- Its official Alex Ferguson has retired, OMG
I’m sure the fact that David Moyes has let his contract run down at Everton for the first time ever is purely coincidental. As with most things at United, I suspect this will all have been sorted months agoPosted 4 years ago
What Binners said I always assumed they would go high profile like Jose but Moyes would be my bet at present
Worth noting that he has been awesome at Everton but has never had a big budget to play with so he is untested in this respect and in Europe.

Jorgen Klopp for the next Man U manager?
Ticks all the boxes but according to Talksport he has a contract until 2016 which he intends to honour. I reckon David Moyes will get it.
Sad to see the end of the Fergie reign but a good chance to see if the team can play for somebody else now..
If Mourinho gets it will we see the return of Ronaldo to Man U?Posted 4 years agomrlebowskiMember
Well I have to say I didnt see that one coming.
Most Man Utd fans I know thought he’d be carried out in a box..
I don’t know who’ll get the job, I always thought it would be Pep in 3 yrs once he’s done with Bayern. I can’t see Moyes doing it ergo the most likely is Jose, but I hope not as I’d like to see him back at CFC.Posted 4 years ago
Whoever it is, leaner times lie ahead…
Judging by the standards of everyone else in the premiership this season, that seems awfully presumptuous or just wishful thinking. Have you noticed the points gap at the top?
After all, Moyes will be able to get the best out of Rooney. Though on a positive note, you may be in with a shout of finishing above Everton next season 😉Posted 4 years ago
The points gap at the top is down to Fergie, any other manager with that squad would have been duelling with city and Chelsea.
It’s all well being optimistic, but any other team which has achieved big success under a talismanic manager who moves on experience a decline. It only natural, and Utd will be no different.Posted 4 years ago
Bobby Charlton said about 6 months ago in an interview that there was no way on earth a club like United ‘would tolerate’ someone like Jose. Too much of a loose canon, and the football he plays is dull and defensive.
I love Jose. He;s value for money. Whether I would still do if he was our manager, not somebody elses? HmmmmmmmmmmmmPosted 4 years ago
Guardiola is untested IMHO
He has manged Barca then Bayern – the two best teams in the world at the time he manged them – not the hardest of tests tbh
Jury is still out on him IMHO though clearly he is not rubbish. NB Barca walked the league this year with a manager who spent 1/2 of the season in hospital in New york and spoke only via video link….not the harshest of tests basically and neither is managing Bayern so I wait till he has a real challenge
Moyes is unproven at the VERY top level thoughPosted 4 years ago
In a nice way, why would Man U sign Moyes? Yes he does well (6th) with his team etc and he’d stay around alongtime. Maybe its to do with his management style?
If you look at the net spend of all premiership clubs, then base their league position purely on that, then Everton should be in a relegation scrap every season. They aren’t. They’re top end of the table. Teams like Liverpool, Villa or Newcastle spend fortunes compared to Everton, yet consistently finish below them
Remember: United don’t have the financial muscle of City or Chelski, so we can’t do the massive money-splurges they do any more. So Moyes would be ideal. Look at the players he’s brought into EvertonPosted 4 years agohoraMember
I think thats unfair on him Junkyard. Pre-Pep they’d only won the title twice in almost a decade and the Champions league ONCE in almost 20yrs (Before him). He built/changed and put his stamp on the team – he didn’t walk in and could you argue that the team that he left at handover was because of him?
The moniker brilliant young manager definitely should go to him.
Why not Steve Bruce, Steve Mclaren or Sven Goran Errisson? 😆 😆Posted 4 years ago

2005 and 2006 – where they also dd the treble with the Champions League and they were level on points in 2007 but lost on head to heads with Real Madrid and then Pep took over – he was hardly turning them around just continuing the sucess hence why I conside rhim “untested”

You could argue this but the facts dont really help, you should be in your element 😉
I am not saying he is not great but managing a succesful Barca team and then a succesful Bayern team are not the sternest of testsPosted 4 years ago
Jose did it at Porto for example and fergie at Aberdeend – even Benitez did it with Valencia [ irrc] ..there is not mediocre teamlike this in his CV that is my point. I would fancy my chances managing Bayern or Barca tbh gotta be easier than managing DoncasterirelanstMember
