    Finger crossed! You can gladly have Laudrup though :D.
    Ignoring this jibe, I'd like to echo the sentiments of my unwashed brethren and say fuck off Everton!

    MacKay might be alright. He's Scottish, so that's something.

    Tho tbh he should stay at Cardiff.

    You get some mega ego's at Man Utd, its part of the job, and right off the bat you've got this prima donna, rooney, throwing his rattle out the pram. I hope david is ready for that sort of thing, it's not a bunch of level headed hard working guys at this club.

    Moyes doesn't take crap from any player. He has made that clear at us.

    The attitude and the ethic he was able to instil was a lot to do with the success at Everton I think. but it's harder to get that out of the elites, they all think their the best and there's a lot more off-pitch shit, I guess he's experienced and dealt with all sorts though.

    Well they are hand in hand. The success didn't just materialise. You do have to earn respect, but it also filters right into getting the players to work. Moyes is not the kind of manager to tolerate childish antics. He has made that quite clear with the odd ego we've had.

    Of all the things that could possibly go wrong with Moyes at United, discipline will most certainly not be one of them.

    He's also got the full backing of the board so i don't think any players are going to be able to pull a fast one on him

    I suppose that is true. It's a different challenge, inspiring an underdog minded team and a champion minded team... I always wondered how he managed to get so much out of Everton, when they were not likely to win anything, they always kept going, how did he manage to inspire them like that. I guess that's his magic trick and probably what a lot of managers also wonder. Now it's a different challenge, let's see if he can do it, it will be interesting.

    Hiring the right players is a big part of it. You instill a strong work ethic and make it very clear that no one is bigger than the team. That way anyone coming in knows they have to adapt to it because it won't just be the manager on their case, but everyone else too. Anyone who is a twat gets removed, regardless how good they are.

    Can't see that happening. Got to be Martinez, hasn't it? Especially since Wigan are going down.

    A friend of mine said that the United team is good enough to almost manage itself with the 'systems' in place. Had to remind him of Scolari's turn at Chelsea.

    Moyes seems to be the only logical choice although I would have liked to see JM do a couple of years despite his reputation.

    Everton fans will know this. From what I can gather, Moyes had a really good youth system in place. He's also sensible with money and certainly will be there for the long term.

    The question as to if he will snap under pressure is an interesting one. I hope he doesn't and he'll have Fergie to guide him through it anyhow. No, he hasn't won anything but then again, he's never had a squad like the one at United.

    It's all very exciting. Does anyone still think the Prem is boring? I don't think it's ever been better. The race for the Champions League spot is tense and exciting as is the relegation battle. Probably not for someone who supports the teams involved but damn, it's close. Let's not forget that last season's winners were determined by pretty much the last kick of the season.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    One thing United fans may be overlooking is Moyes's ability to spot talent early. Before they all hit the big time we were heavily linked with the likes of Cech, Dzeko, Hazard, and of course Joao "watch this space" Moutinho, none of which came through because we fell short with cash.

    Of course he's had his duffers too, and buying players for instant success as part of a United team is different to buying them for Everton effectively with a long-term profit in mind. The prospect of Moyes with a chequebook is intriguing.

    I'm hoping that that scouting network is not just down to Moyes, but is now solid at Goodison. Although he may take it with him.

    My biggest concern with him leaving is the loss of the head of a family. I'm not kidding myself that footballers won't go to the biggest bidder, but the majority of the league is made up of temporary bits stuck together. I've been proud to support my club because of the family environment there. We had lots of off days, not been able to finish off games this season has been our biggest downfall, but I never really felt the team wasn't giving its all in a match, Now I'm worried that will go. The lack of ability is one thing, but the lack of spirit is another.

    @THFourteen You say it like every team signs world beaters.

    I just like the fact he gives players a chance like Coleman. So hoping Powell either goes out on loan or he's in squad to replace Anderson.

    PL has a few gems worth a risk like Shaw at Saints. Championship with Ince. Who for me would be a gem for anyone.

    Well, at least the end of the season is working out perfectly for Chelsea and that's all that matters

    Decided to check the Man U facebook page to see if it was plagued by the same grade of idiot as the LFC one.

    Lots of Y NO CHAMPION LEAGUE EXPERIENCE! / EVERTON DID NOT FINISH TOP 4! / WHAT ABOUT SPECIAL ONE? / GET POP GARDIOLA!

    So yes.

    This was interspersed with a few more stable heads who were pointing out that the entire structure at Old Trafford had decided on Moyes and they might know a thing or two about managing a football club, over a facebook commenter.

    These are the sort of vocal morons that Moyes will have to win over though. Every minor slip will be met with cries to bring in some ridiculous and unavailable manager, or to go back to Fergie, or to bring in some retired squad member.

    I still don't really understand what 'European Experience' actually is. It doesn't make much sense to me.

    He's spent the past 10 years playing against 'European' clubs, even Champions League winners. He's faced off against some of the greatest players in the history of the Premiership.

    Is it the tournament format? Squad rotation? Travel or something? I honestly don't get it

  • Deleted user 10 May 2013 09:18:52
    Clubs overseas tend to play a different style, there's also the planning of training etc. around the travel.

    Everton have been in the Europa League so it's irrelevant anyway.
