It was not the start to the 2020/21 season that Manchester United wanted as they lost 3-1 to Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in their first fixture.
It seems like the loss and such criticism has prompted Judge to act, as he has reportedly been in contact with intermediaries after Saturday’s defeat and the Red Devils are now stepping up plans to strengthen the defence. This news, as tweeted by @utdreport, has sparked plenty of reaction from the club’s fan base, with some believing it is too little too late and that Judge needs to be sacked due to the lack of activity in the window before the season started as they have only signed one player.
Meanwhile, some are refusing to get excited until seeing proof of fresh signings, which is understandable as there was heavy speculation around players like Jadon Sancho and Sergio Reguilon joining, but the latter moved to Tottenham Hotspur and a Sancho deal is looking very unlikely.
This highlights that Judge has a lot to do to get back on the good side of many supporters and getting a new defender as soon as possible would be a good start.
Here is what these United fans said in reaction to the news:

Matt Judge knows he’s been found out, and can’t hide behind the Glazers/Woodward abuse much longer.
