60 Minute Moyes Madness!

Gone. Moyes leaves United after 60 minutes in charge.

Sir Alex Ferguson's successor and fellow Scotsman, David Moyes, has already been kicked out of the United setup after just 60 minutes, all of which were spent discussing where Moyes wanted to take the club, which were described by Ed Woodward as 'outrageous' and 'pathetic'.

The ex-Preston North-End and Everton manager has not yet spoken aloud with his side of the story, although it is highly doubted he will until the embarrassing dismissal moves along with the times.

Manchester United currently find themselves in a tricky situation, they are manager-less, and a £30,000,000 move for current Chelsea midfield maestro Juan Mata is still waiting to be confirmed. The board have resisted the temptation to take their preferred action on the matter, (no pun intended) and have stated they will wait for the next manager to make a decision.

To add to the Red Devils' problems, the staff that David Moyes had brought with him from Everton, are also close to leaving with who they have always seen as 'boss'. This means who ever walks in to this impossible job, has a few other issues to deal with.

That word 'issue' is imagined by many to be one word that has filled the private meeting rooms between Manchester United owners and other representatives, with players in particular becoming an extreme issue in the sense that the gap between the young players, and the experienced is far to big, and far to empty for any success to be furthered in the 2013/14 campaign.

Manchester United are slowly creeping into a position that clubs try their best to stay away from, as search for the real chosen one continues.
Moyes is gone.. nooo :( now replace him with Roberto Martinez -_-)
Really enjoyed your previous United story, and this one is already amazing as Moyes has gone already!
Glad to see you back! Good luck :)
Glad to see you back, and good luck with United! Nice word play for the chose one and your name is TCO :PP
EdenHazard17: Sorry again :p & Yeah I'm sure he'd do better than Moyes now :'D

Josh7798: Cheers bud, & ahaha yeah suppose it does make it good already :P

pompeyblue: Cheers man!

Pauker: Thanks mate, & didn't realize I'd done that actually ahaha :P

United search for new manager continues.

Search for the successor. Jurgen Klopp linked with United vacancy.

With the new Premier League season lurking in the not so distant future of manager-less Manchester United, odds on the next manager to try tackling the impossible job set by the man himself, Sir Alex Ferguson, are all that’s been circulating over the past few days. Close sources have said that Sir Alex himself will make a wondrous comeback, and carry on his reign with the Red Devils.

The Manchester United board have not yet spoken out about their replacement, but a press conference with United representatives is to be scheduled soon. Many say that Mourinho could fill in the gap, but the Portuguese manager seems to be on his way to United rivals Chelsea whose current boss Rafael Benitez, is set for Napoli.

Jürgen Klopp is also another big name heavily involved with a move to Old Trafford as he is not willing to abide by the philosophies in which the Dortmund board have laid down before him. He stated that he does not want to be with a club, who are happy to let go of their best players, when offers of an average value come in. United aren't one of those clubs, and with a huge deal for Juan Mata waiting to go through, Klopp could be a certainty.

Others on the bookies shortlist are Rene Meulensteen, Andres Villas-Boas and current player coach Ryan Giggs.
Good luck with United man :)
uni3s: Cheers bud :)

Klopp rejects Reds as United fill vacancy.

Manager confirmed. Klopp remains Dortmund boss.

Manchester United have released details that lead us to believe a new manager as been found, and appointed. This 'mystery' man is unknown to all journalists leaving everybody clueless as to who he is. Immediately ruled out is Jürgen Klopp, who eventually decided to keep his future at Signal Iduna Park, after being heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.

"Ich möchte nicht der neue Manager von Manchester United sein, aber ich möchte meine aktuelle Manager der Verein unabhängig von den Board-Einstellungen bleiben." Said Klopp after being asked about the speculation.

José Mourinho is another huge name who could be involved with this new story quickly making itself around the globe. Mourinho however is near enough the manager of the team of Stamford Bridge, Chelsea, meaning he is again, another unlikely man for United.

The board of Manchester United have not spoken at all about this matter, and do not wish too until the day he is revealed.

Sources suggest that Manchester United do not currently have a new manager, but are simply calming the nerves of fans, and possibly even the players, about having no manager going into preseason. No players have been to the media to talk about the matter, which would tell us that there is a man behind the walls of Old Trafford.

The story is more likely to develop more over the next few days, but for now, a new man, is, in Manchester.
Good luck mate, it's nice to see you active again B)
2014-03-25 18:39#166061 Stam : Good luck mate, it's nice to see you active again B)

Oh my gosh...Stam commented on your story...

If this story isn't absolutely amazing, you've let us all down :P
