Default who does Alex Ferguson owe a bigger debt to?

1. Lee Martin for saving him from the sack

2. Leslie Ash for getting Eric Cantona in the sack, and thus out of LUFC

do we need another Fergie thread?

btw, Bobby Charlton and other senior figures have always disputed the allegation that he was about to be sacked in 1990

Those within the club knew he was changing things around
Great example for the mindless chairmen and boards today who sack managers for fun
Even Martin Edwards deserves credit

and it was Mark Robins who got the really crucial goal in that comp

in fairness we don't really need another Fergie thread.

wouldn't put too much faith in what Bobby "sign the book pal" Charlton says in hindsight. he would have gotten the axe

Kudos to Mark Robins for saving them in the drawn game against Palace, his role in saving "Sir Alec" is Undeniable

I think they'd have won that match without Lee Martin, but they wouldn't have won that first title (or 1996, undoubtedly) without Cantona.

So Eric gets my vote.

As somebody else said, Mark Robbins was more important in the FA Cup campaign than Lee Martin.

I doubt it
Just like in 2005, when he was supposedly gonna get the chop, there were not many good candidates.......... ..

Not many people care more about United than Fergie
Although Bobby Charlton, who nearly died (and watched team-mates die) while on club duty, would be one of them....

the converse of this question is a lot more interesting

A lot of good players and good managers owe a lot to Fergie
(Cantona, Keane, Beckham, Ole, Scholes etc etc etc)

Even those who have parted while quite young have been schooled well by the United boss and are enjoying good careers
(Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, Andy Cole etc)

I'm delighted that all are unfliching in their respect for him

Even those who he had bad disputes with (Ince, Beckham, Stam) are full of respect for him

agreed, infact the original poll option was going to be "Lee Martin and Mark Robins" but i left it as Lee A. Martin on his own, (probably to be more obsure)
at least Mark robins had a career after MUFC.

p.s. the somebody else was Stevie G
