United had just finished second in the Premiership and won the League Cup. It was our most successful season since winning the title in 2003, and whilst still some way off our high expectations, at least we could finally believe we were getting there.

Alan Smith’s First Year Away – Did Fergie Ruin Him?

Rio Ferdinand is a player that I have taken several years to warm to, with the player’s change in attitude aiding my change in opinion.
