After 27 years in charge, Sir Alex Ferguson officially left his post at Manchester United last year and left some incredibly big shoes to fill at Old Trafford. David Moyes was the man who stepped into them, but after 10 months in charge he was shown the exit today after a dismal season. United currently sit in seventh place and won't be in the Champions League next season and probably won't be in the Europa League. But who is going to come in? My vote goes for Jose Mourinho.
Finally the inevitable has happened at Old Trafford. Manchester United have disposed of the services of David Moyes which will come as no surprise to any of us given the shambolic season the Red Devils have endured. However, the intrigue will come in the selection of his successor.
Everton will be looking to put Wednesday’s disappointing 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace behind them when they welcome Manchester United to Goodison Park this weekend. Despite the defeat to Palace the race for Champions League football is still very much alive for Roberto Martinez’s side, and they will be desperate for all 3 points on Sunday as they attempt to leapfrog Arsenal who currently sit in 4th place.
We [Manchester United] have our work cut out this evening. David Moyes leads the team out against Bayern Munich tonight looking for a spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League, and although everyone is expecting us to be beaten, I think we can get something out of the game. If I was Moyes, this is how I would set out the team.
Bayern Munich have already won the Bundesliga and are still unbeaten in the league. They are the reigning champions of Europe and everyone expects them to stroll through us this evening. Even a large majority of United fans. But I think we will win the game - here's why.
The supporters are the heart and soul of any club. Managers, players and even owners all come and go, but the fans of the club will always be there, paying their money and voicing their support. And although that gives them the right to show their frustrations, more often than not those in the stands will back their team.
Say what you want about David Moyes, but his comments following the Manchester City loss finally gave me a reason to stick up for him.
RUBBISH: Three Manchester United Players Who Should Be Dropped After Humiliating Manchester City Loss
Manchester United again lost at home last night, but this one had more of a meaningful consequence. Manchester City were the side who took the three points, and they did it in some style, winning 3-0. Here are three United players who should be dropped after their poor display last night.
David Moyes redeemed himself a little bit this week after Manchester United progressed into the final eight of the Champions League. However, all hope was killed when we drew Bayern Munich in the next round. Ignoring the European impossibilities United travel to West Ham tomorrow, and this is how I would line the team up in East London.
Although many had already written us off, Manchester United went on to beat Olympiakos 3-0 last night and progress into the final eight of the Champions League. We may be the weakest looking team left in the tournament, but there is no reason we cannot keep going in the competition and cause some shocks.
Tonight is the night. If Manchester United go out of the Champions League tonight then I think it will be the last straw for many supporters in terms of the David Moyes' tenure. We have looked awful for the majority of the season and sit sixth in the division, and if we lose to Olympiakos we can kiss the Champions League goodbye for next season. Here is how I would set the team up tonight.
