So it’s official.
Manchester United have a new permanent manager in the form of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. And the players have an ideal opportunity to prove what that appointment means.
After all, United have lost some of the swagger they showed in early matches under the Norwegian.
With Watford coming to Old Trafford, Saturday is the perfect chance to rediscover that verve.
United found the net a remarkable 12 times in Solskjaer’s first three league games in charge. They played with energy, confidence and, at times, a little arrogance.
In short, it was the United way. But more recently they have gone, if not flat, then somewhat subdued.
A home game is the ideal way for United’s stars to show what this appointment means.
Their boss has invigorated them and they need to come out of the traps early against the Hornets.
It will not be easy but, after the disappointment of back-to-back defeats, we need to see the United of old.
Supporters have seen a lot more of them in recent weeks, so let it rain goals and smiles once again this weekend.
There would be no better way to crown Solskjaer’s coronation.
