Today is 25 years at Manchester United for manager Sir Alex Ferguson and I have been wondering what I could possibly write for this occasion. I simply cannot write anything that is worthy of this great man and his legendary career. There has never been anyone like him nor will there be another like him ever again. He is greatest manager in football history. He is arguably the greatest manager/coach in the history of sport.

There have been countless pieces written about Fergie this week and I figured I'd compile some of these links for your reading pleasure. Feel free to share your thoughts, memories, and appreciation for the United boss in the comments below. Below is Fox Soccer's discussion of Fergie's legendary career and below that are the links. Feel free to link any other good reads that you may have come across.
