doubt whether any other Prem manager will reach that milestone - the pressures placed on them are too great these days, instant sucess is craved for!
