Fergie, Fergie Buy This Tee

Sir Alex Ferguson recently celebrated 25 years in the hotseat at Manchester United. That is almost as long as I’ve been in existence. The media have been running features lauding his achievements and reviewing some of the highlights of his career.

Off the top of my head, here is a few of what I remember about the man,

  • Winning.
  • Fallout with his one time assistant, Brian Kidd, who is currently Man City’s assistant manager.
  • Paying crazy money (at that time) for Andy Cole which looks like an awful mistake at that time.
  • Paying even crazier money for Juan Sebastian Veron which is definitely an awful mistake.
  • The boot to Beckham’s beautiful head and their subsequent fallout.
  • His rivalry with Wenger and his livid response when Wenger said the immortal line, “Everyone thinks they have the prettiest wife at home”. Kaboomz!
  • Fallout with Jaap Stam and replaced him with 35 year old Laurent Blanc. *sound of title challenge crumbling*
  • His retirement u-turn and the disaster precluding that.
  • His subsequent mellowing, affording plenty of leeway in his treatment of the modern footballers like Ronaldo and Rooney.
  • His purple nose.

Trust me, it looks way purpler on screen. With this one outstanding physical trait, I thought it will be a good idea to do up a caricature of the man that everyone can identify with. Added with a subtle distressed effect and slapped on a t-shirt, this is what I came up with:

Sir Alex Ferguson tshirt

The t-shirt is now on sale at shirtyfooty.com. Available in men, women and children sizes, with a free choice of tshirt color. Spread the Fergie love y’all.
