WHEN David Moyes was announced as the new Manchester United manager, many wondered if he’d be the perfect fit for the club. Thanks to his complaints about an imagined conspiracy against the Red Devils, it is clear that he’s a dream appointment.

Moyes has hit out at United’s opening fixtures, hinting that this is all a deliberate ploy by the Premier League to give them a tough opening.

In amongst their first five games, the champions have to play Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. Of course, they’d have to play them at some point anyway and they should quit whining, but there you go.

“I think it’s the hardest start for 20 years that Manchester United have had,” Moyes told the BBC on Thursday. “I hope it’s not because Manchester United won the league quite comfortably last year (that) the fixtures have been made much more difficult.

“I find it hard to believe that’s the way the balls came out of the bag, that’s for sure.”

That’d be David Moyes, in one of the most prestigious jobs in the whole world, bitching about the job being difficult at times. A job that sees all Premier League managers playing the same teams the same amount of times, expect Moyes has the luxury of a huge squad of internationals and a healthy bank account to lean on should injuries hurt them in January.

Poor old Manchester United. Everybody hates them and the powers that be have had a conspiracy against them, despite the fact they’ve only failed to win the Premier League 8 times out of 21.

How awful for them.
