“Take accountability” – Several fans livid as goal-shy Man United draw a blank yet again

Manchester United fans react as the club once again draws a blank against the big six

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cut a frustrated figure following the goalless stalemate against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The result saw Manchester City pull away further in what is increasingly becoming a one-horse race for the title. However, unless the Red Devils start beating the teams around them, there will always be a gap needing to be bridged.

United have played the big-six 7 times this season. We have scored just one goal in over 630 minutes of football against these teams. The lone strike too was a penalty by Bruno Fernandes against Tottenham at Old Trafford. A game we wound up losing 6-1.

The fact that we have been unable to break these teams from open play, despite many of them enjoying poor seasons, is troubling.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came out punching in the post-match presser yesterday. While one could argue that we should have had a penalty, it seems pretty ridiculous to blame a poor decision for our profligacy.

After all, we hardly looked like a team that was chasing the three points. Rather than a one off, it has become a trend when facing the top teams.

The fact that we are second is also down to the teams around us underperforming than us being the second-best team in the land. As long as our focus is to avoid defeat rather than to grab a win, we will constantly keep falling short of expectations.

The stat was not lost on United fans, who were livid at Solskjaer’s safety-first approach. We take a look at how some of them reacted below.
