Following Man United’s 4-0 humiliation at Brentford on Saturday evening, Paddy’s decided enough is enough and paid out on Erik ten Hag to be the first Premier League manager to get the boot after just TWO GAMES in charge of the beleaguered club.

A flurry of subs at half-time did little to put a trace of respectability on a result that makes this the worst start for a Man United manager in over a century.

We’re not sure Sir Alex will get the chance to share many post-match riojas with the latest Man United gaffer, though we hope he has a spare crate or two if results continue like this.

And with long-time target Mauricio Pochettino single and ready to mingle having parted ways with his Parisian fling this summer, United could belatedly swipe left on Ten Hag and hook up with the ex-Spurs gaffer.

Mauricio Pochettino Next Permanent Man Utd Manager

The good news for the current manager is he has over a week to teach his goalkeeper how to pass ahead of the visit of Liverpool to Old Trafford next Monday night.

Assuming he’s not sacked before then…
