Bookmakers: Moyes believes that his side showed ‘mental softness’

David Moyes, Manchester United manager, felt that on Sunday his side showed “mental softness” in their 2-2 Premier League draw with Fulham, and bookmakers could see that United were not at their best at all.
Pay per head sportsbooks and sports bookmaker services saw that United were frustrated by a Fulham side who were sitting back and allowing them to consistently attack, especially after an early side goal by Steve Sidwell.
They were able to completely dominate the match but didn’t equalise until Robin van Persie scored in the 78th minute, and bookmakers saw that the fans were somewhat relieved by this.
Then less than two minutes later, bookmakers saw that Michael Carrick scored what appeared to be the winning goal, but with an injury-time header, Darren Bent made sure that Fulham claimed a point.
When asked if he was unhappy with his mens’ mental fragility, Moyes said: “Yeah – you could use maybe, maybe a sort of mental softness that we didn’t see the job out and get the job done.
“So I would agree with that.”
Moyes said that their latest slip-up hurt the team – a result which leaves them nine points behind Liverpool, who are at fourth-place, and pay per head sportsbooks can see that things got more complicated for United.
“The players are hurting. I can see them every day, they hurt because the results aren’t going the way they want,” he added.
And price per head services also know that it’s not easy at all for Moyes’ side.
“They’re really good professionals in the way they go about their work. The way I see them training makes me feel they will get results, there’s no doubt about that.”
Bookmakers and pay per head sportsbooks know that Moyes’ side are now facing a very big test to catch up with Liverpool and finish at fourth place – and to secure a spot in the UEFA Champions League next season – but the manager is still hopeful.
“We have to win all our games,” he continued.
“So you can ask me (about Liverpool) as many times as you like. I’m going to keep saying we have to win the games.
“We should have won that one today. And we needed to as well, I felt.
