Michael Knighton has emerged from the dark rooms of the Man United board and has towered back into the stage, joining disgruntled fans to call for the exit of the Glazers.

With a £200m takeover bid rejected in 1989, the renowned English investor and business tycoon is mobilizing funds and personnel to stage another takeover assault with “a hostile bid.”

As Knighton puts it, “the Glazers family are clueless” on how the game works and have contributed to Manchester United’s deepening woes.

With great optimism and hope of replicating Eredivisie’s success with Ajax at the Old Trafford club, Erik Ten Hag was appointed a new manager. He wasted no time getting to the drawing board to diagnose and fix the rot in the team. Three new signings -Tyrrel Malacia, Christian Eriksen, and Lisandro, were acquired.

A brilliant preseason matches opened with a big and morale-boosting win over Liverpool. Can the Red Devils replicate the same feat against the Merseyside club in their third match? No! Everything points to the contrary.

Erik Ten Hag’s two competitive games in charge of Manchester United have shocked the world. The club suffered a shock defeat to Brighton at home. The Red Devils conceded two quick goals in the first half to begin their Premier League campaign on a disappointing note.

Meanwhile, Ten Hag has equally got dumbfounded by the result. He has blamed the players for the defeat and has canceled a planned day off as punishment.

The stats from the match revealed that Brentford’s players ran 8.5km more than Manchester United’s players. This implies that Brentford was more hungry for a win than a disenchanted Man United team. Ten Hag is canceling the day off as punishment as he expects the team to close the 8.5km gap in training instead of going on a day off. A perfect remedy for the team?

Since his arrival as the new Manchester United manager, Ten Hag has left no stone unturned in instilling discipline in the squad. Hardly has this translated into better performance on the pitch. Although it is too early to rate his tactics in the team, it is equally a tough and bitter pill to swallow when your team loses with wide and outrageous margins to minnows.
