Are they really or is it just the media do their utmost to generate attention-grabbing news?
Our start to the season has indeed been poor and the defeat, in the Champions League on Tuesday night, saw the pressure increase but are we close to seeing Ole Gunnar Solksjaer pushed out of his role?
According to The Daily Star that could very well be the case with this source implying a defeat, against Everton, this weekend could be the final straw.
Matters are further complicated, when it comes to Ole’s future, by The Manchester Evening News who are reporting that Manchester United have already approached the former Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur boss, Mauricio Pochettino, about replacing Ole.
But before the media go into overdrive and saturate the sports pages with such a sensational proposition, perhaps things are not as bad as we have indicated with Sky Sports reporting that the Old Trafford hierarchy still views Solksjaer as a long-term appointment.
But could that just be the equivalent of the dreaded vote-of-confidence?
I am not one that likes to see managers axed at the drop of the hat and I believe that he should be given the opportunity to turn things around.
But is that a view you concur with?
Do You Believe Solksjaer Is Still The Right Man For The Job?
