Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has the potential to become the world's most expensive footballer, according to agent Mino Raiola, who has suggested the France international could move in the summer. The 21-year-old, who is one of the highest-rated youngsters in world football, has been linked with a number of clubs since his move to Turin two and a half years ago and most recently there has been strong reported interest from Chelsea, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and former club Manchester United. If any of these clubs were to move for him, though, they may find themselves needing to pay a record fee. "I have been in football long enough to say that I cannot foresee the future," Raiola told Sky Sports. "Today Paul Pogba is the most expensive player if he were on the market - that’s the risk, that’s normal; there are only a few clubs that can afford him. "Let’s say that I am aware of the interest that there is around Paul, obviously, and without naming them, everybody that knows a little bit about ...

Jorge Mendes has revealed that Arsenal’s inability to sign Cristiano Ronaldo was because of the club’s plans to build the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners were competing with Manchester United to land Ronaldo from Sporting in 2003, while earlier this season Arsene Wenger admitted his “biggest regret” was missing out on the Portugal international. In a new biography that will be released in English this year, titled ‘The Agent One’, Mendes concedes that Arsenal were very close to signing the three-time Ballon d'Or winner before a lack of financial power scuppered the deal. “There was a moment in which I really thought he was going to Arsenal,” said Mendes. “David Dein [Arsenal’s former vice-chairman] is a spectacular person but, with the construction of their stadium, they were left with very little money and it wasn’t possible.” Mendes also revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson’s desire to immediately use Ronaldo in United’s first team was the tipping point in negotiations. “The only ...

Alex Ferguson's predecessor and successor at Manchester United, Ron Atkinson and David Moyes, both served Cambridge United earlier in career
In May, Manchester United chief executive David Gill and manager Alex Ferguson both stated that Ronaldo would stay at the club,[161] while David Beckham said: "I believe he's at the right club now, a club he should stay at".[162] However, on 5 June, Sky Sports reported that Ronaldo had expressed an interest in moving to Real Madrid if they offered him the same amount of money the team had allegedly promised him earlier in the year.[163][164] Manchester United filed a tampering complaint with FIFA on 9 June over Madrid's alleged pursuit of Ronaldo, but FIFA declined to take any action.[165][166] In July, FIFA president Sepp Blatter claimed that Ronaldo should be allowed to leave, saying: "If the player wants to play somewhere else, then a solution should be found because if he stays in a club where he does not feel comfortable to play then it's not good for the player and for the club", and described the situation as "modern slavery",[167] comments Ronaldo agreed with.[168][169] The comments annoyed United ...
Alex Ferguson and his assistant Archie Knox arrived from Aberdeen on the day of Atkinson's dismissal,[40] and guided the club to an 11th-place finish in the league.[41] Despite a second-place finish in 1987–88, the club was back in 11th place the following season.[42] Reportedly on the verge of being dismissed, victory over Crystal Palace in the 1990 FA Cup Final replay (after a 3–3 draw) saved Ferguson's career.[43][44] The following season, Manchester United claimed its first Cup Winners' Cup title and competed in the 1991 UEFA Super Cup, beating European Cup holders Red Star Belgrade 1–0 in the final at Old Trafford. A second consecutive League Cup final appearance followed in 1992, in which the team beat Nottingham Forest 1–0 at Wembley.[39] In 1993, the club won its first league title since 1967, and a year later, for the first time since 1957, it won a second consecutive title – alongside the FA Cup – to complete the first "Double" in the club's history.[39] A white football player with ...

Founded as Newton Heath LYR Football Club in 1878, the club changed its name to Manchester United in 1902 and moved to Old Trafford in 1910. They are regarded as one of the most successful clubs in English football. Manchester United have won the most League titles (20) of any English club,[3] a joint record 11 FA Cups, four League Cups, and a record 20 FA Community Shields. The club has also won three European Cups, one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, one UEFA Super Cup, one Intercontinental Cup, and one FIFA Club World Cup. In 1998–99, the club won a continental treble of the Premier League, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League. The 1958 Munich air disaster claimed the lives of eight players. In 1968, under the management of Matt Busby, Manchester United was the first English Football Club to win the European Cup. Alex Ferguson won 28 major honours, and 38 in total, from November 1986 to May 2013,[4][5] when he announced his retirement after 26 years at the club.[6] On 19 May 2014, Louis Van Gaal was appoi ...

Ferguson was speaking as part of the BT Sport show 'Clare Balding meets' and described what made the strategy work against key rivals in the Premier League. Sir Alex was famous for employing the tactic from the sidelines, often gesticulating by pointing at his watch to supposedly influence the referees. He said: "Absolutely [other teams were frightened of it]. "That's why I used to go with my watch. But I never looked at my watch. Honestly.

MANCHESTER UNITED RIVALRIES!!! Manchester United has rivalries with Arsenal, Leeds United, Liverpool, and Manchester City, against whom they contest the Manchester derby. The rivalry with Liverpool is rooted in competition between the cities during the Industrial Revolution when Manchester was famous for its textile industry while Liverpool was a major port.[102] Manchester United and Liverpool are also the two most successful teams in England and, at many points in their history, they have battled each other for the league title (most recently in the 2008–09 season). Their matches are usually considered by the players and their fans as the biggest in any given season. The "Roses Rivalry" with Leeds stems from the Wars of the Roses, fought between the House of Lancaster and the House of York, with Manchester United representing Lancashire and Leeds representing Yorkshire. The rivalry with Arsenal arises from the numerous times the two teams, as well as managers Alex Ferguson and Arsène Wenger, have bat ...

