Some Man For One Man

I know you're probably sick of hearing about Sir Alex Ferguson and the 25 years that he has spent at Old Trafford but I'm sure one more article wouldn't hurt.

It really is an astonishing achievement by the Scotsman especially in this day and age where managers are under pressure to deliver results more than ever before. I can't see United ever being the same when the day does eventually come when Sir Alex Ferguson must hand over the pleasure of managing United to another world class manager.

In his time at the Theatre of Dreams he has won 35 trophies which, in itself is truly remarkable but many more trophies look set to be making their way to the trophy cabinet at Old Trafford in the years to come.

There is no doubt that he is one of the best, but is he the best manager that there ever has been? There aren't many of the same caliber as Ferguson so to say he isn't would be gutsy and brave.

This season though, Ferguson looks set to face his biggest challenge yet as he tries to overcome the "noisy neighbours" City and win a 20th league title. Man United have been quite shaky these past couple of weeks, with a 6-1 defeat still fresh in the memory of both sets of Manchester fans.

What do you think? How much longer will Ferguson be manager at United and will he be able to stop City this season?

I would love to hear any comments you may have.
