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


World Championship snooker, that is after The Papers.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


drink related attacks. The Telegraph highlights comments from Dominic


Grieve, saying that Christians are afraid to express their beliefs


because they are turned off by the rising religious fundamentalism.


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


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


prevented from asking EU nationals entering the country how long they


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


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


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


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


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


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


executive director of the Football Association. Did you support David


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


extent to which Manchester United can no longer differentiate itself


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


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


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


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


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


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


There are people around that will remember what happened after the


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


wonders if Manchester United are heading the way that Liverpool did


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


unbelievable amount to an unbelievable number of people around


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


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


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


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


remember that Alex Ferguson was sometimes criticised for his PR.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Christians afraid to speak up. Deep intolerance of religious extremists


are extremists are stopping worshippers of all faiths to speak


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


botherer. David Cameron was described as that when he talked


about being in touch with Christianity. But apparently other


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


much more on the increasing situation in Ukraine and, the


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


Sportsday. Welcome to sportsday. So much for


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


One, after sacking David
