    Ok, so this is not a thread about whether or not he should be sacked. Nor is it a thread about our style of play, lack of direction, or all the other reasons people feel he may be underachieving or not.
    This is purely to speculate when he may get the boot. Because, let’s face it, he is on dodgy ground.

    Lose or fail to score tomorrow then I think he is on his last chance. Could even get the boot early next week.

    Lose the next two and he’s definitely gone. I think we’ll beat Norwich though.

    He will be here for the next 20 yrs:

    ✓ He doesn't ask players

    ✓ Happy to play with youngsters

    ✓ He is convenient for the club: loved by the fans, doesn't ask nothing= more money for them= happy glazer

    He will not stay if the team's not progressing from where it is. Simple as that.

    I fear for you, soapy the cat. Hope you have a helmet on.

    As for Ole, he should have gone after Newcastle, so feck only knows.

    Won't make it past Christmas. Thought it long before the season even kicked off, and the football we've seen has only reinforced my feeling.

    So they don't care if we go down? I really think some have a very simplistic view and it's easy to say the club doesn't care.

    Don't worry, not for long. Doubt we will see threads in hindsight like "if Ole's ideology had been followed completely how low would we have gone"

    I think it's only fair that Woodward has the same threads Ole does now.

    They are equally incapable of doing their jobs properly, Woodward has just done it for longer.

    A loss tomorrow would put him under some serious pressure.. also a win would give him few more matches.. so pretty much tomorrow’s match is huge for him in my opinion.

    I hope he gets the sack as soon as possible though, I still haven’t gave up on the season, if he goes, and we get a decent manager, we would be in the top 6.

    The worst thing that can happen is that we scrape out a result as we did against Liverpool. It just delays the inevitable and makes the pain continue.

    I don't think he will be sacked even with a loss against Norwich. I think it will also take a loss against Chelsea and potentially Brighton.

    If we lose tomorrow he will be fired. He deserves to go, the defeats I can take but the style of play is absolutely clueless.

    The main thing keeping him in the job is a lack of candidates to take over. If there was a top class alternative available I feel he would have been gone already.

    You do realize that it's not beyond the realm of possibility that Solskjær will stay, even if we don't make top 6?

    With the current poor form, and temporary improvements of previous management changes, there can't be confidence that making further changes will yield results. What's interesting is that we are in uncharted territory, well territory a significant section of our fan base have not experience with, therefore it's possible the amount of leeway extends beyond the Christmas period whatever our results turn out to be. That's my thinking on what's going on inside the club.

    Personally, I feel uncomfortable with the situation like a lot of fans. However, the world hasn't ended and I want to see a successful long-term challenge. It's not going to bother me if we are outside the top 6 with Ole after Christmas, if I see and hear the right things from the club. I don't expect an immediate turnaround - seeing that under a new manager would signify more of the same from this crowd of players.

    They usually act only if they are forced to do it

    They lost any interest in the club (a good news, on long terms, they could sell), bad on short terms, no investment with a fake interest in developing young players

    Lukaku not replaced, Sanchez not replaced, Herrera not replaced, Fellaini not replaced. A squad with 7 centre backs, never seen something like that in modern football, a total confusion

    They are willing to make some movement only if forced hardly to do it, I think Ole is safe if he doesn't bring the squad below the 15th place

    I think he will get to February unless we are really struggling in the relegation zone unfortunately. No way Woodward sacks his yes man unless he has to.

    Since we must have the easiest run of games of all the teams in the PL coming up (on paper), besides Chelsea in the LC, I think not before Tottenham on the 4th of December. Best case, he turns it around, worst case we stumble into a few W’s and some draws, maybe a loss, and get spanked by limping Spurs.

    This thread will rapidly descend into an Ole bashing, despite the OP claiming otherwise.

    Have fun people.

    They need to stick to a long-term strategy. Keeping Ole is better than short-term strategies which rejuvenate the team for a short period while protecting players who should not be above scrutiny.

    Movement would be great, if it brought in a fantastic new manager and appropriate changes to the playing staff. This has not happened since Fergie left despite turnovers and thousands of comments here and elsewhere claiming that each revolution will bring change. Forced changes don't really help us moving forward. We need more courage to stand behind people and enable them to force a change in the club.

    First week in November, after getting spanked by Bournemouth in the last of a long line of limp displays, leaving us in the relegation places.

    (Just to put it out there, I think he deserves to go regardless now, but I'm wondering what it would actually take for him to go.)

    We've got a favourable run of fixtures after Bournemouth, so it's perfect timing.

    Bang on.

    Solskjaer is a dream ticket for Woodward / Glazers - they'll do literally everything they can to keep him in place as they continue to milk and drain Man Utd.

    Hence him still being employed now!

    I hope he continues to turn it around, but at any other competitive club he'd be long gone by now - rightfully.

    No way he gets sacked unless we are seriously in danger of being relegated.

    What's the plan for success though? You fire the manager to punish him for bad results and open a spot for a new manager. You now feel good because your wish came true and are ready to put the positive vibes you have to use. Who replaces him and how does it play out from there that's going to result in sustained success?
