Website Editor:To mark Sir Alex Ferguson overtaking Sir Matt Busby as the club's longest-serving boss, we'd like to know your answer to the following question:What has been Sir Alex's greatest achievement as United manager?There are many possibilities of course, and not all of them are about winning trophies. You might, for example, consider the work he did in the early years to overhaul the youth system at United, or the way he has helped the club to grow in stature across the globe.The best and most interesting responses will be published in a Fanzone article on ManUtd.com. Thanks in advanceThe Editor, ManUtd.com.

Sun86:The first few things that come to my mind are the Class of 92, the Treble and knocking Liverpool of the perch, winning the 20th title!!
in england it has to be the no.19 doesn't it,in europe he's doubled sir matt's trophie record no disrespect to sir matt busby
IT WAS KNOCKING LIVERPOOL OFF THEIR PERCH...........
He has had so many great achievements, winning the Treble in 1999 has got to be one of the best, signing fantastic players such as Giggs, Scholes, Beckham, Cantona Berbatov & Nani..............the list goes on!!!!! The man is a genius & we as a club have been very fortunate to have him as our manager & may he continue for many more Glorious years ahead, his passion & enthusiasum are next to none & thats why the team MANCHESTER UNITED are the GREATEST!!!!!!!!
Sir Alex Ferguson's greatest achievement will come in May 2011 when we will be the greatest team for winning the most championships outright, but so for it has to be the 1999 treble
I believe that Sir Alex's greatest feat as manager of Man Utd, and consequently as a manager of football, is his ability to 'unite' millions of people worldwide, regardless of their age, race, religion, or location, under the banner of Manchester United and football as a whole. As a young person thousands of miles away from Old Trafford, my passion is as strong for the club as if I were 2 blocks from Old Trafford. For showing people worldwide how to play football the proper way, for showing people how to be a professional, and for showing people how to have passion for something, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, Sir Alex.
Lasting so long in the time of the disposible manager
Winning , Rebuilding, Winning, Rebuilding.....basically being willing and able to build a winner, know when to take it apart and rebuilding it again, a couple of times.
Absolutely everything that Sir Alex has achieved is based on his very rare, totally human ability to be 100% focussed, moment by moment, on his goals both for himself and for his team, coupled with his total commitment to doing the necessary work, moment by moment, until each of those goals is achieved and then combining these two qualities with his genuine delight at his recognition of each individual achievement of those around him and of himself.
To witness these abilities is a constant priviledge, joy and a truly inspiritational experience.
To have developed these abilities and applied them an a daily basis throughout his life, for as long as he has, including his stay at United, is clearly his greatest achievement.
Congratulations and thank you Sir Alex..
Lol! This man is superhuman. His greatest achievement though has been to survive and re-invent himself at the theatre for 24 years!!!! Not sure anyone can realize that kind of feat in this life time, the man simply is an enigma. Don't know when anything like that has ever lived. He appears to have the right cards at all times, even when u think its almost done. We all, mortals of all walks of life should toast to his health and wish him so many happy returns at Utd.
No doubt the 1999 Treble is the greatest of all in term of trophies. But in term of his United's career as a manager, i think that his greatest achivement is yet to come. As a huge Manchester United fans, i believe SAF will be very satisfied and delight if he can manage Man Utd to overtake Liverpool achievement by winning the 19th league title and the 20th...and also winning more Champions League trophy.This will make Man Utd the greatest ever English Club and shut up and erase all the Mersysiders only pride.hahahaha....
