There were many factors in getting to this point but the final one was the joyless c*** LvG. The club were pretty shoddy in how they sacked him as he did the lap of honour with the FA Cup but it was no less than he deserved. f*** him.
Word - absolutely joyless attending during that period as there was nothing whatsoever to maintain your interest. It was mad for most of the 70’s/80’s and the expectations were painfully low. So not arsed and spend every Saturday going berserk.

Lvg all day long. Easily the most disappointing- expected nothing from Moyes- was told we had a genius with lvg and it was awful. Miserable tepid shite with very few notable exceptions.

Can’t say the current regime is enthralling either. All a bit shit if truth be told.

All of this. What gets lost is that LVG had more support on here than I ever remember Fergie having, people turned because they expected so much more, most of us remembered Ajax '95, his Barcelona teams, balls on the table etc and instead we got a shell, much harder to accept than Moyes who people hoped would do well but didn't expect to.

Was a bit more caveat emptor with Mou after his last Chelsea season, results have improved but joy has been harder to find, win our next three though...

No fan of LVG but let’s not forget (a) there was the occasional decent performance, and (b) he won a trophy

Moyes on the other hand.....doom doom doom

Can't be arsed reviewing stats, but as much as I didn't like the teams that both managers after Sir Matt had played, for whatever reason, the football was crap, interspersed with classic United, until the Tommy Doc era, then the good times came back.
Moyes lost to teams that hadn't beaten us in millennia, and for that alone, he is the c***, number one.
It's bad to hate, but sometimes that's all you have, even all these years later.

Obvs only known the latter era. Moyes was surreal. So used to United being great and suddenly we were a genuine laughing stock.

LvG's first season was fine, but 2nd season, easily the most frustrating period watching United. Having a great manager who could have revolutionised the football, hampered largely by insufficient players he either bought or inherited. Current United draws less expectation. Unlike '14-16, it's clear that the best it can be is functional winning football, and I don't think latter looks likely. Only serves to reinforce my feeling that the previous idea and the young side being built was dispensed with in favour of a dice throw for short-termism.
