ok yeah fergie I will give you that out of the manchester teams you have a great history. I wouldn't say the best history out of anyone but good enough. however, let's face it its all thanks to you. Sadly enough you won't be around for another 100 years.

Once you leave things won't always be great for Man U. The only reason and I repeat THE ONLY reason that man U was even competitive this year was due to sir alex. That and the fact that the other teams managed to shoot themselves in the foot more than once.

I'd like to see man utd fans say the same thing about liverpool's impressive history despite their recent form

I'm a MU fan, and admittedly Liverpool's history is undoubtedly impressive. Every club goes through a bit of a lull eventually.

So it will take 100 years for city to reach where man united are now in history? What about everything man united does over the next 100 years?

Oh dear history means nothing in the end when it comes to being the top club. Only the present and the future are important.
