Hope in our hearts

December 21, 2017

You do football manager David Moyes a disservice in claiming that the chances of any honours from Manchester universities are slim ( “The week in higher education” , News, 14 December). Scousers of every hue (and the blue side of Manchester) have lobbied the senate here long and hard for a gong to reflect the direction of Manchester United’s fortunes since Mr Moyes was in charge. He was highly regarded at the Faculty of Science, and the jury awaits Sam Allardyce.
