Happy New Year Sir Alex! - The Beginning Of The End?

Paul Smith by Paul Smith / 03 January 2010, 15:51

There come a time when we all look back and say that was the moment that it all unravelled for that person and today could just be that day for one of the most successful managers the English game has and probably will ever see. Today Man Utd got knocked out of the FA Cup by none other that Leeds United at Old Trafford.

There has to be little question that the squad of 2009/10 is just not up to previous seasons, as Sir Alex could easily have given some of his top players a rest and be sure that the remainder of his squad would do the business for him, this is clearly no longer the case. While they are still in there and hunting Chelsea down for the Premier League it is hard to see how this team can turn in the type of performances that they have done in the latter stages of the season as they have done for a decade now.

Man Utd take on their City rivals in the Carling Cup semi finals and this cup now takes on renewed importance as Sir Alex would be wise to get one cup in the bag as both the Premier League and Champions League may prove beyond them this season.

Sir Alex new he had a good one in Ronaldo and what about Tevez and he just does not have the ammunition in the bag to replace this type of talent. While his horses are doing better than his players at the moment with 'What A Friend' winning the Lexus Chase at Christmas, he just may need some friends come the end of the season!

So will 2010 be Sir Alex's last in charge at the Stadium of Dreams? who knows, but there are sure to be a few looking at the Next Man Utd Managers Job Betting in the coming days.
