Moyes latest – Favourite to be sacked, fans turning and agreeing to leave rumours

David Moyes’ future at Manchester United is the topic of the day following the 2-0 defeat to Olympiacos last night.

Will he stay or will he go?

Plenty of fans have come to their wits end with the Scot because of the manner of our defeats, not the actual losses themselves. There’s no shame in losing if you go down with a fight but to succumb to distinctly average teams on numerous occasions this season without so much of a whimper is where a lot of the frustration boils from.

Rumours spread today on Twitter that Moyes agreed to leave the club by mutual consent and that the news would be announced when the NYSE opened. They were nothing more than rumours but financially, United’s performance last night has had an immediate impact.

Sky Bet have shortened Moyes to odds-on favourite as the next Premier League manager to be sacked. Before the game against Olympiacos, he was 11/1. It means nothing in the grand scheme of things but is yet another kilo of pressure added onto the already wobbling shoulders of Moyes.

On top of that, the inevitable has happened. Somebody has made Significant in impact? No, but significant in that many people go onto it hoping to see a different answer in the middle of the screen.

Moyes has the backing of the club as it stands but the pressure boiler gauge is reaching critical mass and our next two home games are against Liverpool and Manchester City. It could get a whole lot worse.
