    if they had to fire him , they should have done it in December itself . Tough I believe even SAF would have struggled , but would have been in top 4 . This is a ageing squad .

    Was just a matter of time really it's all about money and the Glazers weren't going to hand him £200m or whatever it is this summer he could have set them back decades, mores the pity! Personally I think they should have given him another season as Ferguson was actually in a worse position than Moyes is in now at this time frame on his start with UTD. Besides that disappointing as a Liverpool fan that it happened so soon :p

    Would be something is Fergiee does a come back, but overall we need a strong leader like Brandon Rogers, only the second season he's with them and look what he has done, now that guy has some balls :)

    Our Brendan's a hero and an Irish man too :D I doubt Fergie is coming back to be fair.

    *Update: David Moyes has been offered another job already! The Great Britain Tobogganing Team have said they have been looking for years for someone who can push a team downhill at that sort of speed.

    I agree, they're not buying any young players. What the fuck do people expect?

    Well I think united should give him sometimes to adapt. Some people says that Moyes have no managerial quality because he run the same squad as SAF who win the league title. But still, It was just his first season. Who knows he will improve just like Brendan Rogers at Liverpool this season.

    I don't think it was a good move, should have done it when all games are played but they still have games in hand or after 1 more season at least. Also they expected instant results which is not fair on Moyes because firstly it took Fergie some time before he could win some silverware for United, also the players aren't playing like how we know they usually play. Not all blame must be shifted on Moyes, as a United supporter i really hope next season is ours.

    Like I said it's all about the money this is big business, the Glazers are business people they sure as hell weren't going to let him loose with £200m this summer, public approval and most importantly their share price was down...

    24 hours after sacking him their share price rises to the highest its been in 11 months since the time Fergie stepped down lol

    as a Forest supporter im biased i dont think they gave him enough time
    i do think he made a big mistake removing the backbone of the backroom staff

    fergie trained van persie lightly and got a good season return, moyes did not
    train van persie the same way look what happened out half the season.

    summer buys where poor afro head is no united player and still yet to score
    mata hes class but yet to find his feet.

    defence is aging badly, rio well past his best vidic isnt the player he was
    evra still not half bad, but the team lacked good signings last year which didnt help

    add to that i think they just gave up, heads where down.
