behind that development, as well as Chelsea's semifinal in Madrid. Also

:00:00.:00:00.

World Championship snooker, that is after The Papers.

:00:00.:00:15.

Hello. Welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us

:00:16.:00:21.

tomorrow. With me, Anne Ashworth, the assistant editor at The Times,

:00:22.:00:27.

and David Davies, media editor and former executive director of the

:00:28.:00:33.

Football Association. The macro, a man that graces some of the front

:00:34.:00:37.

pages, former Manchester United manager David Moyes. The paper also

:00:38.:00:42.

poses the question, end of the binge? It says that research shows a

:00:43.:00:48.

sharp fall in the amount people look back and a corresponding fall in

:00:49.:00:52.

drink related attacks. The Telegraph highlights comments from Dominic

:00:53.:00:54.

Grieve, saying that Christians are afraid to express their beliefs

:00:55.:01:01.

because they are turned off by the rising religious fundamentalism.

:01:02.:01:04.

Vince Cable has warned boardrooms to crackdown on executive bonuses, says

:01:05.:01:10.

the Telegraph. The Daily Mail says that customs officials will be

:01:11.:01:14.

prevented from asking EU nationals entering the country how long they

:01:15.:01:18.

intend to stay here. The Financial Times says David Moyes was sacked as

:01:19.:01:21.

the manager of Manchester United because his PR was poor. The

:01:22.:01:28.

Scotsman leads on Preston Flores, who has died from his injuries after

:01:29.:01:32.

being severely earned on Friday in what police say was probably an

:01:33.:01:37.

accident. `` severely burned. We will start with The Guardian. We

:01:38.:01:43.

have to start with you, on this one. One, you are a United fan, a former

:01:44.:01:49.

executive director of the Football Association. Did you support David

:01:50.:01:52.

Moyes when he got the job, did you think it was a good idea? My hope

:01:53.:01:56.

had been that simply else would get the job in the first place. I have

:01:57.:02:03.

to say, a year ago. Like most Manchester United supporters, I

:02:04.:02:09.

wonder David Moyes to succeed. I see this first and foremost, not a

:02:10.:02:12.

fashionable view, certainly not in the media, I see this in personal

:02:13.:02:18.

terms, in human terms. For David Moyes, and for his family, it is a

:02:19.:02:23.

wretched time. It is all very well people saying he was going to get X

:02:24.:02:31.

ileum pounds compensation, his pride will be severely hurt and those

:02:32.:02:34.

around him will be severely hurt by the way that this has happened and

:02:35.:02:37.

what has happened in the last ten months. They will see it as

:02:38.:02:47.

failure. On the Guardian front page, their writer Owen Gibson

:02:48.:02:52.

talks, the end, just ten months after a smiling Moyes walked into

:02:53.:02:56.

Old Trafford clutching his contract, it was brutal and underlined the

:02:57.:02:58.

extent to which Manchester United can no longer differentiate itself

:02:59.:03:02.

as a club. That's quite interesting to me. I just United were different

:03:03.:03:07.

as a club because they had one manager in 27 years. The club on the

:03:08.:03:14.

other side of the city has had 21 managers in those 20 years. Has a

:03:15.:03:21.

reality now come to Manchester United? I fear that it has. That is

:03:22.:03:26.

the world in which they are operating. Of course, the top of

:03:27.:03:31.

that picture of David Moyes, in the Guardian, just like any other club.

:03:32.:03:35.

There are people around that will remember what happened after the

:03:36.:03:39.

brilliant Sir Matt Busby, there were six or seven other managers. One

:03:40.:03:42.

wonders if Manchester United are heading the way that Liverpool did

:03:43.:03:48.

in the 1990s, where their supremacy ended? Look what is happening to

:03:49.:03:54.

Liverpool now. It is an extraordinary thing, this story.

:03:55.:03:57.

It's got bigger names, big money, it's got everybody talking today.

:03:58.:04:08.

The way in which he was let go, the way he was humiliated, probably

:04:09.:04:11.

unnecessarily in most people's views, they should have done a much

:04:12.:04:14.

more quietly. They announced it through Twitter. We all knew that he

:04:15.:04:20.

was going. Also, the extraordinary resurgence of the Manchester United

:04:21.:04:23.

as a business, following his departure. The share price rocketed

:04:24.:04:30.

in New York. It is now feeling that it is on the way up from here, that

:04:31.:04:35.

there may be money freed up to buy new people. You are not convinced?

:04:36.:04:40.

