They always say you should be careful what you wish for!
Last season it was, probably, inevitable that the services of Jose Mourinho would be dispensed with.
A poor run of results, allied with a style of football that alienated the support, saw the Old Trafford hierarchy wield the axe.
Seeking to steady the ship, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was brought in.
The Norwegian, always a popular figure among the Old Trafford faithful, started fantastically with a string of victories.
But those days now seem a distant memory with Manchester United having made their poorest start to a season for 30-years.
Although I’d suggest Solksjaer isn’t in any immediate danger of being axed, the pressure must be starting to build, even more so when it is pointed out that in his last 28 Premier League games Ole has amassed 49 points which is actually two fewer than the 51 points Jose Mourinho accumulated in his last 28 Premier League games.
What was that about being careful what you wished for?
