ACROSS THE BORDER
Where the banned are
Sir Alex Ferguson, the greatest manager ever, 80 years old today.
For me, what makes Fergie the best ever was that he dominated in different eras.
Shankley, Paisley, Stein, Clough managed in a certain way in a certain era......as did Fergie at the outset.
He then adapted to the "Mega-star" era and managed the egos appropriately.
Would the others I mentioned have adapted in the same way?
Probably, they were men of incredible intelligence.
But they never had the opportunity.
Geatest manager ever? Well, may I just mention Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley?
