From taxing himself to always develop young talent for the club but also for the sake of keeping English players in English football to winning as a way of life and not just philosophy at Manchester United. However, Moyes has the drive and the determination to make things work. Unlike taking over when the club had not won the league in over 20-years, Moyes now has the pressure of assuming control of a club that has won the league six times in the last ten years as well as a Champions League title, three league cups and one FA Cup.
At the time of his transition to Manchester United from Aberdeen, Ferguson inherited a club that had not won the league in over twenty years. His ability to make Everton a permanent fixture in the top eight for the last seven years despite the very limited budget he had to deal with is an accomplishment in and of itself.

With the appointment of Moyes, English footballs biggest club, at the moment, has made a statement that despite their success that they are grounded and understand that it is stability in management that sets the course for long term success.
Moyes is certain to be a success at United and his appointment is one that speaks volumes for the type of man that is needed for the Red Devils hot seat. While some will argue that the club needed to appoint someone such as Jose Mourinho because of the need for a manager that has a personality as big as some of those of the players at his disposal, I believe the complete opposite.
Most importantly the appointment of Moyes proves to all the young aspiring British managers doing apprenticeships and working for their future that they can achieve something great as Moyes has done by moving to United from Everton. But, other than Rooney, how many of them are really household names in the manner as David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Cristiano Ronaldo and the long list has become for United.
Not to say Manchester United are not a club with funds, but they built up to their success and are an example of how a winning football club should be built over time. Ferguson and Moyes share the same hard working Glasgowian roots and have work ethics that are unmatched but by few in the league.. If you also consider the times he also had European competition taxing is limited amount of full squad stars it makes it even more impressive.

Moyes will embrace and make his own the culture of Ferguson in all aspects. It is a statement of hard work and dedication being more important than a name for the moment and a big splash of money for a minute of glory before complete collapse.
Evertons success under Moyes looks even more impressive when you compare the list of superstars that Sir Alex Ferguson has had at his disposal over the last ten years you cannot think of them all. If you try to think of the biggest stars Everton have had recently you would say Marouane Fellaini, Leighton Baines, Tim Cahill, Tim Howard, Wayne Rooney (before he was a big name) Phil Neville (post United glory days) Mikael Arteta, Leon Osman, Tony Hibbert, to name several. He will take is all to heart and then put his stamp on it for the future.
Several days on from Manchester Uniteds appointment of David Moyes as the successor to Sir Alex Fergusons monumental 27-years at the club it is in fact a great thing to see have been done. The next 27-years would see the club win the league 13 times plus another 25 trophies as well as countless other accolades strewn out between players and manager alike.
Having a squad with two class players for every position will be another aspect to learn to handle, and there is certainly going to be a learning curve, but with Ferguson watching from the wings you can be sure Moyes will always have support when he needs it.
However, Moyes will have a distinctly different adjustment period as to that of Ferguson when he took control of the side in 1986.
Replacing Sir Alex Ferguson is a different set of boots to fill all-together in any capacity in which you look at it. The hard work has once again been done, but now it is up to Moyes to take the reins and maintain the success and continue to put in the same love for the game and passion for the sport that saw Sir Alex Ferguson build a dynasty that anyone can admire.
David Moyes comes into the job with a six-year contract which appears on the surface that he will be given time to get things right just as Ferguson was given in the beginning of his tenure. But, you have to wonder if the club were to slip just slightly if the fans and board would be all to forgiving.
