Bobby Charlton - My Manchester United Years





“It has also been suggested that David sent out United to play negatively, defensively. I watched them against Everton and it wasn’t like that — they were so expansive and it lost them the game in the finish when Everton hit them on the counter-attack. It was similar when they went to Chelsea. David’s record at Everton also seems to have been misrepresented. Yes, Roberto Martinez has done terrifically well in his first season there but people shouldn’t forget that David helped guide Everton into Europe and reach a cup final despite having to sell some of his best players. He delivered a transfer net profit consistently and Everton finished in the top eight in each of his last seven seasons at Goodison Park. If you look at the business model, there is no better manager than David Moyes. He has gone but doesn’t responsibility also lie with some of those still at the club? Whoever they are, shouldn’t they be looking at themselves and feeling they have let David down?”
