Man U

Mancheste United – Please Say It’s True

We’ve written recently that David Moyes might have dome just about done enough to stay at Manchester United beyond his first season.

That said, we’d still bring another man in, given the choice. Because the bar has dropped so far at Old Trafford that it’s frightening. And the excuse seems to be that it’s a transitional season after the first managerial change in a quarter of a century at Manchester United.

But Roberto Martinez hasn’t made the same excuses at Everton. He took over from a long serving a very successful manager but simply made the team better immediately. He took them on again.

Similarly, Chelsea have been going through a managerial transition, and may look to clear out all of their strikers in the summer. But Jose has still taken Chelsea into the semifinals of The Champions League and they remain firmly in the title hunt.

The fact is that Manchester United haven’t moved forward quickly enough, if at all, under David Moyes.

The Daily Mirror today reports that Jurgen Klopp is being lined up as a replacement if Moyes does get the sack this summer.

Manchester United will turn to Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp if they decide the gamble on David Moyes cannot go on.

As it emerged the Reds met Holland manager Louis Van Gaal for discussions last week, Moyes’ future as manager was thrown into fresh doubt.

But while Van Gaal would be a candidate, Mirror Sport understands it is Klopp who is the first choice of the Old Trafford hierarchy.

It may not be the most original story published this year but it should make very exciting reading from a Manchester United fan’s perspective.

Because Klopp is exactly the sort of visionary that Chelsea and Everton have and Manchester United need – he has superb tactical nous, knows how to get the best out of his lads and is the sort of eccentric inspiration that Manchester United desperately requires to truly take the baton from Sir Fergie.

We think they he would be a much better gamble than to continue with David Moyes’s slow burning and arguably confused revolution at Manchester United.

    I believe that the bell will toll for David Moyes after we get a belting from Everton at the weekend. Moyes has taken an aggressive, passionate and “in your face” team and turned them into a “submissive shall we, shan’t we, passive, rollover & scratch my tummy” group of also rans. You knew what you were getting with Sir Alex, a team with some stones to go out there and do the business. Moyes is not Man U!!! It’s not our style. He is more interested in not losing rather than actually winning. It’s over…. Well at least I hope it is. Come on Glazers, pay the money and fix this god awful problem, because if you leave it ’till next year we’re dead in the water. Football has moved on from when we allowed Sir Alex the time to fix it. There is too much money in the game now and results are demanded by owners as opposed to being a bi-product of the game. I just hope someone is listening……

      Well said, pal..
      Felt the same way.
      Just admit we made a mistake, move forward and fix it now..
      Be true to ourselves.
      Who we wanna be in the sidelines?
      A charismatic Klopp or a confused face of Moyes again in 2014-15 season?

    Mouse shud have been dumped along with his coaching clowns brought from the same dopey and useless stable! We have just one more window now to do just that. I widely not trust Moyes with any transfer kitty in the next window as he has no clue what to do with them. After a full season I still have no idea what his vision is other than moving united back at least 3 decades. Get rid of him now! #MoyesOutNow !
