    OptaJoe: ' The only British team Manchester United have faced under Sir Alex Ferguson but never beaten was Southend United. '

    Anyway, on the subject of Moyes, I think it is not a bad potential appointment. I think with him in charge and SAF as a DOF, it could be a pretty smooth transistion. I think he is likely to be there long term and will do well at bring younger players to play at their top potential, he is also quite astute at signings. I am not sure how he'd fair in Europe tbh as he hasn't been tested and I am a little worried about his record against the top teams, however, our squad is not only better but also larger which will mean he is able to rotate which couldn't really happen at Everton due to their small squad size. In addition, I think Moyes and SAF relationship would be helpful in the further development and with Giggs/Scholes as potential coaches a great way to keep the methodology/ mentality in the younger players.

    Not the happiest with Moyes but hope he proves me wrong, honestly not expecting anything more than 2nd in the league next year.

    Give the man a chance. He hasn't even step foot in the place yet.

    I'm sure all fans will give him 100% support. We have a fantastic squad and I'm adamant we will continue to win trophies.

    One of the things Moyes is going to have to get used to is spending and spending big when necessary and force the Glazers to splash. Us United fans have been absolutely spoilt by Fergie down the years, and Fergie didn't have much patience, if he knew he needed to improve the squad and didn't see any option within he spent to improve, obviously not like Chelsea and City but he didn't wait for improvement like Arsene, the thing that worries me with Moyes is that a) big name foreign players may not find Man Utd very attractive anymore and b) well he is known to bring the best out of footballers on a low budget sounds a little bit like Wenger and the Glazers may use him to turn Man Utd into there gold mine. Basically does Moyes have that drive, fire to win trophies consistently to do what it takes because his career doesn't really show it.

    I would say the main question is whether he's got the tactical nous needed, but I guess you have to remember compared to the top managers he's squad is almost always inferior, against similar quality sides he always out performs them. League is too tight to guess positions. So long as he comes in and gets the team settled I'll be happy.

    Yeah I will, I just don't expect much in the first year at-least, I hope i'm proven wrong and will get behind him.

    I'm just a bit disappointed we are taking a risk on a kind of unknown when a club as big as United didn't really need to take that risk of taking someone unproven with a big team. I hope it pays off though and put my faith in that there is a plan.

    The bit in bold made me shudder, i hope we don't go through a phase of winning nothing for years

    On the point about transfers i think thatr Fergie could get money because the Glazers trusted him but with Fergie as a director he will still be able to persuade them to give Moyes money so im not worried about that

    I'd rather Fergie go of his will rather than bad health then the team is left in the lurch as we look for a replacement and then additionally we lose fergie's guidance

    Also apparently Fergie was gonna leave last season but the way in which we lost the title to Manchester City meant he had to stay and ensure that we were ahead of Manchester City by a fair margin which makes sense

    You look at the two best run big clubs in the PL they both have something in common. Stability counts for a lot. SAF is said to have had a large input into this, he must rate Moyes and he knows what the job entails. Every thing is unknown relative to SAF, the only appointment I think I would have considered is Jose and even then he has clear drawbacks. At the worse Moyes won't make it, but he's not going to trash the club and the team.

    Yeah it is going to be a big unknown either way, I just think a big name (Like Jose) who could walk in and not fear changing it up if that is what they felt suited what they were trying to do. I don't think whoever we appoint that they will be around for a decade or more, that period of football seems to have gone, maybe we will get lucky with Moyes in that regard but I think moving in on that basis isn't the smartest move. But who am I to talk, if that is what the board think is best then lets hope he gets given the finances and freedom to set himself up for August

    I don't think a manager can trash a club unless the board let them do so, they sign off on all purchases and sales. But I do see your points.

    Exactly, I just think Moyes should make 1 big name signing this summer to implant his foot as United manager, I don't think a ST like Falcao or Lewa will be brought considering Moyes will probably see our attack complete, and his biggest transfer at Everton was Fellani a holding midfielder and he was a CB so I think he'll look into buying a holding midfielder which will be good news, I think all the Ronaldo rumours will stop now as well, as Moyes has no connection with him and you would think he'd rather buy someone like Bale instead, though all of this is speculation and a lot of guess work, but the transfers he makes this summer could be vital to get the fans on his side or not.

    Anyone else still unsure about how to react after what's happened today? Should we be sad, scared, or excited? I've seen a mixture of all three emotions. The only universal emotion is the high praise for SAF. :adore:

    Totally agree with that, throughout the day, I have gone through a little bit of all three of them emotions. At least Saf will be a dof so will be still involved.

    Moyes at UTD is so refreshing. It's nice to see a team of UTD's stature go to him rather than the obvious choices. That said, I'm not sure he would have got it had Guardiola been available.

    IIRC Rooney apologised in 2010 by ringing Moyes for a passage in his autobiography.

    twitter reports coming in that Rooney has asked for talks on his future. If he ****s off, and we play Hernandez more often and get a solid centre mid, it's great.
