Reasons David Moyes Is Underachieving At Manchester United

As much as I applaud Moyes’ ambition in trying to land Cesc Fabregas, Thiago and allegedly Gareth Bale, his decision to bring in Chelsea sub, Juan Mata for a record £37.1 million seems a bit foolish. The Red Devils have an abundance of ‘in the hole’ players including Rooney, Kagawa and even impressive youngster, Adnan Januzaj, who naturally plays behind the striker. Furthermore, with Rooney and van Persie fit, new boy, Mata, is only going to be deployed out wide, where he is not as comfortable. Why spend £37.1 million on a player you are going to use out of position? Sorry Moyes, I’m a big fan but that was not one of your best.
