Is Solskjaer on the brink?

Speculation continues to rage about the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United manager, with some sources suggesting that he could be sacked if they lose their next match, away to Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup.

United’s season took another turn for the worse on Wednesday night as they lost at home to Burnley for 1962, with Solskjaer’s side looking bereft of ideas and creativity. To make matters worse, the atmosphere in the stadium turned toxic, with vitriolic personal abuse directed at both the Glazer family and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, and thousands of fans streaming out of Old Trafford before the end.

Criticism which had been vocal before the game from supporters and ex-players has now been ratcheted further a notch, and, whilst many of the problems, such as the club’s botched transfer policy are not his fault, he may be about to become the fall guy for the failings of others.
