Who will you like to replace him when he retired? I would love Jose Mourinho. But I'm afraid Man Utd will become the most hated team in the world!

Yes you right. I should not have suggested Mourinho. :) The problem is I don't see anyone else who can do better job than him. I admire the way he manage Chelsea. I guarantee you NO one else could do what he had done at Chelsea. Of course Chelsea had the sugar daddy that provide all the money. Yet it will take a truly genius to unite the team in the very first season. You just have no idea how hard was that!! I don't like Rafa style of play. I don't want Man Utd to become Liverpool! Though I think there is someone who can continue Fergie's works at Man Utd. Yes you right again. His name is Roy Keane. Fergie should stay for another 2 years to let Keane further his experience at Sunderland. Then after Fergie retired, Keane will be back to OT but now as a manager. It's a perfect plan.

Oh I know what you mean, you was logical in your choice, it just doesn't fit emotionally ;-) I know Jose is a good manager, his time before Chelsea has proved that, though I think his time at Chelsea has diminished his reputation in all honesty. I hope Roy's managerial career continues well, I think most do, non-United fans included, done a great job at Sunderland, though I don't think Fergie will be retiring for a long time! Bolton's Sam Aladace(sp?) has nothing planned for the summer :P

I actually think that Alex Ferguson will retire after next season and wouldn't be at all surprised if Sam Allardyce, who just resigned from the Bolton job, took over. I think it would be a very good move as big Sam did an incredible job at Bolton in a very small market and with a very limited budget.
