Where the streets have no name for Moyes

Where the streets have no name for Moyes

Sir Alex Ferguson has followed in the Sir Matt Busby's footsteps. He has left Manchester United on the brink of oblivion.

Yes, I'm joking. He's only had a street named after him.

Everyone can take a deep breath and count to 10. I'm not really saying it's the end of the world for United. That will come next season.

But Ferguson does have a street, aptly known as Sir Alex Ferguson Way (also known as "How the United Dressing Room Has Been Run for 26 Years").

The retired Scotsman expressed his gratitude for such an honour, but such unusual accolades are double-edge swords.

Having such a visible, touchable accolade in industrial Manchester might be asking for trouble. Apparently, there have been two vandalism attempts already.

But the police took the cans of spray paint away from David Moyes.

According to eyewitnesses, a wideeyed Scotsman was spotted defacing the road sign while singing Frank Sinatra's classic My Way.

Moyes has promised not to vandalise the street sign again, but then he has also promised to win silverware at Old Trafford so every comment must be taken with a pinch of salt.

There's not much chance of Moyes getting himself a street sign at the moment.

As things stand, he'll be lucky to get a parking space in Manchester.
