BREAKING NEWS: Bournemouth beats Manchester United for the first time at old Trafford. You’re getting sacked in the morning” chants once again echoed around an otherwise silent Old Trafford as Bournemouth put Man Utd to the sword. After the defeat at Bournemouth, Man Utd board reevaluate Ten Hag’s position.

The management of Manchester United should carefully reevaluate their position regarding Erik ten Hag's future.


Once again, as Bournemouth put Man Utd to the sword, chants of “You’re getting sacked in the morning” reverberated throughout an otherwise quiet Old Trafford. The Cherries easily defeated the Red Devils on home ground, just as Newcastle had done when the same chants were heard earlier in the campaign.

Goals from Dominic Solanke, who used to play for Chelsea and Liverpool, Philip Billing, and Marcos Senesi helped Andoni Iraola’s team win 3-0. This confirmed what many had suspected—that Chelsea’s performance against Man Utd was more due to their extreme poor play than to Man Utd’s turnaround.

The performance served as a metaphor for the Red Devils’ campaign. Ten Hag was keen to sign Sofyan Amrabat in the summer, but he lost the man he was supposed to mark on the third goal, underscoring his lacklustre campaign and casting further doubt on Ten Hag’s transfer choices.

Ten Hag ought to be fired.
Bruno Fernandes was the player who stole the show, more so than Amrabat, as he received multiple bookings and missed the vital derby against Liverpool as a result of accruing yellow cards. Harry Maguire lost the Man Utd captaincy to Fernandes after Ten Hag relieved him of it, and now a player who is expected to set an example will miss a crucial match due to a foolish booking.

Ten Hag will undoubtedly face increased pressure as a result of the outcome. The Man Utd team executives need to reevaluate their position that the Dutchman is safe in his position and won’t be fired. This season, Man United has put on far too many terrible shows. What’s even more concerning is that, even in the rare occasions when they have succeeded in winning, they have rarely demonstrated compelling football.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the new investor, will undoubtedly fire Ten Hag if the current club hierarchy refuses to, but by then, the damage will already be done. United is facing elimination from the Champions League group stage and has already lost the Carabao Cup.

Despite sitting in a respectable sixth place in the Premier League, the Red Devils have lost 11 of their 23 games and are performing more like a mid-table team, if not worse. It’s hard not to agree with the many fans who referred to the Bournemouth outcome as a “sackable offence” on social media.
