Give Davie Moyes a break

Man United supporters need to take a good look at themselves especially those who have yet to learn to win with dignity and more importantly lose with grace.

It was no coincidence that Fergie retired when he did as he knew only too well that there would need to be a rebirth of a new team as the squad he left behind were just not good enough to keep up the winning ways.

He was also shrewd enough to know that it would need a strong man to do the rebuilding so he recommended David Moyes to succeed him. He needed a guy who hated to lose anything let alone a football match and given time Fergie will probably be right as usual.

You only have to look at Davie to notice that he already has a”greetin” face which gets decidedly worse when his team loses. There would be no point in “twittering fans” calling for a change until the manager sorts out the playing side. Face Book fanatics with their abusive comments towards the manager will have to accept that there will not be a quick fix.

The great Fergie took over an ailing club at the start of his reign and it was five years before he won his first trophy. If the board then had bowed to pressure from fans or perhaps the media and appointed someone else during those early years the trophy cabinet would not be as full as it is today.

The older generation of United fans will remember the bad times and appreciate what has been achieved during Fergie’s time. As for the younger ones who have only known the good years should read up on the history of the club which might just help them to grow up, keep their dummies in their mouths and their toys in their prams until Davie has been given a FAIR chance to sort out what could turn out to be a long term problem.

By the way this is genuine sympathy for Moyes from a Liverpool fan given his links to both Everton and United.

Football daft for as long as I can remember. Lifelong Liverpool fan and Socialist. Has actually stood on the Anfield pitch. Played the game, refereed it and reported on it. Best playing time was at under 18 level and enjoyed indoor 5 aside until injury forced me out at 52.
