A Tribute to the Boss

When people abused him, he ignored them and let his players make them cry.

When a ‘respected pundit’ laughed at his ‘kids’, he made sure the pundit’s words would haunt him to this day.

When the world wrote him (and his team) off as a fading force, he gave them a fitting riposte; one that was delivered by his team with such force and breathtaking style.

Well, I’ll spare you the rhetoric as I can go on and on with this one. As some of you might have noticed, at the top menu of this site is the Sir Alex Ferguson Page where we plan to build a shrine/tribute to the great man. We hope to build up on whatever form of media (print/audio/video) and put together a nice compilation. At present it has some 60 odd memorable quotes which we hope to add to.

If you find more interesting stuff, be it audio/video/print please do not hesitate to get in touch with us using the Contact Form. We will attribute you in our credits.

Hope you find our compilation to your liking.

  1. not like the editor of this site he is still speechless about the king ,sir alex.It was november 2005 i could not believe wat was writen about sir alex .

  2. Great manager.
    I know this might not be the place for it, but, I’m just a little bit concerned as to what will happen when he retires. I have the feeling we’re gonna go back to being just an average club with average managers for a couple of years to come.

  3. “I don’t think I could have a higher opinion of any footballer than I all ready had of the Irishman, but he rose even further in my estimation at the Stadio Delle Alpi. The minute he was booked and out of the final he seemed to redouble his efforts to get the team there. It was the most emphatic display of selflessness I have seen on a football field. Pounding over every blade of grass, competing if he would rather die of exhaustion than lose he inspired all around him. I felt it was an honour to be associated with such a player.”(Alex Ferguson on Roy Keane after the European Cup semi-final in the 1999.)
    This is a historical quote and you forgot it…
    Also the “As with every young player, he’s only 18” it’s for Beckham

    Thanks for that quote. I’ll add it. I am sure there are plenty other stuff I may have ignored.

    And about the ‘he’s only 18’ I guess you are right. Damn Wikiquotes!

  5. btw – RR – fixtures coming out this week. mind you, if you put them up the PL people will probably mail you (er…us) threatening us with lawsuits…
