United 0-5 Liverpool: Is Ole's cup full after Kops' decimation?

The handwriting was very clear on the wall, the signs were ominous and despite the magic that could be expected from a certain Cristiano Ronaldo, not many expected Manchester United to beat Liverpool on Sunday, but at the famous Theatre of Dreams, you expect a performance of note, we saw the opposite.

There’s so much divide between Manchester United fans over the position of their manager, while most fans believe he’s not the man to lead them into the glorious future they dream, a strong section of fans, led by ex-players and the famous class of 92 won’t give up on their man…

Call it sentiments or what not, it’s a thing and as we have now come to understand it, it’s a major problem with legends like Rio Ferdinand losing his cool when a fan called his ilk out on Twitter shortly after the embarrassment at Old Trafford against Liverpool.

Liverpool destroyed United on Sunday, you must have heard about it as we can tell it’s no longer news in other planets as well, that’s some result that will be displayed on judgment day, it shouldn’t be legal anywhere for strangers to feel at home like that, and from a Red to another Red?

The devil in Manchester was made to beg for forgiveness and it didn’t even take long before we realized how it would end, Mohammed Salah teed up with Naby Keita as early as the opening minutes and David De Gea was already throwing the ball out of his net.

Let’s move past Mohammed Salah’s hatrick and focus on how bad United were on the day, not taking anything away from Liverpool’s brilliance but we can tell you for free, the Kops rendered the devils useless without even hitting second gear, it was that bad.

We’ve seen crazy results this season, Leicester beating United was one of them as the gulf in class between the two wouldn’t be overlooked, City decimated Arsenal but you can make a case for the Gunners with several players out and of course a contentious Granit Xhaka sending off;

Tottenham beating City on the opening day was against the script, but how can you explain a 5-0 annihilation of United by their biggest enemies? Right there on their own sacred home? What could Ole Gunnar Solksjaer have done differently?

Days before the game there were diss tracks in the media from Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba, one would think the Frenchman was benched because of that and when he was sent on at halftime to halt the rot, it didn’t take long for the bad situation to get worse and he even followed up with a mindless sending off, was that deliberate?

The Norwegian has always talked about the support he gets from the fans especially the ones that make it to the ground every match day but four goals down at halftime, the echoes of boos were louder than the thunder that brought down the wall of Jericho.

As at the time of filing this, Solksjaer was still the man at the helm and by the time you’d be reading this he would probably be rounding off the Monday training session, not sure what he would be telling the boys but we don’t even care.

How does Gary Neville feel right now? We can tell for Rio and Paul Scholes as we heard from them right after the game, do they still stand with their man?

Where does the broken heart go from here? For those that tipped United to win the league after the arrivals of Ronaldo and Raphael Varane including yours truly, do you still feel the same way? And with Tottenham up next for United, what do we expect?

Salah has broken Didier Drogba’s record as the highest scoring African in the premier league and he became the first ever opposition player to score three times at Old Trafford, the records keep coming in and we don’t think it will stop soon.

At this rate, with things going south for United and rivals picking points, the title is sailing away and they will now struggle to fight for top four, and if this counts for something, title chasing United are now level on points with relegation threatened Arsenal… This is football!
