I think by far and away the greatest achievment of Sir Alex's United career was the was he transformed the club from the bottom up, more specifically sorting out the mess of a youth system that Atkinson left behind.
Once Ferguson started sorting the club out as a whole rather than just the first team as Ron Atkinson, then that laid down the foundations for all the success we've enjoyed since then. Who knows, the Fergie Fledglings might well have ended up at City had it not been for Ferguson. That is far greater than any individual trophy or season in my opinion.
I think his greater achievement is that he built three great teams over the years (cantona team, treble team, 2nd champions league team).
That and the fact that through the periods that a team will naturaly "slow down" to be great again (3-4 years span), the team never finished below 2nd or 3rd place in the premier league, remaining highly competitive.
There is no dought he is the best manager in the world,his greatest achievement is to level liverpool and i hope he will broke there record this season
His greatest achievement?its prety obvious for me to be honest. He showed to the whole world how a club should be structured, where it should invest for long term success and prosperity. His methods are now used from the best clubs in Europe, like BarcelonaThe fans of MAN UTD should thank SAF not just for the success that he brought to this club but mostly because he built a club that will be succesfull for the next 20 years, with or without THE BOSS.
Hail SAF the greatest manager in the history of football
Sir Alex has won everythng in the game like many other great personalities in the english league and in the european game but there are 2 things which demark him from others. I think he is the only manager to be leading the team to glory for 3 decades. Undoubtedly United has dominated 1990 - 2000 and 2000 to 2010, but he has a team capable of doing it again for the next ten years. Secondly he has contracdicted the sayings that kids cannot win the league. Personnally I think 1996 was the best premiere league campaign for united. They sold 3 calibre players in the first 11 like kanchelskis, Ince and Hughes, and didnt buy any high profile players that time. Instead the coach introduced players like Beckham, Butt, Scholes and Phil Neville. Moreover, Cantona was not playing as was suspended for 18 months and i guess that he played only the last 2 months during that campaign and amazingly United won the premiere leaugue and the FA cup. I dont think theres any other managers in the world who can manage youngsters as well as Sir ALex. He has not only a great vision, but he can manage all sorts of players and maintain the tradition of Man United at the same time. This is why I believe that Man United have the greastest fan base in the world. For me Sir Alex Ferguson is the symbol of Man United and in some years when the great man retires I cant imagine United without him as i believe he is irreplaceable.
Obviosly all the trophies and development of young players and the Man utd way of playing attractive football which has kept us true fans enthralled for years goes without saying but we must remember his handling of the gutter press. It never ceases to amaze me how often he is misquoted by media hacks but retains his dignity. I also admire the way he never lets a player succed in becoming bigger than the club. Long may his heath remain so he can guide the club for years to come.
there are so many memorable achievements ,but i think his consistency stands him out
It would be his ability to create top class side after and play with the same football philosiphy all the way through his career. Never letting a player become bigger than the club and to overcome some of the toughest times as manager cause we kno it all hasnt been clean sailing through the years. to bring through a near world class england side single handily with the likes of scholes and beckham the ronaldos robsons keanes and top class bargin signing like solskear. he can b forgiven for veron and djemba djemba cant be rite all the time. i salute sir alex and wish him a further 24 years and thank him for bringing football to a new level
Sir Alex Ferguson greatest achievements for me have been everything. From the 1999 Treble winning season, to the 2008 Champs League and Premiership Double, to catching up to Liverpool's League record and hopefully beating it soon, 3 Premier League Titles in a Row x 2, to the 1991 Cup Winners Cup, All the trophies he has won for us and to all the great players he bought (Cantona, Ronaldo, Rooney, Van Nistelrooy, Solskjaer etc) and brought through the youth (Giggs, Scholes, Beckham, Fletcher, Nevilles, Butt, etc) which he built up. Sir Alex, you are a True Role model to all United fans from all over the world, your Scottish passion prevails, please keep up the amazing work and carry on. I use to say, no one is bigger than United, but Sir Alex Ferguson for me is United. From Johannesburg, South Africa.
the greatest manager ever and i always pray that one day before he retires i will get a chance to work with him thts all i can say....man utd best team ever i always wanna cry when i see achievments
