With the recent draw at Arsenal, it is quite obvious that United are currently in crisis. A string of bad performances has led the team to be knocked out of two major cup competitions in England as well as languishing in the mid-table of the Premier League, battling for the 4th position, which seems so out of reach at the moment.
With Ed Woodward declaring that there will be a massive transfer of players for this summer, I can't help but wonder if this is really necessary, given that the problem doesn't seem to come from the players, but rather the tactics and the manager himself.
United's loyal supporters would definitely back Moyes - only because those were Fergie's last words before leaving United. However, given that a change in team roster is needed, this will spell more problems for United as the current campaign was intentionally left as a 'special' season for Moyes to ease himself into a club as big as United. Unfortunately, looking at how well Everton are doing, many would be wondering if Moyes was holding the Toffees back during his tenure.
Now that defensive pair Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra are leaving, and the possibility of Robin van Persie as well, the falling apart of the mighty United seems imminent. United's reluctance to sack Moyes, and Moyes' insistence to not resign will only mean the end of the Red Devils era of dominance. With 5 years left on his contract, Moyes will have plenty of time to destroy the team.
None of United's wins this season seem convincing enough to support the fact that the club will be a serious title contender next season. Plus, with so many stars leaving, it is hard to imagine how Moyes will be able to bring back the glory days of United.
Hence, Moyes should leave at the end of the season. Man United could have brought Ronaldo back to United this season and the Red Devils would have still struggled as Moyes is never the man for the task. A good manager should be able to adapt quickly to a team and use what he has. Jose Mourinho and Manuel Pellegrini are the best examples of all.
In the end, if one still thinks that Moyes shouldn't leave, one should ask, what was the main criteria Ferguson used to elect Moyes as his successor? I have no answer to that question.
