Trust in Moyes Wavering?

The inference in the tabloid press is that the Manchester United board might be having second thoughts about keeping David Moyes in charge.

With it rumoured that the board are willing to free up 200 million in a transfer war-chest this summer, the indications are there that, perhaps, Moyes isn`t the man to be entrusted with such a huge sum.

Looking at the statistics of what has, quite frankly, been a rotten season, the following are very prominent statistics:

1 - The last time we finished outside the top six was way back in 1989/90, guess who won the title that season - Liverpool.

2 - The defeat, at Goodison Park, yesterday was the first time Everton have done the double over United since 1969/70, some 44 years ago.

3 - The 2-0 loss, yesterday, guarantees that Manchester United will not be playing Champions League football for the first time since the 1995/96 season.

4 - Under the leadership of David Moyes, United have only claimed 6 points out of a possible 36 against the top six sides this term.

Now can you see why there are rumours that the board might be reluctant to entrust Moyes with spending 200 million to reshape the squad?

It wouldn't surprise me if he's allowed to see out the season and then the club and Moyes will come to a 'mutual' agreement that he is to step down from the role as manager. That way the club can save face that it hasn't fallen into modern footballing hire and fire culture. I can't for the life of me imagine that Moyes poor performances as manager has gone unnoticed and I doubt the Glazers are all too pleased that he's been promising a rebuild, a particularly expensive rebuild especially after giving him 75 mil and getting very little back in return. I imagine the club did have genuine intentions to give him a 6 year reign and expected things to be more of a struggle than under Fergie but never to this extent.

Funny thing is at the same time I can also see the club just writing off this season and affording Moyes more time to continue the slump. No doubt they'll be wary of giving him a fortune after the fortune his been afforded thus far with very little notable return for the investment, they'll probably be more ruthless for it though and less happy to sit in the background and let Moyes run their asset, our club, into the ground.
As Famous has said it wouldn't really surprise anybody if the club did continue with Moyes especially if Fergie cannot except that he *****ed up. However it is increasingly obvious to everyone that Moyes was never, I'm not going to say good enough because he is a good manager, but he just isn't the right fit for the club whether that comes down to footballing philosophy or personality thats for others to decide.
