Farewell to Fergie

Alex Ferguson's announcement that he will retire at the end of the season has been big news in China which, according to one survey (by Kantar two years ago), has 108 million Man Utd fans (8% of its total population). I mean, how do they know that? Even with their megabrand status and Premier League matches beamed across the country, I doubt that 108 million people really know who Man United are, let alone qualify as fans. 
Anyway, the boy done good. 26 years, 13 League titles (including this season's), leaving on a high. Respect. I guess David Moyes is the odds-on favourite to succeed him? So no pressure then...
