Manchester United fans planning a fly by protest calling for Moyes' head

The storm clouds are gathering around David Moyes and news of a protesting banner flying over Old Trafford this Saturday won't help matters.

According to The Guardian, disillusioned Manchester United fans have clubbed together through the website of United fanzine Red Issue to charter a plane to fly over Old Trafford on Saturday for their match against Aston Villa.


The plane will carry a banner with a message saying "Wrong One - Moyes Out" as a response to "The Chosen One" banner. The defeat at home to bitter rivals Manchester City is the latest in a series of depressing results for the reigning Premier League Champions. They lie in a very lowly 7th position with little or no chance of Champions League qualification.


Although they are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, many United fans fear the prospect of taking on the current European champions Bayern Munich. It's been a hugely difficult season for David Moyes having succeeded the hugely successful Sir Alex Ferguson.

It appears that the clock may be ticking for Moyes and sources close to the club are reporting that a change of manager is inevitable. The club's official stance has been to back the manager and that he will be given time, but there is a growing feeling amongst the fans and some behind the scenes that this job is just too big for the former Everton manager.