A team picture from the 1990 FA Youth Cup semi-final against Spurs. Adrian Doherty was on the opposite wing to Ryan Giggs and for a while Alex Ferguson and his coaching staff thought he was actually the better player. Tony Park author of 'Sons of United' said: “One of the fastest wingers many people have ever seen, the United scouts said he could catch pigeons he was that quick.” Alex Ferguson was being urged by his back-room staff to play the boy from Belfast. Behind the scenes Doherty was tipped to make the kind of impact not seen since George Best. Tragically at the age of 16 Doherty never got the chance to play for Manchester United. A few days before he was supposed to make his debut his knee gave way in a reserve fixture against Carlisle: his cruciate ligaments. It took seven months to heal and in his comeback game the joint buckled again. This time he was out for more than a year. He returned again but after a handful of games it was clear he was not the same player. Past Northern Ireland youth ...
Inzaghi: I want to be the Ferguson of Milan Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi has targeted emulating the achievements of legendary Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson. Inzaghi, who enjoyed an 11-year spell as a player Milan, became the club's Head Coach in June, replacing his former team-mate Clarence Seedorf. The 41-year-old may have only been in charge for five months, but he is already setting his sights on the long term. Inzaghi has stated his ambition to match the longevity of Ferguson, who enjoyed a trophy-laden 27-year tenure at United before retiring in May 2013. "The last time the president was at Milanello, he said he would like me to be the coach for the next two decades," he told Corriere dello Sport. "Therefore I say that my dream is to become the [Alex] Ferguson of Milan, because this shirt has given me everything, this club understands me. "The President always wants to excel, he wants to win again, that's clear. They all want me to do well, and I know that they'll support me, even in difficu ...
Moyes takes over at Real Sociedad Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has agreed to take over as Head Coach of Real Sociedad until 30 June 2016, the La Liga club announced in a statement on Monday. Moyes, 51, replaces Jagoba Arrasate, who was sacked by the San Sebastian-based club on November 2 after a poor start to the season, the club said on their website (www.realsociedad.com). Moyes replaced the retiring Alex Ferguson at United on a six-year deal in May last year but left in April after less than a season. In 51 matches in charge at Old Trafford, the club won 27, drew nine and lost 15 in all competitions. Moyes made his reputation as a top-flight coach in his previous job at Everton, who finished in the top six in the Premier League four times under the Scot. They qualified for the Champions League in 2005 and reached the 2009 FA Cup Final, where they lost 2-1 to Chelsea after beating Manchester United in the semifinals. Sociedad are 15th in La Liga with nine points from 11 matches following ...

Van Gaal praises Man Utd spirit 27 October 2014 Updated 07:50 GMT Manager Louis Van Gaal praised Manchester United's "fighting spirit" after Robin Van Persie's injury-time goal earned a 1-1 Premier League draw against Chelsea. Van Persie's equaliser came after Daley Blind scored in the 87th minute to salvage a point at West Brom on Monday. "The most pleasing thing is we are believing in making a goal even when the scoreline is bad," Van Gaal said. "The players are running until the 90th minute to equalise or win." The Dutchman added: "Chelsea tried to kill the game but my boys ran and fought until the end and at the end we scored and deserved it." MOTD2 analysis Peter Schmeichel: "Manchester United and Chelsea have excellent young goalkeepers in David De Gea and Thibaut Courtois but, in front of them, things are very different. Courtois plays behind an incredibly well- organised defence. In contrast, United's back four is full of uncertainty and insecurity, something that was particularly evident at set-p ...

England: Manchester United - Chelsea Date: 26.10. Time: 17:00 Even though the team has quality, especially in attack, it is certain that their defense represents huge problems. It doesn’t have anything to do with the individual quality of the players, but overall functioning in the defensive lineup. However, it has been seventeen months since Alex Ferguson has left the team and they are still looking for a new identity, without having the same excellent material they had in previous years. Against Chelsea they are outsiders now and would surely benefit from a victory here, especially when talking about morale. They come from a 2:2 draw away from home against West Brom, being twice at the back and managing to bounce back in the game with equalizers. At Old Trafford they count three consecutive victories, while Di Maria (6/3) is set to play, despite problems he has. Midfielder Herrera (5/2) is also doubtful, same as midfielder Valencia and defender Evans. Striker Rooney (6/3) continues to be suspended ser ...

The Scotsman’s record is an uphill task for any manager to replicate on and off the field, based on his nursery skill set of developing young and well-established professionals. And in his 26 years at the helm of the most successful club in England, Sir Alex went through some bust-ups with some famous names on his roster but Roy Keane’s second autobiography has clearly exacerbated these fallouts.

Alex Ferguson reveals why Shinji Kagawa left Manchester United "MOYES" Sir Alex Ferguson believes his successor, David Moyes, caused Japan international Shinji Kagawa to leave Manchester United for Borussia Dortmund in the summer. Speaking to German newspaper Bild, the United legend said that Moyes’ decision to spend a club-record fee on Spanish playmaker Juan Mata in January effectively signalled the end of Kagawa’s brief spell at Old Trafford. "Shinji is back in the environment in which he feels right. And he has with [Jurgen] Klopp a coach who gives him the necessary self-confidence,” Ferguson commented. "I was very pleased with Shinji. He had settled in well with me, and I also had the feeling that he felt comfortable with us. " "Every coach has his own philosophy. As Moyes preferred the Spanish superstar Mata, Kagawa has felt that he is no longer first choice and was a bit resigned."
De Gea THOUGHT ABOUT QUITTING UNITED Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea admitted he considered quitting Old Trafford after a difficult initiation into the Premier League. De Gea was heavily scrutinised during his debut season with United, having arrived from Atletico Madrid as a £17.8million replacement for Edwin van der Sar in 2011. The Spaniard's physique and decision making were brought into question, while a dip in form saw him axed by Alex Ferguson in favour of understudy Anders Lindegaard. De Gea - winner of United's Player of the Year Award last term - has gone on to silence his critics and in a big way after singlehandedly denying Everton victory in a man-of-the-match display on Sunday. The 23-year-old stopped a first-half penalty before producing a stunning save to flick the ball over the crossbar in the final minute of injury time as United won 2-1. Looking back at his early struggles, De Gea conceded he was forced to think about a return to Spain, but feels he is better for the experien ...

