Fergie to make history.

Sir Alex Ferguson is on course to become Manchester United’s longest serving manager in history by the end of this month.

When the Scot takes his team into battle against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on December 19, he will have eclipsed the previous record of 24 years, 1 month and 14 days set by Sir Matt Busby.

Ferguson has come a long way since his first match in charge of the Reds – a 2-0 defeat at Oxford United, and has since won 35 trophies with the Old Trafford giants.

“I never imagined I'd be here so long, particularly in the modern game.” Ferguson admitted, “I don't think it will happen again and I feel lucky to have been here all this time."

Giggs: youngsters must grow.

Ryan Giggs has challenged Manchester United’s Carling Cup flops to prove they can hit the big-time at Old Trafford.

A young Red’s side were rolled over by West Ham in Tuesday’s League Cup quarter final, with a number of performances from United’s youngsters well below par.

Jonny Evans, the da Silva twins and Bebe felt the brunt of criticisms, and Giggs - one of the only senior players in action - believes the United ‘wannabe’s’ need to toughen up if they are to succeed.

“Maybe heads can drop but you are at Manchester United and you need to rise above that.” said Giggs.

Lindegaard impresses.

New United ‘keeper Anders Lindegaard has been given a glittering appraisal by a member of one of the Reds title rivals.

Old Trafford legend Peter Schmeichel had initially raised concerns of about fellow Dane Lindegaard’s arrival from Norwegian outfit Aalesund, but Chelsea sporting director Frank Arnesen believes the Denmark international has the attributes to become a success in the Premier League.

<>“He has all the prerequisites,” said Arnesen. “He is physically imposing, he is quick and he's really good on the goal line. There are no deficiencies, so it's up to him if he really wants to succeed. It depends on his mental strength. No-one really knows how a player is going to adjust.”
