Market talk on the New York stock exchange that Moyes is to leave Man Utd by mutual consent

View Comments

I will post more when I hear more.

Update 12.58: At the moment the rumours are still unconfirmed. They’ve come from trading desks in the US and are probably not having the same effect over there than they do here in the UK. Until I get further confirmation we should just treat them like all market chatter.

  1. @ Tony no doubt Utd are a commercial entity and money making machine, however I refer to the utd ethic of bringing up home grown talent, fergies fledglings a joy to watch in full flow.

    Not a penny paid as signing on fee’s for any of them.

    Chelsea & city have not produced a crop like that.

  2. @Andy B

    United poached all of them players. Ryan Giggs would have been at Man City had Ferguson not literally turned up at his door.

  3. @Someone

    Take it your a City boy, its a poor excuse that Utd ‘poached’ those players. If Utd didnt ‘poach’ those players whose to say they would have been the same players they are/were today? City did not have the infrastructure to nurture such talent, and no doubt when the wealth came in they would have been cast off into the transfer market to make way for already established stars. So its probably the best thing that Utd ‘poached’ these stars as ‘the golden generation’ of Utd most likely would not have been in the history books.

    2) Utd ‘poached’ them young therefore it was Utd’s youth, not City’s. Unless football clubs have a hospital wing where they deliver babies straight from birth to nurture them into football players, i dont think you can use the word ‘poached’ like you have. At the end of the day youth players have to come from somewhere, whether it is from your local football club or a high profile club.

  4. Well said Josh – also the way utd played and gelled as such a unit during that Golden era. Giggs, Keane , Scholes & Beckham what a midfield. They would pull teams apart at will with telepathic understanding and what a pure joy it was. The beautiful game doesn’t get better than that to watch.

    Chelsea & City are good put don’t have a patch on that utd side for excitement. The reason being that utd side was built and developed to gel together as a team. Not just go out and buy a few stars pay them loads and hope for the best the way its done these days.

    This is the difference between building a side ( years & patience) and buying a side.

    Barcelona have done a similar thing developing home grown talent and look how they gel as a unit.

    Moyes has to build and mold again it will take time just the way it took Fergie time.
