Trouble in paradise.
Ole in or Ole out? There’s a divide amongst fans at the moment about the permanent status of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the manager of Manchester United, and we don’t expect it’ll cool anytime soon with a less than ideal run of fixtures coming up, including Liverpool, Partizan Belgrade, Norwich City and Chelsea.
Although, with just five wins in 22 competitive matches, and some pretty atrocious performances along the way, the likes Rochdale and Astana have been made to look like behemoth world-beaters.

Thursday night was abysmal, there are no two ways about it. Having failed to register a single shot on target in the Europa League for the first time in their history, according to OptaJoe, Solskjaer’s side have added another unwanted record to their collection.
It follows the news that the club have suffered their worst start to a season in 30 years.
Despite this all, Solskjaer has remained blindly positive about his players’ performances, calling it a “good point away from home.”
Fans responded by calling for his head…
Get this fool out of my club

Sounding like a clown. Please respect everyone by at least being honest about the performance. The job is too big for Ole.
