David Moyes’ first season in charge of Manchester United has been one to forget as the defending EPL champs languish in seventh place — 11 points adrift of Liverpool for the final Champions League berth. We’ve documented United’s decline under Sir Alex Ferguson’s replacement extensively in the last eight months. In short: Moyes isn’t doing a good job, but the roster United executives cobbled together isn’t doing him any favors. Nor are the giant forks sticking out of the backs of formerly stalwart defenders Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.
Tuesday in the Champions League United’s season somehow found a way to strike an even lower nadir, as the Red Devils were defeated 2-0 at the hands of Greek side Olympiacos in the first leg of their Round of 16 match-up. This defeat appears to have been the final straw for one United fan who made the all-around great decision to get “Moyes Out!” tattooed very close to the area on the back that’s usually labeled a “Tramp Stamp.” (He also probably should have gone with #MoyesOut instead of the exclamation point, but why quibble?)
Can you imagine a scenario where somehow this fan walked into the Manchester United boardroom, lifted up the back of his shirt and silently pointed at his tattoo?
Anyways, the sense of validation this fan will feel when and if Moyes is finally relieved of his services will probably surpass any previously recorded in human history.
