The Old Hero

Alex Ferguson Statue at Old Trafford

Happy New Year 2014!

Reflecting on 2013, I wanted to highlight great things that Alex have done or has happened to Alex. The person that kept coming back to my mind is the one the statue was sculptured for in the photo above.

Here is the other Alex in Manchester that everyone knows: Alex Ferguson. He was the manager of the football club Manchester United for 27 years, and announced his retirement on 8 May 2013. I believe we all should agree that he has done a lot for the local community in Greater Manchester.

Happy New Year. Somehow when I click on your link at the Skywatch page, this site uploads empty of posts so I never get to comment, but I'm always clicking your link.
