In a book I read recently entitled When Footballers Were Skint, Frank O'Farrell has a very low opinion of Busby, I think it was a lot to do with interference when taking disciplinary measures against George Best.

I believe Matt Busby retained an office at Old Trafford until the day he died. Ferguson seemed happy to go along with it but prior to that I understand that BFR wasn't chuffed that Busby and Bobby Charlton held such influence with the United board.
