After the Manchester Derby, security was called in to prevent United supporters from tearing down an Old Trafford banner hailing Moyes as “The Chosen One.” Man United supporters have grown so angry with David Moyes, and understandably so, that they’ve now directed their angst at Fergie, the iconic legend who made Moyes ascension possible. The fans really have turned on Moyes tonight Stewards guarding “The Chosen One” banner at O.T after the game. pic.twitter.com/XMSjLpMm0w — Sir Alex Stand (@SirAlexStand) March 26, 2014 However, the polarizing banner ascribing esteemed status upon David Moyes will remain at Old Trafford. From The World Game There were reports of fans aiming abuse at Moyes’s predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson, who was sat in the directors’ box. Ferguson hand-picked Moyes from a strong field last summer. For that reason, a banner has hung in the Stretford End that includes Moyes’s face with the words ‘The Chosen One’ written alongside it.Some fans have called for the group that made the banner – Stretford End Flags (SEF) – to remove it after the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool almost two weeks ago. It is understood that the SEF has no intention of taking the banner down ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match against Aston Villa, despite calls to do so on Twitter. Are Man United past a tipping point with David Moyes? Clearly the fans are. No question about that. United are currently in seventh place in the Premier League table with 51 points, and an emphatic defeat to their local rivals — their 10th league loss of the season — inspired some fans to fly off the handle. Today’s disaster in the Manchester Derby ensured Man United will finish with their lowest point total of the Premier League era. Sources told ESPN FC last week that key Manchester United boardroom figures have considered the possibility of sacking Moyes for the first time. Watch this video, in which the ESPN FC talking heads talk about the idea of Moyes being gone by the summer.
