Whether Fergie has allowed the same mistake to be made is far too early to say yet.Not embarrassed just yet.I wasn't apportioning blame on Sir Matt but I think the appointment of Wilf McGuinness as his successor was a staggering decision.Wilf just wasn't qualified to take over from Sir Matt and give coaching instructions to the trinity of Law,Charlton and Best as well as inheriting a team that was past it's best.The odds were stacked against him from the start.It was the start of the decline in my opinion and reached it's climax in 1971 when Sir Matt finally retired and Jimmy Murphy left the club.
The real point I was trying to make was that Sir Alex will be aware of what happened when Sir Matt stepped down and will not allow the same mistakes to be made.
As the Lawman asked...how much patience will a new man be allowed? A season?
Not even that Lawman from some ' fans. '
Some great posters around then.k-stand red,King Cantona,ERRN,Liz,Ned,Condor.
But the best of all was the Lawman for me.I've not met anyone with a greater knowledge of United than John.
I hope life is treating him well.
