Is Moyes the Man?

Is Moyes the Man?

With it being common knowledge that Sir Alex Ferguson can`t go on forever and will retire one day, the name of his potential successor will continue to court speculation.

However, when it comes to a successor, the Sunday Express reckons Sir Alex is thought to favour the appointment of a fellow Scot, David Moyes.

Moyes, now 49, has commanded respect with all the work he has done at Goodison Pak and it would, no doubt, be interesting to see him given the chance at a really big club.

However, if the job is to be given to a foreign manager, then the paper infers that Sir Alex would prefer Jose Mourinho to be given the role as opposed to the much vaunted Pep Guardiola

Interesting!

Maybe one day but I doubt it'll be immediately after Fergie leaves. When Fergie leaves we need someone with a very strong and bold character who also likes to play football in the way the clubs current squad is set up to play. As such I highly doubt it's going to be Guardiola, class manager but only proven in one league with the best team arguably in football history not to mention the best footballer in football ever. We don't have the players to play tika-taka and as such I really can't see it being him. Personally I can't see past Mourinho, he wants to come back to English football and has had plenty of opportunities yet he has stayed in Spain which leads me to strongly believe he's waiting for Fergies position. Not sure whether he will be viewed as a long term solution as he's never built and rebuilt squads and his transfers don't really take into consideration the long-term vision of the club, examples being Chelsea and inter, (though this looks like its changing with some of his acquisitions at Real Madrid with all of Di Maria, Modric, Ozil , Khedira and Varane being brought at a decent price at a good age) but he can bear the burden of when Fergie initially leaves for a few years. From there we would have to looks at managers who suit the clubs philosophy and style as such, Klopp, Loew, Blanc or Moyes are all viable candidates.

I've often thought that's Moyes could be the next utd manager. Can't see the club going for Mourinho though he is a class manager but he has too much of a media circus revolving around him I can't see that sitting well with the club board.

Thing is who ever succeeds Fergie will be a target by the media, any hint of failure or inability to fulfill the high standards Fergie set and they'll get eaten alive by the media. So, whilst it might not be ideal to have mourinhos media circus I can't think of anyone with a bolder character to take them on and steady the ship after Fergie initially leaves.

Sorry, but after coming out immediately after the Stoke game and condemning Fellaini's head but, Moyes has proved himself too honest and classy to take over at old trafford. Don't think he banned a single member of the press for asking him about it either. Maybe you'd better stick with eye-gouger Mourinho, he'd fit in better.

Won't you lads need him when Mancini and Ballotelli take the double act on tour? Can't wait for the Morecambe and Wise style Christmas special.

City fans talking of class? Thought that holier-than-thou ship had sailed considering last weeks 'classy' showing.

Notice how we don't get on a high horse fcb because we know there's fan hooliganism in our fanbase whilst you seem to conveniently ignore yours and start taking a high ground?
