Solskjaer’s Salvage Mission

The fairytale start that Solskjaer has made as Man Utd manager has finally put the club back on track to reaching their glory identity.

United is a big team but even they need a few years to adjust, reset and get back to being the best again. The timing is good and Solskjaer looks like the right guy to bring the happiness back to the United fans. He is bringing in the result the club wants, so it would be crazy for the board to bring in a new permanent manager and give him all the financial backing.

They had a lot of options after Mourinho’s departure but they needed one of their own. One that understands the culture and one that would get instant respect from the big guns like Pogba. He brought the belief and when players are young and a little lost in why things don’t go well, you need to instill that belief again. That is exactly what he has done and you can see Rashford is back to the level he was when he first came on the scene, fearless and with a mind that doesn’t overthink things too much.

At the back they are all fighting to be the first pick in the team as there is healthy competition. When a team is winning everyone want to play and make sure they make their contribution. That is why you see every player busting his balls to make sure they are part of the starting eleven.

I really enjoy watching Man Utd and it’s hard for teams to go there again and think they will get a result out of the game. They were eight points behind Arsenal when Jose got fired and now, partly thanks to a bad run by the Gunners, as well as the great influence of Solskjaer, they are now level on points. They are the in-form team and are just 6 points behind Chelsea, who they will now be trying to catch.

A top-four finish is what United need to make sure next season they are doing what a team of their stature should –  competing for the domestic league and Champions League. Other than the FA Cup game vs Arsenal which will be tough, they should be beating every team until the big one in the Champions league against PSG in February, when they also face Liverpool.

It’s an Important month for Solskjaer so the best thing for him is to keep the momentum and belief going so they go into their big games with the feeling that they can win every game. #mmlove
