'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Perfect Summary!

As the dust settles on the end of the reign of David Moyes as the manager of Manchester United, there are numerous articles filling the sports pages.

Many try and dissect what went wrong, why Moyes was sacked, what happens next and what is needed to turn around the fortunes of the GIANT of the English game.

But one small quote caught my eye and perhaps offers the best explanation as to why it all went pear-shaped under the guidance of David Moyes.

It comes from somebody who knows, full well, what happens behind the scenes at Old Trafford, Rene Meulensteen, with Sir Alex Ferguson`s assistant (who left shortly after Moyes arrived) remarking,

"David probably underestimated the magnitude of the position."

"I tried to explain it would be like going from a yacht to a cruise liner."

"Alex Ferguson evolved over 26 years. He was good at stepping back and making sure the cruise liner stayed on course."


A perfect summary I`d conclude!

I think most of those papers and pundits have only touched the tip of the iceberg in a lot of there analysis. Meulensteen has summarised the general idea really quite nicely.
