The fact that both Manchester clubs are out of the Champions League and gone after the quarter finals is a fact. But while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs a full rebuild, no one asks that of Pep Guardiola.

The fact that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last night played a game a day before their opponent Barca and Man City also had a day less than Tottenham to prepare, shows that lack of rest could be a key to the results.

While Pep is out, really pushing for a win, and against Tottenham, not really seen as a club fighting for the Champions League trophy, with a difficult task even to get out of the group stages, you don’t say he is the wrong man for the job or that he must rebuild his team.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a loss against the favorites to win the Champions League is given a go by most pundits and his team is hammered in media, stamped, not good enough. At home they put pressure on Barca, and to beat them over two games, not realy anyone is capable of that.

Liverpool is up next against Barca, and Jurgen Klopp might also have a problem, with the style he plays. His team is pushing forward and always trying to attack, against Barca that could be a problem.

To watch and listen to pundits is no fun, they are so into the last minute, so little talk about the total picture and just throwing words in as garbage gets to the bin. Barca is not the easiest opponent, and we just have to wait and see how Liverpool and Klopp will cope with that challenge.

Manchester United under Jose Mourinho or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is almost the same team, the fixtures that OSG got in the start would also have been won by Mourinho, and the fact that the Portuguese won away to Juventus is not counting, bollocks, bollocks, bollocks.

if a big club like Manchester United should be affected by a managers temper or how he acts, then they are so little that you can’t really imagine them as winners of any type of medals.

People are looking for scapegoats and one to blame when everything isn’t perfect, and they point their fingers at someone to try to solve a problem, instead of making justice and get the wrongs corrected.

Manchester United as a club needs a good coach, Jose Mourinho was one, if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is that man, who knows. The fact that you are not at the stage Barca is, doesn’t really come down to Solskjaer, this or the next season, but silently trying to fill a gap between the two massive clubs that at the moment is based on one single point, that Lionel Messi is not for sale and that Sir Alex once sold a player named Pique.

Things can happen in the future for both Man Utd and Man City, the clear fact at the moment is that both clubs ended their Champions League in the quarters, with Man Utd losing to a stronger opposition than Man City.

Why should Pep go free and not be blamed, while Solskjaer has a massive job to do, because he is not winning any trophies this season and Pep still has a chance to add the FA Cup and the Premier League to his list of trophies.
