David Moyes has endured a difficult time since taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.
And a disappointing season was made even worse this afternoon as Manchester United fell to a dramatic 2-2 draw at home to Fulham, despite enjoying over 70% of the possession and spending almost the entire 90 minutes in Fulham’s half.
Two goals in two minutes in the second-half overturned Fulham’s first-half lead, but Darren Bent’s 94th minute header gave the Premier League’s bottom side a precious point.
And United’s struggle to score a goal against a side with the worst defensive record in the Premier League this season raised more questions of Moyes’ ability to continue Fergie’s trophy-hauling reign at United.
So here’s three things we’ve learned about United under Moyes following that stuttering draw with Fulham…

Cross cross cross cross cross. Then One counter attack by Fulham and our defence gets under pressure. Lose this, forget 4th place #mufc

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, it’s the Moyes way #mufc

Problem this season is we haven’t got a comeback in us. That’s the fear again today. #mufc

At least if we lose, they might finally put him out of his misery #MUFC

You’ve got to admit though- Moyes has got some balls. Spends £37 mil. on an elite player and immediately plays him out of position #mufc

Mata has made absolutely no difference so far. Like buying a Ferrari and doing laps of a car park at 20mph.
