To be the successor of one the greatest managers of all-time at one of the top clubs in the world is a huge task, but does David Moyes suit the bill?
His recent results with his new team have been mixed. Whist Moyes and Manchester United are flying in the Champions League with two wins and a draw, their performances in the Premier League have been poor for United's standards.
Currently positioned eighth in the league table and eight points behind current leaders Arsenal, their chances of retaining the title look very slim.
And whilst other teams such as Chelsea, Man City and Arsenal have made some huge summer signings, Moyes has only managed to sign Marouane Fellaini from Moyes' previous club Everton, and Fellaini has not shone like he has in previous seasons.
All this aside, Manchester United have had to start this season with some difficult games. With the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool in their first six games have not been easy.
Another talking point is Moyes' decision to put Japanese midfielder Shinji Kagawa on the bench rather than giving him a place in the starting XI.
Many United fans have been angry about this decision and why shouldn't they. Kagawa is one of the best players in this United team and for Moyes to put him on the bench over Portuguese winger Nani is ludicrous.
In my opinion I think that even after all this criticism, Moyes is the right manager for United.
Everton to Manchester United is a huge step for anyone to make, but I think the boss needs time and he can come good at the Theatre of Dreams.
