Ole paying with his job for yet another defensive horror show. How almost absurd that the player who Ole has repeatedly benched game after game , Donny Van De Beek, was the one who tried his hardest to rescue the game. David De Gea was the other player to cover himself in glory with a double save from Sarr’s penalty double take. Now, Bruno is the blue eyed boy of the United team and I get it he has the ability to turn a match around a moment from brilliance. Let’s face it he hasn’t been passing as successfully as he had when he joined the team last year. Of course when a corporation is failing the CEO is responsible and the buck should not stop with Ole but with the board. They have made horrific mistake after mistake since Sir Alex went. The latest being the decision to hold on to the Norwegian as a coach after a long break like the international window. A new coach would have had time to assess the damage and make necessary changes. Now he would be under pressure with a big game in the champions league and a trip to Chelsea coming up next weekend.

Watford were brilliant and hungry, that is the effect Ranieri has on average players. Midfielder Dennis was the most impressive with his runs from midfield and deserves the best player of the match after a goal and an assist. Losing Sarr to injury didn’t affect them at all. Watford had the defensive solidity too, with Nkoulou the best of them for keeping Ronaldo at nay before half time. He would also go off injured. Lastly the new United coach needs to change the player’s attitude not necessarily formations and all that. An example just look at the Dennis goal, Dalot making no effort whatsoever to stay with him. This is a watershed moment for the Red Devils who now lie 12 points adrift of first place Chelsea and should appoint the new guy as soon as yesterday. Interim coaches do not work as they know they have only a limited time and then they are gone so they really have no incentive to produce good results.
