As said, the only way he is going is if he has the sort of run that takes us down the table and then it would be a panick move.
We are stuck with him and at best the lottery of the play offs.
At least some people are more than happy with that.

I, on the othet hand, happen to agree with points one and two made by CL.  It would take a terrible run of form for him to be sacked any time soon and like CL I think we could be looking at the plays offs at best now.  I think it will take a fairly long run of wins to get us up in automatic mix and then another to see us over the line.  As for point 3, as long as we are in the play off mix then he deserves to be in the job.

I want us to go up automatically like we did last time. I'd rather not go through the anguish of the play offs but if it came to it, i'd take it.

At least if the worst happens, we won't be getting David Moyes any time soon.

Out of interest how long is his contract? Did he sign a rolling deal?

I think it's six months initially. So I guess we could get him in the Summer. *Shudders*

David Moyes? The mind boggles as to how anybody thinks he’d be the answer. Unless the question is “what manager would guarantee us relegation?”

There were still plenty of people wanting him last summer before RDM and again before we signed Bruce, no amount of failure will overshadow what he did at Everton in some eyes.

That said he's the exact sort of lazy appointment I'd have expected if we had got rid of Bruce in the summer so anything that takes people like him off the market is good news.

I like Moyes. And in this day and age of footballers with over inflated ego's and bad attitudes then Moyes makes more sense to me. He did an amazing job for Everton. Difficult situation to be going into Man U after Ferguson and Sunderland was a complete shit show

Moyes does best on a tight budget.  With a bit of luck he will get through a ton of the porno dwarves' money.

Apparently his attitude was pretty poor in Spain, made no effort to integrate into the local culture.
