One thing that no one would even try to dispute here at the Football Transfer Tavern is the fact that Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is irreplaceable.
The Scot is arguably the best manager of all-time, building up a dynasty at Manchester United that cannot be recreated. Now it seems that the latest viral our punters have found demonstrates exactly that point.
The image we have in front of us shows that even iPhones agree! There can be no replacement for the Scotsman – and doesn’t David Moyes know it.
After struggling in his opening couple of months in charge, Moyes faces a crunch clash against Liverpool in the Capital One Cup tonight. Should he fail to guide United through to the next round, one thing is clear – the pressure will be on, and massively.
Fans are aware that Fergie cannot be imitated, but they will be expecting a manager who can navigate the big games. Considering the side went to pieces against Manchester City with the absence of Robin van Persie, and are missing him again tonight, Moyes will be right up against it once more.
Potentially losing to Liverpool twice in the space of a month, let alone adding to the loss against City is not something that any United manager would find easy but for one so new, it would be a nightmare.
Should the recent results have occurred under the reign of Fergie, his presence alone would have made fans feel a little easier about matters. Moyes has none of that. He can’t even seem to deliver the hairdryer effectively!
