Manchester United: The Kids
This is a famous saying among many Manchester United faithful’s. The club has achieved it success mainly in two periods when the club was managed by two of Scottish greats, Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson. It has proved time and again that longevity at a certain club is an essential factor to achieve success as a manager especially for a club like Man U. Both have build dynasties which were the best in English football. The 'Busby babes' and 'Fergie Fledglings are a testimony to the dynasties they build. No such team (other than Liverpool) have been able to achieve unparalleled success due to their lack of longevity with their manager. Failure is a part of life and it is the stepping stone to success. Fergie hadn't won anything in his first 3 years at Man U and Busby won his first league in 1952,6 years after his appointment in 1945. From then on both won numerous trophies and accolades along the way to greatness.
With Ferguson in charge of the club the red devils faithful have nothing to worry. But with age on the wrong side of the gaffer there has been speculation that replacements are being scouted by the gaffer and Chairman Gill. The bookie’s favourite remains to be Pep Guardiola and 'The Chosen One'. David Moyes also seems to have an outside chance of landing the job.
The Question now for Red devils Faithful is that whether the next manager appointed will stay at the club and guide them to an extended period of success rather than a short term period. 'The Chosen one' hasn't been at a club for more than 2 seasons, Pep is relatively new. This leaves only Moyes to have some Longevity at Everton.
There seems to be a lot of Problems once Fergie hangs his boots but he has assured the fans that the right man will succeed him and success will continue to follow through the doors of OT.
In an interesting turn of events Sir Alex Ferguson has retired from the game as manager. Having spent 26 years at helm, the Red Devils manager felt the time was right to step down and allow his successor to build his team. He has moved to the member of the Board of Directors and will give his successor a guiding hand in managing the club.
In a separate press release from Chairman David Gill, it was stated that the successor to SAF had already been decide and will be announced tomorrow.
This has send waves of interest among the fans of the world who eagerly wait for what many consider the biggest decision/appointment in the history of Manchester United and world football to an extent.
Alex Says GoodBye
Tears dropped from Alex’s, David’s, and Nemanja’s eyes, as he left the room and when he opened the door a huge noise erupted, all the players stood there clapping their hands as he opened the door, and each one had donated 50% of their wages from last week to Fergie, every single player, even the staff had given some towards him, along with several bottles of champagne and things to remind him of his unforgettable career at Manchester United Football Club, The Red Devils, the club he loves.
