They may be the reigning Premier League champions but Manchester United appear to be the butt of most of the jokes in the Football Transfer Tavern following the closure of the transfer window on Monday.
A strong opening day victory over Swansea City was followed by a depressing tactical 0-0 draw against Chelsea at home and a disappointing defeat to arch-rivals Liverpool last weekend.
The arrival of Everton’s Marouane Fellaini has done little to appease United followers who were hoping for a bullish transfer window from Moyes. However instead they got one full of frustration and disappointment as several reported targets escaped the net.
Fortunately for Moyes he has a secret weapon up his sleeve in his predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson who has advised his predecessor to forget what has been so far, instead turning to ‘the force’.
In a hilarious viral circulating in the tavern today, Moyes is portrayed as Luke Skywalker from the classic film series Star Wars carrying Sir Alex as Yoda on his back with the Scot offering him some sound advice that opposition fans seemed to think often worked for the former United boss. Now where did we put Howard Webb’s number again?
May the force be with you David!
