A Manchester United fans group that have come together on the Red Issue fans forum, have funded £840 and organised for the following ‘Wrong One – Moyes Out’ banner to be flown over and around Old Trafford from 12:35-12:50pm on Saturday, when Manchester United take on Aston Villa in the weekends early kick-off.
The advertising banner cost fans £840 and was purchased from Blackpool’s Air Ads. Their Chief Pilot Chris Mustow, spoke exclusively to ITV News regarding the banner and the fly by around Old Trafford, he said:
“We have to ensure we keep the message clean – there’s no swear words in there – can’t be seen to insult people directly and defamation of character. This one will be fine – we’re not going to cause a riot or anything.
“In the past we’ve been asked to relay messages of a colourful nature which we’ve declined.
“At the end of the day we’re employed to do a job and that’s what we do.”
Speaking at his weekly press conference on Friday afternoon, the Manchester United manager said that the clubs fans were “entitled” to organise any protest they wishafter recent results, he also insisted that he does have the support from most United fans. He said:
“Everywhere I go I get great support from Manchester United supporters
“I was at a dinner last night for Darren Fletcher and there were Manchester United supporters who came up to me and said ‘come on, keep going, we understand exactly the situation the club is in and team is in’.
“They were really supportive and every time I have been to Old Trafford they have been great.
“I am seeing a lot different from what a lot of people are saying but I understand that results matter.”
Moyes was asked a question regarding the fans groups decision to organise a Moyes Out banner to which he added:
“People can do that. They are entitled to do that.”
“I am more driven to succeed more than ever. I want to change this position we are in now and I believe we can do that,” he said.
“I am hurting and the players are hurting but we are working hard.”
