Alan Hansen, a Liverpool legend, writes at Telegraph: It is impossible for any team to play at their top level for 38 league games a season, but there is no reason why they can’t give maximum effort for 90 minutes in each of them. This is what has given United impetus at the start of [...]

The gaffer denied suggestions that he will make any financial gain from the controversial share plans of the Glazer family. Being aware of the media coverage that is currently ongoing I felt, on this occasion, that I should make my position clear to theManchester United fans. In regards to suggestions that I have praised the [...]
Via The Telegraph: I will probably have an interest in Manchester United in some capacity of course but the important thing is to cut yourself completely off. I would never go to any other job or anything like that, no chance. Once I’m finished at United I’ll be heading for the hills and the sunset.
Sir Alex has seen 1023 managers come and gone, and there are 22 managers already lost their jobs in Premier League and Football League this season. The Guardian reports on what Sir Alex think about the rise in manager sacking in English football.
Via Nick Coppack: 1023 – Since Sir Alex took the reigns at #mufc in Nov 1986, 1023 managers have come and gone in English football. Stat confirmed by LMA. Some more details: That includes managers who have been dismissed, resigned or left by mutual consent. He’s been that long with us. Just amazing. Amazing. Amazing.
Sir Alex: Manchester United and its supporters should know very well the chants that have been levelled at us over the years – ie songs about Munich [the 1958 air disaster] – and understand the sensitivity that is felt. I don’t agree with it at all. There’s enough to think about and admire in the [...]
Sir Alex Ferguson and his thoughts on World Cup as quoted by Guardian: A lot of teams and a lot of players were disappointing at the World Cup. There is only one team who took credit and that was Spain. They kept a reasonable momentum and playing style throughout the tournament. The rest were spasmodic [...]
Evra is one of our best player of this season and currently the best left back in the world (i’m biased, whatever!). He reveal how every United player are under pressure to be on the top of their game at all times and is constantly worried about keeping his place in the side: ‘This club is [...]
He should learn how to tackle, but he’s sorry for that: “After half-time, I spoke with the coach and he was unhappy with me. That is normal, as tackles like that are not permitted in the Premier League. I accept my responsibility for my actions, though they were not premeditated. I insist that my objective [...]
I thought the card could cost us the title (that was before Saha scored the 2nd goal), but our boss think otherwise: “We have gained. It was an important night and, with Everton winning against Chelsea, we have gained one point and one goal. It could be important point.” On Nani’s red card: “It was a sending [...]
I rarely post enemy related post here, but this one is too good to be missed. Sir Alex reckoned that Manchester City is not a real threat, instead, like the last 2 seasons, Chelsea and Liverpool will. “Manchester City are getting all the back page stories and they will hold that position for the rest [...]
I found this rare emotional interview of Sir Alex at The Sun titled I’m Scared to Quit Football. Some excerpts: “Three things can make me stop. 1. My health. 2. If I don’t take pleasure any more. 3. If I don’t have the strength for new challenges any more. “Today, I am playing the penalty [...]
There’s a cool write up in the Official Site titled Celebs ask Sir Alex. Here are 3 of my favorites: You seem to be the object of more public speculation and criticism than any other manager has ever had before. How does it affect you? Simon Le Bon, singer (Duran Duran) I think it’s part [...]
Following the money would have led us to an Arab sheikh. Or a man in a suit controlling sport from his seat behind a desk. But this has not been a rich list. It is The Times Power 100 and, among our criteria, we have measured the power to put bums on seats, to stir [...]
