Manchester United

Moyes was “amateurish” and “embarassing”

Red Rants at related • 1 view

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".

Nani has spoken out in favour of David Moyes, claiming he's received a much-needed confidence boost since the Scotsman replaced Sir Alex Ferguson in July.

Timely though the confidence boost might have been, United are still to reap the benefits, with Nani starting only five Premier League games this season and, much like fellow wingers Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young, failing to impress this season.

Manchester United's manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, doesn't seem to believe that Manchester Roberto Mancini already gave up on chasing the premier league title and isn't considering the upcoming derby as an important fixture.

Ferguson simply think that Mancini is just doing some mind game with the purpose to take the pressure away from City players and transferred them on United's shoulders, a very common thing that usually happen during direct title battles.

Liverpool may well have won the Carling Cup, this season, but how long does veteran manager, Kenny Dalglish, have to turn things around at Anfield, as the now-former member of the ‘Big Four' continues to struggle in the Premier League?

The Scot still enjoys a legendary status in the Red-half of Merseyside for being one of the best players in the club's history, but his recent stint as manager has been testing the patience of even the most loyal of Dalglish supporters - and the most accomodating of fans enjoying some football betting.

It only took two thirds of the Premier League season but Kenny Dalglish finally seems to have recognized the error of his ways in continuing to play Charlie Adam, opting to drop him for the second match running whilst also showing none of the previous sentiment he had shown to Jordan Henderson, who was also resigned to a place on the bench.
