Media Watch May 12: Sir Alex is now beyond Busby
May 12, 2011 – There are more Manchester United stories in the media than any other club – some are worth reading, others are absolute garbage! How can anyone possibly keep up with them all? Truly Reds does it’s best to bring you the latest news but there’s only so much that can be covered. One alternative is to collate the stories which cannot be updated daily so that they can at least be brought to your attention each Thursday of every week
Sir Alex Ferguson was again the Premier League man of the week – and the season
Had anyone told me in the early 90’s that the legendary Sir Matt Busby would soon be eclipsed at Manchester United as their greatest ever manager I would have tried to have him certified. Busby brought United from the brink of extinction after World War 2, created the legendary Busby Babes, built a United side which was loved by all of England and brought the European Cup to Old Trafford just ten years after his work was destroyed in the Munich snow!
Yet here’s another Scotsman, going beyond all of that, to set up a record which will take the mother of all miracles to ever surpass. Liverpool fans will point to their wonderful manager Bob Paisely and his three European triumphs. Sorry, I don’t buy it. That was another world and a totally different European Cup. Sir Alex Ferguson – Manchester United and the whole football world salutes you.
