Analysis from Old Trafford by Simon Stone
There was a nod to Solskjaer’s appointment as manager before kick-off with a brief blast of the Stone Roses’ ‘Waterfall’ from which United fans have derived their ‘Ole’s at the wheel’ song.
But in truth, there was not much different at Old Trafford today.
United fans have been singing Solskjaer songs since his appointment as caretaker boss in December and will probably continue to do so after the Norwegian leaves, whenever that is.
What Solskjaer’s hero status will not do is shield him from the need to win football matches.
There were no complaints of him whatsoever but as the hosts laboured in the opening stages and gifted Watford possession on far too many occasions for comfort, there was frustration in the stands. And that became anxiety as Watford were presented with their chance to snatch a point in added time.
It’s a fair bet that, by the time United next play here, against Barcelona in the Champions League on 10 April, the souvenir sellers will have got their act together and got themselves some Solskjaer manager-related material to sell.
But for this appointment to work in the long term, Solskjaer needs to build a winning United team. And for that to happen against better teams than Watford and in the long term, he is probably going to need new players in the summer.
