Has The Tide Turned On David Moyes At Manchester United?

With a 3-0 loss at Old Trafford to Liverpool, the job security of David Moyes is now under question. During the post match show on the NBC Sports Network one of the pundits openly called for him to be sacked. The storm died down a bit on Monday but this Tuesday morning there are multiple reports from ESPN, Goal and the Telegraph that the Manchester United board and even Sir Alex Fregusen himself has lost confidence in the former Everton manager. Moyes is on the record saying in the past week that the job of being Manchester United’s manager was “harder than he thought”. Purely based on sporting and football factors one can make the strong case that Moyes should be sacked but the decision those in charge at Old Trafford face have a political nature as well.

Can the board really sack Moyes who was hand picked by Sir Alex less than one season into his tenure? Such a move would be a clear admission that the board and Sir Alex himself made a major mistake in appointing the Scotsman. Such an admission could potentially harm the reputation of Sir Alex in the long term if he himself is not Moyes’ replace wither in the short term or long term. Ferguson coming back to take charge of the club is not as wild of an idea as one would think. Ferguson can be seen in the stands at most of the Red Devil’s matches so taking over for the last few fixtures of the season wouldn’t be that big of a stretch. I’m not so sure a move at this point in the season would have much impact though. Manchester United face an almost impossible task at this point to win the current Champions League competition or to qualify for next year’s edition being 12 points back with just nine league matches left.

One thing is for certain the tide of public opinion has shifted on Moyes and the next three fixtures very well could decide his fate. Out of Olympiakos at home, West Ham away and the Manchester Derby at home in the next seven days he probably needs at least two wins to stay in charge because he has lost the support of the Manchester United faithful and perhaps even the board. The only question then becomes, is it to late to make a move this season or should Manchester United wait until the summer?
