    Tbh I am not even sure why he got that reputation.
    Oh, he's a decent footballer. Just not a top striker in a million years. And he has a nice smile.

    As a local, home-grown, lifelong Manchester United fan, it would've broken Ferguson's heart (?) to have to recommend that he be sold. Which shows how sub-standard he is.

    Although it is a cup competition and as such can be fluked (every English team to win it has proved this) Not Arsenal though, they don't seem to fluke things like the others.
    Quite right, Barry. I actually started to write something similar but I got my words tangled and couldn't be bothered to sort it out.

    In short: Arsenal will never win the European Cup in our lifetime.

    I know you are by definition a good man however I think you are being extremely generous in your analysis of Ferguson the caring person as opposed to Ferguson the ultra professional football manager.

    Fúck all to do with breaking his heart I expect he realised DW was never ever going to be a player good enough to play for one of the perceived elite clubs in the PL and on that basis recommended he be shipped out as soon as was possible.

    As any professional football manager should.

    Such as van Gaal, who actually sold him.

    That's what I mean; he'd been there since a child and everyone loves a homegrown, or "one of our own", as they call it nowadays, player scoring the goals that win you trophies. I ought to have said "broken his heart footballistically" maybe.
