For this week's column, Stan Collymore took to a Google+ Hangout to talk about Manchester United's Class of '92 and their role in the club moving forward.

With regard to Ryan Giggs, now in temporary charge after the removal of David Moyes, Collymore said:

The most decorated player in football history perhaps believes his ascendancy at Manchester United can match Pep Guardiola's rise at Barcelona. I think that's misguided.

Giggs does not have the intellect of a Guardiola. Of course his experience should be tapped into—as it should with Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville.

Collymore goes on to talk about how Giggs distanced himself from Moyes early. The question Collymore asks is "Why?"

From there, he addresses the problems that could hinder Moyes' potential long-term successor. Is there a danger the most influential players at Old Trafford could undermine his position as they did Moyes'?
