Manchester United fans are vehemently disagreeing with Peter Schmeichel after his tweet following the defeat to Newcastle United.
Is this the worst Manchester United team in the Premier League era?
The Old Trafford legend suggested that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be given time at the club, comparing his situation to that of Sir Alex Ferguson when he first arrived at the club (via Twitter).
The Scotsman didn’t win his first trophy at the club until 1989, winning the FA Cup three years after joining the north-west side in 1986 (via Transfermarkt).
Solskjaer is under-pressure after a less than impressive start to the season for the Old Trafford giants. The club have won just two of their eight games so far this season, leaving them languishing just two points above the relegation zone (via Premier League).
The loss to Newcastle extended the club’s winless run away from home to 11 games, last winning away against Paris Saint Germain back in March (via BBC).
It seems fans were disagreeing with Schmeichel over Solskjaer and his reign at the club as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:
Do your homework on what Fergie achieved BEFORE he was appointed.
Solskjaer’s only PL experience was relegating Cardiff.

Peter, the comparisons with SAF have to stop, totally different. The board is incompetent, Ole is totally out of his depth and the players aren’t good enough. Our midfield is weak & the attack is toothless. The game’s moved on, united are stuck in the past. Love Ole but he’s done

We’re 2 points off relegation Peter. Ole has to go

Unfortunately that was 30 years ago and football has changed dramatically both on and off the park in that time! Ole’s results got him the job in the first place, it will also be results that get him the sack.
