Morning Peeps,

Its important to realise that you're not in any way disrespecting Leeds by wishing Sir Alex all the best.

Personally I hate manchester united but we are talking about another human being; somebody with children and grandchildren.

In fact my day is around the same age as Sir Ale, and I'd be devestated if something happened to him.

Sir Alex get well soon.

manchester united - do one!

Deserves respect for that.

Apparently did similar for John Charles.

did you not feel any sympathy for The Don,and Billy cos i dont suppose you knew them personally no family deserves to be put through an emergency like that
The difference is to which extent one feels emotionally involved.
People suffer every day, millions I don`t know and who don`t deserve it,
does this concern me emotionally? If it did it would kill me.
I know this or that person I know by name suffers, does this have
a real impact on my feelings?
If not I`m nor prepared to wish someone a good recovery in a forum.
The news about A. Ferguson did`t irritate me in a way that I would have
felt the need to wish him all the best. It goes without saying though
that I don`t wish him any serious harm, and therefore that he recovers.
But that is nothing I feel the need to say or write, because I`m not
emotionally involved by him being ill. And wishing him getting better,
may suggest such. And that would be hypocrit in my eyes...just to follow some kind
of sozial ritual. (But then: I do react emotionally in some cases if a person
I didn`t know personally dies, as for example in regaard to the death of the climber
Ueli Steck. But that must`t necessarily imply that I write something about my feelings.)
Everyone is different I guess...

Probably I should have just held my mouth...well, I should have.

No need to worry Fred...your subsequent posts show that you didn't really mean any harm.
Most plagiarists, like the drone, have neither taste to select, industry to acquire, nor skill to improve, but impudently pilfer the honey ready prepared, from the hive......

Listen, it would be massively hypocritical of me if I didn't admit to saying some pretty horrible things about him over the years. I can't think of a manager I've disliked more However, this is purely in the context of footballing rivalry. As a human being, I have no problem with him and hope he makes a full recovery ASAP. I get the impression that he has a sneaking admiration for Leeds as a club and fair play to him for rushing back from a Euro game many years ago, ahead of the squad, to attend Billy's funeral.
Get well soon.