He was such a genuine person who had a deep and rich love for the club that his father did so much to establish in the hearts of millions around the world. "Sandy understood better than almost anyone what the United way means and his enthusiasm, his wit and his affection for the club will be sorely missed.

MONEY PIT Put it this way. If they decide to fund Louis Van Gaal's messy attempts to tidy up the poor legacy left by Alex Ferguson, it won't be long before they understand very clearly how a big Football Club can turn into a huge money pit if they don't already. Angel Di Maria, on his own, has eaten into a big chunk of the Glazer family fortune and they know that it is not very long at all since Alex Ferguson was knocking out trophies on a bit of a shoestring. He was still spending money but while Real Madrid were lashing out mad amounts for Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and their latest bunch of Galacticos, Ferguson was buying Anderson, Chris Smalling, Valencia and Ashley Young. They are not bad players. Van Gaal is trying a system which requires the two wing-backs to be defenders, as well as wingers, but Valencia and Young have always been ...
Who is to blame for Manchester United's mess? Louis Van Gaal, Ed Woodward or Alex Ferguson? for
LONDON, Aug 16: Louis Van Gaal won’t be suffering a sleepless night as the new Manchester United manager awaits his Premier League bow in Saturday’s season opener against Swansea. Van Gaal will get his first taste of the English top-flight at Old Trafford, but the confident Dutchman insists he hasn’t felt any nerves at the start of one of the toughest challenges of his career. The 63-year-old has impressed in his first four weeks at the United helm, overseeing five wins and a draw in pre-season, but it is in the league that his achievements will be judged. Swansea were one of eight teams who came to Old Trafford and won during the dismal reign of his predecessor David Moyes last season, creating a sense of vulnerability that Van Gaal has been hired to banish for good. Last season United were noticeably short of the swagger they so often displayed when Alex Ferguson was in charge and ...
Manchester United's pre-season performances have been encouraging but rehabilitation under new manager Louis Van Gaal begins in earnest on Saturday when they kick off the new Premier League season at home to Swansea City. Dutchman Van Gaal, whose managerial haul includes league titles in the Netherlands, Spain and Germany, faces arguably his toughest task to date in restoring United quickly back to the top of English football's pecking order. United's 20th league title in Alex Ferguson's farewell season was followed by a slump to seventh - their worst showing in recent years as Ferguson's successor David Moyes found himself horribly out of his depth. The only way is up, it seems, under Van Gaal, though how fast and how high depends on him quickly implementing his own style on a squad that still looks thin on a quality in several areas despite 56 million pounds ($93.52 million) of spending. A home lunchtime clash with Swansea, starting their fourth season in the Premier League with long-serving defender Ga ...
Manchester United v Swansea City: Van Gaal set for Premier League bow 14 August 2014 17:46 For the second season in a row, Manchester United kick off their Premier League campaign against Swansea City and under a new manager. After 27 years with Alex Ferguson at the helm, the Old Trafford club dismissed successor David Moyes just 10 months into his contract as they careered towards a seventh-placed finish in the Premier League last term - their lowest in the competition's history. Ryan Giggs saw out the season in the United hot seat on an interim basis, but the onus now falls on former Netherlands coach Louis Van Gaal to lead the club out of what are - by their own exalted standards - dark times. And the experienced coach, who led his country to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Brazil earlier this year, has brought a new sense of optimism to the 20-time English champions.
It was always suggested that succeeding Alex Ferguson as Manchester United manager would be the hardest job in football and it proved to be the case for David Moyes at Old Trafford last season. But with the Scot being sacked after guiding United to seventh place, their lowest-ever Premier League finish, Louis Van Gaal has arguably landed the manager's job at the perfect time, with Moyes's failure making it almost impossible for the Dutchman to do any worse. Van Gaal has inherited a rebuilding job at United, but the early signs from the club's pre-season tour of the United States point to a much-improved atmosphere and sense of belief and the former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach appears already to have made the team competitive again. The intensity of the Premier League will quickly test United's progress under Van Gaal and tell the manager whether his new 3-4-1-2 formation will work in England. But players who appeared to have no future at United, such as Ashley Young, Darren Fletcher and Tom Cl ...

Dave Whelan and dealing Whelan on David MoyesDavid Moyes was the right man but with bad luck. Alex Ferguson had run a magical period of football but it does come to an end. Sir Alex is one of the most honest men you will ever meet. I think Moyes is a great manager but he got United at the wrong time. And I know Sir Alex could have interfered more to help Moyes or point things out. But he didn’t. He also wouldn’t have criticised and he will keep his peace. Every time I see Sir Alex him we have a glass of wine together. He is a good friend. I did actually think that Roberto Martinez should have got the Manchester United job and I did tell Sir Alex that. But I think Louis Van Gaal will do well because he’s ruthless. The club needs that and to be back playing football again. Whelan on the FA… The FA is badly run. I don’t get involved as they drive you barmy. There are too many amateur people in the FA, it is a purely amateur run organisation and they have run football in the country for a long, ...

Giggs: I'll learn from Louis Ryan Giggs has explained how he hopes to learn from working alongside Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United next season. The Reds' new assistant manager has called time on his playing career in order to embark on a new coaching role on a full-time basis and met with the Dutchman ahead of the World Cup to discuss his plans for the future. During the exclusive Ryan Giggs: Past, Present and Future interview for MUTV, Giggs admitted the incoming boss does remind him of Sir Alex Ferguson in some ways. "A little bit," he conceded. "Louis knows what he wants and he's got that tough side but, obviously, he's got a softer side as well. "I went together with Ed Woodward. We flew over and met Louis and he's a nice guy. He's got plenty of charisma and it was a good meeting. I went into it with an open mind. Then, once he'd offered me the assistant manager's job, I was already thinking about retiring but it just felt right." When asked if he would still have retired in any case, Giggs told M ...

