    Who else is there ? Can only think of Klopp and dunno if he is that keen to leave Dortmund right now as he said for a german in England, it will be very tough some time last year IIRC + he changes the whole structure wherever he goes and has worked with a Sporting director at Dortmund.
    Where did Moyes even get his youth development reputation? I count Osman and Rooney as the only two youth products he's brought through in eleven years.

    Coleman, Barkley,Rodwell, Anichebe etc just off the top of my head... there have been a few more too. Plus he has given chances to others too from whatever he has had coming up.

    He's not the best in this regard, but Mourinho is completely short term.

    Can you really see Mourinho sticking with Welbeck while he is scoring 1 goal a season ? He'll probably want to buy a replacement for his 3 year cycle. Evans had 2 years where he was bullied a bit. Fletcher was only decent till he became very good.

    Plus with Mourinho, though he seems a good guy it's all about him. And he falls out at almost every club and leaves the team with no long term planning.

    I won't mind Mourinho tbh, but i can see where the club are coming from in this regard.

    In shock tbh.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Rodwell, Anichebe and Vaughan would have been good had he not been injury prone.

    At least it'll probably be goodbye to posers like Valencia, Nani and Anderson.

    As long as they keep Cleverley, I'll be happy.

    This will be weird. He's been manager for my entire lifetime. The idea of us without Ferguson just seems wrong.

    Don't want Moyes at all, pretty worried about this.

    Haha well for all his faults he's quite clearly a much better manager than Moyes.

    Looks like they've gone with Moyes. Balls. Beginning of the end of United's era of dominance I reckon.

    Don't think it's quite that bad. Too much stuff is different in this case from how it was when Liverpool's era of dominance ended.

    Not a fan of the appointment at all, that said.

    Wasn't my first preference, but don't mind Moyes.

    He won't have to make any changes to the management structure too plus Sir Alex rates him highly.

    It struck me that none of the ex-Fergie players who have previously been mentioned as replacements are remotely in the frame nowadays - Keane, Hughes & Robson to name but three.

    Kudos to Ferguson, anyway. We won't see his like again.

    Sky reporting that an announcement on United's next manager will be made in next 48 hours so yeah, everything pointing to Moyes.

    I can't believe "Mourinho or Moyes" is an actual debate. And they've gone with Moyes. You'd think "has vast experience of winning trophies" would be more important than "has similar accent".
