Review the Premier classification and see Manchester United with 7 points 6 journeys, in the post 12 and a difference with the leader, Arsenal, of 8 points, surprises and a lot to all football fans. What happens to the best English team of the last 20 years?
Occupy 27 years the same job, get better year after year, meeting your goals and being profitable for your company is almost impossible today. If any worker has an extra burden of demand in any job, in the world of football that requirement is maximum. Those 27 years are, the seasons in which Sir Alex Ferguson has led the destinies of Manchester United. Definitely, the most glorious years in the club's history.
Like everything in life is not forever, Ferguson retired last season. Sir Alex had managed 30 titles with the "Red Devil" on their 27 seasons at the head of the club, as coach and general manager. 13 Premier Leagues, 2 Champions Leagues, 5 FA Cup y 10 Community Shield are a legacy that weighs heavily on its successor, David Moyes.
Speculation about Sir Alex's retirement for years had fueled a wide debate about who might be his successor.. They didn't go far, just 30 miles, Another Scotsman was shining his own light in the neighboring city of Liverpool.. David Moyes coached Everton, a humble team with a modest budget that has rubbed shoulders with the best in the Premier's noble positions for the last decade. Everything fit, many saw in Moyes the ideal substitute for Sir Alex. A few months later, with the "red devils" in a worrying situation, we all ask ourselves the same question What is happening to Manchester United?
First, it should not be easy to replace the best coach in football history. Projects have to be consolidated, Moyes needs some time and trust, something the club is giving you. David will have more court, the pressure in england is different, no one would imagine the same coach in any other country 27 years in a row running a club. Secondly, the absence of significant reinforcements. Remember that Sir Alex left the club with a legend like Paul Scholes, therefore two important emblems of the club are gone this summer. Fellaini has been the only renowned signing and at the moment the position is too big for him.
By last, Moyes did not consider Sir Alex's last advice. He recommended that he keep the technical staff that had worked with him for years. Moyes ignored Sir Alex's sage and decided to dispense with the services of Eric Steele goalkeeping coach, Mike Phelan and Rene Millstone. In Steele's case he had done a great job consolidating De Gea. Asked today on Sky Sports, Steele said he is very proud of the work done and confident that the triumphs will come to Old Trafford..
Anyway, Moyes relied on his own "Toffes" staff with Phil Neville, former Manchester and Everton, making his coach debut, but at the moment the team is not getting results. Perhaps the best coach in club history was right, keep the staff, and not touching what works was the most reasonable thing having won the Premier last season. And it is the saying that "the devil knows more by old than by devil".
