Okay, it’s a little fashionable to get on David Moyes’ back, but after today’s loss at Everton the calls for his sacking have gathered even more momentum. The Red Devils have gone from champions to a midtable club in the space of just 12 months, and even the fiercest defender of the Scot would have to admit that he’s been a big part of the decline. With the likes of Jurgen Klopp and Louis van Gaal supposedly available, how long can Moyes hold on? Here are three reasons we think he has to go.
United entered the first half like lambs heading to the slaughter, with Moyes having fielded a midfield devoid of pace and dynamism. Everton quickly cut through and exposed the Red Devils’ soft side.
I just don’t see how anyone can think this awful play will change magically under Moyes next season. No signing can change our dire tactics.

Boring. Walking pace football. Moyes’ tactics are just plain wrong. #MUFC

Too narrow, too slow, can’t keep changing defence, when will Moyes learn??

With this season now a write off, the summer transfer market appears to be pivotal for United. With £200m to spend, can Moyes be trusted to get the right players?
@asherjustin How much are Mata, Kagawa, Fellaini, Rooney and RVP worth? Not sure if Moyes can inspire £150m worth of new signings. Doubt it.

Don’t think the board would trust moyes with 200 mil to spend in the summer .

I’m sorry but Moyes is clueless and if you want him spending our transfer money in the summer then you are mad.

Is Moyes incapable of motivating any of the players? I would not trust him to order me a takeaway never mind spend £200m #MoyesOut

There was patience at first, but now the #MoyesOut has gone almost viral on every matchday. The fans are the lifeblood of clubs, so their views do count.
