It's fair to say people would have offered a penny for Alex Ferguson's thoughts on many occasions since the beginning of last season and today marks the beginning of what could be interesting few weeks.
His autobiography will be re-released this month, he's in Dublin today and will no doubt have something to say about Roy Keane's new book and, as part of a new MUTV documentary, he has given his views on the new Van Gaal Manchester United.
Although he had apparently left a strong squad and everything was perfectly in place for David Moyes, fast forward 12 months and Fergie is backing LVG's decision to 'clear the decks' and build a new team.
Speaking in the the new programme 'Sir Alex: Life After Management'. Ferguson said:
Louis van Gaal has made a lot of changes and, thinking about that, actually maybe he’s doing the right thing, to clear the decks and build his own team.
Because he’s got the experience and coaching ability to do that. The way he’s approached it I think has been brilliant.
The show is due to air on Monday and I fear this might be the height of what he'll reveal in terms of the current state of United, given that he's probably saving all that for the new chapters in his updated autobiography.
Fergie is due to speak to 1,700 business leaders in Dublin today. Watch this space.
