Part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dilemma as Manchester United manager is that every time he wins – and likewise every time he loses – there is an overreaction.
This is due to the club’s magnitude as well as United’s previous history of success. Expectations are so high that there will always be a reaction if they don’t deliver.
For better or worse, the first few weeks of this season have been a wonderful example of it.
When United has won games, some fans have speculated about how they will win the championship. When they lose, though, it is a complete disaster, and Solskjaer is reportedly forced to resign.
In reality, things are not as dramatic in either direction, and if you look at the top of the Premier League table and see how everyone else has dropped points as well, there is no reason to be concerned at Old Trafford.
