Manchester United fans were rightfully furious with their players following the heavy loss to Everton on Sunday afternoon.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer watched on helplessly as his side were thoroughly beaten by the home team.
With Tottenham losing to Manchester City, it was extremely important for United’s top four ambitions to grab a win.
It was always going to be a tricky fixture for United but no one predicted just how poorly they would play.
It was Solskjaer’s heaviest loss but supporters did not blame him at all for how things panned out.
Honestly .. at what stage do you start blaming the players for lacking the will and the determination to go out on the pitch and deliver?

So reds… what is the problem? First it was Moyes, then van Gaal and lastly Mourinho [fans made him number 1 enemy]. Mou is then sacked too and along came Ole; we go on to win many games in a row then boom… back to losing game after game. So what seems to be the real problem?

Man UTD players:
– It’s Mourinho’s fault
– It’s Solkjærs’s fault.
No! It’s your fault!!!
You are playing for one of the best clubs in the world.
I have played against some the best Man UTD- players EVER.
You are not worthy even to polish their shoes.

Yes, this is most definitely the worst half of football that I have ever seen from Man Utd, these players don't deserve Champions League football whatsoever.

The worst 45 minutes of football I’ve seen from Manchester United in my life.

Though fans were obviously furious, they were arguably more baffled by what they had just witnessed.
The errors in the first half were somewhat understandable but to come out in the second half with no desire to turn things around was unforgivable.
Ole has spoken about the need to gradually bring his squad up to standards but if it were up to the fans they would probably sell at least six or seven players this summer.
It will be a surprise if Manchester United still manage to secure a top four spot as they haven’t proven themselves to be worthy of late.
