Share prices rise in the wake of Moyes' dismissal

The markets have reacted positively to the news that David Moyes has been dismissed, with MANU shares trading at their highest price of the season.

It is a time for respectful sadness and consideration. David Moyes has failed to become the manager he was trying to become, and while the decision to dismiss him from his position was probably correct, the appropriate response is one of empathy and sympathy. He gave it his best. It didn't work out. There's no need to make this any more awkward than it already is.

Unless, that is, you're the MANU share price. In which case, it's a time to leap into the air, keep leaping, and soar giddily into the sky screaming "I'm free! I'm free! Oh, I'm free! Look at me! I'm flying! Oh Malcolm, I'm flying!"

Markets are heartless swines. They care not for human feelings. They care not for crushed dreams. Poor David.
