    He said of the moment when the sign was unveiled: "I was really emotional. I couldn't believe it. I didn't expect that. I have to thank the club, it's fantastic of them to do that.

    "I'm really proud of this moment. Mike Phelan knew about it but never told me, so he's sacked! I had absolutely no idea."

    Such an amazing, and fitting, tribute.

    "But it wasn’t until a little while later that we were actually able to get him to come from Aberdeen to manage us.” It was as a player, as a striker for Dunfermline, Rangers and Falkirk, that Ferguson first came to Charlton’s attention.

    “That’s when he found out he was a good coach,” Charlton says. “I saw him at that time, and he’d forgive me for saying he wasn’t the greatest centre-forward in the whole world. But he had the work ethic. That work ethic from when he was in the Govan shipyards in Glasgow.”

    Mine would be,

    Schmeichel
    G Neville Vidic Bruce Irwin
    Ronaldo Keane Scholes Giggs
    Solskjaer Nistelrooy

    Never thought I'd say this, but you have to give credit to the Glazers for naming the stand after Fergie. A little bit of good PR, well overdue.

    But going back to the performance, United look a bit lethargic, making hard work of it all. I don't think they've mentally recovered from the mauling yet.
    Don't flatter yourself, United looked exactly the same before the City game. It's a bad patch complemented by a good deal of injuries. The fact we're defensively much better since that game seems to indicate exactly the opposite: we're recovering by playing efficiently.

    4 clean sheets, no coincidence that now vida is back we look MUCH better in the back.

    Rooney playing CM = fergie finally realising how $#@! our CM is and regretting not getting a good CM. Hazard or Gotze please

    When told he wasn't going on he stomped off down the tunnel mid game. That's why he tweeted "Piss take. Can't wait till the end of the season" and Rooney went back at him.

    People may liken his behavioural issues to Balotelli, but the difference is Balotelli is just innocently crazy, he doesn't run with gun gangs and he doesn't have criminal convictions which stop him going on tour with the club.

    He is United's bad egg. I already know it, seriously, get rid.
    Fergie already dealt with him and there is a reason why he is still with us, he is honestly THAT good, trust me, no one has seen a English youngster with the ablity he has.

    He is just a $#@! who is a bit black and he hasnt gotten in trouble lately.

    He's a kid and wants to play football; he then got frustrated, it's a non story.

    We broke the news on Saturday that United were set to clinch a deal for the 15-year-old - rated as one of the best players for his age in Europe.

    The Brazilian-born Belgian youth international has accepted an offer from United, and will leave the Philips Stadion for Old Trafford in the New Year.

    "I knew that PSV had given me my chance, but Manchester United is obviously a great club," he told VoetbalPrimeur.

    "Other British clubs were interested. I thought about it, but Manchester United is a dream club for me.

    "I have been a few times to Manchester United to have a look.

    "I got a tour and spoke with Sir Alex Ferguson. Being a 15-year-old and being able to talk with him is great!"

    Manchester United chief executive David Gill insisted on a top secret mission to rename Old Trafford’s North Stand in Sir Alex Ferguson’s honour in order to prevent the 69-year-old from learning of the tribute before its announcement on Saturday.


    Secret: Manchester United went to great lengths to prevent Sir Alex Ferguson from learning about his tribute

    The 25,500-capacity stand will now be known as the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand following Gill’s decision to mark the Scot’s 25th anniversary as Manchester United manager.

    A statue of Ferguson by renowned sculptor Phillip Jackson has also been commissioned by the club.

    But in an effort to prevent news of the tribute leaking out, the re-lettering of the stand took place under cover of darkness on Thursday night, finishing at 2am on Friday morning, before being covered by a 20-metre banner which read ‘Old Trafford, Manchester.’

    Six abseilers took part in the re-lettering on the roof of the stand and everyone involved was ordered to sign a confidentiality agreement.

    Only eight people within Old Trafford knew of the plans, which Gill had only revealed to the small group on Wednesday evening.

    A further meeting, on Friday evening, resulted in Gill telling the group of the plans for a statue, which were also subject to strict confidentiality.

    The press release announcing the renaming of the stand and plans for a statue wasn’t printed until the day of the game and no other staff, including club photographers, were informed until 2.45pm – five minutes before Gill made the announcement alongside Ferguson in the Old Trafford centre circle.

    Can't be easy keeping anything from Sir Alex.

    I've said before in this thread but I'll say it again because you've missed it.

    I used to work with the wife of Kenny Swain, he is the coach for England U16's and is assistant to U17's.

    http://www.thefa.com/England/All-Tea...ff/kenny-swain

    I spoke to him a few times about football and stuff. This guy brought through the likes of Wilshire & Rooney at international level. He has SAF on speed-dial and all sorts. In his playing career he won the European cup with Villa and was a key to their success in his era, he was a good defender.

    I asked him about Ravel and he said "In all honesty... the best English player I have EVER seen." I was like... you gotta be kidding.

    "no. He is incredibly good. He's just been brought up wrong. He's fell in with the wrong crowd because he never had a proper upbringing. But on the football pitch, he is remarkable. He will either end up in prison, or he will be the best English player of his generation if he meets his potential".

    I think it's clear that Ferguson's plan for the midfield this season was to see if Anderson could finally come good, and give Cleverley a chance to establish himself. Cleverley has done well and justified that faith. Anderson started well, but has since regressed, and doesn't actually seem that bothered. The guy who runs the Republik of Mancunia blog tweeted today that with Nani you always got the sense that he wanted to improve, and would try new things even when he wasn't in his best form. You don't get that same sense from Anderson, and unless he consistently returns to his early season form, I think his days are numbered.

    So we didn't buy a new midfielder, Cleverley got injured and Anderson disappointed - that's why we now need Rooney to play in midfield. I actually think as part of an attacking midfield he could do a good job, but the fact he's playing so far deep just speaks to the need for improvements in that part of the squad. If you're having to put your best player in a problem area just because there's nobody else who could do the job better, it's time to invest.

    I'm inclined to agree, don't think Rooney should be playing in the middle in an ideal situation. We'll see if something happens in January otherwise I can see Cleverly and Fletcher playing the a lot for the rest of the season.

    Cleverley and Fletch could be a good pairing if Fletch can get his form back, I'd rather see us buy a 20, 21 year old creative midfielder than say Snejider.

    If only Morrison had the same attitude as Tom Cleverley.

    I think Morrison has always been seen as Giggs replacement, don't think he'll be rushed to be honest. Might be a few years still until he's a regular, think that's why Young was bought.

    So hes left footed then? He can play wide and through the middle which is good.

    Will be gutting if we lose Pogba to one of the Milan clubs, he's stalling on a new contract and clubs are circuling! United wouldn't get much money for him. He looks a great talent, which Fergie has talked about...

    I think he is yeah, yeah pretty versatile which will be useful. I really hope Pogba stays, might just be a trick to play more in the big team or get a better contract. Seems odd that he'd leave when he's on the brink of making the first team permanently. Maybe he doesn't like the weather.
