Manchester United fans may have booked a second plane

Published Add your comment

Manchester United fans have paid for a plane to fly a banner over Old Trafford in protest of David Moyes' reign tomorrow - but has a second plane carrying a separate message also been booked?

Moyes has struggled badly during his first season in charge at Old Trafford, and is destined to guide the reigning champions to their lowest points total in Premier League history.

The nadir of his reign as Manchester United boss came on Tuesday when his side succumbed to a 3-0 defeat against rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford.

That defeat came just days after the Red Devils fell to a 3-0 defeat against Liverpool - and now a group of fans have had enough.

A supporters group have clubbed together to hire out a plane to carry a banner reading Wrong One - Moyes Out" over Old Trafford during the game against Aston Villa tomorrow.

However there could well be a twist in the tale, with TalkSport's Andrew McKenna claiming that he has received information from a pilot that a second plane could also fly over during the game.

As yet there has been no confirmation of the story, or what message could be carried by the plane.

The story has caused quite a stir, with Villa boss Paul Lambert saying: "I think some of the criticism is way over the top, I really do. If you are talking about flying an aeroplane over the stadium with a message to say you are not wanted, it is a bit extreme.

"I think the magnitude of the job is huge. Only David can truly tell you about that, but from the outside looking in, it is a massive, massive job.

"It is not as if he is standing out there and thinking 'things are not going well, but I still feel good'. He is human like everybody else and when you get that level of criticism it would not be nice."
