Misery came from David Moyes once again as Manchester United has crashed out of the FA Cup following another home defeat at the hands of Michael Laudrup‘s Swansea City. The FA Cup was probably the only major title that United actually had a chance to win, and now it is gone. This season has gone from bad to worse and just when it seems like it can’t get any worse, Moyes finds a way to harm the team even more.
Eliminated from the FA Cup, 11 points adrift Arsenal in the Premier League, and with little or no chance to attract any major signings in the winter transfer window means that United is international football’s laughing stock. They look set to miss next year’s Champions League as well, but could very well progress this term against Greek side Olympiakos. Under Moyes, this team is terrible; his tactics are dull, his players are over trained, and he has no idea how to run one of the world’s biggest clubs. As a die-hard United fan, it is heartbreaking to see what Moyes is doing to this wonderful club.
I hope and pray that Moyes does not see out his six-year contract, because he is clearly the wrong man for the job. I realize that patience is a virtue and that he needs time, but time is earned with results on the pitch. In any other job in the world, this many mistakes would cost the average person their job, so why not Moyes?
Failure to progress in the easiest competition they are playing is pitiful, and it highlights the even bigger problems this team has under its new manager. Moyes will not fix the problem, he can’t. I’m sure he is a splendid person, but he is inadequate and he proves it week in and week out. The club’s finances are having problems, Wayne Rooney will not commit to this team, Robin Van Persie seems close to the exit door, Europe’s elite players will not join, and fans are growing increasingly frustrated. I ask, is Moyes worth all the trouble he is putting Manchester United through?
