David Moyes at Manchester United: Five biggest issues for the new manager (apart from Wayne Rooney's future)
New players are needed and respect must be won
The biggest issue facing David Moyes is the future of Wayne Rooney.
But with the former Everton manager seemingly ready to bide his time over that particular conundrum, there are other concerns that need his attention at Old Trafford.

United's entire staff are Ferguson's choices. It may take years for Moyes to fully establish his own identity.
A settled defence
Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic are increasingly injury-prone and question marks remain over Patrice Evra.
Old problems don't go away. Paul Scholes has gone, again, and Ryan Giggs is entitled to feel his time is nigh. Anderson too. Moyes needs a blue-chip signing.
Moyes has never won a trophy and only has limited experience of the Champions League. He needs early success to establish respect.
Sir Alex Ferguson
Ferguson has been the kingmaker. Giving him the sense that he has not lost control while exerting his own power is Moyes' ultimate challenge.
