Manchester United have not had the start to the season they would have wanted. Labouring past Sunderland and losing to West Bromwich Albion were not exactly in the mandate. Not to mention the thrashing in the Manchester derby.
All in all, David Moyes is facing a growing amount of pressure. Fans and the media are not impressed and hardly being quiet about it.
As our landlord notes, you can’t really expect anything different. United are often held up as the ones to beat – for the other title contenders. Not for clubs hoping to get into the Europa League. Ninth in the table was not the mandate given to Moyes that is for sure.

In a throwback to another era, he has come up with five players that the club could do with being back in their team right now.
