After a month in charge of the Premier league champions David Moyes has spoken publicly about how the Manchester United job is on a different level to his previous Everton experience.
Moyes was always going to have a difficult task trying to carry on the legacy of his predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson. The Utd board hired Moyes with the vision of making the smoothest transition from their previous Scottish manager.
Moyes was seen as a good fit after his decade of service at Everton, completely changing their fortunes in his time there, providing sustainability and a solid spot in the top half.
When Moyes thinks of his experiences at the Toffees, he is happy to admit that life at the Theatre of Dreams is on another level.
He told ' Inside United': "The transition from Everton to United has been difficult at times as I have hard decisions to make. Everton are a great club and I was proud to manage them.
"I can't deny Manchester United are on another level. Let's be honest, it would be a step up from just about any club in the world."
Moyes will enter the dugout this coming Sunday as Man Utd boss for his first competitive match against Wigan in the Community Shield at Wembley. This is Moyes' first chance of silverware in his new job and will want to take it with both hands.
Moyes has spoke of how he will be trying his utmost to make this his first trophy of many but also says this one comes from the work of Ferguson, winning the Premier league last season.
On the pursuit of major honours, Moyes added: "Of course I will be trying to make the Community Shield the first trophy of many, but if we win it's really something that will have been earned by Sir Alex. It's because of his good work in the Premier League last season that we're in the Community Shield.
"I will do my best to finish off the job, but it's Sir Alex who will deserve a lot of the credit if we're successful at Wembley. I cannot wait to get the season started.
"I know it won't always be easy, but I just hope we can all work together. My goal is to be successful and have a winning team. I hope that over the years we can have plenty of success."
Since arriving at Manchester United, Moyes has had a rocky pre season, results wise, but he has also allowed some young players to blossom, such as, Jesse Lingard, Wilfred Zaha and Adnan Januzaj.
He has gifted them the chance to make a name for themselves at United and I hope he continues to do so throughout the season.
Results in pre season rarely matter when it comes down to the start of the Premier League season, as the treble winning side of 98-99 showed, losing to Birmingham, Aberdeen and drawing with Valerenga in pre season.
In my opinion, Moyes needs to delve into the transfer market soon as the other teams around him have like Chelsea and Man City.
United have been linked with numerous big names like Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo as well as them tabling two bids for Cesc Fabregas, both rejected.
As Moyes and his board decide whether to make a third offer for the midfield maestro it may be worth checking out some different targets and making headway with them.
The United fans won't be settled until they see some action in the transfer market, that being said, it seems that the majority would like to see Rooney gone from the club but not being sold to a league rival.
With the possibility of a Rooney exit, the fans will want reinvestment and not a repeat of what happened with Ronaldo when Ferguson didn't reinvest the money brought in from Real Madrid.
At the end of the day, Man Utd are always going to have some tricks up their sleeves so I wouldn't worry if I was a Man Utd fan; the time to worry is if Moyes still hasn't brought anyone in come the first Premier league weekend.
