“Even if we don’t achieve Champions League football next season, it’s not the end of the world,” Manchester United legend Gary Pallister has said.

Currently in sixth position in the Barclays Premier League and 11 points from the fourth and final automatic Champions League spot, United have qualified for Europe’s premier competition every year since the 1995/96 season.

Despite having just 13 games left to play, the club has not written off their chances of getting automatic qualification, according to Pallister during United's trophy tour stopover in Singapore. But the former defender admitted that it will be a big blow to the club should they miss out.

“It’s never been a guarantee."

“The Premier League is getting harder with teams like Manchester City and Chelsea throwing around a lot of money on top-class players. You also have Liverpool that is coming back as a force, and Arsenal are still bringing good young players through. It’s really a minefield,” the 48-year-old continued.

Yeah, we the Man United Fans Globally have got to "Stand-by Our Man" David Moyes and give him a chance to prove his salt next season. I reckon that it'll be a blessing in disguise if United are out of the Champions League and the Europa League as it will benefit the team as how Liverpool have benefitted from not playing in the Champions League and in the Europa League this season.


Just my two cents worth which need not be the opinion of others. David Moyes, Ed Woodward and the Board must sit down and do a post mortem of what went drastically wrong this season. That is, from Bad to Worse as this never happened to a Massive Club, Manchester United Football Club.


1) Get rid of the dead wood and mediocre players. 2) Bring in 6-7 good players (not necessary Big Name Players). 3) Rooney just signed a new 5 1/2 years 300,000 pounds/week...fantastic loyalty on Wazza's part (not forgetting the massive wages). 2) RvP's contract has two years left. DM, EW & Board Must Cajole and Convince him to sign an extended contract. 4) Form a new David Moyes' Babes and go all out on four fronts next season. 5) DM must cease fielding Danny Welbeck, Ashley Young, Tom Cleverly (coz he's not so clever...LOL) & Antonio Valencia and start fielding winnable lads like Shinji Kagawa, Javier (Chicharito) Hernandez and even Luis Nani for that matter.6) DM MUST without a doubt know that he's the Gaffer at Man United and not Everton.


Then we'll see how David Moyes' Babes fair in 2014/2015. Glory Glory Man United!!!
