Think On This Sir Alex!

Think On This Sir Alex!

Something for the old-boy to mull over!

Whilst the footballing world pays homage to one of the greatest managers the game has known, Sir Alex Ferguson, as he disappears (well not for another game at least) into the sun-set, we`d like to point out a few things.

We believe it should be pointed out that whilst Sir Alex contemplates retirement, the name of Chelsea Football Club will haunt him!

It transpires that Chelsea were:-

• The last team to beat Manchester United, in the Premier League, at Old Trafford with Sir Alex in charge.

• The last team to knock Manchester United out of the FA Cup whilst Sir Alex was in charge.

• The last team to knock Manchester United out of the League Cup whilst Sir Alex was in charge.

And, we believe,

• The last team to beat Manchester United in the Community Shield whilst Sir Alex was in charge.

I think you`ll agree that`s not a bad quartet!

Last man to knock him out of the CL : Jose Mourinho, who's coming to... Chelsea. GOOD BYE SIR ALEX.

His won more trophies than your club has won throughout its entire history. Somehow I doubt the name Chelsea will come back to haunt him.

I've seen this before on another site a couple of days ago, but Sir Alex can rest assured that Chelsea will always pose a big threat to the likes of ManU and Barca. I'm a bit sad however that Sir Alex decided to retire this year, i was getting excited to see him lock horns for the last time with JM for the pl title... Could it be that his decision was partly based on the fact that JM would pose a big threat to him next season i.e. dethrone him before he could win another title???

The other site jumped the gun cos if Swansea won today it wouldn't be a famous quartet would it!

Sir Alex decided to leave the Didier's way-Champion. You never know what the Special One had in store for him (i believe he's on his way to Stamford Bridge). He was sure next season would be a different story altogether.

If Mancini leaves City and is replaced by Pellegrini (as being rumored), with Sir Alex already out of the picture. Are we half way to winning the title next season already? and Who will be next nemesis of JM and Chelsea???

"@premierleague: Sir Alex Ferguson: "I don't think Wayne Rooney was keen to play simply because he's asked for a transfer. But we won't sell him." #MUFC"

Chelsea has the best record against Man U in Sir Alex era in premier league. I think it's 14 wins 13 draws

@Tiraspol - pellegrini was our back up, but who knows he could have been No.1 choice for Roman!! Only Roman knows! Who knows if there even is a deal with Jose or it's gonna go through!!

7.01pm Sir Alex Ferguson tells the BBC that whether Wayne Rooney stays is no longer his decision. 'We have refused it (Rooney's transfer request). He should go away and think it over. It is not my decision now. 'He is not happy he has been taken off a few times this season.' 6.55pm Gary Neville on Sky Sports: 'Rooney's got an agent and friends and they need to give him the right advice. There's only one club where he should be playing football.'--------------------------For me getting Rooney is a big gamble now, will have a lot of baggage and guilt with him , exactly sinilar to Torres and Liverpool. We should steer clear...........

If Lukaku won't get a change to lead our line next season, I'd imagine he would want to leave our club on a permanent basis. This is exactly why CFC need to thing long and hard before buying another "Trojan Gift". Same goes with Thibaut Courtois, who needs to come back to us and put pressure on Cech. What a summer we're heading towards...

Fergie saying they won't let a player leave! How many times have we heard that in the past then there sold. Beckham and Ronaldo both were told publicly they were not going. I think we will see Wayne Rooney sold to the highest bidder before the end of July. Hopefully Chelsea

syed230183_chelseafc, Chelsea is the only PL team with a winning record against Fergie. 14 wins & 13 defeats. Mata's goal last week was the decisive goal that swung it in our favor.

@cobham thanks for that.--------- Rooney has deep emotional ties to Man U more deeper than say Torres had at Liverpool. I am not sure if he can adjust to the craziness and the intense media scrutiny that will be on him!! man U is a very stable environment, with very few changes.............
