Should Manchester United sack David Moyes?

Published 1 Comments

With his struggle to get success with Manchester United as was customary under Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes has been under a great deal of scrutiny and has now fully lost the support of the fans.

A group of discontent fans have employed the services of an advertising airplane company to fly over Old Trafford for Saturday’s game against Aston Villa.

The message on the banner will read “Wrong One-Moyes Out”. This comes from string of humiliating losses to both tough opposition and teams that are considered to be a walk-over for Manchester United.

But the two questions that many Red Devils should ask themselves when they are pushing for Moyes to be sacked is, whether Moyes is a good enough coach or was the team already bound for failure?

In my view Moyes was never really a coach ready for a managing position at the then league champions. But before you start to bash Moyes, you have to bear in mind that Sir Alex had a terrible first season at the helm as well and that may be the reason for why he asked the supporters to stick with Moyes even when they went through rough times.

And, if continuity was the reason for why they brought him in then they should have had additional measures to secure his success at the team, like having Ferguson bringing in the additional players that were necessary to ensure another year of league success.

This is where you have to ask yourself whether you are a Manchester United fan or not, if Sir Alex had already seen this coming and maybe that’s why he really chose to retire.

If anyone cared to take notice of the Manchester United team last year then you would have seen that they weren’t spectacular but ridiculously average and the then acquisition of Robin van Persie, covered up their downfalls in midfield and defence from a weak pair of full-backs to ageing centre-back and midfield players.

So before you get so down on Moyes, and demand that he gets sacked, you should really ask who should really be blamed, Moyes, Sir Alex or both?
