Poor David Moyes, he really can't seem to do anything right at the moment.
The Scot has come a long way since he was regarded as a tactical genius at Everton, who managed to get the club competing with England's elite on a shoestring budget.
David Moyes on Sunderland's problems: "We need to stop conceding and score more."

Since leaving the Merseyside club in 2013, Moyes oversaw a short and unsuccessful reign at Manchester United, was sacked from Real Sociedad and appears to be leading Sunderland towards relegation.
Throw into that, his cringe-worthy attempt to speak Spanish and his unwelcome threats to 'slap' a female reporter, and he really isn't viewed as one of Britain's greatest managers anymore.
Yet Moyes really can't help but make his own situation worse, and on Tuesday he gave a bizarrely simplistic press conference, in which he outlined his master plan to survive the drop.
DM: "We have played well in recent games. We have had good moments. We need to stop conceding and score more."

Sunderland tweeted on Tuesday saying: "DM: "We have played well in recent games. We have had good moments. We need to stop conceding and score more."
Really David? Concede less and score more?
As you can imagine the world of social media, which is in ever-waiting for someone to slip up, has had its' say. Here are a few of twitter's best reactions:

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes here, with the kind of insight that got him the big job... https://t.co/AjZHso9Ud3

Sunderland play Middlesbrough on Wednesday night where they must pick up three points if they are to survive the drop.
Hopefully Moyes will show further examples of his tactical nous by making bold decisions such as, electing to play with a goalkeeper or instructing his players to tie their laces.
