After Manchester United’s dismal exit from the Carabao Cup at the hands of Newcastle United, Gary Neville labeled Old Trafford “Theatre of Nothing.”
The Magpies delivered a 3-0 drubbing to the Red Devils on Wednesday evening, avenging their Carabao Cup final defeat to United last season.
Miguel Almiron, Lewis Hall, and Joe Willock were the scorers. Despite the ongoing sale process and the surrounding uncertainty at the club, Erik ten Hag had received previous support from Neville.
However, the former United defender declared he had “had enough” and expressed his frustration on X after another heavy defeat, which followed a 3-0 thrashing by bitter rivals Manchester City last weekend.
Gary Neville wrote: “Last night we saw the Theatre of Dreams turn into the Theatre of Nothing.Every single United fan is bored and flat. On the pitch the players were in shock, the performances woeful and a manager struggling in front of our eyes. We’ve seen it before, we know how it ends and we’ve had enough.”
Neville highlighted the contrasting styles of management at Newcastle and the absence of it at United to elucidate the stark difference in quality between the two teams on the field. The former England international heaped praise on Dan Ashworth, who serves as the sporting director at St. James’ Park.
On Saturday, United will play a Premier League match against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
