Posts number 8 and 39 are the kind of strange posts that would make you think Man U had had an excellent season apart from this one defeat.

Don't worry, you have Swansea at home next. A banker if there ever was one. Then again, is there such a thing for United this season? :shutup:

It's a major transitional season. Sacking the manager would hardly increase stability.

absolutely not.
 
we'll strengthen in January and we'll finish in the top four.


Who do you think they will sign out of curiosity? Realistic targets only. The likes of Leighton baines would probably want to remain at a club that has a realistic chance of playing European football next season.

 

 

Baines would be over-priced anyway.

 

I could see us going in for Coentrão, excellent and would go for cheap I suspect. Koke is also another realistic target, although it'll hard to lure him away from Atletico in January I'd say. Both would improve our starting 11.

Coentrao and Koke are good players, but neither are that "Marquee signing".

No. After SAF's 26 year reign, this might be the most difficult job in football world. Moyes needs time to adapt and rebuild the team. They should give him at least 3 seasons.

Hopefully. I am afraid that if they can't even make top 4, there will be huge pressure from impatient fans and sponsors.

Of course the job is difficult, it's one of the biggest in world football which is why many questioned the sense behind giving it to someone like Moyes with no experience if being a winner. But even taking all that into account, there is no excuse for a team which won the league by double digits last season to not finish top 4 and his job will rightly be brought into question should that happen.

They should give him more time and i think they will.

 

I wonder though, if they ended up sacking him, who would they get? They will need a big name but i can't think of anyone who is available at the moment.

I have no doubt that had they picked some one like Mourinho, they would probably be doing better than what they are. 

 

Moyes showed his loyalty to his club and ability to rebuild his team over a long period at Everton, which none of the big names available did. By appointing Moyes and offering him a 6 year contract, United were sending out a message that they value long term stability more than short term success. Therefore, they shouldn’t and probably won’t start to question his job after only half a season.

If they'd picked Mourinho then they'd be challenging for the title this season. Short-term they'd be sorted.

 

Long-term is where the worry is, however. Moyes has been tasked with rebuilding a club in a very unique position, having been managed by the same man through numerous transitional periods over more than two decades. Whoever replaced Ferguson would struggle to do one of either galvanising the side and leading them to short-term success, or rebuilding for long-term stability. By prioritising one you'll automatically struggle to do the other, and because Moyes has been given six years in charge, it's pretty clear that he's viewed as a long-term manager. Had Mourinho or a similar manager come in then they'd be successful for now, but the problems they're currently experiencing would've been extrapolated further.

 

Simply put, he obviously deserves more time. I personally don't think he's the right man for United, but he has time on his side. He should have a much calmer summer this year, so we'll be able to gauge far better how he performs in the transfer market, for example. If he doesn't qualify for the CL this season and is struggling by this time next year though, then calls for his head would be understandable.

To be fair i doubt any manager would have gone in and done much


They won the league by nearly a dozen points last season. I don't think it's much to expect a title challenge.

So here is another one, moans like heck all the time about Manchester United and anything good people post about us, then the moment so much as a slip, albeit by the ref and not us, they are here gloating and seeking to appear all knowing.

 

So next time you want to moan, remember the times that you get a few times a year to gloat you are just as bad. :innocent06:

You are correct, its the responsibility of the members, so why aren't you putting some effort into setting the agenda ?

 

You wont like every thread on a forum with over 1000 topics a year in this section alone, in most people's cases 10% are of interest, 90% aren't.

 

All you seek to do is spoil a great deal of fun and hilarity and rival fans getting on greatly through the childish rivalries, If that isn't your cup of tea, why stop everyone else having fun ?

 

Go on, lets see you start a topic that we can comment on, make a contribution

I'm quite sure all "ABU"'s agree he shouldn't be sacked, and it being entirely the referee's fault and not his own fault is one more reason we are all in agreement :)

 

Its nice to all be on the same page.

No. After SAF's 26 year reign, this might be the most difficult job in football world. Moyes needs time to adapt and rebuild the team. They should give him at least 3 seasons.
