Why David Moyes’ time is about to run out at Real Sociedad

If there’s any proof that speculation surrounding David Moyes’ potential unemployment is justified, it likely revolves around the numerous votes of confidence he’s received in recent days. It’s a well-known sporting trope, when upper management feels the need to validate your position, it’s likely the beginning of the end. Recently, both Real Sociedad club president Jokin Aperribay and sporting director Loren have publically endorsed Moyes, but with Real Sociedad sitting in 16th place with a mere six points after eight games, even their patience must be running thin. “Moyes is like an old tele, it takes a little while for ...

Louis Van Gaal vs David Moyes at Manchester United After 21 Games [INFOGRAPHIC]

He told us to judge him after three months. Well it’s now been five, and the fact is that there has been little improvement at Manchester United since Louis van Gaal’s arrival at Old Trafford in the summer despite the millions spent by the Dutchman.  If David Moyes’ United had failed to produce a single shot on target, as happened on Sunday in United’s 1-0 home loss to Southampton, Moyes would have been lambasted by the fans and media alike. It appears United’s top four league position is essentially the only thing keeping van Gaal in a job.  Our friends ... Read more

David Moyes Has Brought Immediate Changes To Training At Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad’s new manager David Moyes has wasted no time ringing in the changes at the La Liga club. After overseeing the Spanish side’s last three training last week, Moyes took full control and has immediately put his own stamp on things by scheduling two sessions a day since Monday.
