Happy trails, Olly.

It was Ole Gunnar Solskjær at last took off shelterThe burden of caring for Manchester United fans for sick family members during their last days is over. After a valiant battle with the cancerous disease of mismanagement, it was Watford who dealt the decisive blow.

The 4-1 loss to a team fighting to avoid relegation – not two contenders for the Premier League title – was enough to prompt an emergency meeting of the team’s board of directors, which mercifully removed the plug. I dragged my feet on Saturday morning precisely because I thought the loss, marked by Man Yu dropping to 10 men and skipping 20-9, might do so in the end.

This is to avoid trying to find out what is wrong with them. It was Gunnar who was wrong with them, and he was wrong with them despite being one of them. As a Liverpool fan, the opportunity to dance on United’s misfortune is tempting. I’m not particularly excited. Yes, Liverpool are second in the table and in goal difference and beat Arsenal 4-0 on Saturday. And yes, I’ve included those stats to rub it in a bit, but my other team, the one I care about the most and who also plays Saturdays and wears red, is going through a similarly tough time with a team of their own.

Losing is the worst part about any disappointing coach, but the fun part about having a bad coach – making fun of them for confusing substitutions, managing the clock, managing the roster, And other important things – not fun either. Solskjær, like Scott Frost during his playing days, was a pretty ridiculous legendary player, Regardless of How did you feel about the appointment, it’s hard not to be emotional about Recruit yourself.

However, their training days would be thought of so much less fondly that mentioning their names no longer carried reverence for former greats but an abhorrent disgrace. The hope is that the Modernism bias will wear off, and fans will once again remember the highlights of the stadium and not the low lights guarding the sidelines.

My original take for this piece was “Gunnar is no longer trying to win, just seeing what he can get away with.” It would have been a fun, well-meaning polygon. As you know, “Gunnar has already killed the first part of Paul Pogba’s career. The management may have set the criteria for his impeachment for premeditated murder.”

Even by Nebraska standards, which is now underground, Frost is a train wreck, and the idea of ​​”what’s low should sink to shoot” can be applied to Frost as well. I’m not going Go lose by loss to see who has the most embarrassing resume because measuring inefficiency is not what I’m trying to do.

I’m trying to get a nice list for the holidays, but I’m also trying to sympathize with the strange situation. Your opponents are laughing at you, football/soccer, Twitter fooling you, the national pundits fooling you, and the only thing you want – what Man U fans have finally got – is a sweet freedom from that pain.

There may be a number of reasons United took so long to get Gunnar off life support, but the main reason, and the one Nebraska is struggling with at the moment, is that no one in the squad wants to let go of a family member.

As a fan, it’s easy to cut ties with a coach, player or former player-turned-coach because we don’t know these people personally, we don’t know their families, we don’t remember them about their glory days or team reunions. I doubt there was a single person who called Memorial Stadium or the home of Old Trafford who would have wanted this outcome.

When the last heart monitor beep sounds and a beloved family member sounds, some will be relieved, some will be sad, but few will celebrate. We seldom come out the way we want to, and more often than not when death approaches, the end is ugly, difficult, and painful. All these adjectives aptly describe the last days of the coaches whom I praise, but I hope the fans will remember them at their best – on the field, in uniform.

Frost will be back next season, and I’ll be back for my scheduled visits on Saturday, but the United faithful have finally been able to move forward with their fan base. A new manager will be appointed soon and hopefully, Glazer is going to spoil it even worse than they did with Gunnar (it’s okay, I’m pretty sure Santa is a Liverpool fan), but I hope it’s a graveyard we can all walk in when they fail because losing a family member is so much worse than losing just a coach .
