He wasn't left with a shabby team, the squad was good but needed a couple players to gel everything together. I said it before Moyes was official that whoever got the job is going to have a hell of a job taking over because fans want immediate success and players would most likely rebel against whoever they signed and wouldnt play right. Top that with still having Fergie breathing down your neck I imagine Old Trafford was a crap place to work. He shouldve been given two years but whoever leads the way this summer will have a tough time but most likely easier than Moyes as Utd fans will just be happy to actually challenge for CL next year.

Looks like Van Gaal is replacing him; most including me wanted Klopp but it looks like he's too loyal to BVB.

On the face of it Van Gaal looks like a fine selection. And if he gets 'hit' he's going to push and punch back.

I disagree. I think Man U last year was fools gold. City, Chelsea and Liverpool were each down. Van Persie had an exceptional season and Fergie was able to park the bus in Champions League. This teams need a retooling like Liverpool went thru.

And that was apparently going on for awhile. With Mr. Rodgers coming aboard perhaps its now that they they've finally found their 'feet' after the 'dry' years. I'm sure the manu board doesn't want to visit that scenario. I salute manu for its immense drive as it consistently went on to successful years. Mr. Rodgers certainly knows what it took for that success. I hope he too can pick up on that great winning mentality it and emulate it. Good for his team, good for all the challengers, good for the EPL, good for football.

Now that Moyes is gone I believe the best options would be: Jurgen Klopp or Diego Simeone. They are the best longterm managers available who can rebuild the team and use the youth squad + some transfers. Choices like Van Gaal are short term options who can win one league, cup and maybe a cl final in three years but after that the team will sink deeper than 7th place because the manager will run out of options. Bayern are a great example they were powerful one year and the next they were overpowered by BVB

Klopp isn't coming. All signs point to Van Gaal.

Just askin'..do you think 'Roy' will be invited? Of the squad, he said they should be 'ashamed of themselves'. From Keane's point he felt they let Moyes down on the pitch.
