That’s according to Jamie Redknapp who, on Sky Sports, was in disbelief when Brentford scored four goals in the first half to stun United and all who watched.
Goals from Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo left Redknapp and co-commentator Gary Neville all but lost sight of.
Speaking after the fourth goal, Neville said: “What a first half of football we see here, the annihilation of Manchester United.”
“What do you do at half time if you’re Erik ten Hag? What can you say to those 11 players who were there in the first half? What can you say?
“I think you should just fire them, that would be all. I’m not sure what else he can do.”
Redknapp was equally scathing, continuing with: “I can’t believe what I’m looking at from this Manchester United team. It’s like it’s a team that has a Manchester United badge, but they’re just thrown there. -down.
“They don’t seem to show responsibility, care. I think the manager makes mistakes.
“Christian Eriksen is not a defensive midfield player in his life and he plays him in that role today, so he has to accept that. (Lisandro) Martinez, not strong enough as a central defender, is intimidated.”
