Manchester United Balls: Daily Mail Leads Contest To Write The Most Useless David Moyes Story
MANCHESTER United are without a full-time manager. The players are running wild. Order has broken down. The Daily Mail’s Richard Arrowsmith spots the truants tearing up the shopping precinct. Well, not quite:
Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones and Rafael play a relaxing round of golf the day after David Moyes is sacked by Manchester United
Wow, indeed. Is that the most pisspoor David Moyes story yet printed?
Arrowsmith ploughs on, attempting to weave a narrative from a single thread:
Instead of commiserating the departure of their beleaguered manager David Moyes, several Manchester United players preferred to recover from the loss… with a relaxing 18 holes of golf.
Yeah, that’s what we thought: what’s wrong with hookers? Under Sir Alex, it wasn’t all golf – and look how successful United were. Arrowsmith calls the players “highly paid untouchables” (on contracts), adding:
…despite having free time on his hands, their former boss wasn’t invited to take part in a four-ball.
They didn’t invite Fergie, either. Maybe he and Moyes could form their own four ball with, say, Ron Atkinson and Jenny Thompson?
