Its been on my mind this past while that when the dreaded day comes when Fergie retires, leaving us to wonder who will be brave enough to take up his mantle, what shape will he leave the team in? Surely his best intentions are to leave the team for his successor to be as stable and strong and with as much depth as possible. He will want the next manager to not have to miss a beat when whoever it is takes over so we can still be competitive at home and in Europe. I know the issue of whether there is any money for player investment is always there for argument but there are things we cant dispute and the most important one is Fergie will leave the job one day whether or not we have the finances to back his successor. If we do and the finances are there then it stands to reason he will try to make the team as strong as possible before he leaves does it not? If the money is there then I see him significantly investing in the type of talent we need to succeed without him, proven talent to supplement the young players he has brought to the club. In the next two or three years I can see a systematic and deliberate approach from him to load us up for lack of a better term so he can leave us as strong as possible when he leaves. Does anyone agree?
