Rory McIlroy and James Nesbitt hosted an evening with Alex Ferguson in Dublin's convention centre on Tuesday night, and Newstalk streamed the entire thing on 'Off The Ball' so that those who couldn't secure a ticket could listen along.

For those of you were watching Manchester United stroll past Bournemouth in a meaningless Premier League game, we thought we should draw your attention to one of our favourite moments of the night, when Fergie was asked about his much-celebrated role in the 2012 Ryder Cup comeback by Europe.

We've heard about it before, and how Ferguson used a story about geese that he had tried on his Manchester United players before, but it went down very well with the Dublin crowd and Rory McIlroy confirmed how much of an impact it had.

Complacency is a disease.

Like him or not, the man is an incredible leader.

It speaks volumes about his ability to capture the imagination of professional athletes that these golfers were hanging on his every word.
