It seems a bit on the harsh side, just because they couldn't win at the promoted team.

We'll see what happens if we don't win at Sheffield... :o :o

Seems something is not right there wonder if they have someone else lined up and McDonald is being given the old heave-ho for them?  All very sudden and after 1 game into the new season.

Very very odd to say the least

It seems that the likliest reason was that the players didn't like him. Its fairly obvious that it had nothing to do with the results, as there weren't many bad ones

You don't sack your manager just for having a draw in the first match which you were expexcted to win.

Fergie had better watch his back at OT if that's the case. ;D
