Moyes admits United need signings

Manchester-United-v-Swansea-City-FA-Cup-Third-Round-2992656Having seen his side capitulate to yet another home defeat and plunge even further into a crisis, David Moyes has partiaylly backtracked on his comments and admitted that Manchester United simply aren’t good enough and need to bring reinforcements in as soon as possible.

The United manager, who as little as two days ago had denied United would buy in the January transfer window, however admitted that while the need for quality players is there for all to see, it might be extremely complicated to sign players this month.

“There is an urgency that we would like to bring people in but are those players available in January?” said Moyes.

“So there’s no point in me hyping it up, because the players we would like to bring in are probably not available in January, not because we don’t want to do it.

“I said I would try, but that it would probably be doubtful in January, because of the window, but I think I’ve been saying it fairly consistently.”

Yesterday’s defeat against Swansea was United’s fourth in the last six games at home and Swansea’s first ever win away at Old Trafford was a new low for the club, whose season of transition seems to have quickly turned into a season of decline and Moyes admitted his players were way short of confidence yesterday.

“You can see we’re just lacking a bit of confidence when we get into the final third and we’not taking the chances when we get them,” said the United manager.

“We need to go back to winning ways, we need to find ourselves be hard to play against at home.

“It’s been a tough start, a tough opening period. I’m disappointed we’ve not won more games or played better, but I’m sure it will change, I’ve no doubt about that.”

“We have to make sure we find a solution to win. Part of the job is finding a way of winning,” continued Moyes.

“It doesn’t matter what style, whatever you do, you have to find a way of winning and that’s what we have to do.”

Darren Fletcher, arguably United’s only positive in yesterday’s debacle,  said: “It’s a massive blow, let’s not kid ourselves here, this is a really bad result.

“There are a lot of angry, hurt players and we feel we’ve let the manager and the fans and everyone down by losing.

“It’s not good enough and we’re going to have to raise our performance levels.”