The bold decisions by Lious Van Gaal, especially substituting a goalkeeper in the dying seconds of a game and bringing on Huntelaar for VanPersie ( the captain !) in another game, and having them make the ultimate change, has left me wondering what we as Manchester United should be braced for next season. Is he an Alex Ferguson reborn ? Most rival fans would not like such statements but he could be. I can smell a trophy-laden career for Van Gaal at ManUtd. I hope one of the Vidals, Kroos, Carvalho's, Vermaleans, Di Marias, Khediras always linked with Manutd ends up joining us. Manchester United has been, is and will remain the biggest team in World football

Stephen "Steve" McClaren (born 3 May 1961) is an English football manager and former player who is currently Head Coach at Derby County. His managerial career began at Middlesbrough in the Premier League, who won the League Cup in 2004 and were runners up in the 2006 UEFA Cup Final. McClaren then served as manager of England from August 2006 to December 2007. He was sacked after England failed to qualify for the 2008 European Championship.[1] In 2008, McClaren became manager of FC Twente, with whom he won the club's first Eredivisie championship in the 2009–10 season. He then worked as manager of VfL Wolfsburg in Germany between May 2010 and February 2011. After a short spell as manager of Nottingham Forest, he returned to Twente in January 2012. Despite his successes at Manchester United, where he had been assistant manager to Alex Ferguson from 1999 to 2001, and Middlesbrough, he was strongly criticised by the English media[2] following England's failure to qualify for Euro 2008. McClaren's time in ch ...
''At the highest level of football, a good coach is the difference between victory and defeat. If you don’t believe me look at what happened to Manchester United in the EPL (English Premier League) after the departure of Alex Ferguson. With virtually the same players, United went from winning the English Premier League to becoming an average team in a matter of months. The answer was to quickly get rid of coach David Moyes and replace him with world-class Louis Van Gaal.''.Keshi is not a world class coach.

A Message to Roy Hodgson prior to the Three Lions versus The Azzuri match at the 2014 FIFA World Cup: "Pirlo is the complete footballer. Give him time and space and he will destroy you, If surrounded he'll lay it off. If he's got room he's devastating. Even though England's EURO 2012 game against Italy finished 0-0, we paid nowhere near enough attention to him. Pirlo is not renowned for his athleticism, and he's 35 now, but that day he ran 11.58 kilometres, more than any England player. He also had more passes (131) than England's four starting midfielders. Roy Hodgson seems to have underestimated him in 2012, which surprised me given Alex Ferguson tactics previously to stifle Pirlo. We cannot make the mistakes of 2012 again." - says Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes.

Bob Goff News (You nose it's True) Van Gaal promises to end 13 months of hurt. 21-05-14 Louis Van Gaal has vowed to end the cup drought that has seen many fans desert Manchester United. The club was once a frequent renter of open top buses, but supporters now have to ask their parents what it was like back in April 2013 when it last secured a title. Fan Wayne Hayes said: “You watch old footage from two or three years ago and wonder whether things will ever be that good again. “I’ve never experienced what it’s like to win something since I started supporting them in December. “I know things were very different in his day but if Alex Ferguson could see what we’ve become now he’d turn in his grave.” Van Gaal has acknowledged the size of his task to rebuild a squad that contains just 25 of the players that helped win the league back in April 2013. He said: “People think I’m crazy but I think we can win the league next season, if Rafael, Jones, Evans, Smalling, Carrick, Nani, Young, Cleverl ...
1990-1999 The dawn of the 1990's saw Alex Ferguson collecting his first silverware as Manchester United manager, and Liverpool winning their last League Championship with an ageing team. The tide was turning… Fergie's first FA Cup, achieved after a replay against Crystal Palace, seemed at the time to be a stand-alone success, one that possibly saved his job after another poor season in the League. But nine years later, it seemed that Lee Martin's winning goal against Palace lit the fuse for an explosion of unprecedented success. First and foremost, winning the FA Cup in 1990 allowed United to make their return to European competition after an absence of five years. Far from being rusty, they went all the way to the final of the European Cup Winners Cup in Rotterdam where their opponents were Barcelona, the former club of United striker Mark Hughes. Two goals by Hughes sealed the match 2-1 in Fergie's favour in May 1991, 23 years after the club's previous triumph in Europe. The other long wait, for that ...
Now that current Netherlands coach, Louis Van Gaal, has been confirmed as the new Manchester United manager. The Dutchman faces a daunting task to restore the former Premier League champions to the top of the English and European game. According to Reuters, below are the 10 issues which should be at the top of his to-do list when he starts work at Carrington after the 2014 World Cup ends in Brazil on 13 July: 1. Win the dressing room: Unreserved faith and support from United's senior players will be imperative for Van Gaal to work in the right kind of atmosphere at Old Trafford, something his predecessor David Moyes apparently lacked. It will also help if he sees things eye-to-eye with his assistant Ryan Giggs, who should play a crucial role in bonding the dressing room with the iron-fisted Dutchman. A healthy relationship between the coach and the players is the basic prerequisite for United to restore the Alex Ferguson-era confidence that was so palpably shattered by poor results under Moyes. 2.

Daily Mail Interim Manchester United boss Ryan Giggs wants to land the job on a permanent basis and is hoping to make his case by leading the side to four successive victories to end the season.

