From bad to worse- unless you’re a reporter…

We all knew there would be a merry dance throughout Fleet Street once Sir Alex Ferguson retired as manager of Manchester United. It wasn’t just the fact many of their number would have media bans at United press conferences lifted, that made the collective English football media rejoice, it was also the fact it more than likely heralded an end to the dominance of a club many of them despise.¬†

Not many national football journalists are ¬†United fans, in fact its safe to say many of them can’t stand the Reds and have to often report our success through somewhat gritted teeth. While Arsenal’s, Liverpool’s or even Chelsea’s successes are lauded over like a mesmerising gift from the gods, United’s triumphs are more often than not attributed to everyone else being poor, or the help of referees or other such drivel.

Now that the Red sun may be setting- hopefully only briefly- the Gooners in Fleet Street are revelling in United’s failure and yesterday’s second home defeat in four days signalled the start of more anti-Moyes/United sentiment.

It was to be expected, the question is, will it affect the manager or the players?

    Moyes! Congradulation!!! Man Utd finally becomes Eveton. Thank you so much!!!

    Wake up and stop “circling the wagons”. It is time for Moyes to be fired, as it is obvious he doesn’t have the courage to quit himself. We are already 7 points adrift of Champions League qualification, and the longer Moyes and his clueless assistants continue in charge the deeper the hole they are digging. The media are actually doing United a favor as the pressure will build to fire Moyes.

    You idiot United have always been favoured by the media, have you ever heard Clive Tyldsley commentary? The truth is that United always got EVERY decision they needed add that to the fact they did have a great team as well and you have a recipe for success. Now that Fergie has retired refs are no longer afraid of any repercussions and reffing games objectively add to this the side is less motivated and past its sell by date in many areas and you have a recipe for ordinariness.

    all i knw is that united is falling down gradually just like an iroko tree we need to do something fast before is too late david moyes is not the right man for manchester united and i think he is doing to us no good than harm so he needs to be sacked as we can we are in new era i dont think it would be as tough as before for him to recreate his own status and beside we are not the only ones that changed our manager but all of them has improved except united either way lets give him some little time more till january if we see no change i think no need for excuses any more then he should be sacked before we looses our fans to other clubs.infact i hate moyes ideal he has no action and good tactics that a big club like man utd needs so i think he should also improve on that way or let him seek for good advise and instructions for the good of him and for the future of our club.and our players are not really impressing they also should try cos they are equal to the task no man utd no football i will always remain a man utd fans UP MAN UTD
