Seven wins, seven draws and nine defeats – this is not the record of midtable National League North side but 20-time champions of England Manchester United beneath Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. It is not genuinely gone to program, has it?
What ever car Solskjaer was ‘at the wheel’ of (how could we neglect that oh-so catchy chant) has been identified in a ditch with its wheels, engine, seats, windows, radio and doors ripped off. A record of 25 targets in 28 speaks volumes of the type of blistering entertainment we have come to anticipate from the as soon as-terrific United, who are now aimlessly bumbling about like Jurassic Park’s Dennis Nedry attempting to locate his glasses in the rain.
Is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer beneath-rated tactically?
Thanks to his previous heroics with the club, namely a particular Champions League-winning objective, Solskjaer has been afforded a level of time and patience that valuable handful of other people would take pleasure in if they identified themselves in a related position.
According to OptaJoe, United have won 49 points in 28 games Premier League games beneath the Norwegian, which was two fewer than they did in their final 28 beneath Jose Mourinho. Rather worryingly, that contains the amazing run the club went on at the starting of his reign (ten wins in 12).
Max Rushden delivered the harsh reality of Solskjaer’s dubious stint at Old Trafford…
“It’s not necessarily the dressing space. It is above that.”
“It depends on what they want that club to be.”
