Things are bad right now for David Moyes. Numerous teams are winning at Old Trafford for the first time in decades. Home fans are leaving early at 0-1. The Dutch fitness coach is criticising the club over Robin van Persie's injury woes.

Wilfried Zaha is tweeting denials he really shouldn't be. Roberto Martinez is working wonders at Everton. But most serious of all, by a distance, are the comments of Rio Ferdinand.

Rio has revealed that under Alex Ferguson, the players knew well in advance of games if they were in the team or not. Moyes announces his teams much closer to kick-off, which causes Rio to waste 'nervous energy' worrying about his inclusion.
