As if the start of the season for Manchester United wasn’t already bad, their own shop couldn’t even get the name of their latest high profile signing right.

"What do you think this smells of?  Futility?"  Asks eagle-eyed #GFOP Eleanor McConnell who found this on eBay for $32.59 and describes herself as "new Everton fan, c. July 2014."

Clearly a new Everton fan, as old Everton fans have cases of Eau de Moyes in reserve.

Things are going super-well for Manchester United at the moment. How do you lose to MK Dons in the League Cup 4-0? Also, this is probably fake but if someone meant to bet on United to win 4-0 and accidentally cashed in on Dons victory, even more LOLZ.
But hey, Angel Di Maria signed today.

Whenever IC Thistle are victorious over Celtic, I’m forced to post the greatest headline in football reporting history.

August 21, 2014
Malky Mackay and Iain Moody investigated by FA over 'sexist, racist and homophobic' text messages during time at Cardiff  | Mail Online

Well, that’s why talks with Malky Mackay for the Crystal Palace manager job came to a screeching halt. Racist, sexist & homophobic text messages between the then-Cardiff City manager and his-then sporting director, Iain Moody (in the same position with Palace until today), is not a good look to being employed in football again.

And that’s just the salacious stuff — apparently Cardiff owner Vincent Tan’s investigators located numerous amounts of questionable stuff about Moody & Mackay’s transfers for Cardiff.

Crystal Palace now has two major vacancies to fill and the FA has a big problem on its hands.
