The argument could have been put forward by Spurs supporters under Gerry Francis and Christian Gross; by Mags under Dalglsih and Gullit, by Everton fans under Royle, Kendall and Smith; by Villa supporters under Venglos, Little and Gregory; by Man City supporters under Reid (!!), Horton, Ball, Coppell, Neal, Clark and Royle; the list is very long. Just because Man U are the one side who have won things doesn't mean that sticking with your manager is the correct thing to do. Otherwise they would have stuck with Atkinson, or Sexton, or Docherty. They stuck with Fergie cos he was good, had won things and not just for the sake of it.
Reid looks a lot more like the managers I've listed above, than he does look like Fergie.
