Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s mural from the front of Old Trafford has now been removed.
Manchester United simply had to change their manager. Sadly, our Baby Faced Assassin had reached his limit.
The results had started to take a turn for the worst, with the players seemingly giving up playing for Solskjaer. When that happens, it’s only a matter of time.
A 4-1 loss to Watford was the final nail in the coffin, though in the aftermath, Solskjaer has acted as classy as ever. We have to admire him for that.
Yesterday, the Solskjaer mural that was on the Old Trafford forecourt was pictured being removed. It seems like a pretty cruel thing to do, but I guess this is part and parcel of modern-day football…

It just feels a little brutal, but I guess things wouldn’t make sense if a new manager is appointed and the old bosses face is still plastered all over Old Trafford.
At the end of the day, I still firmly maintain the belief that Solskjaer has done a good job in charge. The squad is in a far better place than he found it in, while that dressing room believes they can do something special again.
It was just a case of Solskjaer hitting his threshold and we all assumed this would be the case. I don’t think any fan genuinely believed the Baby Faced Assassin could lead us to the major titles – but that’s not to say he hasn’t made a positive impact.
I’m just glad it all ended peacefully. Solskjaer can now relax and enjoy Manchester United as a fan, rather than going through the stress of preparing for a game every week.
