Over the last few weeks few publications have neglected to mention that, at any club other than Manchester United, the manager would have been sacked based on this performance.
It’s actually amazing that Moyes has lasted this long. There are two apparent reasons for that. Firstly The Glazers gave Moyes a long term contract and expected a transitional period. Secondly, and by for the more salient point, Sir Alex gave Moyes a ringing endorsement as the next Manchester United manager.
Forget racehorses and Irish tycoons, Sir Alex Ferguson always struck us as someone who would do what was best for Manchester United. Sure, he’s a proud man. But not so stubborn that he would let Manchester United suffer based on his ego.
Ferguson is currently keeping David Moyes in a job and, in so doing, harming Manchester United. If Fergie went to the board today and admitted that he and made a mistake with Moyes then the new boss would be gone by tomorrow – simple as that.
So, whilst semi-retired, Fergie still has the fate of the club in his hands. He has the power to make this nightmare go away by owning up to a bad punt. We feel that the time is right for Sir Alex to make his presence felt at Manchester United once more. Hold his hands up and facilitate the departure of David Moyes – a nice guy but someone who simply doesn’t have the tools to take Manchester United on.
If David Moyes is still at Manchester United based on Fergie’s reference then it’s time for the old master to stop the train before it crashes.
