The Big Interview on... Fergie

As a born-and-bred Aberdonian, Sir Alex Ferguson had a huge influence on my life.

He revolutionised my hometown team in the 1980s through strategic management and sheer force of will. He made things seem possible. And it would be impossible to do a football podcast without talking about the legendary Scot.

The contributions from Jamie Carragher and Kevin Bridges reveal a different side of Fergie: his forensic memory, his humour, his deep love of the beautiful game. David Moyes and Gordon Strachan give an insight into the force of nature which was Ferguson in his younger days. To Strachan, the former Manchester United manager remains the best sports psychologist in the world.

Then, Darren Fletcher’ s testimony takes us into the dressing room on a matchday. If you want to know what a Fergie teamtalk is like, listen to the end.
