Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Blames The Colour Red For Man Utd’s Poor Home Form

Published

on

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United manager has clearly been studying at Jurgen Klopp’s school of ludicrous excuses as he claimed the team’s poor home form was due to all the red banners in the stands.

United have won just eight of their 15 Premier League home matches this season, while Real Sociedad and AC Milan both left Old Trafford withdraws in the Europa League, but United’s impressive away record has helped carry them through.

Figuring out why Old Trafford has lost its sense of fear has been high on Solskjaer’s agenda, and it seems as though he has settled on blaming a colour. As you do.

“If you look at all the banners around the edge they are not red anymore,” Solskjaer said (via Sky Sports News).

“We have looked into this, and there shouldn’t be any reason [why home form is worse] but some of the players have mentioned that, when making that split-second decision, to look to see if your teammate is there or not, and the red shirt, on a red background, with red seats – we have of course tried to change that, along with the anti-racism campaign, that was important that wasn’t red too.

“When you have a 4-0 win away against Sociedad you don’t have to win at home, and the first game against Milan, we conceded in the last minute. I still think we have played some good football at home.

“We started off badly with three defeats, Palace, Tottenham and Arsenal early on, but we have improved.”

In Solskjaer’s defence, it is hard to distinguish a person from a piece of cloth. Skin, hair, shorts and socks do all go invisible from time to time. We’ve all been there…totally.

Fortunately for United, they’ve got rid of the banners now, and these replacements will soon be removed to welcome fans back. Those supporters will flock to Old Trafford in their favourite United shirts, making the stands look like a wall of…red.

Solskjaer’s comments brought a laugh out of Gary Neville, who joked on Twitter that the situation reminded him of Sir Alex Ferguson forcing his team to change out of their grey kit in an away trip to Southampton in 1996 because of a so-called colour clash.

It’s not quite as bad as that, but be honest, it’s not far off.

A 23-year-old woman by name, Priscilla Tsegah, was stabbed to death by her female friend in a hotel where they lodged for two days.

Her body was found in the hotel room after she had been declared missing by her family with her friends running a social media campaign using her pictures and appealing to the public help find her.

She is said to have been stabbed in her lower abdomen by another lady identified only as Natashia, suspected to be the “lesbian partner’ of the deceased. Natashia took to her heels after the incident and no eye balls have been set on her since.

Natashia is alleged to have murdered her lover after the boyfriend of Priscilla, yet to be identified, went to the Justa Hotel, at New Legon, where the two women were lodging.

According to workers of the hotel, Natashia booked a room in their facility on May 20, 2021 at about 6:43pm and after one hour and 17 minutes, she left and returned with Priscilla, whose identity was not known by the hotel until after her death.

Joel Glazer Opens Up On Man Utd’s Transfer Plans This Summer

Published

on

Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer has insisted that the club will invest ‘meaningfully’ in the summer transfer window, and is confident about what the future holds for the Red Devils.

Man Utd are close to agreeing a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, while they have also been linked with moves for Spurs’ Harry Kane and West Ham’s Declan Rice.

Glazer, who United fans seldom hear directly from, confirmed at a recent fans’ forum that the club will invest in the playing squad this summer.

“We’re going to keep investing on the pitch, which we did last year, and we plan on doing it meaningfully this year. So, we feel that we’re in a good spot,” he said, via Man Utd’s website.

Glazer also spoke about the restructuring behind the scenes at the club, which involved John Murtough becoming the director of football with Darren Fletcher appointed as technical director, and how he is confident that the club will end their trophy drought.

“There’s been a tremendous amount of work done behind the scenes and we feel like we’re absolutely on the right track,” Glazer said. “As you all know, we’ve put John Murtough as our first football director, along with Darren Fletcher in there as well. And we feel with them together leading the way, and the work done behind the scenes, that we’re absolutely on the right track.

“Our recruitment process policies, the way we go about it has changed in the last few years, I think we’ve all seen how that has changed. We think we’re absolutely in a position for a lot of success for the future.

“Any other club that has won titles recently had years where they didn’t win the league, then they moved up, they were successful and then everybody appreciates the way their structure is set up. We think we’re on that path. We feel very good about where we are.

“But at the end of the day, we all share the same goal – to win trophies. And we will make sure that everything is being done to put us in the best position to win trophies, we’ll continue to do that. And we think we’ve set up a structure behind the scenes to deliver success.”
