PICTURE: Manchester United really are the new Everton

by Sam Peoples

Some fans who were against David Moyes’ appointment as Manchester United manager feared that he could bring us down to Everton’s level after he brought his coaching staff and philosophies from Goodison Park over to Old Trafford.

Unfortunately, 29 games in, those fears have been vindicated.

Take a look at where United are after 29 games this season in comparison to where Everton were last year under Moyes – the only thing different about the two records is a solitary goal less conceded by United. They are mirror images of one another.


United have certainly lost their attacking flair this season (we’ve scored as many home goals [18] as Fulham have) apart from a few impressive performances sandwiched between the more regular, poor ones we have seen – but to see the comparison with Everton last year side by side isn’t good, at all. All we need is for Moyes to ask for Old Trafford to be re-named Goodison Park by the looks of it.

Unfortunately, Moyes has given fans very few reasons to believe that he can turn it around this season and show why he deserves the job but winning later today against Olympiacos will grant him some time and respite.
