Yes we've had 11 years of him "doing well considering he has no money to spend", and at United he will have a pot full to splash.
But I don't believe for one moment he has what it takes to keep Man Utd above the rest of us.
Very little European experience; a man with very little on his CV; and this could be United's biggest mistake since appointing Wilf McGuinness in the 70's.
Or from another angle, Fergie is going to have a hip operation that could take months to sort, and he will always be the safety net should Moyes make an arse of himself.
Wayne Rooney's future is on the line after fresh reports linking the Man United striker with a move.
Rooney is going to be making plenty of headlines during the summer transfer window.
Moyes already has history with Rooney after being the striker's first boss at Everton and also a rift developed between the pair after comments from the England international about the Toffees chief in his autobiography.
It is understood that in an informal chat with Ferguson a couple of weeks ago, Rooney suggested it would be better if he made a fresh start away from United.
That - of course - was before news of Moyes' potential arrival was known and United rejected the request out of hand and insisted: "Wayne Rooney is not for sale."
Will Rooney now be moving to pastures new? This is the perfect time for a move, with PSG, Bayern Munich and Chelsea leading the chase.
