Panic In Manchester

10 months after replacing the most successful manager in their history, Manchester United has sacked his successor. Manager David Moyes has been given the sack by Manchester United after a very disappointing season.

I can understand why the board of Manchester United made this decision. Manchester United failed to win the Premier League, and will fail to enter the Champions League next season. Also as respected as Moyes is for his work at Everton, he never looked at ease in Manchester. His stifling defensive tactics was at odds with the players at the club and he himself admitted to be taken aback by the sheer scale of the media interest in the club.

The big problem I have is in the timing of the dismissal. Why the hell did they do it now? Manchester United currently lies seventh in the table with only four games remaining. What good will sacking David Moyes do now? If the club was going to sack Moyes, they should do it either weeks ago or at the end of the season when everyone can part ways quietly. What good will it does Manchester United to sack their manger with just 4 games to go in the season?
