Ten Hag makes his case as Man United's worst modern manager



NOTTINGHAM, England -- It's never a good thing for a Manchester United manager to be compared to David Moyes, but Erik ten Hag is now posting more alarming statistics than the man generally regarded as the worst manager of the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era at Old Trafford.

United's 2-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest on Saturday -- United's 14th loss in all competitions already this season -- followed the same rinse-and-repeat pattern of many of their collapses. Concede first, equalise, and then throw the game away with amateurish defending. Add in some dismal individual performances and confused tactics and you have the story of Ten Hag's season so far.
