The other day Andrew Cole commented, now Lee Sharpe

"I have to say I've never really thought Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the right man for the Manchester United job, Yes, he's done a good job, but I think he's done as well as he can do, to be honest. The board have backed him, they've given him money to spend, but he'd never have been my first choice, purely because of that lack of experience. If you're one of the biggest companies in the world outside of football, you're not going to employ someone for such a big role the way United have done with Ole. I think he's a little bit out of his depth: You can see that in certain games; I don't think he gets the players up for it. ".

I think the realisation is setting in now. Going top was probably the worst thing to happen to Ole. The subsequent form and his attitude has shown he is not cut out for this job.

To conceding we weren't in the title race when we trailed by 6 points. To the accepting of draws and lacklustre football on display. He's not the man for us.

I think Ole made a massive mistake with his ill conceived comments when we sat top of the league. To pour cold water on a title challenge when we sat top of the pile for the first time in almost a decade demonstrated a lack of experience and it’s wasn’t what the fans or even the players needed to hear.

I think Ole has fallen into the trap of mirroring the Clubs ambitions of a top 4 finish and dampening expectations. If we don’t strive for the top we’ll never get there and the quality of football and champions league capitulation did not represent progress.

Ole must understand that whilst the board may tolerate mediocrity and accept top 4 finishes the fans will not tolerate a Club seemingly content to just make up the numbers and finishing in the top 4 will never be regarded as a success at this Club.

Ole must mirror the expectations of the fans not the board and drive the standards of the Club. It’s acceptable to fall short but sacrilege to not even try.

Fans aren’t stupid, we have eyes, we may not possess a UEFA Pro licence but most of us have been watching football all our lives and we understand and appreciate what good football looks like.

Ole’s done a decent job but if he thinks second place is good enough for our Club whilst playing percentage football then he’s sorely mistaken!

If you look at Ole as a transitional manager then I think he has put us in a better place then when he took over, and done a pretty good job considering his abilities.
Hopefully the board have always understood this and have planned for life after Ole (we can but hope) . For me it will either be Allegri or Deschamps.

Some of the rubbish people write on here is crazy. Of course Ole doesn't think second is good enough. This city team is on a run of winning games that is close to breaking records across the history of any of the five top leagues.

Just let that sink in.

Yes utd are in a bad run of form. They have been consistently inconsistent. But to suggest that this team is not going places is very strange to me.

We have very good spells in games, then we look timid and frightened in other spells.

I think a couple of added pieces and we'll be close to the top. I know some think we are closer to total collapse than success, but I don't think so at all.

Chelsea away, 0-0 looks better result now. Ole was criticized for being too attacking and naive at Cardiff. Maybe he's learning that it is a season long war, not a battle. Something that Fergy did well, even though the history re-writters would have you believe it was scintillating stuff every single week.
