Sunderland do not want to sack the manager but they may be forced to rethink should further anger build during the remaining two home games from critics who have not taken to his tactics, selections or downbeat demeanour

It has been quite a fall from grace for the former Everton, United and Real Sociedad manager who endured chants of “We want Moyes out” from all corners of an unusually hostile Stadium of Light during Sunderland’s 2-2 draw with West Ham United on Saturday. There were also choruses of “David Moyes had a dream, to fuck our football team” and boos when the home manager ventured from his dugout.
