Do you think this old coot sank the ship cause he was becoming senile and left it to sink right after?
ManUre had >Moyes and now Van Laal. They all get shit but no one mentions who let the ship sink.
There was never a ship to begin with, Ronaldo was the last truly great player they had. Fergie was actually just captaining a boat made entirely out of duct tape, wherein to get anything done all he had to do was yell at officials or his own players. Literally nothing about the players which made up the majority of United's title winning sides indicates they are at the level they actually played at.
I never really subscribed to the notion that Ferguson even cared about tactics, all he knew was the 4-4-2, and he got the most out of it/the players with second-to-none man management. Turning a sail boat made entirely from duct tape into the British armada.
He was going to retire the previous season until City sneaked the league in the last game
He put all his wizard powers into winning one last title and didn't give a fuck about building for the future
What most people don't realise is that when a manager has been around as long as fergie had, the players are fully his because they know in a choice between him or them, the board will always choose him so can't chimp out like a lot of footballers think they can when their upset, they have to play for him, and would get abused off their teammates for being bitches to a manager the rest of the squad adore because he's been around for their entire career
>le ferguson was bad at tactics meme
All you meme masters should rewatch his 06-09 United play. Their attacking formations were some of the most creative and fluid I've ever seen. Sometimes the way Ronaldo, Tevez, Rooney switched positions and interplayed looked like it was straight out of Pep Guardiola's wet dream. They also did the whole false 9 thing with Rooney before Barcelona with Messi
