Manchester United Hire Carlos Queiroz, Their First Foreign Coach: Being Portuguese and having lived in Manchester for eight years I find it interesting and exciting that Fergie has chosen Queiroz as his new assistant manager. Especially since Sir Alex is supposed to retire in a year's time and Queiroz's contract is for three years. Mancunians are notoriously non-xenophobic and welcoming, but I wonder if the Old Trafford mystique won't be ruined by Queiroz's old European ways. I mean, even his slightly loony opinions are being lampooned on Man United's web site, even as we speak...

Erm ... doesn't Ferguson being Scottish make him the first foreign Man U coach? All Imperial conquests aside, of course. koff koff.

I don't think Fergie will retire in a year. He is one of those guys that if he retires he will be dead within a few months.
