Did you know Ferguson has resigned. At least the new manager has been chosen based on the philosophy of long term longevity rather than knee jerk quick fix solutions.

Next David Beckham will retire and we will never hear the last of it.

In fact as football is so intwined into society, perhaps all the ex footballers could create there own parliamentary party. Fergie as leader, Beckham in foreign office, Owen as chancellor they can’t do any worse than the Tories.
