Pisa slowly started to lean. However I agree with the last line of your post.Well that tower lurched to the right, or left, (depending on your point of view)and has stopped, we are lurching downward.
Definition of lurched
“make an abrupt, unsteady, uncontrolled movement or series of movements; stagger”.
Yep, it makes sense to me as that is exactly what happened to that famous tower and what is happening right now at Utd.
We are lurching from one disaster to another.
