Can United really afford to sack Moyes just yet?

David Moyes; a good manager for Manchester United.

That's a very debatable discussion with many United fans at the moment. The vast majority are disgruntled after the start the Red Devils have to their season- the worst in 24 years in the Premier League.

Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement at the end of last season, with Moyes stepping up to the plate from Everton. But what has Moyes actually brought to Manchester United apart from embarrassment?

Well the answer is pretty much nothing.

The transfer window has come and gone, with the reputation of Manchester United in tatters after publicly having bids declined for a whole host of targets throughout the summer.

Other top teams all signed players, yet United fell behind and supporters were not impressed with the lack of new additions.

They did manage to bring in Fellaini, although they even paid more for him than they actually needed to. He was the only notable addition to the squad, and as such the team has been left behind by their nearest rivals.

Disappointing results have also been part of Manchester United's downfall, with the Red Devils losing three out of six matches so far in the Premier League.

All in all it's been a dismal start to the season, with Manchester United sitting in an unbelievable 12th place.

But boss David Moyes has not helped himself, with the manager saying his side were not good enough to win the Champions League whilst his controversial team line-ups have not helped in the Premier League.

Some would disagree, although it has been very controversial since Moyes joined the club. The Wayne Rooney tale started it all off, before Manchester United's ongoing transfer saga and now the sloppy Premier League results that have subsequently followed.

You get the feeling that none of this would have happened with Ferguson in charge.

In the Scot's reign all transfers were kept secret until completed and results nearly always came Manchester United's way.

I know what you are thinking, is this article going to be all about insulting Moyes? Well, no. Moyes needs time at Manchester United if he is going to be a success. 

And for that reason I believe he should not be sacked, well not yet anyway.

If United fans start ganging up on the already pressured manager then it will make things much worse for the teams confidence, and will not help overall.

The twitter hashtag '#MoyesOut' has flashed around in previous weeks and this will not help either. United may be struggling, but they need fans to support the team as much as possible now perhaps more than ever before.

If they do then United will be firing again in no time at all, of that there can be little doubt, after all no one has left from the squad that won the title at a stroll last year.
