Ole Gunnar Solksjaer may have scaled another hurdle as United boss after an impressive weekend saw Manchester United beat Everton.
In recent weeks, Ole has been on the hot seat following a number of inconsistent displays and results by the team. Good wins against PSG and RB Leipzig were dampened by poor losses against Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir.
The win against Everton, however, was much needed as many fans, blogs and pundits fancied him to be fired should United lose the game.
Ultimately, this sums up Ole’s tenure so far with the Red Devils. Whenever the team plays well, they look a very dangerous side and a threat to the opposition. In the same vein, when they play badly, the team looks a pretty awful side.
These dwindling displays have gone on for two years since Ole took the managerial position back in 2018. A couple of years later and nothing has changed really; not his tactics, not the nature of results, and certainly not in the club winning any trophies.
This season has been particularly frustrating. While United have done well in the Champions League (topping a tough Champions League group) they’ve been rather poor in the Premier League, with the win against Everton pushing the Red Devils only to 14th position on the log.
In the last five Premier League fixtures, United have won two games, lost two games and played out one draw; another testament to the unpredictable nature of the team.
Ole will be more than happy with the international break, as it will afford him a breather to get back to the drawing board to think up ways in making the team deliver good results consistently.
With fans patience wearing thin, however, it won’t be too long till they come out once again to clamour for OleOut when the results aren’t favourable.
