Steve Bruce lost his job at Newcastle last week, and another Premier League manager could suffer the same fate.
Manchester United were embarrassed on Sunday, losing 5-0 at home to rivals Liverpool. It was a horrific result for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that has put him under incredible pressure.
A lot of supporters are calling for him to leave, just days after lambasting Toon fans for their horrific abuse of Bruce.
That’s the narrative that has been spun about the departed Newcastle manager. In reality, the ‘abuse’ was mainly frustration at the football being played.
That is common place in sport, and considering how Newcastle did play under Bruce it was no surprise that fans were angry. The only surprise was how long he actually lasted in the job.
He got a lot of help in the media, defended by most for being a good man who is doing a great job. But despite such a great job, he’s left Newcastle in the relegation zone and without a win this season.
That record continued on Saturday against Crystal Palace, with Graeme Jones’ side managing to salvage a draw at Selhurst Park.
24 hours later and the shock of the weekend came at Old Trafford. Manchester United were woeful as Liverpool ran riot.
And Newcastle fans have sent Manchester United a message of ‘support’ in the aftermath of Sunday’s embarrassing defeat.
A lot of Man United fans want Solskjaer gone, and the Toon Army have been quick to remind them that another club legend is available.
