The fervor in his visage while chewing gum captivated the minds of millions of Red Fanatics for more than two and half decades. People perceived and related to Sir Alex Ferguson’s enthusiasm and passion without him doing or saying anything at all. The teams performance and his sanguine persona were enough.
Recently his autobiography bought forward a lot of controversy,gnawing away at the legacy of this eternal legend. Each and every word was scrutinized and taken too seriously by everyone involved. The few polemical points could easily have been taken in the right spirit or ignored. Nonetheless, this controversy throws light on the volatile nature of words. Sir Alex is facing more criticism and backlash than when he was making decisions associated with one of the biggest Football clubs in the world.
The power of silence
Every expression of his was extolled when he kept his intentions to himself, and no sooner that he manifested his thoughts, he created more controversy than Miley Cyrus at the VMA’s. This can very well serve as a lesson in psychology. Words carry with them infinite energy, the can both create and destroy. When profession demanded him to chose his words carefully, he made himself into a demi god, but he faces opprobrium at his attempts of being a common expressive man.
“Hearts are broken with words unspoken,
This time words acted as needles, pinching people, the stitches on the fabric of sir alex’s legacy were unwoven.
Our universe appears to encourage reticence with the superfluous aspersions that the words, long due, produced,
Words seldom do justice, and that’s what this situation conduced.”
