Could Man Utd Boss David Moyes Still Be Searching For Right Balance?

Manchester United boss David Moyes could still be searching for the right balance after Shakhtar Donetsk coach Mircea Lucescu suggested rotation should be blamed for United poor form.


They face Shakhtar in the Champions League on Wednesday after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat by West Brom signalled their worst league start in 24 years.

“We will be looking for a balance of experience and youth,” said Moyes, 50.

“We will be trying to introduce new young players at the right times but also rely a lot on the great experience many of the players have at Manchester United.”

United travel to the Donbass Arena after three defeats in their opening six Premier League games of the season as they make a fresh start following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.

They began their Champions League campaign with a 4-2 defeat of Bayer Leverkusen, while their hosts on Wednesday beat Real Sociedad 2-0.

Shakhtar are third in the Ukrainian Premier League having secured three successive domestic doubles.


  • The truth is that Moyes lacks the competence to manage an outfit like ManU. His ultimate goal while at Everton was not to win triphies but to ensure the team remains in the premiership. A Coach of that status cannot manage a team whose target every season are trophies.
    How much time does Pep Guardiola needed to be winning matches at Bayern? Ancellotti is a new coach at Real Madrid. Martimo is new at Bercelona and so is Laurent Blanc at PSG. Each week, they are turning in good results. What magic does Moyes’s successor at Everton use to remain unbeaten since the begining of the season. Mourihno may not be winning all the matches but there is evidence his team is a title contender this season. ManU won the League last season with the players Moyes inherited. Non of them has been sold. There is even an addition to the squad in Fellaini which he wasted resources to bring from his former club. This is the same ManU that is becoming a weakling under an incompetent Trainer. Give the team to a coach in the class of Pep, Mourihno and the likes and it will suprise everyone what that same team can do. Moyes, with due respect to him is simply incompetent.
