Thanks for the UEFA cup

Thanks for the FA Cup

Thanks for the League Cup

Thanks for the Second League Cup versus Man Utd, possibly one of the best finals I've seen in years, in ANY competition.

Thanks for the Super Cup and Charity Shield.

Thanks for all the trips to Cardiff.

Thanks for some great nights in Europe.

Thanks for beating the Mancs at Old Trafford 3 times, first manager to do so since Shanks.

Thanks for beating the Bitter Blues 4 times in a row at Woodison Park, a feat that may well never be repeated.

Thanks for working so hard to make Melwood what it is today, that will be your legacy to this club for decades to come.

Thanks for turning this club back into a club we could be proud of, rather than embarassed of, as it was in the days of the Spice Boys.

Thanks for your good humour, your great quotes, your constant suspicion of the press, which made for some entertaining press conferences.

Thanks for coming back when many a lesser man would have taken the easy road, and given it up.

Thanks for players like Sami, Hench, Gary Mac, Dude, Kirks, Le Tallec, Sinama-Pongolle, Finnan, Riise, Didi, Babbel, Baros, Kewell, players who where, or will become key components of this team for years to come.

Thanks for helping Stevie G become the man he is today.

Thanks for helping Spud become the Manc Killer, and helping Carra become one of the most valuable members of our team.

And most of all thanks for your dignity and class, something that put you above and beyond most people in football.
