I suggest you take a little look at this.

Know the history pol. Just don't think he'd have had us enter this season so threadbare. Bloody loved a striker too did Frogson

Yep, we had some *astonishingly* crap results in that period. At the end of 1989 most fans wanted him sacked, nqat.

A 46 year old fergie taking over 10 months ago probably would tbh. He hardly set the world alight when he took over united. The only way a manager overcomes a bad dressing room is to change the players before they change him. There’s no short term fix, unless you’re a state backed oil rich club who can quickly turn over 20 players.

It’s actually harder to do now, given the transfer windows. We’d probably not have won the title in 93 if the transfer window was in place then, and who knows how that would have affected things. Without the transfer window we’d likely have bought and sold a few more players over the past month or so and we wouldn’t have a terrible midfield and be in this mess. We’d also be able to react to Martial’s injury and rashford’s poor form and buy a striker to cover.

Then he’d be stuck between a rock and a hard place. Because he wouldn’t get any more players than we got, and he’d then have had the choice of keeping toxic players who will offer no help and probably cause more harm with their influence in the dressing room, or getting rid of that problem and being short. The difficulty in selling players is also a bottleneck on buying players, so that would be another argument for getting rid now and being short, so signings could be quicker in the next window. Ole chose the option to get rid, and for all we know, maybe that was the least worst option from a shit sandwich and thus the best decision.

I remember actually being gutted we came from 3-1 down against city with 10 mins left to draw 3-3, as I was convinced it saved his job. Think we did similar the week before or the week after too.

I gave up wanting him sacked in October or November 1990 when united qualified for the quarter final of the cup winner’s cup. Purely because I thought the club wouldn’t sack him before that game in March so it was pointless to keep wanting him out in the meantime. Then we got good. Lesson learned.
