A series of reports stated that the Scot's ill-fated reign would be brought to an end, possibly even before this weekend's league match at home to Norwich City, following a listless performance against Moyes' former club Everton. Those reports cited the 2-0 defeat - after which Moyes praised the standard of his side's play - represented the final straw for the Glazer family, which owns the club.
