In my reaction post to the 3-0 debacle against RSL, I wondered how long it would take for the headsman to show. Turns out, not so long. Sadly, he claimed the wrong head, or at least not enough heads.
Look, I'm about as enamored of Onalfo as slugs are salt, but this is one dirty Jedi mind trick by the FO. Toss out Onalfo as a scapegoat, question his ability to motivate players, install as boss the one man who every United fan loves, and wash your hands of the whole affair.
"These aren't the heads you're looking for" + hand-waving + empty words about fire and devotion to the shirt = headsman walking away without the two noggins that should be rattling around in his basket. You feeling particularly weak minded today?
Was Onalfo the wrong coach? Probably. Did he put together this abominable team? Nope.
Get the fingers ready, evil monkeys, we know who to blame.
Good luck, Benny. You're going to need it.
