Gary Neville has said on his Sky Sports podcast that Manchester United are far too inconsistent under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
We agree but feel Solskjaer is running out of time to get it right.
I’m desperate to see the Manchester United legend succeed in this job, although talk about Mauricio Pochettino coming in won’t go away and we would naive to downplay it.
“I was glued to the telly from half past 11 [on Saturday] morning,” Neville said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
“I was thinking about the game, thinking about results leading up to the game, thinking about reports earlier in the week and thinking this needs a performance here.
“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needed a performance, the club needed a performance, those players needed a performance. I think United deservedly came out on top in the end. They’re just inconsistent. You think the performance against Leipzig, the performance against Paris Saint-Germain and at Goodison Park.”
Neville is right but nobody seems to have answers as to why we’re so inconsistent.
Last Saturday wasn’t the first time I felt Solskjaer needed a result and performance. It wasn’t the first time that on the Strettycast we called for a response from the players after their poor displays against Arsenal and Istanbul prior to Everton away.
But what matters is whether Solskjaer has the backing of executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
