“We weren’t good enough.”

Wow. Is that the best Solskjaer can muster when asked what went wrong?

Club legend, always, but a poor excuse for a manager. If he’s still there by the time we walk out at Spurs next Saturday there is something horribly, horribly wrong.

Maybe I’m not remembering some of Ole’s UTD career, but does scoring a champions league winning goal make you a club legend?

I guess you forgot about his 6 Premiership titles and 2 FA Cups, along with scoring the winner in the Champions League. A player who, despite being on the bench a lot, never complained and scored many many goals, important ones for us. Including scoring 4 when coming on as a late sub against Forest.

So yes, as a player a legend.

As a manager, not even close.

Hi everybody, have you missed me?
I couldn't have picked a better day to help my son move house!
Just got in and seen the score, read the reports and caught up on this thread.
Well, I think hilarious is the word.
0-5, surely they weren't all offside ......................... were they?
Ole HAS to go and, hopefully, he'll take Pogba with him.
Not sure I'll even watch it tonight on MOTD2.


Bugger .............................. just bugger. :mad:

I don’t know who’s in the market, Tash, so I genuinely don’t know. Believe it or not I’ve seen a number of fans on social media suggesting “club legend” Steve Bruce. Although I think he would do considerably better than Solskjaer, he doesn’t have the pedigree.

And we’ve seen what employing club legends achieves. I was extremely underwhelmed when Solskjaer was appointed but was happy to be patient and give him time. But no more.

I’ll watch what the pundits have to say. That’s the best bit these days.

No, hadn’t forgot about all the trophies he won there but for me that doesn’t make him a legend. If he had lead the line for all those years then that would be different. Very good player and servant for the club no doubt and not taking away any of his achievements for the club as a player, but not legend status for me.
