David Moyes proclaimed a ‘football genius’ after beating Barcelona

By  |  0 Comments

David Moyes was the toast of Twitter after his Real Sociedad side beat Barcelona 1-0 to earn a shock win in La Liga.

So often on the end of jibes and mean memes, on Sunday night Moyes was the hero of the piece as a fantastically dogged performance from his side earned one of the best results of his career.

So after giving him so much abuse during and after his failed spell as Manchester United manager, it was only right that Twitter doffed its cap to Moyes.

Well, well, well. David Moyes, the football genius.

Come on Barca, you have a 350m Euro bench and you can’t beat David Moyes’ team?

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique, meanwhile, bore the brunt of abuse after leaving Lionel Messi and Neymar on the bench for the first half.

And doom was predicted for a Barca side which is so often accustomed to glory.

At this rate I predict Barca will finish 3rd or even 4th in the league and will get eliminated by Man City in the Champions League.
