ut his option year with the team. Lions GM Wally B (19th Sep 16 at 6:08am UTC)
MANCHESTER, England -- David Moyes is set to pay the price for Manchester Uniteds spectacular and sudden decline by being fired as manager of the deposed English champions, with his departure potentially being sealed on Tuesday. Curtis Lofton Saints Jersey . United stayed silent Monday, refusing officially to guarantee Moyes future at Old Trafford amid widespread reports in online stories by British newspapers that his 11-month tenure was about to end after losing the support of the board. It appears Moyes position has become untenable since Sunday, when United lost 2-0 to Everton in the Premier League to ensure Englands biggest club over the last two decades will miss out on Champions League qualification for the first time in 19 years. It also left United seventh in the league, a season after winning its 20th championship by 11 points, and on course for its lowest league finish since 1990. Even being the so-called "Chosen One" -- a nickname given to Moyes after he was hand-picked for the position by predecessor Alex Ferguson -- is unlikely to save the 50-year-old Scot, who signed a six-year deal at a club famed for preaching the values of stability. Leading British bookmakers have all slashed their odds on Moyes being removed and many of Tuesdays newspapers are reporting Ryan Giggs, a club great who is on the coaching staff at United, could take temporary charge until the end of the season. "Theyre going to have to clarify this position quickly," said former United defender Gary Neville, who described the clubs handling of the situation as "repulsive." "The average manager gets sacked every 12 months and Ive always felt Manchester United should be different, hold themselves up as a club that basically stands against whats happening in the game." Nevilles brother, Gary, is a member of Moyes coaching team. Moyes has been unable to continue the success of Ferguson, who ended his 27-year reign at the end of last season after winning the league for his 38th major trophy as United manager. Moyes guided United to the quarterfinals of the Champions League, losing to Bayern Munich, but the teams domestic form has been woeful by its high standards. United is 23 points behind current leader Liverpool, 13 adrift of the Champions League places, and has slumped to a string of humiliating losses including to fierce rivals Liverpool and Manchester City at home. United has been defeated a club-record 11 times in the league and 10 times in 22 matches in all competitions in 2014. The deposed champions appear ready to spend considerable sums over the summer to strengthen its squad but their American owners, the Glazer family, may not be willing to trust Moyes to oversee such heavy spending. He was indecisive in the transfer window in the last off-season, bringing in only Marouane Fellaini from former club Everton for 27.5 million pounds ($43 million), and the Belgium midfielder has been a disappointment. United broke its club record transfer fee to sign Juan Mata for 37.1 million pounds ($61.2 million) in January but Moyes has been unable to regularly play the Spain playmaker in his best position. Dutch coach Louis van Gaal and Borussia Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp have been linked with any possible vacancy. With fan backing appearing to ebb away, Moyes said after the loss to Everton that United was "on track" in its transition period post-Ferguson. "We are rebuilding," he said, "we have got things we want to do. "The supporters have been incredibly behind the team and supported the team throughout. They realize it has been a difficult season ... They understand it has not been good, I recognize it has not been good, it needs to be better." Anthony Spencer Saints Jersey . The Jets (10-10-2) are sixth in the Central Division with 22 points, two points behind the fifth-place Dallas Stars. Delvin Breaux Jersey . Markus Granlund scored the shootout winner as the Heat defeated the Hamilton Bulldogs 3-2 in the American Hockey League. "It was tough on us, losing the last few games, and with this being our last game before Christmas we will definitely take the win," said Granlund. http://www.officialsaintslockroom.com/cj-spiller-saints-jersey/ . Luol Deng was out with flu-like symptoms, and Kyrie Irving, who missed shootaround because he was ill, fought through his sneezing spells to help lead the Cavaliers to a 115-113 win over the Washington Wizards on Friday.Korey Banks got his wish and has been traded from the BC Lions. The veteran defensive back and five-time CFL All-Star has been sent to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in exchange for non-import receiver Kito Poblah. It seemed only a matter of time before Banks would be out in BC after making it known he has no interest in playing out his option year with the team. Lions GM Wally Buono meanwhile, had stated he didnt intend to renegotiate Banks contract. The 10-year CFLer has played the last eight years in BC. Last year the 34-year-old recorded 46 tackles and two interceptions. For his career Banks has 442 tackles and 37 interceptions. "Were grateful for Koreys contributions to our club and we wish him the best in Winnipeg," Buono said in a teeam statement. Khairi Fortt Saints Jersey. "Korey adds an immediate presence in our locker room, veteran leadership both on and off the field, and we look forward to welcoming him to the Bomber organization," Bombers GM Kyle Walters said in a team statement. "We also wish Kito all the best in Vancouver and thank him for his contributions to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers." In Poblah the Lions get a three-year veteran and former first-round supplemental pick. The Central Michigan product has 53 career catches for 534 yards. Poblah missed all but one game last season. Winnipeg also released quarterback Jason Boltus, defensive back Bo Smith, linebacker Daniel Sheffield, running back Mario Fannin and defensive end Mathieu Boulay.
