Back to the future?
It's either Back to the future - or start again and make a few decisions that Fergie is nowhere near.
I've been desperate all season long for David Moyes to be a success at Utd.
Who knows - he might be yet, but I'm now very much of the opinion that it's not going to happen for him.
Utd have to change it, or they will very soon be in that wilderness that Brendan Rodgers was talking about before the game at Old Trafford.
Again, I repeat, I'm not jumping on anybody's bandwagon here. I've been voicing my doubts about Utd and the direction they've been heading in all season long.
Τhe only new thing we learned on Sunday was what Moyes regards as his best X1. He started it.
Same as the week before but with Vidic for Smalling. Not good enough. Nowhere near good enough. Carrick and Fellaini in midfield?
Sorry. Neither is ever going to hurt you. Fellaini is not a Utd player and I've never understood the fuss about Carrick. Neat and tidy yes.
But when have you ever seen him boss a game like Scholes? Keane? Robson? Wilkins? He's not good enough at the top level either.
Utd have had a problem in midfield since Barcelona took them apart in Rome. Fergie failed to address it.
Bringing Paul Scholes out of retirement wasn't the answer. Nor was Anserson, Bebe, Cleverly or Jones. Nor is Fellaini or Mata.
Liverpool ran rings round Utd. The game has moved on beyond Fergie's bullying. You can't run a team like he used to anymore.
I stand by what I said months ago. They're eight short. How many transfer window's is it going to take to get anywhere near that?
And how much? I'm told they're going to spend £200m in the summer. On players? How much more will it cost to pay them?
Does that figure include wages? If so, what do they get for half that figure?
Edison Cavani is a done deal - if they can persuade him to sign. It'll cost £80m to get him out of PSG.
But will he want to join a team that might not even be playing Europa Lge football?
If Utd weren't in crisis they very nearly are.
They were awful against Lpool. Watching, it struck me that Moyes hasn't got enough of the team 'with him'.
I was told months ago that there's an 'us v them' attitude about Carrington. Red v blue. Utd v Everton. Well now it looks that way on the pitch.
The Glazers can't let this go on. Something has got to give. I'm afraid that 'something' is Moyes.
So it's either back to the future - Ryan Giggs (read my previous blogs), or they try again.
And this time keep Fergie away from the decision making, the team coach and the tunnel. His ego cost them Mourinho. Don't let it happen again.
