PICTURE: Club photoshop Moyes out of season ticket renewals picture

Yesterday, I received through the post the booklet about renewing my season ticket. On the front of the glossy thing they sent was a picture of the team with David Moyes standing alongside the players and fans.

However, on the e-mail that fans have received, Moyes has been photoshopped out.

    Was it necessary? Anyone following United will know Moyes is no longer there. But he is part of United’s history, we like it or not.

    Silly!

    Necessary I guess, no doubt United no longer have legal rights to use Moyes image. Also why keep him in an ad for next season if he is not going to be there.

    Top article by Owen on Giggs managing United – http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/manchester-united/10788126/Now-Ryan-Giggs-can-prove-that-he-can-be-a-serious-contender-for-the-full-time-Manchester-United-job.html

    He makes an excellent point that managing at lower leagues is not necessarily preparation for United which is a different level so Giggs would not necessarily benefit from dropping down. And I agree with him that I also thought GNev rather than Giggs was more the United manager prototype but Gary chose TV and Giggs gets the goods.

    My guess is ST sales is the explanation driving Moyes out AND now Louis van Gaal rumor leaks.

    Club will be desperate to get sales moving.

    Ohh some of. The people here will be really sad as their beloved Martinez and Everton lost.

    Another fraudster was seen leaving old trafford with £5 million quid wrapped in a bagpipe police are looking for a golum look alike who puts dynamo to shame as he can turn greatness into shit over night he dishonestly claimed to be a football manager and given 30 million quid bought Coco the fucking clown police say he is harmless as he as never attacked in his life…
    If caught he will get a good defence team !

    @ m09538061 – lol.

    Come on United. Heading to pub for the match, can’t wait. Finally something to look forward to and a positive piece of history. Giggsy must be the youngest ever manager of United. Owen is bang on, if the promotion is not internal, we may get a good manager but that manager may have a style which is not the United style and do we want to lose that? Team news!!!!!!

    NB,

    The fans have voted for this line up:

    Goalkeeper: De Gea

    Defence: Rafael, Jones, Vidic, Evra

    Midfield: Valencia, Carrick, Mata, Januzaj

    Attack: Rooney and Welbeck

  10. Roh says:

    This image is made up of individual photos of each player and the fans. It never actually happened. It’s less a case of photoshopping out Moyes, more a case of dropping one layer out of the image. It would take a couple of seconds to do. And by doing it they represent a closer version of the club going forward.

    @NBI

    Wilf MaGuinness was 31 when he took over so is the youngest to have managed United, Why does this get their own threads, he was in the pic because he was still manager when the packs were sent out, enough we move on now
