Manchester United: Another bad Moyes decision


Yet another balls up

So, after approximately 6 months and just a handful of first team minutes to show for it, Wilfried Zaha is now playing for Cardiff. We think that this makes Cardiff games worth the entry fee alone. Zaha is going to be a superstar for the Welsh team.

He’s not only a frighteningly talented player but he also has a point to prove. After sitting on the bench for so long Zaha will be desperate to get some game time. When you are being overlooked, even for the less important games at Manchester United, you are going to get pretty peeved.

The most annoying thing for Zaha, during his first spell at Manchester United, must have been surveying what was ahead of him. Instead of ushering in a new era with a brilliant young star like Zaha, Moyes is instead picking the abject Ashley Young.

Young didn’t do the business in two years under Sir Alex yet Moyes still picks him ahead of Zaha. Where is the sense in that? Young was absolutely anonymous against Stoke – as he usually is in away games against half-decent opposition.

If we were running tings at Manchester United we would have got rid of Young, not Zaha. At 29 Young won’t improve and his best isn’t good enough. He’s a good athlete but lacks the guile or forward thrust to be a top player at a top club. Zaha meanwhile, already has much more to his game than Young and still has loads of room for improvement. He’s got the skill and pace to beat a man and an eye for the unpredictable, which would make him a star at Manchester United.

David Moyes is struggling for inspiration at Manchester United. His current team isn’t doing the business. And this makes it all the more bizarre that he didn’t give Zaha a proper run in the team while he was at the club.

Manchester United’s loss will be Cardiff’s gain this season. Just watch Zaha go.

    Moyes is not a good coach, he has sent out two players on loan this transfer window one on permanent bases and that is Tunicliff and Zaha till the ending of the season give them chance like Adnan then you will see Mercy upon hin for his poor coaching tactics. Actually Moyes has something very negative about Zaha.

    Undoubtedly, the present manager and his ex-Everton back room staff are the main contributors to MU misery this season. DM is incompetent and very snobbish to be at MU. Can’t even differentiate between good and dead logs. SACK him if he still doesn’t want to leave honorably.
