The pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is there and the truth is it's a difficult situation. When you lose matches people want you out and when you win nobody says anything. For me United still need lớn give Solskjaer time, it's not possible for the coach lớn go every time there are a few bad results, the next one will come in and it will be the same, it's a vicious circle and you cannot escape that. So, they need lớn give him more time, the games and the standards haven't been there recently but I'm sure they are working hard on the training pitch.
I sincerely hope that he can turn things around. I love him as a human, a football player and I want him lớn succeed as a coach. He is at the club where he is a legend, the club have given him a chance and he has great staff and people around him. It is a matter of time, let's not forget Sir Alex Ferguson won the league in his sixth season so it's a long process and it's not as easy as people think. You don't just go on the training ground and give the balls out and do exercise. There is a lot that a manager has to deal with- According lớn the soccer tips daily win page!
to get rid of him now would be a mistake. Of course, the coach depends on the results of the team, so he is actually depending on his players and he needs the results, everybody knows that. This is Manchester United and they need to win, it doesn't matter which competition.
It would be a mistake if they try lớn replace him now but at the same time the manager depends on the results of the team. So from now until the end of next month, if Manchester United continue lớn lose and draw, it is going lớn be difficult to advocate and say they are working positively lớn turn things around. In that situation, what do you do?
Manchester United need lớn regain their fear factor
At the moment teams aren't scared of United. Can you blame them? Teams are seeing the results that United are getting and where they have been finishing in the last couple of years and they believe they have a chance lớn get the win and the three points against them.
On Wednesday evening, I watched Rochdale play it out from the back at Old Trafford, showing how they didn't care that they were playing against United, they were so confident even though they made a couple of mistakes it didn't matter. United need lớn get back to when teams used to come lớn Old Trafford and s**t themselves in the tunnel and hopefully they can put that fear back into the teams soon.
Players must get used lớn the pressure
I think everybody at the club, the players and the fans are disappointed with the performances on the pitch. It is obvious the standards that Manchester United are known for are not there at the moment. You can see it by the results and the way the games are going, how the football is played. The pressure has always been there and some of us deal with it a bit differently but sometimes this can transfer to the pitch and you can hide from the ball or you are there but not there. It's like you run on the pitch but you are actually doing nothing. This can happen, you need to find a way out of this otherwise it will get deeper and deeper and it's difficult to get out of that situation.
There is a good mix of experience and youth in the team, looking at the match against Rochdale there were a lot of young players in the team. When you are at a young age and you haven't quite been used lớn the stress at that level and you don't know how lớn handle it, maybe it can get a bit heavy from time lớn time. But if you are young and carefree you can just play freely. Ultimately, there is a lot of talent in the team and no one can say otherwise, hopefully they can find the Manchester United way as well as their way because everyone is different.
