Reversal of Fortune?

With the Glazers' Keystone Kops approach to handling a delicate situation across at the Swamp, every possible source has been tapped for his input on "where it all went wrong". Ex- players, sacked coaches, prehistoric former Managers and, err... Eamonn Holmes have commented on the "disastrous" rule of a certain football genius. I am fully expecting George Best's opinion to arrive shortly, via seance.

Every Red I know - and some of them actually GO to games - has despised Moyes, virtually from the outset of his reign. Several of them wanted Fergie out after the 6-1 and are so angry at him for bringing in Moyes as The Chosen One, that they seem to have forgotten that he was the most successful manager in English football. Ever.

My own thoughts are that Beaker was on a hiding to nothing, taking on the Manager's job immediately after McTwattie retired. Getting out of his Muppets contract was difficult enough - but being the man who follows a legend is rather like being the man who follows a diarrhoea-riddled horse: eventually, all the s**t WILL land on you.

With no European football for at least one season, a record low in victories, fewest points scored, a striker owning a BUPA Gold Card and a massive transfer outlay ahead, you may feel that things are a bit rocky at OT - but not a word of it! Following Moyes departure, share values INCREASED by $150m on the Stock Market. It appears that failure pays better than success. Go figure.
