‘Fans have to be patient’ – Andy Mitten reflects on the mood at Manchester United amid Ten Hag uncertainty


Editor of United We Stand Andy Mitten is usually the voice of reason when it comes to Manchester United. The respected journalist says Erik ten Hag “has had to put up with a lot” since joining the club and should be given six months under the new ownership to try and steer the team in the right direction.

People are quick to forget that Ten Hag’s team overachieved last season. Following Monday night’s 4-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, we have seen people call for the manager’s head across social media. The away end at Selhurst Park during the week stayed behind to rally behind a team that had failed to pick up three points on the road yet again.

Since then there have been serious doubts over the Dutchman’s position at Old Trafford and whether Sir Jim Ratcliffe will replace him at the end of the season.

Fans were happy to see that Sky Sports had asked Mitten on to reflect on the mood around United. He says it how it is without the crap attached – see Rants, Flex and Goldbridge for more (well, don’t actually) – and manages to give a fair reflection of bleak times.
