Steven Gerrard announced his international retirement to a chorus of fans and experts claiming he did the right thing, but why is it left to players to make the call? After captaining England at their most disappointing World Cup, Gerrard has opted to call time on his international career, just as he was expected to do.
So there you have it, the mass exodus of Manchester United luminaries begins. With Nemanja Vidic opting to take the decision out of the hands of United's hierarchy, and maneuvering himself a move to Italy, United's experience within the dressing room is decimated. If Sir Alex Ferguson were in charge, this would never have happened.
Tactics and philosophies can be adapted and changed at the drop of a hat. Hopefully Moyes will start to play to the strengths of the side rather than continue stubbornly with an outdated formation that isn't working. The biggest problem Moyes faces is keeping control of a dressing room full of champions.
