Manchester United's 3-0 loss to Manchester City was a bitter one to swallow for the home fans—and judging by this picture, the security team seemed to fear the worst for the David Moyes "Chosen One" banner.

The tag was given to Moyes after he was anointed Sir Alex Ferguson's successor by the man himself.

But after a miserable season that tag has worn heavy on his shoulders, and while fans have been largely supportive, there is a sense that the tide may be turning.

Still, it looks as if the banner lives on to fight another day, just like Moyes for now.
