As the clock ticks, Time seems not to be on the side of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford. The baby-faced assassin as he was fondly called during his playing days has indirectly stained the clean slate he had in the first few months in charge of Manchester United.

For many a-time this season, Ole’s side have endured tepid times with the club languishing in the fifth position on the log – all thanks to Ole’s inability to make United stronger and competitive like before.

The 20-time EPL champions lost to Burnley on Wednesday night in an unacceptable manner at Old Trafford. (Making it the first time United will lose at home to Burnley in 58 years). Hence the clamour for Ole to be relieved of his duties at United.

In the game against Burnley, supporters of Manchester United were seen heading for the exits of the theatre of dreams long before the final whistle. A dicey situation the club never found itself under David Moyes, Louis Van Gaal or Jose Mourinho.

How United’s season has shaped up after the 4-nil triumph over Chelsea at Old Trafford can best be described as inconsistent, aimless and desultory. No iota of change or improvement from what United enjoyed under their three past managers. Yeah, ENJOYED.

The back pain that was envisaged to be found wanting after the arrival of a “mature”, “composed” and “upgraded” Harry Maguire to come and compliment the efforts of the personnel in charge of United’s defense has only grown worse.

The United team has steadily lost its fear factor and interestingly, currently have no identity and lack confidence. Time is really not on the side of the Norwegian.

In recent days, United have been linked to some ridiculous players which naturally, shouldn’t even dream about playing for United but because of the precarious stage United presently are, every player in the transfer market is unexpected.

The United fanbase have become impatient and are planning on staging a walk protest to show the United hierarchy that things have nosedived at united. Should we be surprised? Hell no. A manager who after 32 matches hasn’t done better than his predecessor should be shown the exit door.

During the days of Jose Mourinho, United had scooped 51 whooping points from 72 possible points but Under Ole? He managed to ganner 34 points in possible 72 points. This alone is enough for any serious club to sack it’s manager but because of the gorry structure at united, Ole is still confident of having his job intact.

The latter days for Ole at United is here apparently, but the question is how long will it take? For a manager who seems to be bent on playing the way his mentor played when clearly football has gone beyond that stage is obviously hapless and bereft of ideas.

Obviously, Ole’s interim reign was a flash in the Pan. And something happens when there’s a flash in the Pan, turn away the Pan and let the flash stay on the ground. One thing should be done to Ole – get him sacked!
