DAVID MOYES, CHRIS Moyles. One is a football manager, one is a radio DJ. But which is which?

Alex Ferguson’s replacement Moyes was sacked as Manchester United manager today after a disastrous first season managing the club, which saw the team toppled from their spot as last year’s Premier League champions to seventh place this year.

That makes sense so far, but people are having a little trouble telling the difference between David Moyes and former BBC Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles. A lot of trouble, actually.

It started like this

“If he’s not Chris Moyles, then who is he?”

Older people and those clueless about football are especially confused

Even Simon Pegg got caught out

And Chris Moyles himself is all like “What???”

To confirm: David Moyes is the ex-manager of Manchester United.

Chris Moyles used to do a breakfast show on BBC Radio 1. Great. Got it now.
