Twitter Reacts to News That Real Sociedad Are to Sack Poor Old David Moyes

Twitter Reacts to News That Real Sociedad Are to Sack Poor Old David Moyes

So, it’s almost official: David Moyes is to be sacked by La Liga side Real Sociedad after almost exactly a year in charge of the Spanish club.

According to Sky Sports’ Spanish football pundit Guillem Balague, the team from San Sebastian have became disillusioned with Moyes and his under-performing stars after they won just two of their first 11 La Liga matches this season.

Friday’s 2-0 defeat to newly-promoted Las Palmas was the final straw, and the former Everton and Manchester United manager will be shown the door on Sunday night after returning from a trip to England.

It isn’t even 18 months since Moyes was sacked by the Red Devils themselves, after a disastrous spell at Old Trafford.

Balague told Sky Sports: “He is currently flying from Manchester to San Sebastian, and when he gets there, he will meet the board of directors and certainly the chairman, and he will be sacked

“That is something that perhaps he will not expect because this morning he said he was prepared to fight for his position and thought he had enough arguments to be able to help the team keep performing.

“And actually he has been 38 games in charge, which is more or less a full season, and won 46 points, which is not terrible and certainly not a sacking offence.

But the problem is the expectations. When you bring someone like David Moyes to Real Sociedad, they expect them to do much more than 29% win.

“Sociedad had to ask what kind of manager they were looking for, and did they get it. The only one defending him and saying we had the man we want was the chairman.

“But he felt the pressure, finally, especially after the Las Palmas defeat.”

As you’d expect from football fans, Twitter was awash with sympathy for Moyes…well, sort of…
