Manchester United: Alex Ferguson Going Nowhere

_42786021_fergie203.jpgNINE Premiership titles in 15 seasons is something even Chelsea’s self-anointed ‘Special One’ would be proud of, but triumphant red-faced Sir Alex of Ferguson has no plans to quit while he is ahead.

With the 10-man Blues putting on a memorable and surprisingly entertaining show at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, but failing to beat Arsenal and keep their titles ambitions alive, United’s Scottish king could drink from the time-honoured ‘flute’ of champagne in celebration and look to the future.

“Why should I give up?” asks Ferguson, “I feel invigorated by the young players at the club and players like Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes turning out every week for me. I don’t know how long I will last now but I am enjoying it”.

His charges can now bask in the glory of a Chelsea guard of honour in the now-meaningless mid-week clash at Stamford Bridge.

Fergie’s success this season, which could run to a league and cup double, is all the more worthy considering the mediocre likes of Fletcher, O’Shea and Brown in his ranks. For that and that alone he deserves another knighthood. And another ‘flute’ of champagne.
