Manchester United will have to be thoroughly restarted in the summer after the season has ended in terms of fashion. This terrible defeat by Cardiff City, which has already relegated, was followed by last Sunday's draw in Huddersfield Town, meaning that Ole Gunnar Solskjær's side have had a hip flask since being named a permanent coach.
That was in late March and since then only Watford and West Ham United have been beaten in two wins and eight defeats in all competitions.
This afternoon, they started brilliantly but were toothless at the gate, allowing Neil Warnock's men to take an easy excursion.
This means United occupy sixth place – the position they had when Solskjær took over before Christmas – and have to play in the Europa League at the end of July when Watford wins the FA Cup.
Solskjær made his full debut to Mason Greenwood and made five changes as Diogo Dalot, Andreas Pereira, also Chris Smalling, Jesse Lingard, came in. Antonio Valencia, the captain, was sitting on the bench, his last engagement before he left, while Ander Herrera, who is also leaving, was absent.  659002] Warnock made two changes: Víctor Camarasa, who was injured, and Danny Ward, who came in as Kenneth Zohore and Leandro Bacuna.
Cardiff's first goal came when Nathaniel Mendez-Laing threw the ball past Dalot in the area. When the right-back tried to recover, he stretched out a leg and went to No. 19. When Dalot protested, referee Jonathan Moss gave the penalty, which seemed hard. Mendez-Laing climbed to the delight of the traveling fans, who sang 1-0 for the championship and scored their former manager 1-0 for the morning sacking a goal.
In the second half, Solskjær took down Phil Jones and put Anthony Martial to work. Scott McTominay had to go into central defense here, and under pressure from Zohore he soon got a throw in near the gate.
It was McTominay's failed duel that led to Cardiff's second goal on the right and with great freedom ahead of David de Gea, he sought out Mendez-Laing, who had an old age.
United entered Shambolic territory. Every time they drove forward a loose Martial or Lingard pass or a missed shot from Paul Pogba or Rashford, every hope of a comeback ended. There was a panic, a lack of the required quality: serenity. Cardiff was the team that prevailed throughout the afternoon, and every time they attacked they looked controlled and probably scored a goal.
Solskjær's last move was to remove Pereira and Dalot for Angel Gomes and Valencia, the latter receiving a warming welcome.
] But this proved to be satisfactory, as the home fans would feel. At the final whistle there was – hardly surprising – a tingling sensation.
