    But without Jose, how can we build a big wall and make Spurs pay for it?

    Why are we giving click to a liverpool channel ? the video has nothing of interest in it, a complication of three pictures shown again and again with some text (to spare you the click).

    Seeing SAF walk onto Carrington and inspiring all those players with a speech of greatness? I bet it was like Pacino's speech in Any Given Sunday.

    And when someone makes a bad tackle on one of our players, instead of shouting "Off, off, off" as the ref reaches for his pocket we should chant "Lock him up! Lock him up!"

    I’m all for free speech but I wish people wouldn’t start threads based on quotes from the sun. It’s just not worthy of this forum.

    As regards Sir Alex getting involved in first team, we should tread carefully. Prospective new permanent managers might not like the idea of a living legend marking their homework on a regular basis.

    Well then they shouldn't be considered for the position. If a new manager isn't willing to embrace the history and traditions of the club then they should ply their trade elsewhere.

    Then the new manager is not the right fit.

    Solskjaer seems to confirm the story himself. He said SAF spoke to the players.

    Going by what Rooney said about the mood being negative at Carrington because of Jose and the way he treated our young players, I strongly believe that SAF, a man who stand for the family values of this club and who strongly have faith in youth would have tolerate Mourinho around the club anymore. Mourinho was an insult to this club, to everything SMB, SBC and SAF stood about.

    Then he should just resign and feck off tbh. We gave to Moyes, LVG and Mourinho free reign and look how it panned out. SAF and SBC are living legends who have best interests of the club in their heart and would do things if deemed necessary. I don't think SAF would undermine a manager just to stamp his authority. Him and SBC are the guardians of our values.

    They say Fergie went soft in his later years, yet there he is, sticking it to Phil Jones in 2019!

    I love him.

    Not a fan of the Trump comparisons. Sir Alex is great man. Trump is a terrible one. Plus Ferguson is a labour supporter. I doubt that he has any time at all for Trump.

    . This 100%. I have tremendous respect as a rival fan for Sir Alex. Don't lump him with something so ugly.

    Maybe Tottenham could line up the wall if we concede a free kick.

    The brilliant thing about this man is that he will make a bunch of mannequins believe they are the best footballers in the world and get a world class performance from them.

    I wish I had a fraction of his man management ability.

    I've seen a few mutterings like this in the press recently. I wonder if there's not been a bit of a Fergie coup behind the scenes and he's trying to pull some strings to get the club working his way again. Frankly, after the last 6 years, I hope to God he is.

    No.:lol:

    I think some people still remember SAF from the old days and forget he is very old and just recovered from an illness. I doubt he retains his old powers of persuasion in his current state. Age always saps your skills.

    Most likely, he retains an interest in the fortunes of the club and simply supports Ed and the board by giving them advice if asked. I have no doubt Ed probably referred to him for Solskjaer's appointment, but make no mistake, the final call would have been Ed's alone.

    The man is arguably the greatest Coach/Manager in the history of sport. There's probably very few football fans around the world over the age of 20 that don't know who that man is and is revered through most other sports. When the man is front page of virtually every major newspaper in the world when he announced his retirement, you know he's fecking big.

    And thats not even considering the countless wishes sent from sports not even remotely close to football such as Formula 1 when he fell ill earlier last year.

    Ferguson clearly has left the club to its own devices and is now trying to get it back on track because we desperately need some structure. The new manager will have to look at stand named after him every time they sit in our dug out. If they cannot accept his position, then they dont deserve to represent our club.

    It’s more than an acronym. Believe me, nobody knows acronyms better than I do.
