Why All The Fuss About David Moyes?

The phone-in on BBC Radio 5 this morning, is about David Moyes and his tenure at Manchester United!

I have been following and watching football for sixty years and I can name probably ten or even twelve very good or great managers, whose successors had problems. Those at the top level, who were followed by one who was equally good are extremely rare and the only one I can name is Bill Shankly at Liverpool.

But it’s not just in football, that the succession is a problem. Look at Kings and Queens, politics, Presidents and prime ministers and business leaders!

The only rule that seems to apply is that the more charismatic the leader, the bigger the problems.

So all those angry Manchester United supporters, should just remember than David Moyes’s problems are par for the course. Especially, when they have the example of Matt Busby.
