I know there was surprise back in the fall that MU hadn't scored better in the transfer period. Fellaini came in last minute and overpriced IIRC, giving the impression of a panic move. How much of that was Moyles's fault, who knows. Also if the team was already on the older side an extra year can't help. But clearly he wasn't inspiring the players like Ferguson had. Best of luck to his replacement, it'll be interesting for sure to see if this season is a blip or more prolonged slump for MU.
Meanwhile, hope Arsenal can get the FA Cup win or this will have been a very disappointing season after their strong start. I'm wondering, do they have to finish top 4 above Everton to have any chance of being in the Champions League next season or does 5th allow them a chance to qualify? From what I understand, they've made it the last 16 seasons but weren't always automatically in so had to play a qualifying round.
And congrats to Liverpool for being in the driver's seat, especially since Mourinho wants to rest Chelsea's players for the Champions League. Seems fitting given the Hillsborough anniversary!
