I remember some absolutely awful performances at times under Moyes but bloody hell that team could dig out a win or draw when playing badly because they had proper character.
I remember more than once Cahill popping up with an 89th minute header, or Baines firing in a cross to grab a draw... Jagielka with a tremendous block at the death.
You can argue about the set up and manager but Jesus this team have absolutely no character what so ever!
The amount of poor touches, misplaced passes, showing no responsibility to take the game by the scruff of the neck... You can see there's a huge mental weakness when players leave the ball for each other instead of taking it and their own player if needed, when instead of driving in to the box they pop it backwards to someone else to do it.
We used to rely on characters like Cahill, Osman, Jagielka, Baines, a prime Coleman. Now we're looking at Keane and Iwobi to turn things around... It's just not going to happen.
At least Gray looked interested when he came on, and with DCL and Richarlison to come back there should be enough there to avoid going down, but it's a disgrace we're relying on such a weak set of characters after all the money spent.
I don't believe for one second bringing in another manager resolves our problems, it's been the same for every single one of them.in recent times, and the constant is certain players playing for each of them.
