Best Ever Reds
Sir Alex Ferguson believes the current squad is the strongest he's ever managed.
Of course the lovable enthusiasts of Aberdeen cannot be compared to our current crop of world class players so any comparison can be done only with former United teams.
Sir Alex does not do this and I will do that only at the end of the season. Until then it's pointless but it will be worth examining if Fergie got it right: is it really our greatest ever squad?
'I believe this is the strongest squad I've ever had, so much so I think I would be pushed to name my overall best team,' he told the Daily Mirror.
'We have young players led by Wayne Rooney and Ronaldo and now joined by the likes of Carlos Tevez, Nani and Anderson.
'This is a good young team coming together and they have great courage in the way they want to play. They want to win something and the signs are good. We have a great chance of doing that this season.'
And hopefully that something won't be only the FA Cup.
