The sorry saga of David Moyes won't shake Sir Alex Ferguson's self-belief | Marina Hyde

To imagine that Ferguson is fundamentally questioning himself at this juncture is to misunderstand the manThe one thing it isn't, I'm afraid, is hugely embarrassing for Sir Alex Ferguson. Quite how put out you are by that ineluctable truth is a matter of personal taste. You may in fact find it very palatable that the former Manchester United titan will regard himself as entirely unbesmirched by the sorry saga which on Tuesday saw his chosen successor find his desk in the lift. Or you may wish fervently that a chastened Ferguson were sitting right now in a luxury hotel room, crying his...

Time for Manchester United to get real: Ferguson's legacy is long gone

Theatre of Dreams is no longer the attraction it used to be as United search for a successor to David MoyesManchester United supporters must be hugely relieved that Sir Alex Ferguson is going to play a part in headhunting their next manager. He has achieved such a lot in the game, he knows the club inside out and he must have every promising coach's number in his contact book, so what could possibly go wrong?Apologies for the flippancy, but things have moved on a bit since the last coronation and United still do not appear to appreciate the seriousness of the new situation. They are still...

The sacking of David Moyes: a scientific rationale | Dean Burnett

David Moyes has been sacked as manager of Manchester United football club after only 10 months. As it seems to be a legal requirement that all media sources cover the story in painstaking detail, here is a scientific explanation of why his dismissal might have occurred David Moyes is no longer manager of Manchester United. If, like myself until recently, you dont know who David Moyes is, he was manager of Manchester United football club, until yesterday (at time of writing).

Manchester United: a club like the others | Editorial

With the sacking of David Moyes, Manchester United is once again a football club like all the restTuesday simultaneously marked the end of a football error and of a football era. Over the past 60 years, Manchester United have been a football club like no other. Now, with the sacking of David Moyes, whose 10 months as manager proved to be a relative failure for a club with a presumption of dominance, Manchester United is once again a football club like all the rest. That's both good and bad.Even today, Manchester United's unique status is partly explained by the Munich air crash of 1958, which...
