WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

Him dying would be news and then you can kiss his arse

Until then he's a cunt and so are you if you try to preach how brilliant the Jock cunt was making those tramp Mancs a money pit.

Fair play to Harry Kane for visiting Sir Alex Ferguson in hospital.

“His speech is improving and he can nearly string a sentence together”, says Fergie

No disrespect to Sir Alex at all, but isn't the media coverage more appropriate to when he actually dies (and it looks like he isn't going to any time soon) than to him being ill?

Re: Sir Alex seriously ill
Always seemed like a decent fella away from football, with a good sense of humour.

Absolutely incredible manager as well, the likes of which we will never see again in our lifetimes.

Get well soon you old soak.

Re: Sir Alex seriously ill
I wish him well. I had a grudging respect for him throughout the years but you only have to see the respect he earned from loads of top players and managers to understand the standing of the man. I didn't know about the John Lyall bit so hats off to him for that. He did a very nice thing last week for Wenger too which was great to see. They had their battles over the years but still had great respect for one another. Won't see the like of him and Wenger again but the amount of trophies Sir Alex won was unreal. Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery from me.

I wonder if Fergie is taking advantage of Private Healthcare during his recovery?

Re: Sir Alex seriously ill
My favourite Fergie quote about the NHS:

"The images of decay and neglect have remained with me and have never ceased to curse the Tory government for vandalising the National Health Service. Margaret Thatcher's aggressive efforts to privatise health care in this country were a betrayal of a service that has been one of the proudest achievements of our society. Her policies ruined people's lives and stripped them of their dignity'

Get well soon Sir Alex

Re: Sir Alex seriously ill
An absolutely legendary manager, to knock the old firm dominance off their perch in Scotland with Aberdeen, then do it to Liverpool in England. Top of the tree really, with messrs Clough, Paisley, Stein, behind him.

Absolutely nailed on for a Man Utd win on Thursday, plus Jose won't want to lose two on the bounce!

I don't hate any teams as I'm
Getting too old for that now.
Manchester United come close mind.He's record speaks for itself and Sand Irons earlier post regarding Jonny Lyall which I'd heard before confirms what he was about which I can't remember reading about in the press.
Very few in any proffesion get to the top without being controversial.
The blokes a footballing legend in my book.

Re: Sir Alex seriously ill
very sad but I don't hero worship managers of other teams. He was a nightmare against us and done us over loads of times BUT I dont think he deserves this saint like status

Lily Hammer 2:29 Mon May 7
Re: Sir Alex seriously ill
I've said it before, but in a parrallel universe, where that goal that saved his Man U job was not scored, he became West Ham's manager. It's not difficult to imagine, with his connections to Lyall. The timing was right as well. He was an East End (of Glasgow) dockers' union rep, from a docking family; more West Ham than Man U.

Gutted that I live in this universe, if I'm honest.

Re: Sir Alex seriously ill
He wasn't averse to using fisticuffs on some players. Joe Harper and Mark McGee came a cropper at Aberdeen and Beckham had an eye injury which was explained away by a flying boot.
If anyone crossed him,out they went.
Old fashioned methods perhaps but some players deserve a good hiding for the liberties they take.

£2m for Eric Cantona & Peter Schmeichel combined must be up there with his greatest achievements.

Re: Sir Alex seriously ill
His teams played with style and swagger, he had more money to spend than other clubs at the beginning but still built special teams, and even when other clubs come to the party with more money he'd still eventually come out on top. The reason he is the best, though, is that they never faded, even after a bad season (finishing 3rd) they'd come roaring back and win the league within a season or two. He maintained standards throughout, and even retired on a Premier League win at the age of 71. Phenomenal.

For someone to rate Bobby Robson against him, with the greatest of respect to a good football man, they are poles apart as managers, and it just shows you that they shouldn't be discussing football matters.
