Manchester United fans have been chanting these words quite triumphantly home and away, and the Red Devils have certainly been rejoicing at the resurgence of attacking football that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has swiftly engineered at the club.

The Norwegian gaffer, whose appointment was initially met with some doubt, has shushed all of his critics, with the Tottenham win his sixth consecutive one – the best start to life that any Manchester United gaffer has ever made.

It is obvious that he is trying to ape the brilliance of Sir Alex Ferguson, under whom he functioned as a fearful striker. Solskjaer had admitted that he took notes from Ferguson’s coaching style when he began to realize that he himself may have managerial ambitions someday.

However, it turns out that playing style isn’t the only thing that Solskjaer has borrowed from his former boss.

According to MEN, Solskjaer has brought back a Ferguson-era rule that has made it mandatory for the players and staff of the club to wear suits even for away games.

This change was in effect during the Wembley outing on Sunday, when the Red Devils held a charming and classy demeanor.

Appearance is something that Ferguson always placed heavy emphasis on, a part of his brand-building exercises that always inculcated into the players the belief that they represented the badge everywhere they went.

In contrast, Jose Mourinho’s team was often seen in tracksuits, a starkly different sight from the blazer-donned Red Devils that walked into Wembley – victory set in their heart from the get-go.

It is clear that this young gaffer imbibes all of the necessary traits that the club has been badly lacking. Irrespective of how things turn out at the end of the season, if Solskjaer departs the club a second time, more than one teary eye shall populate Stretford End.
