Feel free to add, but I thought it would be useful to have a running list of events since Moyes has started, and that he has been faced with. You might not agree with all of them but for me I've broken them down into positive/not so positive sections, and they can of course change. Arguably Positive Says Rooney not for sale and good relationship £12m Baines bid (at this price I would suggest represents value) Positive steps in making Giggs and Neville coaches (maintain the knowledge and experience of success) Zaha will get chances (looks like a player that could make a difference, makes sense to use him) Arguably Not so Positive René Meulensteen not convinced to stay on after so much positive talk about him from players over the last couple of years. Eric Steele not convinced to stay on after so much positive talk around De Gea and learning Spanish. Possibly upsetting the apple cart in an unnecessary way. No conversation to be had over renewing Rooney's contract, adding risk to us losing him at a stupidly low value, similar to what happened with Berbatov. Failure to convince Scholes to be a coach straight away. Completely fair point that Scholes wanted a break and knowing Scholes no one would have changed his mind. So it goes on this list, but not a biggy. Statement of unlimited budget (great to give the fans something to be excited about, but bound to slow negotiations for players if the other club feels we have plenty of funds to pay more!) Singha All-Stars 1 - 0 Manchester United. May just be a pre-season friendly and the first of them and may have been with a lot of younger players, but this was Moyes first game in charge and as such it would have been nice to get a win and show a statement of intent. Instead we went out with a whimper and just a couple of players showing glimpses of potential. However, potential is often not enough when what we really want is quality ready to get first team starts (see point below!). ThiagOFF! Yes there may be the Pep factor, but there are always factors and you have to convince someone why they should sign for you and no one else. Thiago looks far more ready for our first team than any of our young midfielders. For new people reading this thread This is not supposed to be a critical assessment or a reason to beat Moyes with a stick, it's supposed to be a general view of how things are going week to week with this being an ongoing thread, not a point in time thread. By all means debate what is positive and what is not, for example new coaches could be a good or bad thing depending on how you view it. I guess you could call this a thread of, here is something that has happened and here is how I would have done it differently or how I think things could have better panned out. Sometimes it will be speculation and sometimes hard facts, thus please take it in context of what is mentioned.
