David Moyes under fire as local media turn on him

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United boss David Moyes is under increasing pressure after last night's 3-0 defeat against rivals Manchester City.

Moyes have presided over a string of calamitous performances throughout the season, including the 3-0 defeat against rivals Liverpool, and the 4-1 defeat against City at the Etihad Stadium earlier this season.

Having been under fire from fans for much of the season, it now appears as though the previously supportive local media have grown tired of his excuses following last night's defeat at Old Trafford.

The Manchester Evening News, who led with the headline 'Blue Murder' on their back page, has lampooned Moyes and his habit of producing unspecific explanations by creating the 'Random Moyes excuse generator' - allowing fans to put in their own problem to which the Manchester United boss will come up with an excuse. The tool has been widely circulated on social media.

The MEN's coverage is likely to be the least of Moyes' problems after last night. Manchester City strolled to victory thanks to two goals from Edin Dzeko and a late strike from Yaya Toure, which prompted some fans in Old Trafford to turn on the man who appointed Moyes as his successor, Sir Alex Ferguson.

That result means that Manchester United have taken just 7 points from 13 games against the top nine teams in the Premier League, while they are now consigned to recording their lowest ever points total since 1992.

They currently sit in 7th place, 18 points off league leaders Chelsea and 12 points adrift of Arsenal in 4th place.
