David Moyes facing the sack at Manchester United

David Moyes facing the sack at Manchester United
• Manager a dead man walking at Old Trafford
• 2-0 defeat to Everton was final straw

David Moyes is facing the sack as Manchester United's manager with the owners, the Glazer family, and Ed Woodward, the vice-president, in discussions over when to end the Scot's reign.

United's 2-0 defeat at Everton on Sunday was the latest evidence to the executive that Moyes is the wrong man to lead the club and it is now only a matter of time before the decision is taken. Should he go before the end of the season, which appears likely, United may put Ryan Giggs in temporary charge. The 40-year-old, who is player-coach, would command the instant respect of the squad and would consider taking up the role, even if only temporary.

As reported by the Guardian , Moyes has been under scrutiny since last month following the 3-0 loss to Liverpool. The chief concern for the board is how badly the side have played throughout the season, with little sign of improvement. Questions were asked at the highest level about whether he could be trusted to carry out a £150m rebuild in the summer.

The club are intent on reshaping the squad in the close season and the discussions between Woodward and the Glazers centred on whether a new manager should be brought in to drive the process.

Commenting on the speculation surrounding Moyes's future, the former United defender Gary Neville said: "I think the whole situation at the club right now is repulsive. The club really need to make a statement."

What a shame - I was really enjoying the David Moyes era at ManU :lol1: :lol1: :lol1: :lol1: :lol1:

Gonna be interesting to see who they bring in though (they should have got Mourinho, but Ferguson probably didn't fancy that so steered them onto Moyes)

Is a top flight manager (Jurgen Klopp for ex ?) really gonna want to risk coming to a ManU side that's in disarray (no champions league next year, shit owners, crappy board, Rooney's impossible to shift with his massive contract, etc) ? Or is the big money/power too good to resist ? :dunno:

Forget the Klopps, Van gaals and all them other fancy managers : I think the solution to ManU's problem is to promote Phil Neville :lol1: :lol1: :lol1: :lol1: :lol1:

Word is Giggs is going to be temporary manager. Until they find a replacement (Or he runs out of players wife and sisters to shag) :lol1: :lol1: :lol1: :lol1: :lol1: :lol1: :lol1:

Latest rumours are that Van Gaal & Ancelotti are the lead candidates (& some journalists are saying that Van Gaal would bring in Roy Keane as his n°2... what could go wrong with that setup ? :laugh: )

Me, I'd throw a ton of cash at Jurgen Klopp & get him over there
