David Moyes And Glasgow Football

“In the last winter of the second world war, a British soldier named Matt Busby received a letter from Manchester United’s chief scout Louis Rocca. It said, vaguely: ‘I have a great job for you if you are willing to take it on.’ The job turned out to be manager of Manchester United. On February 19, 1945, Busby showed up in Manchester in his army uniform and signed his contract. It wasn’t really a ‘great job.’ United hadn’t won a trophy since 1911, the club was penniless, and the German Luftwaffe had blitzed Old Trafford. But Busby rebuilt United. In 1968, his team won the European Cup. Later, Alex Ferguson took the club back to the heights. And this season, David Moyes is charged with the mission Busby took on in 1945. There’s something these three men have in common: They are all from the poor city of Glasgow, or its surroundings.” AskMen
