David Moyes has said he will only make new signings in January should he be able to bring in players who can make a lasting impact at Manchester United.

"The thing about this club is that we always think long term," he told reporters.

"I am thinking how we are going to have a side that is going to be competing in the Champions League and right at the top end of the Premier League for four or five years.

"It has to be a continual building process here. We will continue to look to do that. In any one window you couldn’t change it all around anyway. It takes maybe two, three or four windows to do that. To talk about January and make it sound as if that would be the place where everything is cured and any problems would be resolved would be wrong."

Life without Sir. Alex Ferguson at Manchester United was never expected to be easy; on the contrary it is going to be a colossal task trying to find someone that can follow his legendary legacy with the club although however nobody could have ever imagined that the club would be so far behind the top spots of the Premier League without having Sir. Alex Ferguson leading the team.

Losing against West Bromwich Albion, Manchester City, Liverpool and suffering from shocking draws against Cardiff City and Tottenham just to name a few, the squad of David Moyes has not been able to find a stride and a good run in this season.

This has left Manchester United in the middle section of the standings despite being the current champions of the Premier League as they have to protect their silverware but are now just struggling to keep consistent rhythm of victories in this season.
