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...
Anoeta is shouting 'Moyes go home'. In English. So he understands it. Things look bad— Guillem Balague (@GuillemBalague) October 18, 2015
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...
So many arguing over Moyes and yet we still have Tim haha! Oh villa! Why do you do this to us #avfc— o ƃ Ǝ ǝ ɥ ⊥ (@TheEgo74) October 18, 2015
Sections of #avfc support don't want David Moyes as manager. Same fans who championed Sherwood on arrival & want him to stay. Deary me.— Cian Carroll (@CianByName) October 18, 2015
We are 100% David Moyes' level. Which in itself is quite a sad truth. I don't really think he's that good but he's better than Timbo! #avfc— J . (@The_Wonderball) October 18, 2015
Well as Moyes is staying in Spain and Rodgers is going on holiday , Ancelotti it is #AVFC— James Stokes (@Stokesey84) October 18, 2015
Wish people would stop taking about Moyes or Rodgers or whoever. Keep getting my hopes up that Sherwood has left. #avfc— Aron T (@AronTomlin) October 18, 2015
So Moyes has said he isn't going to villa, well he's hardly going to say he is is he? #avfc— M (@MrMWB) October 18, 2015
