this is no scolari, this is GOD!

ten league titles, two champions leagues, five fa cups, two league cups, one uefa super cup, one inter-continental cup and one fifa club world cup speak volumes. not to mention two league and fa Cup doubles and of course the unprecedented treble in 98/99 (something we may eclipse this season!)

during the last 22 years rival managers have come and gone, with only arsene wenger at arsenal providing any long-term challenge to sir alex. Each time a new rival comes onto the scene like dalglish, mourinho, grant, benitez or scolari for example, it seems to drive the manager more and more to overcome their challenge. his hunger for success after 50 years in the game is incredible. his refusal to settle for second best is an example to us all.

of course, we still have to face the fact that one day in the future sir alex himself will step aside. personally speaking I hope that this day is many more years into the future and that by the time he does it, we will have completely usurped liverpool as the most successful english club of all time.

no matter what the future brings, sir alex ferguson's era is one that will never be forgotten by anyone who has lived through it.

Thank you, Sir Alex,
for everything you have done...
for my club.
