David Moyes has provided pranksters with a subject since taking over the Manchester United job since Sir Alex Ferguson retired last season. So it was no surprise when his sacking earlier this morning was met with a host of jokes and memes making light of the end of his United career. Here, we select our favourite ones so far.
Ranging from where he can go now, film relations and the downright hilarious, Moyes will want to stay off the internet until the news of his dismissal quietens down. While the first may not seem to be a joke with a well-known bookmakers' giving odds on Moyes' next destination, the 500/1 offer on him becoming an HMV shop manager, CEO of the Co-op, the murderer of Lucy Beale in Eastenders or the next presenter of newsnight were too good to turn down.
