Recently Released Market Study: Nuclear Energy in the United Kingdom

“But I think if there was ever a group of players who I would expect that from, it would be from Manchester United players. “The way they’re been brought up, the previous manager (Alex Ferguson).They react, and that’s what we’ll do here. Every manager has bad days and bad results, and I’m no different.” Moyes enjoyed a fine record at the Etihad Stadium with former club Everton, winning on four of his last six visits, and he appeared slightly baffled by the poor quality of his new side’s display. “I’ve been here with Everton many times and I don’t think I’ve ever suffered a defeat like that when I’ve been here with Everton,” he said. “I just told the players the way I would have told any other players if I don’t think they’re doing it. They’re good players here, good pros, and they know when they’re bang at it and when they’re not.” The defeat followed a 1-0 loss at Liverpool and a 0-0 draw with Chelsea, and having complained about United’s daunting start ahead of the season, Moyes hopes things will improve as the campaign progresses. “We want to win more of those games, we have to do that,” he said. “But maybe if those games are late in the season and not right at the early part of it, then I might have a better understanding of all the players, the situation at the club. “I think any manager who’d have been given that run of fixtures when they took over at this club would have found it difficult.” City manager Manuel Pellegrini will have far happier memories of his first Manchester derby, having seen his side climb to third place in the table with a brilliantly assured performance. Asked if City had struck a big psychological blow against their cross-town rivals, he replied: “Very big. Always, winning against Manchester United and the way we win, is always an important impact.” He said the nature of his side’s performance, in which man-of-the-match Nasri played a part in all four goals, would also help him to introduce a more expansive style of play than that of his predecessor, Roberto Mancini. “I would be very happy if we win all the games 4-1. We wouldn’t need to improve anything more,” he said.
