Manchester United fans were excited to hear that David Moyes would be taking over at Old Trafford on a six-year-contract, following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.

But, was the former Everton boss the right person to take charge of the reigning Premier League champions?

Moyes, 50, has been influential to the uprise of Everton, the club he served as manager for 10 years between 2002 and 2012, guiding them from a lower mid-table club to a Europa League outfit in the time he spent there as manager.

Even more impressive was the fact that he managed to create a club fit to play in Europe with very limited transfer funds. 

Moyes was able to recruit the right players that fit the Everton style of football and were influential to the club's success. These players included the likes of Mikel Arteta, Tim Cahill and Joleon Lescott.

However, Manchester United are a completely different club compared to Everton. Moyes has had no prior managerial experience when it comes to a side that aims to win every trophy they are eligible for. 

Up to his recent Community Shield victory against Wigan Athletic, Moyes has won no other trophies.

Also, his Community Shield victory is also arguable when it comes down to having won the trophy. To qualify for the Community Shield, a team must either win the Premier League or FA Cup and in some cases, be runners-up in the League.

Yet, Moyes was not managing the United squad that played 38 games to qualify for the Community Shield, he only managed the one match against a recently relegated club, which wasn't really a test of Moyes' potential to bring even more silverware to the Red Devils.

It seems as though the whole dispute on whether Moyes is fit for the United job will be answered, come the new season. 

Do you think David Moyes is capable of success at Old Trafford? Please leave your comments below...
