David Moyes staying

David Moyes will remain Sunderland manager even if he takes them down

David Moyes has been told by owner Ellis Short that he will be kept on as Sunderland’s manager, even if they are relegated from the Premier League.
It is a remarkable vote of confidence in the former Manchester United and Everton manager, given the huge financial ramifications of falling out of the Premier League. However, Short is confident he has already got the man he needs to rebuild the club, regardless of what division they are in.
In turn, although Moyes has felt as though he has had one hand tied behind his back this season because of the terrible financial situation at the Stadium of Light – the club will announce losses of around £20m again this year - he is determined to prove he still has the hunger for club management.
Crucially, having sacked a manager every year since 2010, Short does not have the appetite for more upheaval. After so long resorting to short term firefighting, to cling on to top fight status, the American feels the only way forward is to stick with Moyes.
Moyes has had an ineffectual first season, with Sunderland stuck in the relegation places since August, but has still impressed with the way he has handled himself during such a dispiriting campaign.

Following conversations with Moyes this month, as well as chief executive Martin Bain, Short has also accepted his vision for the future is the correct one, particularly if the Black Cats do finally succumb to relegation after five years of narrowly avoiding it.
Although Moyes has not had the sort of impact hoped for when he replaced Sam Allardyce in July, the Scot had success at Everton when he was given the time and freedom to implement gradual change. He will be allowed to try the same on Wearside.
Significantly, Short believes Moyes is the only man with a CV to suggest he can take Sunderland down, but minimise the long-term risks associated with relegation.
Sunderland have not accepted they will be playing in the Championship next season and Moyes is adamant they can still avoid the drop. Sensibly, though, given their perilous position, contingency plans have been made and the Black Cats hierarchy will be prepared if the worst happens.

Moyes’ men are seven points adrift of safety at the bottom of the table and although they have an advantage over their relegation rivals in the form of England striker Jermain Defoe, games are running out and they have not been able to put a run of wins together since the end of last season.
Sunderland are renowned for their remarkable ability to avoid the drop with unexpected results, at this time of year, but privately, there is also an acceptance their luck could finally run out after so many near-misses.
Moyes, who has been denied the same sort of transfer funds that benefited his predecessors, particularly in January, has already been looking at potential targets for summer recruitment.
The former Manchester United manager is focusing his attention on young players with potential to grow, with the idea that he will be able gel them with a core group of senior players willing to play in the Championship.



Sunderland have already begun to streamline behind the scenes, with Bain warning every department they can expect to lose jobs.
Although Sunderland have a bloated first team squad and too many average players on inflated wages, they are also partially protected by the fact all have a clause in their contracts which force them to take a 50% pay cut after relegation. That will reduce their annual wage bill from around £70m to £35m before players are sold.
Moyes is likely to sell England Under-21 goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and centre-back Lamine Kone to raise transfer funds to reshape the team regardless of whether they stay up or not.
Short is still trying to sell the club, but sources have indicated to Telegraph Sport that he accepts that is unlikely in their current situation and he will have to put more money in to help Moyes rebuild the team.

Not sure he's had an awful lot to be happy about! He managed to get players at Everton motivated enough and playing above themselves. We're not going to get better than him - just hope he can pull some inspiration out of the bag.

Think back to him after we beat Palace 4-0, he was happy then

With all the injuries to key players and lack of funding, I dare say if he had a big grin on his face most would be calling for his head. The poor bloke is under pressure and struggling, cut him some slack!

The cutting of that slack is never likely to happen with some fans unfortunately as they see it as their "right" because they pay. I fear that even if he saves us he will still be criticised for not doing with a smile/song/wearing a funny hat/ kicking a water bottle/singing and dancing.

Said it many times that Moyes would not have been my choice however to have us within 7 points of safety with a game in hand with a full team injured and next to no cash is remarkable IMO.
The time to judge will be when he has a full season with a fit squad and his own players.
