David Moyes has hit a new low after defeat to Manchester City.
Not least for leading Manchester United to another loss against a bitter rival in March but because of what he said in the post match interview about aspiring to play like City.
“We have played a very good side, playing at the sort of level we are aspiring to,” he said.
“We need to come up a couple of levels ourselves because at the moment we are not there.”
You can’t be serious Moyes? United are Premier League champions right now. Why would we aspire to be the club who has lived in our shadow?
On two occasions, Moyes talked making it harder for City to play before mentioning about United attacking and that is a telling sign of Moyes’ approach that has been so apparent this season.
The longer the season goes on, the more out of his depth he looks and his mentality just doesn’t seem to match United’s. Spot the difference.
Sir Alex Ferguson on City: "Sometimes you have a noisy neighbour. You cannot do anything about that."
Moyes: "We aspire to be like them."

Moyes 24 March, Daily Mail: “I don’t actually blame myself. It wouldn’t be right to say there are things you wouldn’t maybe look at in a different way. But I’ve looked back at many things and most of the things we’ve carried out we would continue to do.”
Moyes 26 March, BBC: “I am the one who picks the team. I take responsibility and always will do. It is disappointing. I thought it would be a tough year but I hoped it would be more competitive.”
Does Moyes even know what he is doing or saying right now? United fans would be better off giving him a sponsored silence before he can drop any more clangers.
The players certainly don’t seem to know what is happening and going into the Aston Villa game this weekend, he has backed himself a corner with United’s supporters after saying this.
