Thank you, David Moyes. It's not something most Manchester United fans ever thought they would say, given the horrendous season the Scot oversaw at our club. Still, I'll say it again. Thank you, David Moyes.

There were points, last season, when it felt like United were in danger of spiralling into irrevocable decline.

Rio Ferdinand has hit out at David Moyes for trying to impose a vision on United, despite the Scotsman, who was also lambasted for adopting "embarrassing" tactics, himself not being too clear about the plan.

Ferdinand returned to Old Trafford on Sunday after leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer, having brought a 10-year career at United to an end in disappointing fashion as the club endured an absolute nightmare of a season under the former Everton manager, who was criticised by Ferdinand for creating a "bad vibe".

Wilf Zaha had a fairly miserable time in his first year as a Manchester United player. Having been signed by Sir Alex Ferguson in the January before he retired, David Moyes clearly wasn't a fan of the young winger and barely played him.

Louis van Gaal has sent Zaha on loan to the club we bought him from, Crystal Palace, but the player hasn't given up on a United future.

August for Manchester United didn't go as expected –but then it sort of went exactly as expected, in the back of our minds, at least since David Moyes made it his mission to make us all a little more humble. It turns out that, yes, there would be no quick fix. Even the manager says it'll take three months before it finally starts to click.

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

At the beginning of last season, the average tenure of a manager in the Premier League was 2 years and 2 months. This is comparable with the tenure of managers in Serie A and La Liga, and slightly less than the tenure of a coach in the Bundesliga. What this means to a soccer fan of a top flight club is that your team, no matter where the club is in the table, has a good chance of turning over management every three years.
