thumbnail Hello,

The Red Devils are on the brink of being knocked out of the Champions League after a dismal first-leg showing in Greece but should their manager pay the price for failure?

POLL

Manchester United are on the verge of being knocked out of the Champions League at the last 16 stage for the second year running following a disastrous defeat to Olympiakos.

The Premier League champions were comfortably beaten 2-0 by the Greek side in Athens and now need to win by a clear three-goal margin if they are to guarantee their progression to the quarter-finals.

But just how much responsibility should manager David Moyes take should United fail in Europe? Would the time be right for the Scot to pay for a miserable season by being sacked?

In a campaign that has gone from bad to worse for the Red Devils, Moyes' side have dropped way out of contention for the Premier League title as well as having been knocked out of both domestic cups by so-called lesser opposition.

United also face a monumental challenge just to secure a top-four finish this season, with Liverpool a massive 11 points clear of their north-west rivals with just 11 games left to play.

Moyes has drawn criticism for his negative tactics ever since replacing Sir Alex Ferguson, while his well-documented failure in the transfer market, that saw the Red Devils miss out on the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Ander Herrera and Leighton Baines, has been heavily scrutinised.

But if the unthinkable, though not unlikely, outcome were to happen and United are dumped out of Europe by Olympiakos on March 19, should Moyes be sacked by the Glazer family?

HAVE YOUR SAY

What do you think? Would it be a case of enough is enough should the club's final hope of a trophy this season go up in smoke? Or is Moyes still the right man to lead United forward?
