Same BBB.... something ain't right at their place ! (lol)
Still think the guy Moyes IS a decent manager... WHO KNOWS the HOLD Alex had with that squad.... but they seem a bad lot now... that's for sure.... Man City ftw ! (or maybe Arsenal)

So far :)
Anyone who thought the transition would be seamless is either drunk or from a different planet... or both.
I think Moyes will be fine, but my only concern is [Moyes] having Albert Steptoe as one of his assistants.
So far it has been a crazy start to the season. Who'd have thought the red side of N. London would sweep allcomers aside? Certainly not me.

Man Utd seem to 'suck' at the moment...is it Mr Moyes tactics or does it go beyond this ....... ?
He was a right decent manager at Everton.... so what's went wrong #?
Man Utd were not an especially good team last season. They won the league through a combination of poor or underachieving opponents and Fergie maximising their quality. Moyes is a good manager, but seamless transitions at any club are difficult. This is even more the case at MU because of all that comes with it, rather than less so because of their quality players. Like at any club, Moyes has to get to know his players, adapt tactics and adapt players to the system.
The real problem is the team have gone backwards in two ways. Firstly, a lot of the existing players are playing worse than last year: RVP has ceased to be injury free, Ferdinand is past it, Vidic and Jones are making mistakes, Young is abysmal, Cleverley has been found out. Secondly, they have failed to improve the squad. This was City's problem last season, but this year everyone around Utd has spent money, mostly pretty wisely. Failure to capture players is a combination of things, but changes in the boardroom are probably the biggest factor. Either way, a not-great team has been overtaken.
The question is, how many teams have overtaken them? Given Liverpool's form and an exciting strike partnership (remember when every team had one of those? For those interested, read a copy of 'Inverting the Pyramid' re football tactics over the years), there definitely seems to be a top five. Could Utd finish fifth of those five?

They aren't terrible, but they have lost the Fergie factor which means influence, fear factor and 2 miinutes of stoppage time a game! They are getting old and need a major overhaul. I see them going the same way as Liverpool in the early 90s (with any luck).
The very fact they gave Nani another contract is telling. Other than Giggs and Carrick they have an awful midfield, and Giggs is almost drawing his pension.
It's the first year for many I have genuinely believed we (Liverpool) will finish above them...and will do for the foreseeable! :)P
