It has not been an enjoyable last few months for Manchester United and most particularly under-fire manager Louis van Gaal.
Indeed, amid a run of just four wins in their last 14 Premier League fixtures, the Dutchman has taken plenty of stick for his controversial possession-based philosophy.
And to make matters worse, United produced an incredibly abject display this afternoon as they lost at home to Southampton.
The Red Devils recorded just one shot on target and eventually succumbed to a late goal from recent Saints signing Charlie Austin, whose 87th-minute strike sealed a 1-0 defeat.
United fans have been loudly voicing their criticisms of Louis van Gaal for some time – especially amid their continually conservative displays at Old Trafford – and today’s result may have just tipped them over the edge.
Now five points off a Champions League spot, Red Devils supporters are absolutely fuming on social media. Here are some of the best responses to United’s 1-0 defeat:

#MUFC board wouldn't care about the turgid football under Van Gaal unless it put precious revenue under threat. That threat is now very real
