Well it's confirmed. I'm kind of relieved to be honest but I feel a little sorry for him as a person especially at the way the speculation was handled but it's best for both parties.
Now the club need to have a top notch hiring process so we don't hire the wrong manager again.
They sure will hahaha
It's inevitable the club have refused to comment when asked will he be sacked which says it all it's in process just need to wait.
They can't announce it until the trading hours on the New York stock exchange are finished so that's 4:00 in New York.
A statement announcing his termination will be announced in the next 24 hours.
Every media source reported it at the same time. Lot's of reliable journos as well. But United officials just told Sky Sports his still United but a decision will be made in 24 hours so basically Moyes is a dead man walking otherwise they would have completely trumped the rumors.
hi, I know this is a strange way to introduce myself, but I'd like to know what you think about United this season.
My mini rant about our situation at United. Copy+paste:
There are many issues at United but this is one issue I feel like I need to articulate.
I have been saying how we will come to regret handing Rooney such a large contract. Don't get me wrong, he is a great player when he feels like it. But therein lies the problem. A captain of a club like Manchester United needs to set an example for his teammates. Look at the type of selfless, determined, brilliant captains we have had: Roy Keane, Steve Bruce, Bryan Robson, Bobby Charlton, and Gary Neville. Tenacity is a word that comes to mind.
We need a player who has that type of leadership to will the team to victory, to get into teammate's faces if they aren't playing hard enough. Someone who can be the secondary manager on the field. Someone who will play for the badge rather than the name on their back. Rooney is quite honestly none of these things. In modern football, it has to be said though, it is hard to find someone who will play for the badge. Money talks.
By giving such a large contract to Rooney, not to mention the armband and the freedom to roam around the field as he wishes, it is like saying "Here is the key to the city. You're the mayor now." I still admire Rooney as a player (will never forget the overhead bicycle kick against City), but he is simply not captain material. Captains are selfless, and the way Rooney plays is nothing like that. I was horrified every time he dropped back into Mata/Kagawa's space when we needed him to lead the line. In short, Rooney is good, but is he 300K/week good? I don't think so. He disappears too much for my liking.
Of course, we need an overhaul of players. I'm not saying the Rooney situation is what has culminated into such a shite situation, but it's definitely part of it.
To summarize, these are our problems:
1. Rooney situation
2. 3 of our best players (Kags, Mata, and Rooney) are vying for ONE spot in our XI.
3. Continuous tinkering with our XI (way too many lineup changes)
4. Tactical experiments. We have no team identity. Are we a counter attacking team? Are we a possession based team? What the hell are we?
5. Moyes. Doesn't seem to inspire confidence nor motivation in his players. Negative press conferences.
6. Of course, an aging midfield and defense. When we look around the league though, look at all the aging stars that have still come up big this year (Gerrard, Distin, Howard, etc.). It's about confidence and motivation.
Strong rumors growing Moyes will be getting the sack possibly before the season ends.
Whenever I feel bad about Barca's season, I stop and think about how United fans must feel. I am so incredibly sorry for you.
Is it official?
