“Glory days are Old, best players are Old , the coach is Old, the trophy is Old. Ladies and gentlemen welcome to Old Trafford.” Those were Peter Drury’s opening commentary statement against Manchester United after the previous two consecutive unconvincing results under the new manager Ragnick.
The team once cherished as National pride for England has now turned into a group of “deperate foxes” with nowhere to hide it’s constant sham results. After sacking one of it’s former star Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the team manager following an embarrassing 4-1 defeat at Watford. Manchester United managerial problem seems not to end despite appointing one of German’s finest coaches “the father of coaches” Ralf Rangnick as an interim manager.
With high expectation on his arrival with all his pressing soccer theory commonly known as the geng geng pressing, however all seems to be falling apart given the last games he has been in charge of the Red Devils.
“The father of German coaches struggled to win bottom of the table Norwitch, struggled to draw with 2nd from bottom Burnley without a clean sheet” The unapologetic senior football commentator continued.
It should be historically noted that ever since Sir Alex Ferguson retired from this prestigious role, so far Seven professional coaches have tried but terribly failed including David Moyes, Ryan Giggs, Louis Van Gaal, Jose Mauhrino, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Michael Carrick & current interim manager Ralf Rangnick awaiting final manager to be appointed by end of the season.
“It’s over 10 years now since he won a trophy. I still don’t believe that he’ll make any difference at United. Unless he proves me wrong later”. Stated the Peter Drury.
The team now sits 7th on the table having played 20 matches with two matches at hand. It is if next to impossible to have hope for it to bounce back to the table top. Asked about their current position, the world’s number one as argued by many was not any difficult to reply, “ I agree we are not united, we need to come together and bounce back & fight for number one or two” says the 23M euro Christiano Ronaldo. Many players are now linked to possible exit from the club including Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard among others.
Indeed the Glory days seems to have faded away so fast before the name could have.
