Premiership Preview: Manchester United

Manchester United.

Positives: A new era , a new dawn. Nearly every United from my generation at least would not have know another manager running them and now David Moyes has the unenviable task of following Sir Alex Ferguson who in this era is the most successful club manager of all time. The positive is that the club and Sir Alex himself will give him the full backing he needs even if he starts off slow in his job. He still has all the Premiership winning team on his books that ran away with the league last season so that is a solid foundation to start.

Negatives: The Wayne Rooney saga has not helped things. I do not think Rooney was the player he was a couple of seasons ago but United would rather keep him then say see him to Chelsea for example but with no bids coming from some of the bigger clubs in Europe for example United are going to be stuck with an unhappy player which also might disrupt the dressing room. They have not made a signing yet which would help Moyes and the squad in the way Robin Van Persie did last season for Sir Alex. There is still time to go with the central midfield maybe a winger and another forward the priority for David Moyes. With Moyes at the helm there are so many questions that he needs to answer the main one being can he handle the pressure of managing a huge club like Manchester United? It will be fascinating to watch that is for sure.
