Report: United Fans Planning Moyes Protest

David Moyes’ problems at Manchester United have intensified since his team’s 3-0 loss to Manchester City at Old Trafford on Tuesday, a result that left the Red Devils a whopping 12 points outside of the fourth and final UEFA Champions League qualification place in the Premier League standings.

According to the Guardian, angry United fans are preparing a flypast banner that will be flown around Old Trafford for this weekend’s home game against Aston Villa that reads, “Wrong One - Moyes Out." The banner is a response to the “Chosen One” banner that has hung inside the stadium since former boss Alex Ferguson picked Moyes as his successor. The report claims a United supporters group has raised nearly 1,000 pounds ($1,660) to pay for the fly by.
