The real question on everyone's mind is what's going to Mike Phelan?

... Fyzo, go back a few pages ... Brought up the Moyes thing earlier this year or late last year.
My bad, I miss (or forget) that, so had they mentioned him as a replacement or was he someone you wanted?

Question regarding the Manchester United succession planning: what's so special about David Moyes?

Nah, I not on board the David Moyes train, but I understand the calculus that allegedly has insinuated him into speculation.

Good to see his back.   Good riddance.

Yeah good riddance.  Great manager.

BREAKING News: Manchester United is looking at bringing in a coach that can do some damage. Reports coming in is that he is a native of Trinidad and Tobago. A close friend of that individual as leaked information on the web site "Nonya" short for "Nonyabusiness" It was reported that the friend indicated that his close friend and colleague will be with the Red Devils sooner, rather than later as expected. He also stated that he will be joining the ranks as soon as his colleague signs the contract because once his friend has a job, he too will be hired. So who is this mystery man?

As impressive as his resume with Man Utd is, let's not forget what Sir Alex achieved in Scotland and in Europe with Aberdeen, breaking up the Old Firm duopoly in the process:

True. I am also a Celtic fan and immediately wanted to know how the hell Aberdeen had become so good enough to beat Celtic-Ranger mafioso. That is when I took notice of Ferguson. Was not expecting him to go to Utd though.

Espn had a documentary about him. Even when the team won he still wasn't satisfied. Man was cussing while the players celebrating. Lol

I deleted my post about taking Benitez over Moyes...i thought about it, and decided that I will give him a chance. Fergie did not have any European experience before he took over and look what happened. The only down side, Rooney might not last very long with Moyes after his book that caused problems between them. The other positive I am trying to comfort myself with is the fact that he has done well with limited funds and lasted 10 years at Everton. I know Fergie will coach him form time to time to help improve the team.

What will Moyes time be like??



2.41pm BST

Here's the statement on Everton's website.

    Everton can confirm that David Moyes will leave the Club at the end of the season.

    The Manager met Chairman Bill Kenwright early yesterday evening (Wednesday 8th May) and confirmed his desire to join Manchester United. The Chairman, on behalf of the Club, would like to place on record his thanks to David for the massive contribution he has made to Everton since his arrival in March 2002. He has been an outstanding Manager.
    During his tenure at Goodison Park, David has taken charge of the team on over 500 occasions including four European campaigns.
    His final two games as Everton Manager will be the remaining Premier League matches against West Ham United and Chelsea. Everton officials will start the search for a replacement manager immediately.

Yu know, I for one will welcome David Moyes as manager.  That way SAF will get to still have a say in team selection/player signing etc.  If the Great one comes to the club, SAF will have nothing more to do with the team.  Jus sad that Rooney will be on the sh*t list if he can't transfer out the club.  Then again, you never know nah.
