Twitter had the Manchester United manager in its sights once again after more calamity befell Manchester United. Meanwhile, Arsenal fans debate just how good their team is and Gus Poyet is days from the sack.
Moyes has made all my weekends miserable since He came to Manchester United. #MoyesOut

To be fair, that's a feeling common to Manchester United fans, many of whom are experiencing that the sucking vortex of despair as some buffoon mismanages your club into oblivion for the first time. Moyes's crime this week? Bringing on Chris Smalling for Wayne Rooney in the 87th minute when 1-0 up against Southampton.
Smalling on for Rooney while Kagawa sits on the bench. If ever there was a summary of Moyes' approach — United Rant (@unitedrant) October 19, 2013
That was coming. Giggs for Nani, Welbeck for Fellaini and Smalling for Rooney. What did Moyes expect? — Matthew Stanger (@MatthewStanger) October 19, 2013
Maybe he expected Manchester United to keep hold of a lead for five minutes at Old Trafford?
And, for the record, Sir Alex Ferguson gave Giggs, Welbeck and Smalling a combined 36 substitute appearances last season.
WHAT DOES SOLDADO DO?
Tottenham's Roberto Soldado has made an uncertain start to the season, leading to plenty of this sort of thing:
A few minutes and a tidy finish later, anything wrong with him is actually the fault of his team-mate who have yet to tune into his unique brand of genius.
Soldado was quality today. His touch is world class and a great goal to top It off. Players around him will learn his skills and play — Mark Carter © (@Gingeryid81) October 20, 2013
GOAL OF THE (ENTER TIME PERIOD HERE)
Speaking of genius, Jack Wilshere scored a truly brilliant goal for Arsenal against Norwich on Saturday.
Goal of the season contender at Arsenal...brilliant team goal finished by Wilshere — Jeremy Wilson (@JWTelegraph) October 19, 2013
Not enough hyperbole!
Wilshere goal of the season? Behave... Goal of the decade at the least! — Brett Markell (@brettblade) October 20, 2013
That's more like it. But according to some, it wasn't even the goal of the half.
Ramsey's goal was even better :O — Joe Wong (@joethewong) October 19, 2013
Now, we are quite aware that #(MANAGER)OUT has become a well-worn internet meme, but even we were surprised how quickly Sunderland's Gus Poyet started trending. All it took was a teamsheet featuring casino-based money-writher Phil Bardsley.
Y'know, and a 4-0 defeat to Swansea.
