DISCLAIMER: I am not a Man Utd fan.

Was Solskjaer's sacking justified? 
How low can Man Uttd go, morally and in the league?  Relegation?
Are you laughing at their shoddy behaviour?

    His sacking has been coming for a few weeks now, especially when they lost at home to city, if i'm honest I never thought he was a good appointment.
    I suppose the big question now id who will replace him?

    As a Leeds fan, I wanted to see OGS stay in charge. I think it is the right decision, though I do wish that managers would be given as much time as possible to turn things around. 

    The options for a replacement are much smaller than back in the summer, so it'll be interesting to see what they do next.

    To the questions in turn.

    Sacking justified? Yes, absolutely. Built the second most expensive squad in history; overseen young players cease progress then go backwards; no indication of turning anything around; same mistakes and nauseum. 

    Can’t remember the name of the web site but the Football Writing Festival in Manchester highlighted 3 years ago that statistically United had hired a man who had conspicuously never managed above the equivalent of league ins before taking the Cardiff job. Every mistake he made in that job has been repeated in Manchester.  

    How low can United go? Lower if Carrick is put in temporary charge. Morally? Not sure I understand the question. If a morality question is ti be aimed at anyone in the EPL right now then it would surely be Newcastle?

    Relegation? Nope. Not a chance of it.

    Laighing at their shoddy behaviour? No, what shoddy behaviour?

    Aww I thought he did a good job to be honest, what a shame to see him go. He was perfectly ruining manchester united. I don't like premiership football and only watch big games like the euro and world cup, but always had a special kind of hate for manchester united.

    Lets hope they hire someone else who can ruin manchester united even more. (Fingers crossed)
