Giggs tried - and failed - to save Moyes from disciplinary mistakes

According to reports, Ryan Giggs attempted to convince David Moyes not to discipline three Manchester United players after a night out, but was ignored. More stories of Moyesy misery. You may recall the shocking incident which saw not one, not two, but three Manchester United players going out for a drink after the loss to Bayern Munich. Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck were silly enough to get photographed while pillocking around on the streets, and they along with Ashley Young were fined for breaching team orders. It appears that Manchester United's new manager, Ryan Giggs, asked...

Reports disagree on Giggs' future

Reports disagree on Giggs' future

According to one set of sources, Ryan Giggs is not being considered for the manager's job beyond the end of this season. According to another, he just might be. The BBC has learned. They don't say how they've learned it, or who from. They don't even bother to claim to have any sources close to the players, or the board, or the dressing room. No, they have simply learned it it isolation. This is what they have learned. They have learned that Ryan Giggs, Manchester United's interim player-manager, is not under consideration for the job on a permanent basis. The job of manager, that is. A...

Giggs suggests what his Manchester United side would look like

Giggs suggests what his Manchester United side would look like

With Ryan Giggs taking over as Manchester United manager until a permanent boss is appointed, some old quotes about what his side might look like have surfaced. With David Moyes binned, Ryan Giggs will be taking over until a permanent manager is appointed, which almost certainly means the last few games of the season. Perhaps fortunately, if you're on the "please let's not appoint someone almost unsackable who isn't a real manager" bandwagon, that's not much of a time to audition and the wording suggests that he's not really being considered for the full-time gig (although it does mean...

Giggs to take over as United to announce Moyes sacking "as early as Tuesday"

Manchester United will announce the sacking of David Moyes 'as early as Tuesday', according to Ian Herbert in the Independent. Manchester United will announce that David Moyes has been sacked as Manchester United manager 'as early as Tuesday', according to the Independent. The report, from Ian Herbert, contains a number of intriguing tidbits - more on which very shortly on TBB - but it seems that Moyes will not last to see the next United game, against Norwich City on Saturday. That means that Ryan Giggs is the likeliest candidate to take over in a caretaker manager role - possibly giving...

Manchester United vs. Bayern Munich, Live coverage: Giggs and Welbeck both start

Ryan Giggs and Danny Welbeck are both in the lineup to face Bayern. David Moyes is playing Ryan Giggs and Danny Welbeck for tonight's thrashing/game against Bayern Munich. It's possible that United are going with an unusual 4-3-3, with Giggs partnering Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick in midfield, though Moyes could be sticking with his tried and tested 4-2-3-1 and pushing Giggs out left. Elsewhere, Alexander Büttner starts at left-back with Patrice Evra suspended. No big deal, he's only going up against Arjen Robben. Gulp. Pre-match doubt Rafael is out of the squad, meaning we'll...

Giggs' no comment on succeeding Moyes, also hints he could leave the club

Ryan Giggs came out with David Moyes for his press conference before Manchester United vs. Bayern Munich for a vague show of solidarity. What could possibly go wrong? With Neil Custis already having had his thruppence before the more outlandish Class-of-92 rumours started flying about, touting Ryan Giggs for the Manchester United job, it's rather important that David Moyes should keep the Welshman on side. It's also rather important that they should be seen to be friends. So, what better way to do so than to have dear old Giggsy join Moyesy on his press-conference before plucky little...