Alex Ferguson feels that Ryan Giggs should be given the job of managing Manchester United on a permanent basis.
Alex Ferguson believes Ryan Giggs should take up the position of Manchester United on a fulltime basis following the sacking of David Moyes, according to a report on the Daily Telegraph website on Friday.
Manchester City scouts were in Lisbon on Thursday night checking on the progress of Andre Gomes, Oscar Cardozo and Stephan Lichtsteiner. Meanwhile, Manchester United scouts checked in on Paul Pogba and Ezequiel Garay at the Europa League clash between Benfica and Juventus. Arsene Wenger believes Manchester United should have given David Moyes more time in the job and believes the growing trend of sacking managers prematurely will damage the quality of coaching in English football. He also revealed on that contract talks have stalled with Bacary Sagna. Sir Alex Ferguson has broken his silence over David Moyes' sacking, admitting it was "upsetting" how it was handled. Jose Mourinho has ruled out the possibility of him succeeding David Moyes as the next manager of Manchester United.

Manchester Uniteds future is far from guaranteed to be successful. I believe Alex Ferguson recommended David Moyes as his successor because he recognised in him a lot of the character he himself possessed sadly his football philosophy was very different which is for me one of the main reasons for his failure! The vast majority of our players are ingrained with the SAF way of doing things and it is going to be hugely difficult to get this set of players to buy into any new managers system. There will obviously be big changes in the playing staff this in itself will take time to bed in and become successful. The only way to continue the legacy of Sir Alex would have been to promote from within but this itself is fraught with danger and in this day of stock market Manchester United not going to happen because of the likely effect on the share price by an untried unproven manager! Liverpool proved from the 70s to the early 90s that these sort of management changes can work but todays football is a very differ ...

(AFP) – Shares of Manchester United jumped six percent Tuesday after the struggling Premier League giant sacked manager David Moyes just 10 months into the job.

David Moyes The company announced Moyes’s departure ahead of the market opening, a much-anticipated move after the club’s poor showing this season. Moyes was recruited to replace legendary manager Alex Ferguson last year, inheriting a team that had romped to the Premier League title — United’s 20th English League crown — by 11 points. But under Moyes, 50, United have slumped to seventh place in the league table and been eliminated from both domestic cup competitions and the Champions League. The club’s owners announced that veteran midfi ...
Manchester United fans. Do you agree with Ron Atkinsons sacking?. Is Alex Ferguson the man to take you forward? .
I am a Manchester United fan who cannot just let the sacking of David Moyes go without comment. While I respect Sir Alex Ferguson 190%, news that he will be involved in the choosing of our new coach is disturbing. Sir Alex chose Moyes, urged us United fans to back him for a long-term, then stabbed him in the back after nine months. Why should be involved again? Sir Alex should have nothing to do with selection of our next United manager. His choice failed, and so, we are not ready to go through a poor phase like the one we experienced this season!

10 Leadership Lessons From Manchester United's Hiring And Firing Of David Moyes 11 comments, 11 called-out Comment Now Follow Comments 1. Don’t change the two most important people in the organisation at the same time Sir Alex Ferguson had been manager of Manchester United for 27 years and David Gill had racked up a decade as chief executive when the duo stepped down last summer. For manager and chief executive at a Football Club, read chief executive and chairman at a publicly listed company. Allowing both to leave at the same time is dangerous, particularly when their combined leadership has been so successful. Where was the succession planning that didn’t let that happen?

Alex Ferguson will again play a key role in finding the new Manchester United manager after David Moyes was sacked. Read more details here:
Sir Alex Ferguson was front and centre over the sacking of David Moyes at Manchester United. The Daily Mail says the former United boss was one of a group of directors who sealed his fate in a Manchester hotel on Sunday night. It is understood Sir Alex had developed doubts about his successor as long as two months ago, realising he had made a big mistake. Ferguson, along with Woodward, former chief executive David Gill and United legend Sir Bobby Charlton, decided on Sunday night to get rid of Moyes before the end of the season, as had initially been planned.
Is shocked how Manchester United allowed the Press to spread rumours of Moyes being sacked before an offical statement this would never have happened with Sir Alex Ferguson in charge. This does goes to show the *** that are now running the club AKA THE GLAZER FAMILY. United do things differently they not the type of club that fires managers at the first sign of trouble. I hate what is happening to a once well runned club, in order for Manchester United to move on they need to get new Owners who will give Managers time to stamp their own authority and owners who Actually No About Football. I Now Understand how Rovers fans have felt having the idiotic Venkys in charge. Hope United don't end up like Leeds
Sir Alex Ferguson words on Ryan Giggs as a manager- Sir Alex Ferguson said: “Ryan could definitely be a manager because he’s so wise and players invariably respect him. “His relative quietness would not be a barrier. The are plenty of non-vocal managers. But your character must be strong. “To deal with a club like Manchester United, your personality has to be bigger than those of the players. Or, you have to believe it is, to control the whole picture. You have big players, wealthy players, world-famous players, and you have to rule over them, stay on top of them. “There is only one boss of Manchester United, and that’s the manager. Ryan would need to cultivate that side of himself. But so did I, from 32 years of age.” WHAT A RUSH!

Sir Alex Ferguson needs to apologise to Manchester United fans, and to David Moyes, for the way in which the transitional period at Old Trafford was handled.
When Sir Alex Ferguson finally decided to end his illustrious reign at Manchester United, many expected him to hire a strong manager. It was expected that he would choose somebody with a proven track record at the highest level, someone like Jose Mourinho or even Carlo Ancelotti. However Manchester United, on Fergie's recommendation, opted for stability and went with David Moyes. The question is: Was Ferguson's recommendation a set up on Moyes? My theory is that Fergie conveniently chose a coach who would fail so that he may maintain his 'cult hero' status at Old Trafford for a few more years. Yes, it is true that a team like Manchester United needed a manager that would provide long- term stability. A coach like Mourinho is not that type of a manager. There are many managers in Europe who could have brought both stability and results at Old Trafford. The likes of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp are just two examples, but Ferge went for Moyes and my only logical conclusion is that it was not for United but ...

