Solskjaer tightrope walking after dismal showing in 4-2 defeat v Leicester City – opinion

It feels like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t have long left in charge of Manchester United.

The Reds suffered a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Leicester City on Saturday, after another poor performance which many of us saw coming.

I usually try to sit back and dwell on bad results when others prefer to take to social media to spill kneejerkery everywhere. That said, I would be lying to myself if I didn’t think, hold on, something needs to change here.

I have long supported the manager and believe he has done a lot of good since replacing Jose Mourinho, but have we reached a point where he can’t take us any further?

The next step is making this side Premier League winners and we are a million miles off.

Every man and his dog knows the midfield is crap, but we still set up in the same formation every week, like we are stuck in a hole where we’ve got to accept there’s nothing that can change tactically to make this team work better.

You will probably come across a flurry of online hate directed at the manager, but at least United fans have continued to sing his name at games – including today at the King Power Stadium. Ole is a legend after all.

It doesn’t mean questions get ignored or expectations get brushed under the carpet 8 games into the league season.

United’s performances have been dire and there is enough to suggest that ignoring the elephant in the room (midfield) in the summer before adding Cristiano Ronaldo was a classic brain fart moment.

Next week’s game against Liverpool is a must win and things need to change.

    Infant Mgr OGS is on track to win silverware for United….. he just needs to get the club relegated to win the Championship League next year, what a brilliant idea and strategy. And to think that we doubted his ability….. shame on us
