It appears the troubled Manchester United head coach, David Moyes, is nearing the end of his line. In an attempt to explain Manchester United’s bad form, Moyes has lashed out against the referees. Following Tuesday’s 2-1 Capital One Cup loss at the hands of Sunderland, Moyes made the following statement:
Moyes: “We are having to play the opposition & the officials at this moment..maybe I’ve got to understand that’s what happens at Man United”

Yes, you read that right, it appears Moyes is blaming Manchester United’s bad run on the officials, not on his players, and certainly not on himself. An outrageous statement of course, considering the amount of success Sir Alex Ferguson had at Manchester United.
Moyes’ team has lost three matches in a row, in a matter of seven days, United’s Premier League comeback hopes have been cut, they have been eliminated from the FA Cup, and reduced their chances of winning the League Cup, the only trophy Manchester United can hope for this season.
As Manchester United’s season continues to deteriorate, we can only hope (because it’s so funny) that Moyes will continue to make outrageous comments. What do you all think about Moyes’ statement?
