Manchester United supporters again voiced their frustration with the club’s owner and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward in the FA Cup fourth-round thrashing of Tranmere Rovers.

United kept a good match in the first half at Prenton Park despite the frustrating pitch. The Red Devils scored five times with captain Harry Maguire and Diogo Dalot claiming their first goals for the club. Similarly, Phil Jones secured his first since March 2014 under David Moyes.

Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial were also on target in the first period. They brought an end to any thoughts of FA Cup defeat that would further pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer did not need additional assistance all through the match. Mason Greenwood added a second-half penalty. United happily took home six goals for the first time since 2011 under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Despite the victory, supporters spent five minutes chanting against the Glazer family and Woodward who was not at the game. The chants appeared to be sung by the vast majority of United supporters and ended with “We are Man United; we will sing what we want.”

United fans are annoyed at what they view as a lack of investment in the team. This has turned to a long-held belief that has grown during the current transfer window with the team fifth in the Premier League.

When asked about the chants after the game, Solskjaer replied, “We are just going to keep on working and trying to get the results right and move the club forward.”

“Supporters are always happier when you win games and are successful. We will just keep working to get this right.”

Internal dissent at Theatre of Dreams

Plenty of debates have arisen concerning the songs heard during Wednesday’s Premier League home defeat by Burnley. The supporters who made the short journey to Merseyside took half an hour to identify their target again at Prenton Park.

Prior to that, they repeatedly sang in honor of Solskjaer who it is clear he will remain a hero to the fans no matter how his managerial stint works out.

Thereafter, they sang the chant about Woodward that caused most of Wednesday’s controversy before turning on the Glazers with a succession of songs including “We want the Glazers out.”

The final and the longest chant involved most of United fans. It was followed by another round of songs backing the club and vowing to continue supporting it.

No repeat was heard again until the final five minutes when the Woodward chant was voiced again and soon disappeared.

Up Next

United will travel to Manchester City for the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday.
