He was gentlemanly, even if a slightly divisive figure, different class of male to Mourinho and certain others in recent years
Married into a Scouse/Jewish family and they all loved him when he was the boss and directly attribute his reign to success in Istanbul 2005. You can see their logic. Got rid of under performers, but they complained he let McMannanmaman go. Tough crowd.
It's only the FA Cup (sad phrase to write) and Liverpool are hitting a dry spell, plus the game aint over yet - but United look more fluid and just easy on the eye than I've seen 'em for a long time. Exciting on the break again at last.
The celebration was a bit much... wasn't it South Africa when two teams were battling to come top or something and it was basically gonna come down to goal difference and they both won about seventy nil?
