David Moyes has become a laughing stock. The Manchester United job was a disaster. Real Sociedad was a damp squib. As for Sunderland, that was the disaster to end all footballing disasters. But is he actually a bad manager? As for all, there was a reason he got the United job (and not just on the technicality of a legend that recommended him). The serene nature of his last eight seasons at Everton, in which he delivered at least 8th place in all of them, seems a far cry from the uncertainty that has largely followed. There was once a time when the Scot was roundly admired for his ability to spot a bargain, to organise a side, and to squeeze every last drop out of them. So why has that changed?

Chelsea face a tough away trip to Rome in the return leg of their group stage clash with Roma.

Should Deeney choose not to appeal, he will be unavailable for The Hornets' trips to Everton and Newcastle, as well as a clash with West Ham at Vicarage Road.
