It now looks as if my team will be losing their manager too. If only he had got the financial support at Goodison that he will be getting at Old Trafford. We could have been tops for years now. He would have eclipsed Fergie even.

I'm taking it for granted that we will be losing David Moyes as he's been the number one candidate to replace Fergie for a few years now.

Why wasn't he offered the England manager's job?

It'll be the 'end of an era' ... in the promotional chewing-gum, bubble-blowin' industry, sadly; but, Sir Alex's mouth will be 'all the better for it', I reckon ;o]
