Have reopened this thread as a new one primarily due to amount of page breaks from old one.

I was tempted to not to open another but resisted as this offers an outlet for a number of our contributors. Please keep it friendly and enjoy.

So how do you think David Moyes is feeling tonight?

But Moyes is a good manager. Can utd failings be placed at his door?
I mean he did well at Everton. They were always there abouts with his funding, although they do seem to be doing better this season.
I feel sorry for moyes. Still if he's sacked he can always come to spurs!!!
Funny innit the managers get sacked get a payout and walk into another job.... What other job does that happen???

Senior lecturers, Lead social workers who fail the public in high profile cases,failing Headmasters.....I could go on. The higher up the greasy pole you are the more chance of someone else in another corporation taking you on.

Moyes 11 years at Goodison seemed to show he was a good gaffer but whether he has the va va va voom of his replacement or even his replacements replacement at Wigan is another thing.

I really rate both Martinez and Rossler.

Still bad gaffer or not the monies pretty good (if not the results) and if he does get the tin tack he could ask AVB for some advice,he's never out of work for long.

What this forum really needs is a 'Chelsea till I Die' thread.

This thread could then be renamed 'other football teams'.

Would that be the white stick used by all the referees Chelsea have, according to their wonderful manager, setting such a good example to their assistant manager?

I think I said Borini by mistake in a post on the other thread. It was of course Altidore who won the penalty. Borini just finished the job.

Neil Ashton in the Mail is actually quite good on the match and the attitude that seems to come from the manager. Martin Samuels in the same paper however has swallowed the Chelsea party line on FFP hook, line and sinker. His latest attempt is to claim that FFP prevents teams like Southampton from adding some top players to their youth products in order to make a real challenge. That would be the same Southampton that was in administration a few years back through living beyond its means. Samuels also misses the point that it the huge wages that sugar daddy clubs pay force others either to pay similar to keep their players (which most cannot afford unsubsidised) or sell their top players. Where has the guy been while Chelsea and City have been operating unconstrained?

Of course the huge difference between income from the CL and for anything else had been having similar effects on a smaller scale for some years previously, but on a smaller scale. The real revolution would be for a large chunk of that income to be distributed amongst the poorer clubs on which the richer clubs depend and feed. But that would be akin to the socialist approach to sport in America, where they realise that they are mutually dependent.

BBC 5 Live say they are hearing David Moyes has been sacked by Man U.

Even I know this is important.

Moyes was always stuck between a rock and a hard place. Ferguson knew the squad was on it's last legs and was propped up by the Gooner Van Persie last year.

So jumped ship quickly ala the Titanic. Jol anybody? I have heard he is good. Not around CC though.

Chris Adams is available. Then there is (or soon will be) Tim Sherwood. Can't help thinking that any top manager eyed up by Spurs might look at Old Trafford instead. Moyes to Tottenham? Doesn't sound so good now but a couple of years back it would have been seen as a good appointment I think.

I seem to remember a Spurs-Man U match at the Lane at the end of Fergie's first (or perhaps second) year. The victory for Spurs was ridiculously easy. Famously, they stuck with him (thanks to a fortune-favoured Cup run and win). I know that doesn't mean that all boards should stick with all managers, but there is so little time allowed these days.

Official statement from Man U is that there will be no official statement.

But various online sources reckon he's a gonner.

I have a friend who is an ardent Everton fan who was astonished that Man U appointed Moyes. Although obviously Moyes had done well in his time at Everton, she felt that his negativity and limited ambition meant that he could not take the club any further (rather than that he had outgrown the club and was ready for a bigger challenge).

To me there were worrying signs of a parochial attitude from the word go, as demonstrated by the replacement of the (very successful) Man U backroom staff with his staff from Everton and the obsession with bringing in Everton players - whereas Baines would have been a good addition, did anyone apart from Moyes ever think that Fellaini would be a good buy? The joke is that Fellaini had a buy-out clause of £24m but Man U ended up paying £28m for him because they thought they could get him on the cheap and waited until the clause had expired.

As for the size of the pay-off Moyes will receive - well, that's what happens when you give a manager a six year contract, and that's probably the only thing keeping Pardew in his job.

If Moyes is a goner from Manure and Spurs miss out on signing Louis Van Gall due to him going to the reds instead of the Lane I shall be seriously peed off that our penny pinching Chairman has once again stitched us up for the sake of a few quid. LVG's signature should have been on a long term contract months ago,work to commence after the World Cup.

Nice but dim Sherwood is being tipped for the Newcastle job,my condolances to the good people of Toon town .

After a couple of back to back wins, FFc fell by the wayside at WHL.

The one v Norwich I viewed from the Directors seats with hospitiality in the George Cohen Lounge.

Food was excellent and George a very good host. This was compliments of Club Wembley who had a table.

A pretty even 1st half but did not do enough in the 2nd, where for periods Spurs dominated.

Has to be said that Hugo Lloris (played well at CC as well) had a big hand in that, saving a rocket header from Hugo Rodallego from the edge of the 18 yard box plus a pen from Sidwell.

We also clipped the post.

Eriksen's dead ball kicking was the diff. I did'nt quite agree with Sherwood's quote ' that with due respect to Fulham, we dominated the game'.

Not true 1st half, some validity in the 2nd.

Afterwards had a few drinks with Spillage at his Totti club and had a chat with a Spurs/Middle fan to boot. Interesting.

Made up for a not good day footiewise.
