David Moyes is no longer present at Manchester United, but that hasn't stopped the tedious banners about him from flying over Old Trafford. During caretaker manager Ryan Giggs' first match in charge against Norwich, a plane flew over the stadium carrying the message "Thank u Moyes — Malta FF." According to the Times of Malta, this was a sarcastic message organized by fans of other clubs from a Maltese fan forum.

This banner comes just shy of a month after the "Wrong one — Moyes out" banner that started the trend. But while Moyes is still getting kicked even after he's been kicked out, Giggs is enjoying much warmer support that was strengthened by Man United's 4-0 win over Norwich.

Though Giggs still looks an unlikely long-term replacement for Moyes, maybe he will at least keep the skies over the stadium clear between now and the end of the season.