Manchester United blunders again! Why should they fire David Moyo with only 4 games to go when the man had clearly failed from the day he was appointed, thanks to Fergie. It makes sense if those in charge at Old Trafford had waited till the end of the season to appoint a new coach. Red Devils, you dreaming of Europa and you believe Giggs is the right person to help you finish in position 6 in the final standings this season? You are clowns! Man U supporters strongly endorsed the "Chosen One" at the beginning of the season and now he is a rotten apple, why? After all he was appointed by your deity Alex Ferguson and you waxed lyrical about his appointment. Let's see how long Giggs will remain flavour of the month at the Theatre of Farce.

Sir Alex Ferguson 'must take share of blame' at Manchester United , says BBC Sport's Phil Mcnulty. 'His endorsement of Moyes, a manager he saw in his own younger image and likeness, has proved to be a flawed one.' Do you agree with him?
...Ok, so Moyes has been sacked from Manchester United, and whilst I can see the reasons why, I, like Gary Neville thought he would be given time. The results haven't been good this season for a team whose fans have grown up 'expecting' success and have been spoilt under the reign of sir Alex. But lets remember, Alex Ferguson was only a few games away from the sack after 4 trophy less years at Old Trafford before winning the cup winners cup. His team were hammered a few times by the upcoming Man City side, home and away. The team Moyes inherited, albeit they won the league last year, has several ageing players, and some who clearly need to leave as just not arsed aslong as getting a wage. He has also been without Van Persie for much of the season. I think if he hadnt 'lost' the dressing room, he would have stayed longer, but the rebuilding has to begin, now. Time to clear out nani, valencia, smalling, cleverley, and let giggs, ferdinand and evra retire in peace. I feel sorry for Moyes, because he is a dec ...

I do feel rather disheartened by supporters of teams who willingly buy into hiring a plane to make their feelings clear: get rid of the manager as we do not like him. Why am I disheartened? It takes time to mould a team, to bring up young players, to influence players based on your own unique long term vision and so on. How long did it take Alex Ferguson to do that at Manchester United?

Fergie has been accused of leaving United in a poor state for his successor David Moyes who has endured a torrid first year in charge. Chelsea boss Mourinho said: "Lots of people are speaking about Sir Alex. "He had the career he had. Years and years and years. He made United what United is. "He decided to retire. When someone retires, especially a person like him, he deserves to retire and enjoy his life. "Now he's responsible for what? For what? United lose a match it's his responsibility? "United struggling in the Premier League it's his problem? "Rooney misses a goal, or De Gea makes a mistake and it's his fault? "He can only be blamed for one thing: United are the club they are. He's retired. Let him retire in peace." Mourinho reckons there is still time left for Moyes to prove he was the right man to replace Fergie. Mourinho added: "And if he wins the Champions League this season? Can he? Of course ...
For all the Fans of Manchester United who don't seem to think we had any kind of history before the Premiership, and the amazingly lucky run we had, In Alex Ferguson's first year in charge we finished 11th in the league, he then improved to 2nd in the league the next year, the third year we again finished 11th, then 13th, then 6th, then 2nd until we finally won the league in the 1992-1993 season, Alex Ferguson was appointed in 1986 and so all these *** who don't want to stand by David Moyes, should consider that if we had that same attitude in 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990 etc, then we would have lost the most successful manager of the modern Premiership Era, Think About it for a second and try actually supporting your club for once. If you can't do that then feel free to Chase trophies and support someone else and be a Glory Hunter! I Support Manchester United through thick and thin, not just the good times.

Ferguson admits a good few Manchester United players need to be sold By Sam Peoples at 5:00 am 27/03/2014 Next Article Irish jockey Ruby Walsh has revealed Sir Alex Ferguson admitted that a ‘good few’ Manchester United players have to be sold in the summer when the pair met at Cheltenham Festival. Ferguson’s admission came prior to the defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City but still after the worst season to date in Manchester United‘s Premier League history. “I met Alex Ferguson in the changing room on the Friday at Cheltenham before racing and I asked him what was going on and he was telling me about buying this fella and he bought the wrong fella and I said to him that I told you five years ago you had to sell Nani and you wouldn’t,” he said. “A lot of the players are the players he inherited from you and he said ‘Yeah, a good few of them have to go but it all depends on what shopping he does in the summer’. “To be fair to David Moyes, who wanted the job from Alex Ferguson ...
Things MANCHESTER UNITED funs shud kno:- Alex Ferguson is all to blame for what is happening to the bug Manchester club. He handled over wrongly at the wrong time. Manchester United were already going down before Ferguson retired from Football. The fact that they won the league in his final season does not mean he had a gud team. Remember that previously they exited the UEFA Champions League in the second round and followed another first round exit at the hands of FC Basel. He only improved his side the season that followed by buying Van Persie, who wasn't really what they needed especially when Rooney was already performing in big matches. The same season saw the collapse of Chelsea and Man City partially which deceived united fans more. United fans shud have looked at how Frank Rijkaard left Barcelona when he handed it to former drag dealer Josep Guardiola. And also admire how stable Barcelona wqs when Guardiola left it. How about Jupp Heynckes' Bayern Munich when Guardiola took charge or Carlo Ancelot ...
Woke up today to news that Manchester United fans abused Alex Ferguson during last night's game. Music to my ears. Today is going to be a GREAT day :)
Edin Dzeko scored twice as Manchester City heaped more misery on Manchester United with a 3-0 victory on Tuesday to move to within three points of Premier League leaders Chelsea with two games in hand. Dzeko needed just 43 seconds to give City the lead in a Manchester derby at United's Old Trafford ground. Rafael's last-ditch tackle blocked David Silva's run into the box but Samir Nasri hit the post and Dzeko followed up to sidefoot in the rebound. The Bosnian striker was on target again in the 56th minute when he dropped marker Rio Ferdinand to volley in Nasri's corner, Yaya Toure rubbed salt into United's wounds with a third goal in the 90th minute as Manuel Pellegrini's men, now second in the table, completed a derby double following a 4-1 win over United at Eastlands in September. It was yet another night to forget for United boss David Moyes, in his first season in charge of the fading English champions following the retirement of Alex Ferguson, British football's most successful manager.

