It's time for Ed Woodward to resign from Manchester United
Enough is enough.
Sunday’s defeat against Everton was one of the worst Manchester United performances of the last 30 years.
The 4-0 defeat blew up the cracks in the United team; a side lacking quality and players who care.
Yes, there can be questions over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tactics, but it really isn’t fair to point too much blame at the Norwegian.
You can chop and change the manager 100 times if the players remain the same, the results ultimately will stagnate and continue to be sub-standard.
It’s time for chief executive Ed Woodward to do the decent and honourable thing and resign now.
Time to go Ed
Woodward was always an ill fit for chief executive, with no experience handling a day to day running of any football club, let alone Manchester United.
His first summer in charge in 2013 was disastrous, signing only Marouane Fellaini.
David Moyes was the wrong man for the job, but he didn’t stand a chance.
Since then money has been blown on players, with no strategy behind it. The youth team is suffering from under-investment, and United have fallen behind rivals.
Most shocking of all is that players who were sub-standard in 2013, are still starting for Manchester United in 2019.
Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, and Ashley Young are not good enough and should have been replaced a long time ago.
Players like Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo should have been moved on, but their high contracts make them hard to shift.
Solskjaer will get money to spend this summer, and still the club wait to appoint a technical director. Time is running out.
The best thing which could happen to United right now is for Woodward to quit, and let a new man with fresh vision, experience, and passion take over.
If Woodward truly cared about United, he would step aside.
