    He's at the top and on the verge of poor health with that pending hip operation. Perfect time to retire, that's a long time to be in any job. I hear he isn't jacking it in entirely though as he has a director position lined up. No pressure on his successor...!

    Surely, that's like walking up to a group of people and saying "I don't care about whatever it is you're talking about....and I want you to know that!"

    Anyway...good riddance to Fergie. Always came across as a nasty piece of work. Banned the BBC because they exposed his son in a Panorama programme.

    Lets put it into context

    Last time he announced his retirement, United had a massive dip in performance, think they dropped 15 points out of a possible 27, by which point he said he is staying on. Now he is at the pinnacle of his career, he has won 49 trophies in 20 years, which by any standard is phenomenal, he has the highest turnaround of players in terms of amount paid for then sold for/valuation (Ronaldo, Rio Ferdinand etc), he also has a club loyalty with players and develops good grass roots relationships as he regularly hosts childrens' club matches across the country, which is also why the Utd youth squad is ridiculously strong also.

    Lastly, he will have a massive input over who replaces him, and there have even been hints at Carlos Queiroz coming back also, which cant be ruled out as there is no guarantee Iran will keep on his contract beyond August this year.

    I like Alex but his son is the idiot! When he joined us at Preston he said all these things and went back on his words time after time.

    As for Alex, I dont think anyone should have a bad word about him, hes one of the most successful managers ever. There is no denying that and the game wont be the same.

    As for Utd, I dont think they will ever be the same again.
