The Moyes effect

After Manchester United side were beaten 4-1 by Manchester City, David Moyes confessed that the pain may not be over just yet. “It was always going to be tough,’ he said ‘following such a great manager with a great team and I think people with real football knowledge will know there are probably some changes to be made.”

I suggest that people with real football knowledge will think that the pain was self-inflicted. Mr Moyes sent out a team without a midfield runner, with a centre-back at right back, with £27m worth of Fellaini played too far back to do any damage and with a passenger on  the left wing. A couple of weeks ago he was saying that he was perfectly happy with the squad at his disposal; now it seems he isn’t. I’ve seen most of Man U’s games since he took over, and it seems to me that there are two major problems; the way the team is set up and the manager’s apparent inability to make obvious tactical changes in the course of the game.

The signs are that the club will do well to finish in the top four this season.
