David Moyes writes letter to Manchester United fans - in full
The letter was sent out in the quarterly season-ticket holders magazine
Friday 07 March 2014
Here is the full text of David Moyes' quarterly address to Manchester United fans in the club's season ticket holders magazine:
A word from the boss
While I knew that this job would be a challenge when I took it on, the difficult season we have experienced was not something that I envisaged, which I am sure is the case as well for you supporters - and my players, staff and I are desperate to compensate for that.
You are accustomed to seeing a successful Manchester United and the backing you have given the players and I throughout the season has been incredible. Away from home the travelling fans have remained the best in the country, while at Old Trafford your unwavering faith has been noticeable and hugely welcomed. Supporting your team when they are winning is easy, but much harder when things are not going as well, and the loyalty you have shown us has been magnificent.
Everywhere we turn, people outside the club have a lot to say about Manchester United, but we have all stuck together through some tough times this season and I firmly believe that, in the long run, we will all come out at the other end, stronger for the experiences. Everything we have been through will make us a better, stronger team and club in the future.
Over the years you have seen great winning sides here and, in time, I have absolutely no doubt that we will see great winning sides here again. A big step towards that will be transforming Old Trafford back into the fortress it has been long renowned as, and we will do everything in our power to get the positive performances and results to do that, so that we can give you season ticket holders and all our supporters something to shout about.
