@ajhumurray:KlassMyleene: Shooting something top secret and amazing today. *pinches self*” you're the new Man Utd manager?

@Okwonga: Sir Alex Ferguson and Johan Cruyff *must* be pundits together. They would be the Lemmon and Matthau of football

@tom_watson: In honour of Sir Alex Ferguson, I hope Ed gives David Cameron the hairdryer at the Queen's Speech debate today.

@MichaelRosenYes: Am a massive Alex Ferguson fan today. Go gettem, Alex. #gooner

@SeftGB: Everyone who hates Ferguson and is happy at his departure, doesn't appreciate football. #realTalk

@squ1dge: @charlesarthur funniest heard so far "1st Thatcher dies, then Ferguson retires. s/where there's a Scouser with a lamp and one wish left."
