Nobody can disagree that it has been a poor season for Manchester United and it is hard to see a way that it can improve.

David Moyes has taken a fair bit of stick since taking charge but surely the players need to be held accountable as some of them have massively disappointed.

Saying that, Moyes’s tactics have been baffling at times and he seems to play a certain shape and style just to accommodate players who seem to square pegs in round hols.

Here is why we think United need a new man ahead of next season:

Transfer business has been poor

Marouane Fellaini – enough said.

The Belgian defines the term panic buy and after failing to get his main summer transfer targets, Moyes simply dived in with an expensive, bad decision.

Juan Mata arrived in January, again for a lot of money, and he simply wasn’t the sort of player United needed with central midfield and defence the issues.

Tactically inept

Today against Liverpool summed up United under Moyes.

The central area in midfield was open and the wingers were not in the game. You can’t help but feel another manager would have seen that and not simply fielded a certain side based on reputation.

It seems as though the players are either being fed bad information or are simply ignoring what Moyes says.

The fans are starting to turn

The most important part of a football club are its supporters and when they are not happy, the whole club is worse place to be.

There is no doubt that the fans at Old Trafford welcomed Moyes and have stuck by him, but with a massive rival defeat today coupled with possibly/probably going out of the Champions League in midweek it is starting to turn.

God knows what sort of state the fans will be in after the Manchester derby next week.
