The players with EPL title
Alex Ferguson talented players like David Beckham, Rio Ferdinand, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Cristiano Ronaldo, Roy Keane, Wayne Rooney got one separate chapter to describe how they quality assessed, the relationship between player and player or manager. All of them have a deep impression on the coach, do not miss the complete almost all the players who have joined the club given the comments by The Gaffer. Becks is highlighted because of the pursuit of popularity tends not like the boss (he prefer stay focus on football detail, keep low profile), CR7 is the best talent I have ever coached, Rio has the support due to avoid sanctions after a routine urine examination. In this book the author gives impression on the players that were recruited. There are praised and also criticized, as a manager is not always able to make a purchase or transfer with a high success rate. "Lean Times" chapter discuss thoroughly it 's hard managing big club such as Manchester United. Manager must thinking fast about club transfers. The decision to sign players can only be taken so soon. No one can estimate that the background checks of players still not 100% accurate fitting to be able to play in a way typical of MU.

About the media, SAF does not figure favored by news journalist. "The first priority is to never reveal the weakness of the team ... Won the game is more important, not look smart in a press conference. Do not embarrass yourself by giving a bad answer."

Fit referee, who able to run fast is the desire of the manager. Likewise with the players, full concentration and focus. It is unique, here SAF encourages players to get acquainted with the sport of chess. "What makes the difference in front of goal? Decision. We have always stressed this to the players.
