Phil Jagielka: Backing David Moyes to succeed at Manchester United

The ex-Toffees boss Moyes has come under pressure recently, with the Red Devils currently sitting in eighth place in the Premier League.

Jagielka reckons the Scot has had to deal with numerous selection dilemmas and has struggled to find his ideal starting XI.

"It's difficult because it was always going to be the hardest job in the world to go there," he told The Independent.

"He has a young squad and who do you pick? He has probably got 25 (first-team players) and most of them have a value of at least £10m-plus.

"That was always going to be the hard part, to find his squad and find his feet.

"The fixture list was horrific for him. That puts extra pressure in the games that you expect Man Utd to win and they have come unstuck at times."

The former Sheffield United centre-back, expected to feature in next year's World Cup for England, believes that Moyes will be confident in his own ability and will lead United back to the summit of the table.

He said: "He's a great manager and as much as Man Utd won the league everyone expects it is easy to take them to the next level, it is a little bit of a rebuilding session.

"I am sure they will stick with him and if they do so he will be in the job for a long, long time.

"Once things do start clicking, they'll be flying back up the league."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
