    a great manager no doubt. statistically the best. this is going to sound hyper-critical, but i always think he got a bit lucky with the golden generation coming through and tactically he could have been a bit better. i think he's always been one or two quality players short of a great european team.

    sad to see him go though. not sure moyles is the right man. its going to be an interesting next season.

    True, can't forget what he did at Aberdeen. The rest of your post smacks of jealousy

    he managed East Stirling before St Mirren, they did not have a goal keeper at the time, you should read his biography, it was fascinating.

    He will be missed. Can never argue with success of his kind. I cannot think of any other coach in any other sport coming close to Fergie's success.

    The special one Mourinho is infinitely more interesting than Fergie. Brian Clough was also pretty special as was Jock Stein.

    anybody willing to make any predictions for moyles. i like him and hope he does well, but i reckon he will be sacked before the end of next season. the squad needs an almost complete overhaul giggs, scholes, rooney, young, vidic, ferdinand, evra, nani, valancia, hernandez and fletcher are all question marks for one reason or another. thats a lot for a new manager to deal with, especially under the pressure moyles will be under.

    its also been a long time of playing defensive tactics as everton boss, can he freshen up his tactics enough to go away and attack teams like man u have to do to pick up 3 points rather than the 1pt at everton.
