December was a make or break month for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United and as we approached January, we finally got a taste of what the Norwegian can bring to the club.
In December, Solskjaer perfected the United-esque counter-attack against Manchester City and executed a well-drilled performance against Tottenham Hotspur. This came at a time where the United boss was well and truly being questioned by the fans, and Solskjaer replied by outwitting Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola in the same week.
These performances showed what the hero of ‘99 could bring to the helm. Speed, tenacity, more speed, counter-attacking brilliance and even more speed in the attack; these performances were as great as a United fan could have hoped for.
