    Not a footy fan myself but thought others would want to talk about it:

    BBC Sport - Sir Alex Ferguson is going to retire at the end of the season

    Absolutely gutted about this. I'm a United fan but as a football fan the sport has lost one of the most influential managers it has ever seen.

    Don't know what else to say really!!

    Think it has been on the cards for a while, but he has been a fantastic manager over the years, It's good news for the United fans that he is staying on as a board member.

    Be interesting to see what happens to the club now - might go through a few managers before settling on a long term.

    Moyes is the early fav - wouldnt rule out The Special One yet!

    As much as he can be seen in bad light and jokes made about things like "fergie time" he's got to be one of the most successful football managers ever and I dont think anyone will match what he has done with Man Utd and whoever takes over has some massive massive boots to fill

    I have to admit, from a non Football person like myself - I cannot deny that he has been one of the most successful managers of any football team.

    As a blue Im with you but I just have that horrible feeling - Jose said he fancied the Utd job at some point in his career

    First Thatcher Dies, then Ferguson Retires. Somewhere there is a scouser with a lamp and one wish left.

    Pretty huge news. Not even close to being a Utd fan but have always admired and respected him, even though he can be an arse on occasions. Incredible to think he's been there since I was 2 years old, the whole time I've followed football he's been ever present.

    Expected him to go a couple more years to be honest

    Assume you are not a United fan then?

    English Football will not be the same. This is a huge loss for the game. 26 Years of success deserves some respect surely???

    Not a ManU fan, but what he achieved was amazing, not just at Man Utd, but also at St Mirren and Aberdeen (Beating Real and Bayern in CWC).
