Moyes shown the door as Giggs takes over Manchester United

Tuesday morning heralded a momentous changing of the guard at Old Trafford as David Moyes was sacked as Manchester United manager just 10 months into a six-year contract.

The Scot has paid the price for overseeing United's worst campaign in the Premier League era, with club legend Ryan Giggs tasked with guiding the club through the final four matches of the season.

Prior to the first leg of United's Champions League quarter-final clash with Bayern Munich, Giggs sidestepped questions from the media on whether he had designs on the manager's job at Old Trafford.

But with Moyes no longer 'The Chosen One', it seems the 40-year-old will get his chance to shine in the hotseat, even if only briefly.

Peep! It's Manchester United v Referees!

David Moyes and Ryan Giggs were less than impressed following Manchester United's 2-1 defeat at Sunderland in the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg on Tuesday night.

The Scottish boss said "it looks as though we are having to play them [officials] as well as the opposition at the moment" after the Black Cats were awarded a free kick and a penalty which both lead to goals.

And Giggs thinks "it's getting laughable now, the decisions just aren't quite going for us." Not an easy time to be a Manchester United player!

Mirror image Moyes is Fergie 2.0

Sir Alex Ferguson may have given up the seat of power at Manchester United but his spirit lives on in the dugout through replacement David Moyes, according to Ryan Giggs.

The former Everton boss has endured an indifferent start to the Premier League season, though he has impressed in the Champions League group stages.

And when asked on Absolute Radio whether he had noticed big differences between the two Scots, Giggs replied: “No, not really. I think they're both quite similar.

“Of course the manager's come in to the champions, he doesn't want to change too much but he's going to want to put his own stamp on it.

“I think slowly over time, it will probably change a little, but at the moment, not a lot's changed.”

The rest of the Premier League will be left ruing Giggs' words if Moyes goes on to match Ferguson's astonishing record of success at Old Trafford.

Cheers! Manchester United players talk transfers

Rio Ferdinand has told of how he and his Manchester United team-mates sit around "like fellas in a pub" discussing transfer rumours over the summer.

The centre-back let us into the world of millionaire footballers and their opinions, revealing phrases such as "I don't think he'll be any good, he'll be a great big waste of money" - he's not talking about Wayne Rooney, is he?!

Beckham joins Fergie, Scholes and Neville in Man Utd retirement home

David Beckham once again hit the headlines all over the world on Thursday when he announced his decision to retire from football.

The PSG midfielder has enjoyed a stellar career beginning at Manchester United before taking in Real Madrid, AC Milan and LA Galaxy.

Along the way he has become the world’s most famous footballer, and a global brand, but is now set to hang up his boots after 21 years at the top level.

He is not alone, of course, as his decision follows that of former Manchester United colleagues Sir Alex Ferguson and Paul Scholes, who will also bow out of the game on Sunday.

Take that Tevez! Sir Alex & Man United celebrate sweet revenge

Manchester United got their own back on rivals City by clinching their 20th league title on Monday night.

Roberto Mancini's men broke United hearts on the final day of last season, and Carlos Tevez infamously celebrated by holding up an "RIP Fergie" banner on their open-top bus tour through Manchester.

But United have roared back this season to leave Tevez et al in their wake, and Sir Alex can once again celebrate in style.

Ronaldo back on familiar ground for Man Utd - Madrid decider

Manchester United's decisive Champions League clash with Real Madrid sees a familiar face return to Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Cristiano Ronaldo returns to the club where he spent six years, won his first Champions League trophy and numerous other honours.

The Portuguese superstar will have to make sure he remembers to go to the away team dressing room upon arrival back at his old stomping ground.

Rooney mocks class dunce Van Persie

Robin van Persie might be razor-sharp on the football pitch, but his Manchester United colleagues seem to have concluded pretty quickly that the Dutchman is not quite as intimidating off it.

When asked who is the easiest to wind up in the Old Trafford dressing room, resident joker Wayne Rooney had no hesitation in identifying his new strike partner.

"I'd have to say Robin. He's not the brightest!" Rooney said in a Google hangout with DHL.

"As much of a good footballer he is, he's definitely not the brightest off the pitch and it’s just easy to get to him."

Don't worry Robin, as long as you keep banging in the goals, the banter will be kept within the confines of the United squad. Just don't go venturing into a classroom anytime soon...

Manchester United legends Giggs & Ferdinand crumble against Tottenham

Tottenham sent shockwaves around the Premier League on Saturday by beating Manchester United and securing their first victory at Old Trafford in 23 years.

Jan Vertonghen, Gareth Bale and Clint Dempsey got the goals as Spurs overwhelmed their hosts with blistering pace and direct running as the likes of Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand showed their age.

Giggs lasted just 46 minutes before being withdrawn in favour of Wayne Rooney, while Ferdinand endured a torrid afternoon, and was arguably at fault for all three of Tottenham's goals.

Team GB miss out on 'Super Saturday' gold rush

Team GB enjoyed an unprecedented level of success at London 2012 on Saturday, recording their most successful medal day in modern Olympic history.
Great Britain scooped six gold medals on what has now been dubbed 'Super Saturday' with Jessica Ennis, Greg Rutherford and Mo Farah among the winners on home soil.

But it was a different story for the men's football team who, after a promising unbeaten start in the group stages, suffered penalty shootout agony at the hands of South Korea, as Danny Sturridge missed the decisive spot kick

Team GB in medal hunt but gold is Brazil's to lose

Team GB & Spain fall at first hurdle

The men's London 2012 Olympic football tournament kicked off on Thursday, and there was no shortage of entertainment - as well as a few surprises along the way.

Despite Craig Bellamy's first-half opener, Team GB were pegged back by a physical Senegal side and had to settle for a draw at Old Trafford.
And earlier, in the biggest shock of the round, Spain, featuring Juan Mata and Javi Martinez among others were beaten by Japan.

With the host nation and one of the favourites to win the gold medal stumbling at the first hurdle, another nation could emerge as victors.
