Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is trying to be brave in his bid to help get Manchester United back on top and answer the calls of supporters.

It stands to reason that a squad, assembled at eye-watering cost on the whims of three different managers with differing outlooks, none of which were a natural fit for United, will have shortcomings and drawbacks.

Yet if United are to win that twin battle, whether it is with Solskjaer or another manager with a sense of adventure, the club's power brokers will also have to be brave, and ruthless, not least over the futures of three forwards, Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku, who look increasingly like square pegs in round holes.

Old Trafford wants silverware, but it also wants electrifying football, the sort which Paris St-Germain produced on the way to schooling United in the Champions League on Tuesday.

How do United replace the suspended Pogba in the second leg against PSG following his red card on Tuesday?

Alex Ferguson once described United as "a bus that waits for no man" but, in recent years, it has become a bus that keeps acquiring passengers who never get off.

It just really hit home on a night that started brightly, but ended very badly, and United fans must hope executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was taking careful note.
