David Moyes on the brink, as United sponors and business partners disapprove



David Moyes is truly in danger of losing his job soon. This idea has been floated earlier this season, but now it seems like a genuine possibility.

In defense of their top-flight title, Manchester United are currently 18 points off table leaders Chelsea after being soundly beaten 3-0 by their bitterest of rivals, Liverpool on Sunday. I’m not saying that was the straw that broke the camel’s back, but now ESPN is reporting that sources at the club have indicated the possibility of sacking the 50-year-old has been addressed for the first time.

What’s put his job in serious jeopardy now? Money. Manchester United is falling out of favor with newly added sponsors and business partners, who entered into their agreements with the idea that they were signing on with a winner. Instead, they’re becoming associated with a loser. And when David Moyes hurts the club in the pocketbook, then it’s only a matter of time before he’s shown the door.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that the idea of David Moyes being sacked is a very real possibility now.

From Fox Sports:

The club’s owners, the Glazer family, are said to be worried by dismal recent performances and results, and even Sir Alex Ferguson is also suggested to be less supportive of his successor at a boardroom level than in the past.

It is believed the tide began to turn after a number of the club’s sponsors expressed their concerns about their brands being linked with such a calamitous season, with huge sums of money being paid to link with a club with a reputation for ongoing success.


According to sources close to ESPN FC’s Miguel Delaney, the new Manchester United manager is losing support from board members.

Bleacher Report’s Jerrad Peters suggests: “You almost get the feeling Moyes could be gone by the end of the week if Olympiacos scoreline isn’t overturned.”

David Moyes could literally be managing for his job tomorrow.

    Should have been sacked during the winter transfer window. The signs were clear as daylight then. Ed Woody should also be given the boot…he’s reckless comments about no commercial concern speaks for itself when he announced the latest Man U financial year end results.
