A group of Man Utd fans planning a fly-past at Old Trafford with a ‘Moyes Out’ banner could end up parading their widely ridiculed sign in front of a half-empty stadium.
Supporters are struggling to get to the ground in time for today’s 12:45pm kick-off between United and Aston Villa, after a lorry overturned near Old Trafford, causing huge traffic tailbacks.
The widespread delays could yet see kick-off pushed back to enable fans more time to get to their seats, meaning the ‘Wrong One – Moyes Out’ banner could prove to be a complete flop.

Pictures emerged of the sign yesterday, with many supporters on Twitter admitting their embarrassment and instead urging fellow fans to back under-fire boss David Moyes, who has endured a challenging time at Old Trafford this season.
The banner was also ridiculed by fans of other clubs and could be set for further mocking today should the local traffic incident cause supporters, players and officials to miss the message altogether.
