Moyes on ‘Wrong One’ plane

Following the news that a plane will fly over Old Trafford on Saturday with a ‘Moyes out’ banner, David Moyes has claimed that the fans are entitled to do it.

“I have heard of it and what they are saying about it, but this is something which is a long journey here, this is only the start of the journey,” he said. “People can do that. They are entitled to do that.”

However, Moyes is under the impression that he has more support than is being reported though.

“Everywhere I go I get great support from Manchester United supporters,” Moyes said. “I was at a dinner last night for Darren Fletcher and there were Manchester United supporters who came up to me and said: ‘Come on, keep going, we understand exactly the situation the club is in and team is in.’ They were really supportive and every time I have been to Old Trafford they have been great. I am seeing a lot different from what a lot of people are saying but I understand that results matter.”

    “After flying the plane, there will never be anything special about being a United fan”
    Erm WHAT? Some people are so deluded. Lol we’re just like EVERY OTHER FANBASE IN FOOTBALL. We think we’re special when we really aren’t. Flying the plane changes NOTHING about what it means to support United. What a fucking knee jerk reaction FFS.

    I ant to see the plane and I want to hear some boos irrespective of the score. The sooner we hound him of our club the sooner we can recover

    No clear replacement. So what’s the point. Just have the same result with someone else. Best just try and build some stability.

    @dannysoya LOVES USAIN BOLT – I do think we (true hardcore reds) are different to most sets of supporters (or at least we were at one time: the days when the Stretford End made more noise than a jumbo jet!). But I agree about the banner….I was there for the “It’s still crap: Ta-Ra Ferge!” banner in the 89/90 season. It was done because of a love and passion for United, and hating to see the club (and the team) turning to shit… And that’s why it is being done today. Ignore cunts like Gordon Taylor (PFA): the so-called players union rep who did nothing to help Cantona after being provoked by that racist toejam at Selhurst, and when Eric got his excessive FA ban..

    United fans do one thing (not aggressive or abusive. Just a genuine protest), and that Taylor prick is going on about “a lack of class”. Yet other fans can be racist, other fans give Nazi salutes, while others(not a million miles away!) can refer in their official club programme to United as “Munichs” (which they once did!), while some of their fans glory in death and sing about air crashes, and that twat, Taylor doesn’t say a word…

    Gordon Taylor, and the other cobweb riddled antiques (like that bastatd, Scudamore!) that run football in the UK, should keep their noses out of MUFC business…
