- April 21, 2014
Sky Sports News have just checked Twitter and are now reporting that Moyes could be sacked…

The first rumblings emerged last night, as it surfaced that the defeat at Everton had provoked doubts among the Manchester United board on Moyes.
This afternoon, the story has grown to epic proportions, with ESPN tweeting that Moyes’ sacking is actually imminent; it now looks for all the world like Moyes won’t see out the day as Man United manager.
As par for the course, Twitter has jumped the gun, with people tweeting odds for the next United boss, and even linking Moyes with the Spurs job.
To be clear: at the time of writing, Moyes has yet to be sacked, but it’s a question of hours according to authoritative sources on Twitter.
Where does this leave Fellaini?

Moyes hasn’t even been sacked yet but apparently there’s a deal in place for him to be appointed by Spurs. Twitter, ya killing me mate.

You could see several games ago that Man Utd’s players had bailed out on David Moyes. There’s almost never a way back from that.

Klopp to Man Utd chances hover near the zero per cent mark. Not *totally* impossible but close enough
