David Moyes disappoints in transfer window

David MoyesDavid Moyes endured a difficult and disappointing time in his first transfer window as manager of Manchester United, leading to calls for the 50-year-old to be given the chop. Moyes' hesitant and unconvincing actions raised more than a few worried eyebrows amongst United supporters, with #moyesout trending on Twitter on Monday afternoon. Meanwhile Sky Bet have reacted by cutting his odds to 20/1 in the Premier League Sack Race, while Paddy Power now price the former Everton boss at just 16/1.

In the end United only secured the services of Marouane Fellaini, with whom Moyes worked with at Everton. The Red Devils left it uncharacteristically late to snap up the Belgian, splashing out an inflated £27.5m for a player with no Champions League experience.

Moyes was expected to make a marquee signing but instead endured a frustrating summer, missing out on the likes of Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas, Leighton Baines, Sami Khedira and Ander Herrera. However, on the plus side they did hold on to Wayne Rooney.

Moyes will be slammed for his naivety, while many critics will question whether he has what it takes to be successful at the defending Premier League champions, especially considering United’s average start. Moyes may have opened the campaign with an electric 4-1 victory at Swansea, but United have since played out an uninspiring goalless draw against Chelsea, which was followed by a 1-0 defeat at Liverpool. Next up is Crystal Palace after the international break, with a mouth-watering match-up against fierce rivals Man City stamped in for 22 September.
