Sir Alex Ferguson was a manager defined by his ability to manage change. Although he occupied the head role at the same club for 27 years, he effectively built and managed three separate teams: the side which won the 1992/93 Premier League title, the 1999 treble-winning squad, and the European Cup winning side from 2008. Indeed, Ferguson’s greatest quality was his ability to succeed, dismantle, rebuild and then – against all odds –succeed again. 

Now David Moyes, his successor, must manage the latest major transition at Old Trafford. This a United squad defined by uncertainty, with five of its most influential players in recent years having already left or thought to be set to leave the club by the end of the year: Paul Scholes retired at the end of last season, Ryan Giggs’ powers are fading, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra look likely to leave the club, whilst Nemanja Vidic’s agent has announced he may not be signing a new contract when his current deal runs out in the summer.  Read the full story

Follow Piers on Twitter

This is the peculiar story of a £15 million signing. A player who lit up the Championship last season and has twice been capped by England, but has made just three appearances for his new side as of January 2014. A known prodigious and rapid attacking threat, but whose continued lack of playing time at his new club continues to bemuse. What on earth is going on with Wilfried Zaha at Manchester United?

“Moyes! It’s All Your Fault!”


Follow Eddie on Twitter

If you use social media, namely Twitter, you probably would have found several “Moyes Out!” tweets after the Newcastle defeat. With United out of the title race, the pressure is starting to pile on United’s new manager.  Taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson is no small feat but how many United supporters expected Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world, to be in 9th place in December after winning the league at a canter?  Some supporters have already called for Moyes to be sacked. Others call for patience.  Does Moyes have what it takes to steady the ship?

David Moyes: The Tactician


Follow Eddie on Twitter

In our last piece on Moyes, we covered his playing career and how those same characteristics as a player carried through to his managerial days. We also highlighted a slight distinction between Sir Alex’s and David Moyes’ positions as players (striker and centre half respectively) which from a tactical point of view, may suggest Moyes has a different view for how Manchester United will set up in the future.
