Manchester United moved on from the David Moyes era in style with a 4-0 win over relegation-threatened Norwich City at Old Trafford.
Moyes was given his marching orders on Tuesday morning after a dismal ten month tenure at Old Trafford, and whilst it seems that Holland manager Louis van Gaal will be handed the job in the summer, it was over to interim boss Ryan Giggs for today's visit of the Canaries.
After a nervous first half display which saw Wayne Rooney give United the lead from the penalty spot, things improved in the second as Rooney added his second before a brace from substitute Juan Mata wrapped up a 4-0 thrashing over Norwich, who were abject throughout.
The result does little to paper over a poor season at Old Trafford, but fans on Twitter were in an optimistic mood after the final whistle, praising Giggs for the display from the Red Devils today, which many believed was a far cry from the performances seen under Moyes.
But some were also trying to keep their feet on the ground, suggesting that it was just one game, and one game against a poor Norwich side at that. Here are some of the reactions from United fans this evening.
Nice to see some attacking intent! 3 more wins to take us into a new season and hopefully a good crack at the title! #mufc— Kieran Powdrill (@KPowdrill11) April 26, 2014
Still not sure if Giggs deserves the job full time but today was a huge improvement. #MUFC— Red Devil Talks (@RedDevilTalks) April 26, 2014
Just seems indescribable right for the class of '92 at the helm, hopefully steady the ship and kick on for next season #mufc— Andy Dunn (@Andydunnn) April 26, 2014
Solid first game for Giggs, but to suggest he deserves the job full-time based on a win against a dreadful Norwich side is naive. #mufc— Martin McGreal (@mfmcgreal) April 26, 2014
Great game by #MUFC Proves Moyes was wrong for the job but doesn't mean Giggs is right; yet.— Odinaka-Enendu (@OdinakaEnendu) April 26, 2014
Completely different team today, much better football. Class of '92 do it again !#MUFC— Josh Robinson (@Josh_Robinson17) April 26, 2014
That was miles better. If he keeps it up these last three games, I say give Giggsy the job! #mufc— Jack Sleight (@cKyJack) April 26, 2014
So much more entertaining to watch now Moyes isn't in charge #MUFC— Erik ⚽️ (@ErikArter3) April 26, 2014
