Manchester United’s 1-2 loss at Stoke City is definitely David Moyes’ lowest point with the team. Manchester United are currently in seventh place with just 40 points, trailing 4th placed Liverpool by six points (as of time of publishing, Liverpool has one more match at hand).
A top four finish seems more like a dream at this point in the season. Add the eliminations from the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup to the Premier League failure, and we are looking at one of the worst Manchester United seasons in many, many years (barring a spectacular run in the Champions League).
Fans are, obviously, blaming Moyes for this awful season, and they aren’t (that) wrong. Moyes’ spectacularly awful run has broken records (the types of records you don’t want associated with you). Here’s a short list of some of Moyes’ “achievements” at Manchester United:
- First home loss to West Brom since 1978
- First home loss to Newcastle since 1972
- First home loss to Everton since 1992
- First ever home loss to Swansea
- Three defeats in a row for the first time since 2001
- First league loss to Stoke since 1984 (brand new achievement for Moyes)
There you have it folks, David Moyes has broken many records in just six months as head coach of Manchester United. Drop a comment below: does he deserve to be sacked?
