United fans rally round Moyes

Manchester United fans showed their support for David Moyes by applauding the beleaguered manager - and booing the 'protest plane' - during the game against Aston Villa at Old Trafford.

Banner protest: An airborne message passes over Old Trafford during the game aga

The under-fire Scot - who came out to his place in the dug-out earlier than normal - was cheered by those inside the stadium and he raised his hands while applauding all four corners in response.

As anticipated, the plane carrying the message 'Wrong One - Moyes Out' flew over the ground shortly after kick-off.

A group of disgruntled fans were reported to have clubbed together £840 to pay for the airborne protest against Moyes.

However, the demonstration appeared only to have a galvanising effect on the Stretford End; there were boos when the plane passed overhead followed by chants of 'One David Moyes'.

When asked about the banner after United's 4-1 win over Aston Villa, Moyes said: "You just have to remain focused on the game - and that's what we have done.

"It is going to happen but I think, for the people who have spent money on the plane, it would have been better served by putting it into Darren Fletcher's colitis charity instead."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
