Man Utd Fans Must Remember The Ferguson Era As It Really Was, And Not Use It As A Weapon

Ferguson was United, and United was Ferguson. United must now, in a sense, grow as a new club. Cherish the past, enjoy it, but don't twist those memories too far away from reality and expect the present and the future to match up.

It took some time for van Gaal to figure things out and to imprint his own style on the squad, but it's now starting to pay off and further improvement will continue to follow. What would have happened in the unlikely event that the club hierarchy had listened to the ridiculous calls to swing the axe?

This was not an episode from HBOs much anticipated Season 4 of Game of Thrones though, but the real live drama unfolding at Manchester United as David Moyes was sacked and the battle for his successor starts to take place.

David Moyes (P)out

Apart from his first couple of games, which included a Community Shield victory and a perfect start of the season away at Swansea, David Moyes has struggled ever since in his reign at United. And in hindsight of the two embarrassing losses against City and Liverpool, both by a 3-0 scoreline, a decision is, for me, inevitable. He must depart and here are nine reasons why.

Anyone catch that Keane v Vieira documentary the other week? If you've watched any football on ITV recently, you'll have seen national village idiot Adrian Chiles repeatedly flatulating over it like some sort of gammon whoopee cushion, each time turning to simper at sweet-tempered Roy with the distinct air of a man doing everything in his meagre powers to avoid having his intestines used to hoist the boom.

Manchester United Should Have Turned to Mourinho Not Moyes

Currently suffering their poorest start to a Premier League season on record, it's fair to say that even those who criticised the managerial appointment of David Moyes (and there were plenty of them) wouldn't have predicted United would be languishing in ninth position with more than a third of the season gone.

On the Beckham issue, one just has to laugh. What was the point of digging all that up in such a negative way? Why do a hatchet job in the book and then try to make amends in the book launch, by stating the obvious? Why bring his wife, Victoria, into it?

What Can We Learn From Football Managers?

There can be little argument that Alex Ferguson's tenure at Manchester united will be remembered as one in which he took a club that was still trading on past glories ("all fur coat and no knickers") and fashioned it a brand that was dominant on and off the pitch.

The Week That Was: A Harsh Dose of Reality

Political apathy is at unheard of levels and a solution is desperately needed. As we commence the stop-start road to the next election, the leading parties are lurching towards their particular ends of the political spectrum. This is a desperate attempt to appease their core voters, which will probably end up losing everyone else along the way. Ukip might be flavour of the month, or at least in England, but at least they're getting the population fired up about politics again.

Alex Ferguson Is an Alpha-Male Primate and This Is Why He Was a Great Manager

The power and prestige which Ferguson accumulated over his years at Manchester United built all these capacities in him, leading to his team's huge success. But the more successful he became, the bigger the egos he had to deal with among his millionaire players. Success, like power, is a strong drug which inflates egos and can distort judgment and personality.
