Very few United fans expected Moyes to instantly go in and retain the same level of dominance that Fergie had exerted over the league. That said, very few expected them to actually switch places with their most fierce rivals — the previous season saw Liverpool finish in seventh, while United were crowned runaway champions. Fast-forward a year and it’s Liverpool who look likely to lift the trophy, while United sit outside the UEFA Europa League spots. That must be what hurts the most.

Let’s be honest, it’s been a long time coming. While many United fans have rallied behind Fergie’s wishes in giving him more time, it has been a dismal season for the reigning champions. Don’t take my word for it — here’s a list of unwanted records broken by the former Everton man.

Of course, there’s also the other section of the fans — the #MoyesOut brigade — a manager on top of things is not going to get a banner like this flown above Old Trafford on match day —

By the end of things enough was enough, it seemed like the majority of Moyes fans were from the Blue side of Manchester —

Rob Van Dam’s brother Martin Demichelis bags himself another tap it — it flies in from the corner and is headed on by skipper Vincent Kompany before he makes space for himself to knock it into the unguarded half of the net.

haha yes, that’s literally the only similarity between them, but it’s too big for me to overlook

They’re right back in it! A quick break from West Brom following a poor, poor free kick from City sees a few of them sprint up the pitch, culminating in some absolutely fantastic control by Dorrans, as he flicks it over Clichy and blasts it past Joe Hart to reduce the deficit to one!

It’s going to be a long night for West Brom. After setting things up for the first, Agüero’s return to the starting XI continues to work out, with a bit of luck — it comes back from Amalfitano, and he smashes it in from range to double the advantage!

They don’t waste any time, do they? A cross comes in for Agüero, who puts his foot through it, forcing a great save from Ben Foster. Unfortunately for the Baggies, Zabaleta is there to mop up, diving in and heading it home.

2012/13 Serie A champions Juventus took on Coppa Italia winners Lazio — this Supercoppa Italiana was not a close fought match by any stretch of the imagination; by the end of the 90 minutes, Juve had put four past the Rome-based side.

Guardian not holding back after Pepe’s dive —

42 min: Pepe is a truly ridiculous individual, perhaps the worst footballer who ever lived. Watching him play, if you can call it that, is a deeply unpleasant experience. He was fairly challenged by Kroos in his own half on the left and, of course, he threw himself into the air and started rolling around, unable to believe he hadn’t been given a free-kick, acting as if he’d been the victim of an egregious assault. Bayern keep attacking and Real are down a defender. But when Lahm looks around to make sure Pepe is okay, the eedjit, who was about to get up once he realised Webb wasn’t interested, dropped back to the floor again and Lahm knocked the ball out of play. A few words come to mind, most of them containing four letters.

The Welshman has been heavily criticized this season for disappearing in “huge matches” and what better occasion than this to prove your haters wrong.

If you don’t want him… :‘(
