While a majority of the Premier League followers were focused on the exciting title race between Manchester City and Liverpool on the final day of the season, supporters of Manchester United were busy enduring yet another disaster.
The Red Devils suffered a humiliating defeat against 18th-placed Cardiff City, who picked up three meaningless points at Old Trafford by beating the home team 2-0.
Young academy graduate Mason Greenwood was the sole respite in a Mancunian side that displayed an utterly shambolic performance on their own turf.
While a majority of the club’s supporters were well and truly glad to have seen the 2018-19 season coming to a close, some offered interesting feedback regarding their final-day result.
Opinions were especially divided regarding Manchester United‘s permanent gaffer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Some fans backed the Norwegian, urging everyone to remain patient and let him build his own squad, while others began calling for his sacking already, deeming his team’s dismal performance against an already relegated club as simply unacceptable.
Here are some of the best reactions to the result from social networking website, Twitter:
People saying Ole deserves time, I understand that. But he doesn’t help himself by continuously making poor starting line-ups, poor in game management and having his favourites who are undeserving of playing. Let’s be fair with our assessments please.

In time, making Manchester United supporters fall out of love with Solskjaer could be Woodward's ultimate low. That, however, will take an awful lot more and the heat will first turn on this abject group of players and a hierarchy entirely out of their depth.

Man United's defeat to relegated Cardiff means they finished with 66 points – 32 behind champions Man City.
That's the furthest they've finished off the top since they were promoted in 1975!

"You're just a s*** Neil Warnock" is the chant from Cardiff fans at their former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Honestly, I don’t think Ole is the right man for the job but turning on him and forcing him to be sacked (e.g. through a plane banner or protests) wouldn’t change anything. The owners need to be targeted. Not him. No manager comes into this club & turns it around.
