We keep hearing that The Glazers want to give David Moyes time to rebuild the team in his image. Based on his first season at Manchester United, why on earth would they want to do that?
So far Moyes has spent around £65m on transfers – that’s more than Fergie ever did in such a short space of time – but you would never know. Because the new talent has been sucked into the vacuum created by the boss’s tactics.
It’s admirable to a point that Moyes hasn’t yet been sacked. But this is a performance industry – a results business. Moyes is getting neither the results or performances. If either were forthcoming then you could argue a case for Moyes as Manchester United manager.
If Manchester United were getting beaten but playing well then there is hope. If United were grinding out results without offering the typically beautiful spectacle of free flowing football then there is hope. But it’s hard to work out whether the performances or the results are poorer. Things are that bad at Manchester United right now. There is no hope.
So, for The Glazers to continue letting this guy run things makes no sense at all. Are they really going to let him spend the war chest when he has done so badly with his investments hitherto?
Loyalty is one thing. Blind faith is another. David Moyes simply isn’t cut out for this job. It’s plain for everyone to see. And the sooner Manchester United get rid of him, the sooner they can start to pick up the pieces.
