    Scott is terribly hurt, we all are.

  2. masso2sets says:

    Wrong one alright but sadly SBC and SAF thinks he`s the right choice. God `elp us!”

  3. Monica Bulker3 says:

    1 goal scored, 14 conceded against our fiercest rivals in 6 games. 1 draw and 5 losses, I’ve never seen Man United playing this bad since I was a fan back in 98.

    An article about 31 reasons David Moyes must leave Manchester United:

    Sadly those statistic are true..

  5. Paschal Agwunobi says:

    Sack that idiot,he’s a shame!

  6. Ian Nichol says:

    Scott, Well done for visualising what all of us are feeling after a very disappointing season. This is not a transition as Moyes keeps describing it. Rather this is a road to decline and disaster if the Board do not act by the end of the season. I would rather we act after the CL games and sack Moyes then and bring Phelan and Rene back to see us through to the welcome end of this season. This will then give us time to recruit a top class manager with CL experience so he can take a look at the squad and importantly maximise the opportunities in the transfer window. Then we can all look forward to next season. The thought of Moyes spending £100m and being in charge next season is just to depressing to contemplate.

  7. Mark Reid says:

    Out of his depth end of story we tried didn’t work cest la vie.

    That banner was a piss take that back fired.
    We do what we want, and they do fuck all on the pitch.
    Play your hearts out for your money and fans, not us singing-
    ‘sing your hearts out for the lads’.

  9. Gary Mitrovic says:

    The people behind the “chosen one” banner really are a bunch of twats. I don’t there was many who were too keen on putting that up in full display of the footballing world, just asking for it to come back and bite us in the arse.

  10. Conor McCann says:

    Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion, but what exactly are posts like this hoping to achieve?

  11. Damo says:

    Check this out – Manchester United manager David Moyes said rivals City are “at the sort of level we are aspiring to” after Manuel Pellegrini’s men ran out 3-0 winners at Old Trafford –

    Who the fuck does he think he is? One season doesn’t change who we are. He’s seriously got no idea what United are about, who we are and what we stand for. To say we should be like City is the most ridiculous thing he’s ever said.

    He’s gotta go, end of story

  12. Mark Odeoshe Ajayi says:

    SBC , SAF and moyes the dog are killing man utd.

  13. Red_G says:

    Scary as it sounds but the glazers may need to step in to save the club
    No way moyes should be give until the end of the season. We need to start planning now for next season and that includes bringing in a new manager

  14. Mark Reid says:

    I honestly don’t think Moyes will be fired that 6 year contract speaks volumes.As I eluded to on an earlier post it’s going to be pretty dire for a couple of seasons and maybe Moyes will pull it off eventually(I doubt it)but the powers at be will have a wait and see attitude

  15. Mark Reid says:

    Almost the whole side needs overhauling,then there’s the bringing in the new players,using the up and comers it’s a daunting task and perhaps Moyes was always going to be a fall guy and if he managed a couple of trophies all the better.

  16. NBI Red 21 says:

    It’s not a transition, it’s a demolition.

  18. NBI Red 21 says:

    Alternately how about the banner “The Chosen One ???!!! ;) ” Easier to amend. Or, “The Chosen One, LOL!” or “The Chosen One :(

    The point of this article, or whatever it can be called, is as Scott is too drunk or demoralised to some out and write what he knows he needs to – that Moyes must go and what’s the plan of action, how do we do it. Come on Scott, shake a leg and write what you know you need to. The truth. Let’s hear it from the horses mouth. We have all debated it, we want your current thoughts fresh off the press. Spit it out.

  20. Martin Thomas says:

    @Gary Mitrovic – Dead right, Gary: Stretford End Flags are twats. They like to kid home fans, away visitors and the outside world that these are real banners made by real fans…

    This is crap! They are paid by the hated Glazers to produce these tacky things: so OT will look more “authentic” and to make out we have ones like the genuine banners seen at the likes of Anfield and the San Siro…These banners are official and as santised as the club megastore tat, and all real fan made flags and banners are officially banned from Old Trafford! Stretford End Flags are Glazer monkeys, and they don’t belong at United any more than uncle Malc and his hideous offspring do….

    Tear the “Chosen One” banner down? Tear the fucking lot of them down! Reclaim our Old Trafford! Reclaim our heritage!

    And nice one, Scott…

  21. NBI Red 21 says:

    Top post @ Martin.

  22. Fletch™ says:

    You lads are wrong about who pays for the flags. Stretty end flags pays for them from fan donations.
    I have contributed to several

    That said, they do maintain a relationship with the club and have to be mindful of their responsibilities.

  23. Fletch™ says:

    [Top Read]
    Manchester United consider Moyes Position
    via Dunc Castles

    Moyes Contract:
    - 6 yr contract
    - terms include a “break clause” that enables ManUtd to sack Moyes for much less

    Also says that a team have been looking at candidates for some weeks now 8O

  24. Martin Thomas says:

    Stretford End Flags do whatever the club tell them to do, and their banners are a poor imitation of the genuine colour and banners that United were so known for in the 1970s. Any supporter now who tries to get a flag or banner into the ground gets pulled up…

    Fans (not me though) may help with doantions: But do they have any say about what is displayed on these banners?! The banners Stretford End Flags make are as insincere and as inauthentic as all that crap (cheerleaders etc) that is seen at American Football. An official club flag makers?! Doesn’t that just say everything?!

  25. Damian says:

    Manchester United manager David Moyes said rivals City are “at the sort of level we are aspiring to” after Manuel Pellegrini’s men ran out 3-0 winners at Old Trafford.

    What the fuck is he talking about? We were already there and beyond years before and in a couple of months he fucks shit up and now he says shit like this?

    DM should instead say “at the sort of level I ASPIRE TO”.

  26. Mark Reid says:

    @Martin Thomas never knew that about the banner situation load of bollix that.

  27. ad_smith1 says:

    The man is a shambles, United havent looked like a team all year and he was the man who was suppose to make us into one. Not for the first time this year it was hard to see what Uniteds tactic or formation was against city. Moyes, Steve Round and Phil Neville havent a got a clue what they are doing. Everton must be laughing their socks off, the best thing that has happened to them is them all leaving. The ‘Chosen One’ banner needs to be taken down in a packed Old Trafford but the idiots at SEF wont despite the thousands of fan across social networks sites not just Old Trafford wanting them to do it. Shouldnt have got rid of SAF backroom staff like Moyes was told! #MoyesOut

  28. United Reds of India says:

    Guys GUYs… Please let not be unethical… We are a great team with strong united spirit… Be Patient! Good fortunes prevail…

  29. George says:

    Get rid of David Moyes now. Fergie got it wrong to get him in. No point waiting longer. There is nothing to loose anymore. Bring a care taker manager in now until summer. Giggs or Scholes will do. Any change is good change. Players will be motivated and we will all enjoy Utd playing attacking football again.
