It says something about the current climate among Manchester United fans that despite the team winning yesterday’s Premier League game against West Brom, the clamour for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal just got louder.

The upshot is that after nearly two years in charge, Solskjaer still has not persuaded the majority of the fans that he is the right man to lead the team back to the glory days enjoyed under Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Matt Busby.

Fans were not convinced by the style of football played, the tactics employed, the team selection or the perceived lack of passion among many of the players.



During the summer, when it became clear that the board was not going to back Solskjaer in the transfer market, many fans predicted that the club’s owners were simply repeating a cycle in which the manager is left high and dry and then scapegoated and sacked, only for another to be appointed and the cycle reset itself.

He established Spurs as a regular top four side and took them to the Champions League final with virtually no investment.

And yet despite watching that happen with their own eyes, many fans who initially sympathised with the Norwegian for being the latest sacrificial lamb have found themselves saying ‘yes, but, maybe he does need to go …’, just as they did with Louis van Gaal and José Mourinho.

The simple fact is that in his nearly two years in charge, Solskjaer has, by contrast, underachieved with a squad that should by any measure be capable of challenging for top honours and playing the kind of football that is in Manchester United’s DNA.
