Sir Alex should drive the bus.
I wonder what would happen if Fergie wanted to sit on Zlatan's throne
Wonderful man, our Jose. He just gets it
Ducker has basically plagiarized United we Stand and Mitten's interview with Jose and the latter's article on ESPN. It's frankly embarrassing.
This is exactly why Jose is the perfect manager for Manchester United. No small time mindset like Moyes and not an overinflated ego like LVG. Jose respects what Sir Alex did for the club and Jose is big enough to not see him as an hinderence. Big respect to Jose not sure many people would act like this, being honest I am not sure I would. It also shows what a massive mistake it was not making him number one choice after Sir Alex.
Zlatan doesn't sit on seats, he sits on thrones.
fixed my post
Then Zlatan will sit on Fergie. Simples
Where have all those conspiracy theories about Giggs and the CO92 gone?
There were some really gullible people on here last season.
I really love Jose, and must say that I am more attached to this group than I have been to a squad for quite a while I think. Perhaps it is their ability to actually entertain me, but I feel more giddy than usual to watch them play.
I just pictured that
I feel similarly and it's because this foundation feels sustainable. With Moyes everything just sucked and under LVG, bar that stretch at the end of 14/15, it felt like we were fluking our way to victory quite often and scraping by on DDG's brilliance most of the time.
He really does. I've always thought he was a United fan deep down
Sir Alex goes on our away days more tanked up than the lads on the shuttles.
It's a shame they don't explore/explain that any further, would love to know why Fergie wanted to be on the team bus.
Sure as sh1t wouldn't ever be late again if he did.
Dang. A bit too late for WH away fixture
Conspiracy theories that stemmed from people asking why the Manchester United board (and Ferguson) chose not to hire Mourinho in 2013. He was available, no offer was made.
I don't subscribe to the conspiracies, but I'd be keen to know why Jose was overlooked in the first instance.
At a guess he probably misses the experience of travelling to a game with the team
I reckon he would also miss the dressing room before and after a game too
Bless SAF asking if he can ride on the first team bus.
And let Jose park it after.
Congratulations. You win the thread.
SAF must be curious about Jose's secret bus parking method.
I imagine the relationship between the two is cordial - nothing more, nothing less.
You'd expect Mourinho to be accommodating and to make an effort, he's unlikely to do anything that would make headlines and bring about added scrutiny - as in: "Mourinho bans Ferguson from team bus."
Mourinho admires Ferguson. Ferguson respects Mourinho.
Yeah but when his next request was "Can I touch her boobs?" Mourinho only agreed reluctantly.
That was peak Caf madness
This is quite heart warming to read of course, but I'm also a little wary. Doesn't take long for jealousy to set in.
Ask the questions. Don't make up the answers.
I'm a bit surprised. Seemingly the general consensus is to keep previous managers/executives away from the operational stuff. There are several examples of previous figures looming in the background with unhealthy influence.
They probably have judged it harmless though, case by case judgement is required after all. If Mourinho thinks it's fine, I think it is too.
He's probably letting him drive the bus. No wonder we're always late for games I. London.
The only real suggestion of a rift between the two only ever come from outlets with a proven dedication in trying to show Ferguson up in as bad a light as possible and picked up by allies on the media believing that they had some kind of inside knowledge because of their position as the more notable fanzine. If RI announced the moon was square, Sam Luckhurst would run to his editor with a print-out in hand demanding it be taken seriously as a hard news story.
I'd bet his mere presence on the bus had a little effect. It's easy to forget that a lot of the players haven't experienced the fire and buzz that must've been around with Fergie.
Mourinho seems to view Ferguson much like Ferguson viewed Busby. One needs a certain level of self confidence, decorum and class to adopt such a behaviour.
Mourinho is a man made in the same image as Busby and Ferguson. And so the torch passes on.
Good times ahead and the club seems to be in safe hands.
I think there are two main reasons why this works in this case.
One: Ferguson and Mourinho has always gotten along. Even when Mourinho was winning league titles with Chelsea, he's always spoke of his respect and admiration for Ferguson. Ferguson on his part, also seemed to like Mourinho, pointing out how Mourinho is similar in some ways to himself.
Two: Mourinho's CV, reputation and standing in world football cannot be questioned. He stands equal to Ferguson in that respect (he's arguably better in some ways, having won the CL twice way before he reached Ferguson's age) and can't be undermined in his authority the way someone like David Moyes (Third and Second Division winner) could.
And most of all, away from the pitch and glare of the camera, he's most likely just a decent human being who recognises how much Fergie has done for the club and there's no good reason to alienate the old man from his life's work.
Its similar to how I expect Ferguson would have treated Sir Matt when he joined the club, and Sir Bob too. Thats the only to do it imo.
That'd be the one. Especially since SAF has, as far as I am aware, a perfect track record when it comes to our subsequent managers. He either offers supportive comments or he ignores the media.
There is no reason not to have him around when he wishes to be.
Well he did snipe at the Smug Scot
Can't blame him on that one though, 'we need to aspire to City's level', 'SAF would have struggled with this squad'
