Sir Alex Ferguson looked on from the stands yesterday as Liverpool systematically took Manchester United apart for 90 minutes in a 3-0 whitewash that could so easily have been four or five.
His expression of dismay summed it all up – bewildered and flabbergasted. There’s no other way to describe the performance because no fan could believe what they were watching.
The only reason David Moyes got the Manchester United job was because Sir Alex Ferguson recommended him. The only reason David Moyes has still got the Manchester United job is because Sir Alex Ferguson recommended him.
Ferguson made plenty of mistakes in his career as United manager but he reacted with a lot of them and made changes. As it stands, the recommendation to appoint Moyes without so much as an interview is looking like one of the biggest mistakes he ever made.
How long does Ferguson remain stubborn and support Moyes? He is watching him take apart nearly 30 years of work piece by piece like a Jenga tower.
