Sir Alex Ferguson was special for so many link sbo reasons – but not least his ability to deliver big results for Manchester United when key players were missing.
United dominated English football under Ferguson, winning 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups and four League Cups in his 26 years in charge.
The Scot also, of course, delivered the Champions League twice, plus the European Cup Winners’ Cup, a UEFA Super Cup, an Intercontinental Cup and the FIFA World Club Cup, but English clubs struggled to sign the very best players in the world then just as much as they do now.
There were times, in fact, that United didn’t even have what most people would consider to be the strongest squad in the Premier League, certainly after Chelsea and then Manchester City had been taken over, but Ferguson was able to instil a winning mentality in his players – and fear into opponents – almost irrespective of the team he put out.
Conversely, David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho have all complained link sbo about the lack of quality in the United squad since Ferguson’s departure, with none of them able to deliver a league title.
Plenty believe they have a point, too, with Mourinho, like his predecessors, missing out on several of his transfer targets during his time in charge.
But the Fergie factor worked some minor miracles. Yes, he presided over some of the greatest sides ever assembled in British football, but when signings fell through or the depth of the squad was pushed to its limit, he simply got on with the job.
Here are five occasions – in no particular order – when United were victorious when, maybe, they had little right to be. link sbo
