Should Moyes Get The Rest Of The Season

It’s been a turbulent season for Manchester United supporters in the 2013/14 season so far under new manager David Moyes. 

Watching Ferguson bid a teary farewell at Old Trafford after lifting yet another league title, the determined Scot urged the supporters to get behind their new manager. And so they did. 

Moyes admitted he had taken on an almost impossible task - replacing arguably the greatest football manager in history, but he was confident that he could continue the success. 

Spirits were high at the start, with United crushing Swansea 4-1 away from home on the opening day of the season - after having won the Community Shield. A strong showing in the UEFA Champions League group stages followed and despite losing 1-0 at bitter rivals Liverpool, the Red Devils triumphed over the Reds in the Capital One Cup soon after. 

Then the ground started to shake, with a 4-1 hammering against City, losses to West Brom, Everton, Newcastle - draws with Southampton and Cardiff. Losing to Swansea at the first hurdle in the FA Cup, and going down to Sunderland in the Capital One Cup semi-final first-leg. 

Despite this, there have been some positive performances and some good results (beating Arsenal, dominating Chelsea only to draw, smashing Bayer Leverkusen 5-0). 

The question is, do United keep the faith and risk a Champions League place or wield the axe and move on?
