Events at Tampa prove Glazers won't hesitate to shatter Moyes' dreams
Stick or twist? Should the Glazers get rid of David Moyes and abort his United career now or do they believe that stability (and Moyes) will eventually produce results of the kind that Old Trafford has become accustomed to?
There are increasingly compelling arguments to sack Moyes, but the obvious counter is that he hasn't been given time to shape this squad and team yet.
Whatever the arguments, the most important decision makers will be the family who stand to gain and lose the most from Moyes' tenure. The Glazers have spent the last week basking in the glow of a positive coaching appointment as they presented Lovie Smith to the fans of their American Football franchise the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
