Ferguson & Moyes must share blame for Manchester United mess, say Goal readers

Goal's poll results suggest that the current manager and the man who handpicked him as his successor are equally as culpable for the club's miserable Premier League campaign
David Moyes and Sir Alex Ferguson are equally to blame for Manchester United's dismal season, according to Goal readers who voted in our poll.

United have endured a miserable campaign and were thumped 3-0 by fierce rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Fans turned on Ferguson after the game – berating him for his choice of successor – and one supporter even attempted to breach the dugout in a bid to harangue Moyes personally.

Stewards were also forced to protect the Stretford End's 'Chosen One' banner in case fans attempted to tear it down, but both men are just as culpable.

Incredibly, 50.16% of readers voted that Ferguson was to blame, with his recommendation to the board apparently leaving United in the mess they are currently in.

However, Moyes remains under pressure at Old Trafford, with the club's powerbrokers already considering possible replacements.
