Manchester United fans think Phil Jones said 'sacked in the morning' to Ed Woodward


Manchester United have produced countless bad performances in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era - and their latest display, away at West Ham, is right up there with the worst of them.

The Red Devils were poor from start to finish and deservedly lost the match 2-0.

Goals either side of half-time from Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell sealed all three points for the Hammers, who now sit fourth in the Premier League table, three points clear of seventh-placed United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have only won two of their opening six league fixtures.

They were unable to build on back-to-back victories over Leicester City and Astana and the pressure will now be on them to beat Arsenal on September 30.

Lose that and the knives will be out for those in power at Old Trafford: the Glazer family, Ed Woodward and probably Solskjaer, too.

The vast majority of United fans, it seems, are desperate to see the back of the Glazer family and Woodward following several seasons of underachievement.

They have more sympathy for club legend Solskjaer, but even that’s beginning to wane. #OleOut was trending on Twitter following Sunday’s disastrous display at the London Stadium.

A video is currently doing the rounds on social media which shows Phil Jones, who was sat in the stands but wasn’t in the match-day squad, having a quick chat with Woodward.

And United fans think they know what was said by both men.


Some supporters, as per one tweet from @UnitedStandMUFC, claims Jones says ‘Sacked in the morning’.

Whether that was about Woodward, Solskjaer or somebody else is unclear. One explanation is that he was telling Woodward what the West Ham fans were chanting.

Woodward, the fans claim, then says ‘Will you ever stop?’

Others think United’s executive vice-chairman said ‘Will you shut up?’ to Jones.

Make your own minds up by watching the footage…


Before the Arsenal game a week on Monday, United go head-to-head against League One side Rochdale in the League Cup at Old Trafford.

Nothing less than a convincing win will do for Solskjaer and his players.
