David Moyes Writes Unfortunate Newspaper Column in 2010

BR-UK StaffAnalyst IIIJanuary 23, 2014

It ain't easy being David Moyes these days. 

His Manchester United side cannot seem to win, drunk fans are phoning Sir Alex Ferguson (well, attempting to), as per GMP Manchester North, for help and his face says it all.

Now, a harmless column he penned for the Sunday Times back in 2010 entitled, "How to win a shootout" is being brought back to the forefront. 

This, of course, is at the heels of United's dreadful performance against Sunderland in a penalty shootout in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night. 

His players may have had something to do with United's shortcomings, but unfortunately, his team couldn't follow their manager's 2010 advice in newsprint. 

Hat tip to 101 Great Goals for the find.
