Every manager must win football matches. There’s little point otherwise in persisting with the same methods otherwise.
It’s a difficult situation at Manchester United because we have terrible owners (the Glazers) and an incompetent board working like Minions for the American family, so it’s not just Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s fault.
But I would be lying if I said I didn’t fear for his job.
Mauricio Pochettino is waiting on the wings and it’s no secret that Ed Woodward is a fan, as per the Daily Star.
While I don’t believe Solskjaer is on the verge of getting sacked, his status could quickly change if United don’t pick up results between now and the next international break (November 10).
BBC reporter Simon Stone doesn’t see how the manager can give Harry Maguire a break now by dropping a hint that the manager could be in trouble if results don’t pick up.
Given all the games they have coming up, I don't see how Man Utd can give Harry Maguire a break but must be a question over whether he starts at Newcastle on Saturday. Solskjaer needs to start winning games.

The Red Devils are back in action on Saturday night against Newcastle at St. James’ Park. It’s never an easy trip for us but the lads should want to respond after losing 6-1 against Tottenham last time out.
