Manchester United is currently 20th on the Premier League table, their first in that position since 1992.
Erik Ten Hag also become the first Manchester United manager to lose his first two games in charge of the Red Devils centuries ago. The Red Devils have now lost 7 consecutive away matches since 1936.
Manchester United could set another unprecedented record when they face Liverpool next week Monday. The Red Devils lost 5-0 to Liverpool last season at Old Trafford.
Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan believes Manchester United had hit rock bottom and he expects them to lose against Liverpool.
What is Simon Jordon’s assessment of Manchester United?
The 54-year-old said on TalkSports: “It is priced in that Manchester United will get spanked by Liverpool in their next match.
“It was not priced in to get beaten by Brighton and Brentford, though.
“Manchester United as a big club is like the Monty Python sketch with the parrot. It is a dead parrot, it no longer exists, it is an ex-parrot.
“You look at United now and you say there is nothing about this football club, in any of its guises, from the Glazers to the chief executive, the attitude towards the fans from the manor they run the football club.
“The decisions they have made to delegate to people who are not able to be delegated to.
“You delegate someone when you know what the outcome is going to be, otherwise you don’t have the ability to delegate.
“You get yourself hands deep and find out what is going on.”
The former Crystal Palace owner slams Manchester United recruitment and the tactics of Erik Ten Hag.
“From the Glazers to the chief executive sitting in the pub negotiating with fans, through to Â£400million worth of players on the pitch that have an average age of 27, with 300 appearances between them as an average, not competing in a game, through to a coach who is picking equivalent of Tattoo from Fantasy Island, a vertically challenged center-half to play against 6ft 4in strikers.
“Through to a coach who is supposed to know better, such as Steve McClaren who has been at Manchester United [before], through to the fans and their unrest.
“There is nothing about this football club at this moment in time to suggest it is the Manchester United that we all know.
“You look at that and say ‘sometimes if the life you can’t bounce until you hit the bottom, and I think they hit the bottom against Brentford.
“I think they hit the bottom tactically, in the players’ cowardice to change the way they played on the pitch.
“If you are told to play out all week, and you practice it, surely when you get on the pitch and it is not available, you do something different.
“You make decisions as top quality players, you look at that and say ‘Erik ten Hag is on that because he picked a team who he thought could roll over Brentford.
“He picked one which was tactically wrong with center-backs who were 2ft tall, who could not compete. A ridiculously poor goalkeeper, there is nothing the manager could have done about the first two goals, that is on the goalkeeper.
“You look at it and see you have got people like the two wide players, who have no backside in terms of backbone, in Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho that don’t get themselves involved, Bruno Fernandes is lightweight, Christian Eriksen is playing as a holding midfield player, who has never played there before.
“McClaren is just sitting there after being brought in, and everyone is saying ‘it is all about the Glazers’, you have people like Trotskyite Gary Neville telling the world a fish rots on the top of its head.
“When you take the backbone out of a fish which is the team, you have nothing else left either.
“They should not be putting a performance out, irrespective of the challenges they have got, with that group of players with that kind of spend pattern, and get beaten in that way by both Brighton and Brentford.”
