    Bye Bye Dai !

    BBC Sport - David Moyes: Manchester United 'no comment' on boss reports




    Manchester United say David Moyes has not been sacked but declined to comment when asked about the manager's longer-term future.
    National newspapers say the club will dispense with the Scot's services following a poor season.
    However a United spokesperson would only confirm Moyes has not been sacked.
    When pressed on whether the manager would leave before the end of the season, the spokesperson added, "we do not comment on speculation".
    None of the newspapers are reporting that Moyes has been sacked yet. The Daily Mail writes that he will be dismissed before the end of the season, while the Daily Telegraph says he has lost the support of club owners the Glazer family and is facing the sack.
    The Sun and the Daily Mirror , meanwhile, report that the United board will sack him, but that it is unclear whether this will happen before the weekend's game at home to Norwich.
    Moyes was chosen by Sir Alex Ferguson to succeed him as United manager when he stepped down from the role after 26 years in charge last summer.
    The 50 year-old was handed a six-year deal to leave Everton for the Premier League champions but his tenure could be nearing an end after just 10 months.

    Man Utd let in dreadful goals - Moyes
    United, who currently lie in seventh place in the table with four games remaining, will record their lowest ever points tally in the Premier League having struggled at Old Trafford, especially.
    Under Moyes, they have lost six league games at home, been beaten in the FA Cup by Swansea and were unable to prevent Sunderland knocking them out of the Capital One Cup in the semi-finals.
    In March, supporters chartered a plane to fly overhead trailing a banner with the words, "Wrong One - Moyes Out" during the Premier League win over Aston Villa.
    The Reds will also miss out Champions League football for the first time since 1995 and are in danger of missing out on European competition altogether for the first time since 1990.
    United did reach the last eight of the Champions League before being knocked out by Bayern Munich and Moyes argued that their best displays had been in the competition.
    But the Scot has been dogged by claims of fallouts with his squad.
    When midfielder Anderson joined Fiorentina on loan in January, he was quoted as saying other United players "wanted out" although he later denied it.
    Man Utd's disappointing season
    Defeated in Champions League quarter-final by Bayern Munich
    Beaten in League Cup semi-final by Sunderland
    Lost at home to Swansea in the third round of the FA Cup
    Five points from a possible 24 against the current Premier League top four of Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal
    Defeat against Everton confirmed club will miss out on Champions League for first time in 18 seasons
    Rio Ferdinand and Robin van Persie also made less than complimentary comments about his management style, while Javier Hernandez and Wilfried Zaha posted cryptic quotes on Twitter.
    And this weekend, Manchester-born striker Danny Welbeck was reported to be considering his future after becoming frustrated at regularly being played out of his favoured position.
    Moyes left Everton after 11 seasons saying he could not turn down the opportunity to move to Old Trafford and began his job on 1 July.
    However, United endured a difficult summer transfer window and failed in reported bids for Barcelona's Thiago Alcantara and Cesc Fabregas.
    A double bid for Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines was dismissed as "derisory and insulting" by Moyes' old club Everton, although Fellaini finally joined on transfer deadline day for 27.5m.
    Moyes was unhappy with a difficult start to the season, during which his side played Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City in their first five games.
    "I find it hard to believe that's the way the balls came out of the bag, that's for sure," he said.
    But his reign began in style with a 2-0 victory over Wigan Athletic in the Community Shield at Wembley, followed by a 4-1 win away at Swansea City in the first league game of the season.
    However, things got worse quickly with defeats away at rivals Liverpool and City on the way to what will be United's worst ever Premier League season.

    Yesterday he was 99.9999% certain to be sacked. Now he is 100% sacked.


    Manchester United manager David Moyes has been sacked, only 10 months after succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson.
    He was dismissed at a meeting with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at the club's Carrington training ground shortly after 0800 BST.
    Moyes, 50, was chosen by Ferguson as the man to succeed him when he retired after 26 years in charge last summer.
