Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has three games to save Manchester United job

As editor of Stretty News and someone with the utmost respect for the manager, I take no joy in speculating over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future as it seems unlikely that he will turn things around by taking Manchester United where we need to be.

He is a legend after all – someone likeminded Reds will always have the utmost respect for.

Nobody predicted that United would finish in second place last season, but now we want to see the team push on and mount a proper title challenge. We look a million miles away from doing that despite signing Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

Something has to change.

The 5-0 defeat at home to Liverpool on Sunday was a bitter pill to swallow. It will take some time to get over, but as a fan I’m already looking to Saturday evening’s game against Tottenham with the belief it is our duty to get behind the manager and team through thick and thin.

However, Jason Burt from The Telegraph has the latest on the manager’s current situation and it doesn’t sound good for Solskjaer, who has reportedly been given three games to save his job at Old Trafford.

It may even come as a relief to the Norwegian given how United lost 5-0 to our arch-rivals at the weekend. Everyone walking out of the ground knew a comeback was becoming impossible.

Reports today suggest there was a high-level meeting involving Sir Alex Ferguson and Martin Edwards, as per Manchester Evening News reporter Samuel Luckhurst, so it’s no wonder we’ve had updates to report on tonight because something would’ve been briefed to one of the news hounds.

Verdict

Ultimately, I think it says everything you need to know about Richard Arnold that he’s had to drag Ferguson and Edwards in to dig them out.

I spoke to a lot of United fans outside the ground and nobody had any belief in Solskjaer, that he was going to cut it.

The board clearly isn’t set on a solution but they ought to get to work if our bad run continues.

It is worth noting that after the next three matches, we head into another international break.

How convenient.

    The Nowegian is all, but real competition to Klop, Pep Tochel (…there some othets). And thats the key for his future. Mr. Woodward should go even before him.

    Hello, good day!
    Please help me to pass this message to the Manchester United management board that they should relieve Ole Gunnar Solskjaer of his duties and bring ERIK TEN HAG from Ajax football club. Three matches ultimatum are too much for Ole to save his job. One match is okay. Bring ERIK TEN HAG. ERIK TEN HAG is a very good coach who can bring out the best from the Manchester United players and as well compete with Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Kloop and Thomas Tuchel for major domestic trophies and continental honors. OLEOUT! OLEOUT! OLEOUT! BRING ERIK TEN HAG!

    I love Ole for what he’s done as a player and as a manager for us. Ole finally has his team and no room for excuses. That being said, adding new players can set the team play back at times as players need time to adjust to each other. Ronny being the exception. Do I think Ole can turn things around given the more time? I think he can. I want him to come good and stay good. I do think Conte would get the team over the hump quicker and is the pedigree we need to win trophies and that is the bottomline without sounding like a gloryhunter.
