Manchester United drew 1-1 with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening after Jamie Vardy broke the record held by Ruud van Nistelrooy by scoring in his eleventh consecutive match, putting his side in the lead inside the first 25 minutes. United drew level in stoppage time at the end of the first half with Bastian Schweinsteiger scoring his first goal for the club, with a header from a Daley Blind cross. The second half was spent with United having more than the lions share of the ball, but seldom doing anything with any of the chances being created. Frustration seems to be the new thing that haunts United supporters, with many still calling for Louis van Gaal to be sacked, despite the fact he has made ground with the club, stabilising them, making changes by getting rid of the dead wood and getting the side ready for the next manager, currently tipped to be Ryan Giggs.
The football is not beautiful, but this is not the end product. United are still in transition and nothing is pretty in transition. The United way of football is temporarily out of service, but supporters need to get behind the team and the manager. Sacking another manager in just over two years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired will not be good for the club, and the hard work undertaken by Van Gaal and his assistants will be undone by an incoming manager, and the club will be back to square one. Not a good thing to call for, but fickle is as fickle does.
