10 Classic Alex Ferguson Quotes
Like him or loathe him, the one thing you have to admit is that Fergie was a fantastic source of top quotes. Always willing to wind up the opposition or the media, with some quip or dig, his one-liners could get under the skin like no one else. So now he's retired and the quotes might not be so frequent as before it's a good time to relive some of Fergie's best quotes...
No.1 "I can't believe it. I can't believe it. Football - Bloody hell !!!"
No.2 "It’s getting tickly now - squeaky-bum time, I call it."
No.3 "Sometimes you have a noisy neighbour. You cannot do anything about that. They will always be noisy. You just have to get on with your life, put your television on and turn it up a bit louder."
No.4 "My greatest challenge is not what is happening right at this moment, my greatest challenge was knocking Liverpool right off their f***ing perch. And you can print that."
No.5 "Do you think I would enter into a contract with that mob? Absolutely no chance. I would not sell them a virus."
No.6 "I think he was an angry man. He must have been disturbed for some reason. I think you have got to cut through the venom of it and hopefully he’ll reflect and understand what he said was absolutely ridiculous."
No.7 "It’s City isn’t it? They are a small club, with a small mentality. All they can talk about is Manchester United, that’s all they’ve done and they can’t get away from it."
No.8 "He was 13 and just floated over the ground like a cocker spaniel chasing a piece of silver paper in the wind."
No.9 "If I’d tried it 100 times or a million times, it wouldn’t happen again. If it did, I would carry on playing."
No.10 "Sometimes you look in a field and you see a cow and you think it’s a better cow than the one you’ve got in your own field. It’s a fact. Right? And it never really works out that way."
Obviously whilst he was at Manchester United, one of the richest clubs in the world, Sir Alex Ferguson's and his player's were used to having every conceivable bit of kit made available to them from top-of-the-range boots and training kit right through to personalized sports bottles.
Now he's just like the rest of us (well, almost!) at local sports clubs - looking for any bit of kit that could be BPA free and of use to the club !
