    Manchester United Search to Replace David Moyes Could Scupper Arsenal's … Tue, Apr 22, 2014

    Manchester United are on the lookout for their second manager in just ten months after David Moyes was sacked.  The beleaguered boss will be temporarily replaced by interim manager Ryan Giggs, who will patrol United's technical area for the final four Premier League matches of the season. While the 40-year-old will garner unequivocal support from the United faithful, fans of Arsenal might hope his managerial inexperience does not cast doubt on his long-term potential to succeed Moyes.  Arsene Wenger is likely to put pen to paper on a new short-term deal in the summer, but if the Gunners lose at Wembley and are leapfrogged by Everton in the race to secure the final Champions League qualification spot, then the Frenchman's position becomes very precarious indeed.

    David Moyes Sacked: Why Manchester United Should Make Ryan Giggs Their Permanent … Tue, Apr 22, 2014

    There will no shortage of theories behind David Moyes' futile attempts to lead Manchester United to glory but one failure that will sit atop his charge sheet is a telling inability to inspire. Well documented issues with squad personnel and the inability to address those in the transfer market will have not helped the former United boss, but his failure to comply with his role as motivator in-chief was his capital crime. With the exception of David De Gea, every single United player has been guilty of underperforming during their dismal campaign. But in the man who has been handed the role as interim manager, the club will have an individual who represents a figure who has and will seamlessly continue to command respect from everyone at Old Trafford.

    David Moyes Set To Sacrifice Up To 10 Manchester United Players This Summer Fri, Apr 11, 2014

    Manchester United boss David Moyes is planning a wholescale summer clear-out to avoid another season of failure, and according to reports he is considering shedding at least ten players from his squad. United missed out on the chance of Champions League glory last Wednesday after being knocked out by Bayern Munich, and they are currently seventh in the table, meaning that they are unlikely to be in Europe's elite club competition next season. According to the Daily Mail, Juan Mata's January signing is expected to be just the first of many new arrivals - while a host of big-name stars will leave Old Trafford. Nemanja Vidic has already confirmed his move to Inter Milan at the end of the season while Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra are expected to join him as their contracts at United are also due to expire this summer.

    After Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Adnan Januzaj, reports suggest James Wilson could be the next stellar talent to emerge from the Manchester United youth system. United boss David Moyes gave the young striker a taste of the first team by naming him on the bench against Newcastle, and just two days later he burnished his burgeoning reputation with a superb 25-yard-strike in the U21 league against Aston Villa. Former United defender Clayton Blackmore has tipped Wilson for the top, telling the club's official website. United scouted Wilson at the age of seven and since then the only thing he has done is improve. More »

    Manchester United Supporters Trust chief executive Duncan Drasdo has backed the rumoured attempts of a consortium including David Beckham and the Class of '92 to stage an unlikely takeover at Old Trafford. Reports on Thursday suggested that Beckham, Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville are part of a group looking to stage a buy-out of the Glazer family at the troubled Premier League champions. The American owners have plunged United into substantial debt, overseen a rise in ticket prices while failing to consistently invest in the playing squad during nine years at the club which sees them cast as deeply unpopular figures at the Theatre of Dreams. While suggestions that a consortium led by the six iconic United figures, four of which are still employed by the club, appear farfetched, the news has been welcomed by MUST which has long campaigned against the Glazers' regime.

    Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has heaped praise on Manchester United and Roma legends Ryan Giggs and Francesco Totti and hopes he can recreate their longevity in the game. At 40 and 37 respectively, Giggs and Totti represent the increasingly rare occurance of a player remaining at the same club from youth level to the role of elder statesmen which both currently hold. Former Welsh international Giggs has enjoyed the greater share of silverware in a career that has spanned 23 years including 13 Premier League titles, four FA Cups and two Champions League successes. At 29, Germany international Schweinsteiger is well on his way to enjoying similar success having won 15 major honours with the Bavarian giants and fully intends to follow the example set by two of European football's most revered veterans.

    Paul Scholes has launched a scathing attack on Arsenal following their 6-0 demolition at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The former Manchester United man believes that the Gunners do not have a leader in their squad of the calibre of Patrick Vieira and Martin Keown who were the architects behind Arsenal's glory period in the late 90s and the early 00s. Scholes, who was part of Ferguson's class of 1992 which also produced the likes of David Beckham and Ryan Giggs, retired at the end of last season along with Sir Alex Ferguson.  More »

    Robin van Persie's hat-trick eased the pressure on manager David Moyes and secured Manchester United's passage into the Champions League quarter-final at the expense of Olympiakos at Old Trafford. Van Persie struck twice in the first half, the opener coming from the penalty spot, before hitting a stunning free-kick six minutes after the break to help overturn the 2-0 first leg deficit alongside Ryan Giggs virtuoso performance aged 40.

    David Moyes on the Precipice at Manchester United as Players and Supporters … Mon, Mar 17, 2014

    David Moyes' future as Manchester United manager is growing increasingly bleak after evidence of supporters turning on the Scot following the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool was accentuated by reports of a major falling-out with senior players at Old Trafford. United won the title by 11 points ahead of Manchester City last term in Sir Alex Ferguson's final season but currently sit seventh and face their lowest top flight finish for 24 years and not qualifying for European competition for the first time since 1981, following a ninth Premier League defeat of the campaign. Moyes was handed a six-year contract upon being appointed as successor to Ferguson but after another abject display in defeat to Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool, he faces strong questions over his capability to lead the club beyond the end of the current term. Problems at United had initially been confined to performances on the pitch, particularly at home where they have won just six times in 14 league games, but club fanzine Red Issue has revealed that a training ground bust-up with player-coach Ryan Giggs before the game against Liverpool is jeopardising Moyes' future.

The first task faced by Moyes will be to replace outgoing United captain Nemanja Vidic, who will leave the club at the end of the season upon the expiry of his contract. More »

    United Manager Moyes Reacts to Constant Ferguson Presence Wed, Jan 8, 2014

    Manchester United manager David Moyes claims Sir Alex Ferguson's attendance at games is not an unwanted distraction after Sunderland inflicted upon his side their third successive defeat. Ferguson has been spotted at a number of United games this season during the early months of Moyes' tenure at Old Trafford, with his presence being regarded as pilling extra pressure on the new manager. But Moyes, after Ryan Giggs' own goal and Fabio Borini's penalty helped Sunderland take a 2-1 lead in the League Cup semi-final first leg, says Ferguson attending matches is not an unwanted interference and finds the ex-United boss welcome company. Bryan Robson is at the training ground regularly and I find the three of them terrific. More »

    David Moyes criticised the officials claiming that Manchester United are playing the opposition as well as the referees in the aftermath of their first leg defeat in the semi-final of the Capital One Cup against Sunderland on Tuesday. The Red Devils conceded a goal on the cusp of half-time, after poor defending from a set piece saw Ryan Giggs tap the ball past his own goalkeeper. Nemanja Vidic equalised for the visitors after 52 minutes on the clock but the euphoria was short-lived. Fabio Borini put the Black Cats ahead from the spot 12 minutes later when Tom Cleverley was adjudged to have fouled Adam Johnson inside the box. More »
