Reflections on Solskjaer's first year
It feels like a long time since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed permanent first-team manager of Manchester United, on 28 March 2019.
“Which players has he improved?”
It's been far from perfect, yes, and Solskjaer, Mike Phelan and co will readily admit that.
But, as a fan, it's difficult to argue against the idea that progress has been made, especially if you factor in the difficult decisions that have been made to let certain players go, and the clear attempt to change the culture of the club in what is a very short space of time.
Manchester United are steadily improving, and doing it in a way that is consistent with the ideas and beliefs that has made the club successful in the past.
Old Trafford knows this and has been unwavering in its support of the manager. Time, patience and some luck are still required, but Solskjaer is on track.
