The last record Moyes broke at Manchester United was a bad one

by Sam Peoples

For the first time since 1990, Manchester United didn’t have one player in the PFA Team of the Year.

Last season, Manchester United had four players in the XI including Robin van Persie and Michael Carrick but after this season, not one United player was chosen.

No outfield Manchester United player deserved to get into the team but David de Gea‘s outstanding performances week in week out, despite how poor his team mates were playing, saw him installed as the favourite only for Chelsea’s Petr Cech to be named instead.

David Moyes broke plenty of records this season but this one embodies everything that has gone wrong.

There’s no two ways about – this season has been an abomination of cataclysmic proportions and having no players in the Team of the Year shows how far we fell.

This weekend’s performance under the stewardship of Ryan Giggs saw Manchester United play without shackles, which was both wonderful and sad to see.

Wonderful because we’ve still got that performance in this squad of players, sad because Moyes couldn’t get the players to do that once at Old Trafford all year.

Pretty much everything about this season is going to be a stain on United’s history but hopefully now that Moyes’ period is in the past, it will only be a temporary blip.