I'm not. Let's go back to the top of this story. Just like any other

:04:41.:04:43.

club. Will you tell me any other club that needs your bulletins

:04:44.:04:52.

although, and leads international television bulletins? `` leads. And

:04:53.:04:57.

extraordinaire situation. I marvel at it. Do I think it's right? No, I

:04:58.:05:02.

don't. It's a Football Club, for goodness sake. But it means an

:05:03.:05:08.

unbelievable amount to an unbelievable number of people around

:05:09.:05:12.

the world. We have to accept that. And obviously to you. What I'm

:05:13.:05:16.

slightly bemused about is the FT story. Saying it is that Moyes's

:05:17.:05:22.

mistake was his inability to play the PR game. Tell me, is this is

:05:23.:05:26.

what is required from his role? That is not my understanding. I seem to

:05:27.:05:32.

remember that Alex Ferguson was sometimes criticised for his PR.

:05:33.:05:39.

There was a very large news organisation he did not speak to

:05:40.:05:43.

four years, I remember. No, luck, this stuff about PR, and I speak as

:05:44.:05:48.

a former director of communications, when we won matches, the England

:05:49.:05:53.

team won matches, it was easy. When you don't win matches, it's

:05:54.:05:58.

horrific. If you have the profile of Manchester United. That's the

:05:59.:06:03.

reality. What is very interesting is the continued silence of Sir Alex

:06:04.:06:05.

Ferguson, who, remember, is going to be lecturing executives at the

:06:06.:06:10.

Harvard business School on how to manage. Also, nobody seems to point

:06:11.:06:13.

the finger at one particular player will stop was there... Did he

:06:14.:06:19.

totally lose support in the dressing room? Is that what happened? That

:06:20.:06:25.

will emerge, I'm sure, over the next few weeks. For me, Sir Alex Ferguson

:06:26.:06:29.

remains the number one manager of my lifetime and I was lucky enough to

:06:30.:06:40.

know Busby, Shankly and Paisley. Let's go to the Telegraph. And

:06:41.:06:45.

Christians afraid to speak up. Deep intolerance of religious extremists

:06:46.:06:55.

are extremists are stopping worshippers of all faiths to speak

:06:56.:07:00.

of their beliefs. This is interesting, we have heard about God

:07:01.:07:03.

botherer. David Cameron was described as that when he talked

:07:04.:07:07.

about being in touch with Christianity. But apparently other

:07:08.:07:10.

Christians don't want to assert themselves to say ` I believe in God

:07:11.:07:17.

I'm a church goer because any manifestation in religion is now

:07:18.:07:20.

seen as fundamentalism. That we don't seem to have any kind of

:07:21.:07:25.

middle ground ` people can't say ` I kind of believe in God. I quite like

:07:26.:07:30.

going to church. That will deem them to be a creationist and goodness

:07:31.:07:35.

knows what else and lead them to all kinds of accusations from the

:07:36.:07:40.

atheist lobby. It is a very interesting storey. It is coming

:07:41.:07:44.

from another member of the Government. I wonder whether this is

:07:45.:07:49.

something that they ` a little bit of positioning in the Tories to

:07:50.:07:54.

maybe go into some ground that UKIP hasn't occupied On a personal level

:07:55.:07:59.

I have sympathy with this dommic grieve view. I think there is

:08:00.:08:02.

something in T I also share the traditional view of Mr A Campbell

:08:03.:08:08.

and others, in days gone by, I think when Governments get into God, it is

:08:09.:08:14.

only setting themselves up for difficulties. But, having said, that

:08:15.:08:17.

there is an issue that Christians feel. They are being tarred with the

:08:18.:08:24.

brush of playing religion, of having that as part of their central

:08:25.:08:28.

message. The fact that they are Christians. The suggestion that

:08:29.:08:33.

other people might be angry that, you know, that the religious

:08:34.:08:37.

extremists around is tarring them. It is ran interesting story. I would

:08:38.:08:41.

love to know whether most people who feel that they are at one with God,

:08:42.:08:45.

and go to church, feel they are fundamentalists, but I'm in the

:08:46.:08:49.

sure. I'm sorry we are going to have to cut it there. Much curtailed our

:08:50.:08:54.

time. Many apologies for that. You will be back in an hour's time to

:08:55.:08:59.

discuss more stories. Stay with us. At the top of the hour we will have

:09:00.:09:02.

much more on the increasing situation in Ukraine and, the

:09:03.:09:05.

worsening picture there in the east of the country. But now, time for

:09:06.:09:07.

Sportsday. Welcome to sportsday. So much for

:09:08.:09:32.

being the Chosen One. Manchester United are looking for the Right

:09:33.:09:35.

One, after sacking David
