Moyes slumped to a 10th defeat of the season against Man City yesterday evening and his record as manager makes for horrible reading;
- Most home defeats in 12 years
- 1 win in 13 against top of the table opposition league
- Beaten home and away by both Liverpool and Man City
It has been said that as long as he has the fans on his side Moyes will be fine but it appears public opinion is turning against him so much that after tonight’s loss stewards in Old Trafford had to guard the “Chosen One” banner erected in his honour.
Stretford End Flags have been asked to take the banner down already by fan groups and if it goes or even worse is taken down by angry fans will surely signal a step too far for Moyes.
Personally I feel it was a badly thought out idea to put it up in the first place, as an situation like this was possible. It added unnecessary pressure, perhaps it should have been put up after he had eased his way into the job?
