One of Alex Ferguson’s most famous quotes involved knocking Liverpool off their perch on top of English football hierarchy.
He accomplished that by amassing a flurry of trophies and by the end of his reign, Liverpool couldn’t even qualify for the Europa League. Manchester United had usurped the Merseysiders as the biggest name in English football.
Now Ferguson’s successor, David Moyes wants to give someone the opportunity to take over United’s position.
"It’s only fair, United have been on top for so long, it’s become a bit stale", said Moyes in his post-game interview. "It’s time we knocked ourselves of our f**king perch. You can print that, but don’t tell Sir Alex".
It’s not just the the EPL’s big teams that United is losing too, Moyes is a big proponent of league equality, so he has allowed the likes of West Brom, Fullham and Swansea to take points of United at Old Trafford.
"Old Trafford used to be an intimidating cauldron when I was Everton. But now, its nice to see opposing players leave with a smile on their face"
