The Fluid Creativity office was united in grief/sheer joy (depending on who they supported) by the announcement that Sir Alex Ferguson has decided to hang up his chewing gum and retire as Manchester United manager.
Being based in Manchester, Fergie has had a profound effect on all of our lives; for the United supporters, he’s a living legend. To City and Liverpool fans, he’s a lifelong menace. To the sole Newcastle United fan, he’s the bloke who sent Kevin Keegan into meltdown and thus deprived them of their only title in goodness knows how many years.
No matter what you think of the man, though, there’s no doubting what a fantastic legacy he’s left behind. In tribute, we’ve put together a timeline detailing Fergie’s achievements at Manchester United. Here’s to you, Sir Alex.
