The Reds celebrate a goal vs. Swanswa on opening day.
With 35 games remaining, United fans have a long way to go before deeming the season, team, or manager disappointing.
However, it's evident that some changes need to be made for the Reds to replicate their success from last year.
With Marouane Fellaini on the way, United's midfield will get a major boost, but that won't solve everything.
Ultimately, Moyes needs to take more risks and trust the players on his bench, such as Kagawa and Zaha, to produce at a high level if others are struggling (which is the case so far).
Although they may not be his first options at this point, Kagawa and Zaha have the electricity and creativity necessary to cultivate a fine run of form for the squad.
No one would expect Moyes to be hugely successful right away, but now that he's dealt with struggles he needs to make the appropriate changes and fixes if he wants to stick around for a long time.
A sixth-place finish won't cut it.
