Villa fans react on Twitter as Moyes loses... then addresses his future

The Real Sociedad boss has been linked with replacing the current man in charge at Aston Villa.

Aston Villa fans are hearing a lot about David Moyes of late.

Indeed, Tim Sherwood's current struggles in charge of the Midlands outfit have seen Moyes linked with replacing him. But the Scot isn't doing that well himself.

In fact, his record at Real Sociedad so far this season is almost identical to Sherwood's. And, according to the Daily Mirror, Moyes has refuted any links to Aston Villa.

He is quoted as saying: "During pre-season I had contact with clubs, which is normal, because they know my statistics, but my intention is to stay here at La Real.

"I'm not thinking about anything else. You saw the hard work and determination the players put in, how they fought."

The thing is, however, Moyes' Sociedad future could be taken out of his own hands if he is relieved of his duties. Spanish journalist Guillem Balague demonstrated how bad the situation is for the former Everton and Manchester United boss right now...

So could he be free to take over at Aston Villa, after all, with his comments simply smoke and mirrors?

Villa fans took to Twitter on Sunday night to evaluate the possibility. Opinion is split but it seems a lot more supporters would be happy with Moyes in charge than with Sherwood.

Here's how the Villa faithful responded to another Moyes defeat and the Scot's comments on his future...
