But after taking a break to watch the United game, I realised that the gruesome death of their top-four hopes holds much more fascination (plus my whole thesis really just boiled down to the self-evident fact that our injury-hit squad have been playing far too many games recently).
United's appointment of a potless 50-year-old, particularly one who had successfully sued Wayne Rooney for libel, always had great comedic potential. But the sheer flood of laugh-out-loud moments has really become quite staggering.
From the Stretford End belting out "Are you watching, Liverpool?" after United took an undeserved lead against an injury-ravaged Swansea last month, to Moyes's recent "I don't know what we have to do to win" post-match ramblings (not to mention this little gem), it's a gift that just keeps on giving.
Yesterday was a particularly good comedy haul. Moyes celebrating like he'd won the league after United's second, then accusing his players of "mental softness" and proclaiming that "it's worse than I thought" are just some of the highlights. I also enjoyed this YouTube video showing all 81 record-breaking crosses.
But I'd probably have to say that this picture is today's winner.
