What I hope for is Moyes will keep the same strategy of United which is growing young players like: Welbeck and Jones

Someone tweeted on Twitter:''An Idiot Abroad, Series 4 - Starting in September. David Moyes with Manchester United in the Champions League.''

Could be true

I wouldnt do it if I were Moyes, he is going to have Ferguson breathing down his neck. I would wait till the next manager gets fired then do it =)

David Moyes regularly gets Everton into the top five in the EPL with a shoestring budget, he is also from the same neighbourhood in Glasgow as Fergie. He is, by far, the best replacement. Fergie wants it to be Moyes also.

Jurgen Klopp is probably the 'best' choice but my prefered choice (as a neutral) would be Moyes.

People have wondered for years what he'd be able to do with a big enough budget, it'd be good to see and I think he'd be a success but would it be any good for him.... that's a harder one.

Would the MUFC fans allow him to win the Premiership or make the Champions League semi-final 2 or 3 times every 5 years?.. or any manager to be honest. Sir Alex is going to be one hell of a hard act to follow.

Interesting.

Everybody saying Moyes is pretty nailed on. Wonder how many plastics will jump ship if they dont win anything for a couple of years.

Whoever comes in best be able to handle extreme pressure, especially with old whisky nose still looming over their shoulder

I've only been a United fan since 2004ish when Leeds were relegated and Alan Smith came to united. But in those years i have come to know Alex as one of the best managers of all time if not the best, a bedrock of english football and at his age still has enough football fever to jump in celebration like a true fan. While other teams rotate mangers like tires, see liverpool and chelski, this man has made United the best team in English history. Sad to see him go but our future is bright regardless of the manager.

You smashed it Boycee.

No matter what the new manager does, he will never be able to live up to Ferguson. A new manager needs time and he wont be given time at Man Utd because expectations are to high there because of Ferguson being the best. As I said before, what happened at Man Utd was dangerous. I cant see fans from America, Asia etc.. staying around if the team are not winning things straight away.

They had their long party but now the party is over and its time for the hangover(good one John).
