  • A Man United fan has been mocked for his shocking 'Ole's at the wheel' tattoo.

    The 'daft' supporter got carried away after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won ten and drew two of his opening 12 games in charge at Old Trafford.

    It's all gone wrong since however, with the Red Devils finishing last season on a run of five defeats in their last nine league games.

    And a 4-0 opening day win over Chelsea this season proved to be a false dawn at Old Trafford – Solskjaer's side have won only one of their six Premier League matches since.

    The fan has had to endure a barrage of stick on social media.

    One user joked: “my guy planning to cut off his arm atm”.

    While another wrote: “hw daft can someone be to believe ole can change this man u side. Seriously!!!”

  • OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER will be sacked as Man Utd manager before New Year, predicts talkSPORT host Jason Cundy.

    He said: “I will make a statement here. There is no way he will be manager of Manchester United on January 1.

    “And it’s not his fault.

    “If you did a scratch team from Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City’s second XIs, you could make a squad better than Man United’s first XI.

    “Phil Foden absolutely walks into that team. Eric Dier, who can’t get into Spurs’ first XI, absolutely strolls in. [Oliveri] Giroud at Chelsea starts up front.

    “It’s like they are staring into an abyss.

    “This is possibly the worst Manchester United squad in Premier League history, plus another 10 years on top of that.

    “Don’t even think of talking about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer right now – forget him.

    “I think we need to look at Man United in a completely different way now. Manchester United are going to turn into Everton!”

  • PAUL POGBA is likely to be ruled out of the clash against Newcastle on Sunday.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he doesn't expect the World Cup winner to be fit in time.

    Asked if he thinks he will play against the Magpies, he said: “Probably not.

    “There's an international break as well. It might be a time for us to give them that 10-14 days extra to be ready for Liverpool.”

  • LEE SHARPE believes that Man Utd letting Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez leave was a risk.

    Lukaku was sold to Inter Milan while Sanchez was shipped off to the same club on a season-long loan.

    Sharpe said: “I think letting Lukaku and Sanchez go was a bit of a risk. I think for some reason Ole wasn't happy with Lukaku, although he wanted to play a quick tempo, balls into the channel game which suited Lukaku for me, rather than having his back to goal and being expected to hold it up.

    “I think the way they are playing now would have suited Lukaku a little bit more and I think they should have kept him until they could get someone else in.

    “I can understand letting Alexis Sanchez go because he’s been in-and-out with injuries and lack of form, but Lukaku I think they should have kept until they found a replacement.”

  • MANCHESTER UNITED have been urged to 'smash the bank' and sign Harry Kane.

    Former star Lee Sharpe, 48, believes that the Red Devils need a proven goal-scorer after the sale of Romelu Lukaku – and that Kane would fit the bill.

    Sharpe told MetaRatings: “Go and smash the bank and buy Harry Kane for whatever it takes.”

    “If they could have got Harry Kane for £40million (in 2015), they certainly should have offered the money and he certainly would have scored the goals.

    “He does go quiet in games, a bit like Cantona for us back in the day; he went quiet in games for 70-85 minutes at times.

    “But when times got tough, he would invariably come in with a goal from nowhere and won us games 1-0 a lot of times. That's what they're paid to do, and that's why they're such special players.”
