Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (Chelsea/United... LET'S GET IT ON!)
Moyes has experience of the premier league, a good track record of transfers, has kept Everton a top half (often top 5/6) club on a pathetic budget and had a good record at Preston previous to that.
Guardiola has never managed in the prem, has been successful at one team with a very distinct dynamic that Man U do not share (see Rodgers to Liverpool), was successful at a team where he inherited players such as Messi, Alves, Iniesta, Xavi, Puyol, Toure etc and was allowed to spend 88m in his first transfer window, he also has a somewhat mixed transfer history (12m for Hleb, 17m for Cacares, 10m for Henrique, 16m on Kerrison, 25m on Chygrynsky).
I never said he was a better manager, but that he would be better suited to Man U.
In short, I think moyes would do a better long term job

One thing you missed though. Pep has the experience of managing at a very VERY high level. What Moyes doesn't have. Yeah he inherited some good players but it takes a great manager to manage those good players which he done amazingly. He made some great choices such as playing Messi ahead of guys like Ibra. Really changed the dressing room dynamic. All his work
With Moyes I just don't think he could handle the pressure if he went to Man U right now. He doesn't have the level of juggling league with Cups and European football all in one go. Everton have no real pressure on them to succeed due to the funds they spend. Hell he can finish 8 and it would still be a success tbh. Pep showed in a short period of time that he is easily one of the best managers around.
