Manchester United: Next 3 Games Provide David Moyes With Chance To Build Momentum
Manchester United‘s upcoming fixtures provide David Moyes with a blend of games that will enable the club to gain a momentum that has yet to have been found.
The main reason for this is that the three games that are next up until the end of October are all home games for United at Old Trafford. It would have been four straight home fixtures for Moyes to set things straight, but having drawn with Southampton 1-1 on Saturday, the idea has stalled.
The fixtures ahead are all winnable games; starting with Real Sociedad in the Champions League, Moyes has a chance to create a feel-good factor and hunger at Old Trafford once again. The stadium will trial it’s first ever singing section for the English champions, so the atmosphere should be high — a win will help create a positive vibe once again after a miserable weekend.
Providing United overcome the Spanish visitors in midweek they then have Stoke City in the Premier League on the Saturday followed by Norwich in midweek, in the Capital One Cup. It’s a fast flow of games, which Moyes can alternate his squad. If three wins come on the bounce, the fears will begin to subside slightly and the depressing period of late is likely to be quickly forgotten. But it is a big “if,” and in all honesty you would have to say it is no certainty that all three games will be won with ease.
Moyes needs a chance to get things on track after a tough start and now the opportunity has arisen with three fairly average opponents in relation to United’s quality at Old Trafford — which needs it’s fear factor restored.