LFC pick up award for Old Trafford display Liverpool's outstanding 3-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday has been selected as the Performance of the Week by the League Managers Association's five-man panel. A Steven Gerrard double from the penalty spot and a late Luis Suarez strike ensured the Reds departed Old Trafford victorious for the first time in five years and reclaimed second place in the division. The display has been acknowledged by the LMA panel, which is comprised of chairman Howard Wilkinson, former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry. This is the third time in 2013-14 that Liverpool have claimed the award and Reds boss Brendan Rodgers will receive a specially engraved crystal football to mark the achievement.

The only time Sir Alex Ferguson has shown delight over Manchester United's win
Ryan Giggs rolled back the years with a vintage performance to help beat Olympiakos Robin Van Persie was the hat-trick hero as Manchester United turned around a two-goal first leg deficit to beat Olympiakos 3-0 at Old Trafford and progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. However, it was the performance of Ryan Giggs that left Adam Bate in awe... 21 Sky Bet ... Up To £30 Free Matched Bet “It’s a time to show guts and courage,” said Gary Neville in the Sky Sports studio upon seeing the swelling over Antonio Valencia’s left eye. It was an admirable if disconcerting effort for the Manchester United winger to play on for so long – almost to the 77 minute mark – after suffering a serious blow to the head in the early stages. But there’s more than one type of bravery in football. And Ryan Giggs showed plenty of the kind that really counted on Wednesday evening at Old Trafford. David Moyes’ United have wilted under pressure at various times this season. The late heroics of the Sir ...
Robin Van Persie's hat-trick lifted the gloom surrounding Manchester United and manager David Moyes as the English side beat Olympiakos Piraeus 3-0 to overturn a 2-0 first-leg deficit and reach the Champions League quarterfinals on Wednesday. United, mounting a dismal defence of their Premier League title in Moyes's first campaign since replacing Alex Ferguson, kept alive their last remaining hope of lifting a trophy this season. Asked to show character by their manager, United responded with Van Persie showing a clinical edge that has been missing of late while the recalled Ryan Giggs was also instrumental on his first start since late January. Van Persie began the Old Trafford comeback with a 25th-minute penalty, awarded after he had been shoved in the back by Jose Holebas. The Dutchman levelled the tie on aggregate in first- half stoppage time, steering in Wayne Rooney's cross and Van Persie completed his hat-trick with a free kick six minutes after the break that left Olympiakos keeper Roberto rooted ...
Manchester United Vs Olympiakos (UCL) | NTA Sports 24 | CH 628 | 19-3-14 by 8:45PM If Manchester United was under the hands of Sir Alex Ferguson, everyone would predict an easy win against Greek club Olympiakos in the Round of 16 of the Champions League. But the situation is different and grim too. Manchester United is being managed by new manager David Moyes who has struggled to find consistency. Their season has been dreadful.

ON MOYESUNITED (FOR MOYES UTD FANS BRAH) - BY Kanbei311 from /r/reddevils That was Everton's ceiling because their budget was significantly less than anyone above them. Currently, the big spending teams in the Premier League are Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United. That's the top six places occupied. Unless one of them has an atypical drop in form (i.e. Us and Tottenham this season or Liverpool for the last few seasons) 7th is about as good as it's going to get for Everton. In essence, Moyes took Everton as far as they are going to go. They might have the odd Champions League spot in the next few years or even an occasional trophy, but let's be realistic, they won't be able to do that on a consistent basis unless they're picked up by the next Alex Ferguson or a Middle-Eastern oligarch. Nobody on Everton's budget has won a trophy in the modern era without a significant slice of luck on their side. That's why I get irritated by the "hasn't won a trophy" argument. Ar ...
If we're to be believe certain stories, a goal scored by Mark Robins in 1990 may well have changed the course of football history. Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson was under pressure at the time, having failed to win a trophy since being appointed at OId Trafford in 1986. But this third-round goal at Nottingham Forest gave United a win that put them on the way to FA Cup glory. It was the first of many trophies for Ferguson. WILL this magic moment happen to Moyes this Thursday and pave a way for him to win the prestigious UCL? Stranger things have happened but I am not holding my breath. Much have been said about the pre trophy era of SAF, the so called dark days, how SAF need 4 season to win his first trophy; what rarely been mentioned is the commitment and attitude of Man Utd players during this time. Personally, I can never forget Viv Anderson, a natural right back forced to play CB [because of injuries] against a very physical Wimbledon side; even though they lost, I was satisfied and proud o .. ...

