Did Fergie know about Moyes bombshell on Valley Parade trip?

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: DAVID MOYES: Did not appear to be respected by United players DAVID MOYES: Did not appear to be respected by United players

Phew! A fair bit has gone on since Sir Alex Ferguson walked through the Valley Parade entrance on Good Friday.

Football’s knight of the realm sat with Mark Lawn to watch City topple his son’s Peterborough lot.

Amid the customary small talk, I wonder if they discussed the importance of sticking by your manager?

As the force behind the appointment of David Moyes as his successor, I’d love to know if Fergie had an inkling at that point about what was about to explode at Old Trafford.

For someone who has known the goings on in every nook and cranny at the club for the past quarter of a century, it seems inconceivable that he was oblivious to the storm brewing.

Perhaps, like a Godfather-style head of the family, he was making sure his presence was seen very publicly well away from the scene of the “crime”.

But who would have thought that Manchester United would now be looking at Bradford City for lessons in managerial stability!

In the mean time, with home games against Norwich, Sunderland and Hull to come, I fully expect United to mop up maximum points under Ryan Giggs in the final matches.

It will be the parting two fingers to the boss they never seemingly respected from the moment Fergie brought him in to Old Trafford last summer.

And see Mr Sports Ed, I can still write a piece mentioning Giggs without bigging up the time I interviewed him when he was 14 and captain of Salford Boys ...
