thumbnail Hello,

The Manchester United boss has endured a dismal debut campaign, with calls for him to be axed increasing in recent weeks

The calls are probably at their loudest now for David Moyes to be sacked, as his debut campaign in charge of Manchester United continues to go wrong.

A humiliating 3-0 loss at home to bitter rivals Liverpool over the weekend was the latest debacle in a dismal season, with the Red Devils already knocked out of both domestic cup competitions and languishing in seventh in the Premier League table, a massive 18 points behind leaders Chelsea.

They now face the task of overturning a 2-0 deficit against Olympiakos in the second leg at home in the Champions League Round of 16 on Thursday morning, with their recent form not giving their supporters much confidence.

The heat has turned up on the Scot, with many calling for the axe to fall on his head - immediately. Reports have also suggested that the United board may finally be losing faith in a man they appointed on a six-year contract, with the next three matches against Olympiakos, West Ham and Manchester City crucial to whether he stays or go.

Surprisingly, the majority of Goal Singapore readers believe that Moyes should be allowed to continue, with 43% indicating that he should be given the chance to build his own team. With the promise of funds to spend in the next transfer window, plus the chance to ship out ageing stalwarts and bring in his own targets, perhaps they feel he should be given a fair chance to be judged by a team he has assembled.

A further 41.5% are not too impressed, indicating that Moyes has to go now, while the remaining 15.5% give him the next three games to prove himself.

United take on Olympiakos at 3.45a.m at Thursday morning, Singapore time.

Poll of the day

Is it time for Moyes to be sacked?
