After months of waiting finally a new era began at Old Trafford on July 1.

After years of success under the great Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United fans got to see their new man take control of their beloved club.

David Moyes arrived at Carrington early on the Monday morning to dozens of photographers waiting to capture the start of a new era at Manchester United.

MUTV - the club's in-house tv station - captured the first moments of the Moyes era with a video showing him arriving at the club and greeting the Carrington staff like old friends. 

Moyes' first decision as the manager of Manchester United was to appoint his trusted number two from Everton Steve Round as his new assistant manager and also his goalkeeper coach Chris Woods and long time friend and coach Jimmy Lumsden who will all be replacing the already departed Mike Phelan, Rene Meulensteen and Eric Steele.

Since Moyes has appointed Phil Neville as a first-team coach and Ryan Giggs as a player/coach which seems like a great idea if he wants to gain the players' trust quickly and show them that nothing much is going to change.

Transfer speculation is rife as it always is whenever Manchester United are involved but even more so now a new man is in control of the purse strings.

Thiago Alcantara has been heavily linked to be the first big name signing of the Moyes era. 

Other players to be linked are Everton full-back Leighton Baines and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Time will tell who comes in at Old Trafford and indeed who goes out as Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic, Nani and Anderson have all been linked with moves away from the club. 

One thing is for certain and that is nothing is ever dull when Manchester United are involved.
