Top 10 Fergie decisions

10. Saying 'No' to Spurs and Arsenal

UNITED weren't the first English club to try to tempt Fergie away from Aberdeen, where he had become a legend after winning the European Cup Winners Cup.
Tottenham wanted him to replace Peter Shreeves and Arsenal saw him as the man to take over from Don Howe.
But when United came calling, Fergie headed south in November 1986 to take over from the sacked Ron Atkinson.


9. Finding seventh heaven with Ronaldo

FERGIE'S knack for spotting emerging talent was bang on with an 18-year-old from Sporting Lisbon called Cristiano Ronaldo.
Fans feared that United would never fill the No7 shirt properly after Becks left but Sir Alex gambled £12.24million to make Ronaldo United's first Portuguese player - and now Real Madrid would gladly hand over £80m or more.
Not bad business.

8. Hanging on to Ronaldo

EVEN diehard United fans feared that Ronaldo would not give his all for United after the will-he-won't-he transfer talk around a move to Real Madrid last summer.
But Fergie stood his ground, put two fingers up to the Spaniards and had the last laugh as Ronaldo turned on his superstar quality to power his team to another Premier League crown.

7. Seeing the back of Becks

DAVID BECKHAM'S relationship with Fergie started to deteriorate almost from the moment Becks married Victoria.
Something had to give - and Goldenballs left for Real Madrid in July 2003.Who was right?
Well, since booting out Becks for £25million, Fergie has won silverware galore, while his former superstar has won...er, one La Liga title with Real Madrid.

6. Keeping faith with Ruud

FERGIE raised eyebrows in 2000 when he stuck to his decision to sign Ruud van Nistelrooy from PSV Eindhoven for a British record fee of £18million despite the Dutch star suffering a serious knee injury.
In the summer of 2001, Fergie got his man and Ruud went on to score 150 goals in five seasons.

5. Putting retirement on hold

UNITED'S form dipped in 2001-02 after Fergie announced his decision to retire at the end of the season.
Then he changed his mind, and the following season they lifted the Premiership trophy with an incredible fightback after trailing Arsenal by eight points two months before the end of the campaign.

4. Launching super subs to sink Germans

BAYERN MUNICH players were already celebrating with their fans as the clock ticked away the closing seconds of the 1999 Champions League Final in Barcelona.
Enter substitutes Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solksjaer with a goal each in time added on, and United won 2-1 to life the European Cup for the first time since 1968. Oh, and Alex became Sir Alex.

3. You CAN win things with kids

ALAN HANSEN told Fergie: "You can't win anything with kids."
The reply from Old Trafford during that 1995-96 season was "Oh yes we can," as United scooped the league title with a team that included Gary Neville, Phil Neville, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt.
A youthful Ryan Giggs was there to turn that Fab Five into a Super Six as United overhauled Newcastle's 14-point lead at the top.

2. Signing Roy Keane

FERGIE faced a tough call during the summer of 1993 - who should he sign to replace Bryan Robson?
The gaffer plumped for a tough, rough but talented Irish kid from Nottingham Forest by the name of Roy Keane and a legend was born. Keano cost a bargain £3.75million and stayed for 12 magical, momentous years.

1. Buying Eric Cantona

UNITED were struggling in tenth in the newly-formed Premier League in November 1992 when Fergie stunned football by signing "loose cannon" Eric Cantona from Leeds.
The cannon started firing goals and United won their first top-flight title for 26 years, 10 points clear of runners-up Aston Villa.

Obviously he doesn't work alone. You are saying you have been a United supporter since about 10 years and you haven't understood the basic dynamics of a football club? Surely you aren't that thick.

The club obviously has a number of scouts working in different continents across the world along with the entire coaching staff.

You are correct about one thing, Sir ALex does take the final decisions.

Next time we'll beat them to pulp in Anfield". something like that sad
