Manchester United manager David Moyes up for sack?

David Moyes' reign at Manchester United hit a new low with Sunday's miserable draw against bottom-of-the-table Fulham, and now it appears that the good feeling in the city towards the so-called 'Chosen One' may be ebbing away.

The Red Devils remain in seventh position in the league and are now nine points behind Liverpool, who sit in the final Champions League position.

During the game United made an astonishing 81 crosses, with only 18 reaching a player in red.

Moyes admitted that United have a ‘mental softness’ after Darren Bent’s goal deep into added time gave Rene Meulensteen's strugglers a dramatic 2-2 draw and delivered another blow to United’s hopes of Champions League qualification. They are now nine points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

And the Manchester Evening News put the boot in to the beleaguered boss on Monday with a front page that pulled no punches. The message in their headline was loud and clear: 'Sorry Moyes, this is just not good enough.'

The draw against Fulham was the fifth time the Barclays Premier League champions have conceded a costly late goal at Old Trafford this season, and followed shock home defeats by West Brom, Swansea, Tottenham, Newcastle and Everton.

Moyes said after the match: ‘You could (point to) mental softness that we didn’t see the game out and get the job done. I would agree with that. Was it lack of concentration? Yes, maybe.’

Asked if he thought his first season as Sir Alex Ferguson’s replacement would be this bad, Moyes said: ‘Probably not, no. Today was as bad as it gets. The players are hurting. I can see every day that they’re hurting because the results aren’t going the way they want.’
United now go to Arsenal on Wednesday night desperately in need of a win to revive their hopes of finishing in the top four.
