Man United fans react on Twitter as Solskjaer bottles yet another semi-final
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now led Man United to four major semifinals and has lost them all.
The Norwegian had stated that United would have no excuses if they failed to make the final of the Carabao Cup. Given our performance on the night, there was plenty to go by.
The Red Devils started off as the better team but City gradually grew into the game. Bruno Fernandes and the usual suspects were missing for United in what can only be described as an abject performance.
Second-half strikes by John Stones and Fernandinho ensured Pep Guardiola’s side made it to a fourth straight League Cup final. They will now face off against a Tottenham Hotspur side led by Solskjaer’s predecessor Jose Mourinho.
While the Norwegian dismissed any psychological issues his side has in scaling the last four stage, the performance on the night was found wanting.
There is still much to play for this season, including what is looking like a genuine Premier League title challenge. Whether Solskjaer can lead us over the finish line and land a trophy this season, remains to be seen.
There are no prizes for coming second, let alone not even get to the final. Despite progress made under Solskjaer, no tangible effect will be had unless he can win trophies.
If last night was anything to go by, both he and his players will need to step up their game. We take a look at how some fans reacted to the loss on Twitter.

Ole and every United player owe the fans an apology for bottling 4 consecutive semi-finals. It’s simply not acceptable for a club like Manchester United.— RiZzy🔴 (@RiZzyUTD) January 6, 2021

Their destiny with Ole at the wheel is to always get knocked out of cup competitions in Semifinals.

So this is the team that is gonna beat Liverpool away and win the league? We need to stop getting so carried away lads, we are embarrassing ourselves with our cockiness. Our defence is sooooo poor and our attack doesn’t do enough when a team sits back. A very worrying game.— Jeffrey (on the run as per) (@jeffrey2648) January 6, 2021
