Moyes just might be a manager who does his best work as an underdog. So far he's shown no touch for being the manager of a favorite. It hasn't helped that he took over after Fergie's best year coaching. Ferguson relished being the favorite, he used it a hammer.

I've always felt that Man Utd always bring the pressure on themselves. Their fans are a nightmare. Only sing when they are winning and moan their feckin tits off when things aren't going to plan. Even Sir Eck, (04/05 when Chelski won consecutive premierships) was under severe pressure.
The Moyes situation reminds me of Glasgow Rangers when Graeme Souness stepped down and his assistant, Walter Smith took over. Walter didn't get off to the best start. Rangers fans really jumped on his case...... But....., he worked through it and ended up being the best manager in their history.
If I'm honest, I really don't give a shit, but I am hoping the spoilt, whinging faced fannies that are Man Utd fans give Moyes a chance to get things right for them. My minuscule interest stems from him being Scottish....., he just can't be crap!

Moyes will never be the underdog at ManU, they are supposed to challenge for hardware every year. Given his reaction to the go-ahead goal against lowly Fulham, I kinda fear for his health. That much stress will tear a man apart.

He's always had a seriously lined coupon, ...., but must admit, he does look very stressed indeed.

For those of you who are not yet in the "senior" category, save these
suggestions for when you do get there.

Seniors:


Hints on how to liven up your idle hours... To Maintain A Healthy Level Of
Insanity

1. At Lunch Time, Sit In Your Parked Car With Sunglasses on and point a Hair
Dryer At Passing Cars...watch 'em Slow Down!

2. On all your cheque stubs, write ' ForMarijuana'!

3. Skip down the street Rather Than Walk and see how many looks you get.

4. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.

5. Sing Along At The Opera.

6. When The Money Comes Out of The ATM, Scream 'I Won! I Won!'

7. When Leaving the Zoo, start Running towards the Car Park, Yelling 'Run
For Your Lives! They're Loose!'

8. Tell Your Children over dinner: 'Due to the economy, we are going to have
to let one of you go...

And The Final Way To Keep A Healthy Level Of Insanity:

9. PICK UP A BOX OF CONDOMS AT THE PHARMACY, GO TO THE COUNTER AND ASK
WHERE THE FITTING ROOM IS.

I tell you what, I know the majority on here don't care much for soccer, but if you were watching Barcelona right now against Manchester City....., it's just absolutely beautiful. Pretty sure there would be more American soccer fans if the game was played how Barca play. Awesome.

Their will be more when the MLS has play that is closer to the top leagues and a full slate of teams. There needs to be rooting interests.

The EPL is arguably the best league in the world (due to the foreign content) and yet, at times, Barca make City look like school kids.

Two notes from yesterdays games.

a) Have no idea what match Kompany was talking about in his post-game, only reason Barca let them out of their own end was so they had more pitch to work with.
b) Ibra

Yip......, at least after Hibernian were hammered 6-0 by Barca a few years ago, Chris Hogg had the decency to say in his post match interview, "FUCK IT, I'M QUITTING FOOTBALL."
Messi made the poor lad look like a primary one school kid.

Didn't even know it had been drawn! That is a pretty easy group. Is this the tournament that is being played all across Europe rather than in one or a couple of countries?

At least you are guaranteed a competitive game (vs Gibraltar)
