Why would one of the biggest clubs in the world appoint a manager who has won the sum total of fuck all?

Yeah, that sort of thing never happened before.

Winning a competition is irrelevant to the skills a manager such as Moyes possesses. 

Irrelevant? Winning competitions and knowing how to is hugely relevant if you want to manage a club like Man Utd I'd have thought?

They might well surprise us and come in for him, I can't see them going for a manager without a history or experience of winning things though?

Didn't say that at all, it of course isn't impossible Moyes could get the United job

Just extremely unlikely

In the same way 10 years ago Everton took a huge risk on an unheralded 38 year old who was manager of lowly Preston?

We were fighting for our lives, United are fighting for titles.

Yup, probably.

Wouldn't be the craziest thing if he did step down now though, he can't have more than a couple of years left and winning a 20th title is one hell of a high to go out on.

We weren't expected to challenge for the Champions League and league titles. The two situations are totaly different.

Just remind me what had Guardiola won before he was given the Barca job then.

Basically whoever Fergie chooses as his successor will be the manager United will sign and we don't know what goes on in his head.

Rumour is Fergie is having an op or something leaving them without cover therefore Moyes steps in and covers till Fergie resumes and then becomes an assistant for a year basically giving him experiance and eases the transition to new manager, seems odd but not many managers would take a years internship even at Man Utd you could just as easy be shown the door, we'll see soon enough nothing surprises me these days

I doubt they will announce anything at 11.00 pm.

Nothing but he was already a coach at Barca wasn't he?  plus he'd played for them before

Fergie's bigged up Mourinho plenty of times before, hhhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmm........... ...

 Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to make an SoS call for a new 'assistant' - as he prepares for life after his hip replacement operation.

With the Manchester United boss, 71, ready to undergo replacement surgery this summer, rumours have circulated that he is seriously considering retiring at the end of the season.

Everton manager David Moyes – whose contract is about to run out – has emerged as favourite this week in a betting frenzy predicting a new No.2 at United. However, Moyes has distanced himself from such a role.

You can take that to the bank.

Again though, if you have the resources to go for any manager on Earth, why would you pick David Moyes?

I'm not knocking him, but if you can't say he's in the top few managers in the world bar Ferguson then you haven't got much of an argument.

The "top-managers club" is a revolving door of managers who swap from one top of the league rich club to another in another league. Many win trophies arguably more because of who they are managing, than how they do it.

Moyes has not been given a position with resources. When he gets the chance I'm sure he'll succeed. Even though ill hate it to see him achieving at another club, and thinking 'we once had him', whilst we drop down league positions.