Three reasons why Manchester United can beat Liverpool By Eurosport | Pitchside Europe – 22 hours ago Email Share60 Liverpool have all the form going into this Sunday's clash at Old Trafford, but our friends at Squawka believe Manchester United can get the points. 1. Liverpool’s Defence Is Far From Perfect In attack the Reds have been excellent and with 73 goals they are the Premier League’s top scorers but they have needed to score a large amount of goals due to the fact they only have the joint sixth best defence. With 35 goals conceded, the same amount as Southampton, West Ham United and Hull City, Liverpool have a worse defensive record than Manchester United, who have conceded 31 goals. This is in part due to poor overall performances in tackles and headed duels. Over the course of the season Liverpool have won just 48% of the 974 tackles attempted and 49% of the 841 headers challenged for. Jose Enrique is definitely out of the clash and if Lucas Leiva and Mamadou Sakho do not recover in time i ...
Old but Gold Commentator: ''3 added minutes, Neville's long throw, headed by Kuffour. David Beckham, Now Garry Neville, cross deflected and ball out for a corner. Can Manchester United score, they always score. Peter Schmeichel is forward, can he score...he's got one in Europe already. Beckham, in towards Schmeichel, it's come to Dwight Yorke. Great, Giggs with the shot, SHERRINGHAM! Name on the trophy. Teddy Sherringham, with 30 seconds of added time played, has equalised for Manchester United. They are still in the European Cup.'' Commentator: ''As it stands, we will go into the extra time with the golden goal, hanging like a massive shadow over this final. Unless Ole Solkjaer can conjure up another. They have to feel, this is their year. Is this their moment? Beckham, into Sherringham and Solkjaer has won it.! Manchester United have reached the promise land. Ole Solkjaer, the two substitutes have scored the two goals in stoppage time and the treble looms large.!!! ''Now, is that it, or is there somethi ...
ROBIN Van Persie is uncertain whether to remain at Manchester United and will consider his future in the summer. It is understood that the Dutchman has no release clause in a contract that will have two years left in July and the champions would resist any attempt by the player to leave. The manner in which United resisted Wayne Rooney's desire to move to Chelsea last summer when he had become disgruntled with life at Old Trafford is now considered the default stance at the club when seeking to retain top line players. The approach with Rooney has proved a success, with the England striker committing fully to David Moyes' team. Last week he signed a five-and-a-half-year deal that keeps him at United until he is 33. Following United's dismal 2-0 Champions League defeat at Oympiakos on Tuesday, Van Persie signalled his disquiet by complaining that his team-mates were taking up positions he wanted to occupy. Although the striker was careful to defend Moyes, his frustration with his fellow players was also an ...
Here's a reply from an ardent Man United fan, ST sports journalist Sanjay Nair: Dear Boss, Thank you for taking the time out of scouring Europe for unsuspecting young talent to write to us - the depressed, disillusioned and divided Manchester United fan. While we knew this would be a challenging job, we expected you to do more challenging - for trophies that is. Community Shield doesn't count, although it is still bigger than anything you've won as a manager. Instead, we're out of the title race by March - a time when we're used to wondering how many trophies we'd win and not if we can make Europe. Yet, I must admit your letter was a nice touch. Your compliments of our "unwavering faith" and "magnificent" loyalty make us blush - almost in the same shade of pink as your players whenever they take to the field with you. Pardon my bluntness but, Great Scot, what have you done to Alex Ferguson's team? How you have escaped scot-free so far is perhaps your crowning achievement this season. We are not even worth ...

David Moyes is facing a fight to prove he is the man to lead Manchester United following the latest setback in their crisis-hit season. While Moyes retains the backing of the board for now, it is understood there HAS been a mood shift in the corridors of power following the 2-0 Champions League defeat to Olympiakos on Tuesday. The Scot, who succeeded the legendary Alex Ferguson last summer, has already lost the support of a significant core of the champions' fans and there is a fear within the club that their turbulent season could go from bad to worse over the coming weeks. United face three key home games in nine days next month - against arch-rivals Liverpool, the decider against Olympiakos and title-chasing neighbours Manchester City - that could go a long way to deciding Moyes' future. Defeat to Liverpool would signal the end of United's bid for a top-four finish, while an exit from the Champions League at the hands of the Greeks is looming large ahead of the return leg at Old Trafford. Senior figure ...

More Moyes misery as United is held by Fulham LONDON (AP) — So often the beneficiary of late goals under Alex Ferguson, it seems everything is being turned on its head at Manchester United under David Moyes after his team's latest stumble in the Premier League. Deep into stoppage time at Old Trafford, Darren Bent plundered a goal in "Fergie Time" for Fulham to claim a 2-2 draw for the league's worst team on Sunday. And a miserable first season for Moyes just keeps on getting worse, with the champions adrift in seventh, after winning the title by 11 points under Ferguson in May. "Today was probably as bad as it gets," Moyes said. But next up on Wednesday is a trip to Arsenal, which might have lost 5-1 at Liverpool on Saturday but is second in the standings. Bent's intervention leaves United nine points adrift of the fourth Champions League qualification place, let alone the summit where Chelsea is 15 points ahead. Even more agonizing for Moyes is that his team had turned the match around to be in a winni ...
Bent denies United, Spurs sink Everton 09 February 2014, 20:06 An injury-time goal from Fulham's Darren Bent inflicted more pain on champions Manchester United as the bottom club rescued a 2-2 Premier League draw on Sunday, adding fuel to the fire for manager David Moyes's critics. It was a further blow to United's hopes of securing Champions League football next season and left them nine points behind Liverpool in fourth spot and six adrift of Tottenham Hotspur who beat Everton 1-0 with a goal from Emmanuel Adebayor. Late strikes from Robin Van Persie and Michael Carrick helped United cancel out Steve Sidwell's opener and evoked some of the never-say-die attitude that characterised former manager Alex Ferguson's long spell at the club. However, the uncertainty that has plagued the new regime came back to bite them as Fulham substitute Bent headed in at the far post to nick a point in the 94th minute. "Today was as bad as it gets," a shell- shocked Moyes told Sky Sports television. "We dominated the game. ...
The unpredictable games that make people love English football so much. There's a reason that the Premier League is touted as the best league in the world and it's not because it has the best players or the most skill - it's because it's unpredictable. The closeness of this season's title race is testament to that and the fact that results are thrown up that nobody saw coming is what makes it so great. Here are the 10 most shocking results since the league was re-branded in 1992. Southampton 6-3 Manchester United - 1996/97 This was the infamous match in which Alex Ferguson blamed the Red Devils' grey shirts as the cause of their defeat - although playing badly was probably more to do with it. Liverpool 0-1 Barnsley - 1997/98 Danny Wilson's side were struggling during their first season in the top flight, with just 10 points from 14 games and 5-0, 6-0 and 7-0 drubbings and yet managed to silence Anfield thanks to a Ashley Ward goal. Arsenal 0-3 Middlesbrough Having won just once in 24 matches Boro could no ...
