Fans returned to Old Trafford for the first time in 18 months to see a Champions League match, as the time ticks away, with grinning faces, they watch and pray for a messiah to show up.
Cristiano Ronaldo did show up at the death and scored the winner and everyone went into delirium leading the long night's long celebration bare-chested as Manchester United defeated Villareal by 2-1 in the UEFA Champions League match played on Wednesday.
The result is all that matters at that point, the maximum points keep them in contention in the group after losing the first game to Young Boys of Switzerland, they needed to bounce back of which they did.
But beyond the celebration and jubilation that followed the victory, a true Manchester United fan should be worried about the performance of the team as the early signs are not good enough.
The team has not been able to give a convincing performance, the cohesion in the team is a suspect and the coach's body language is not showing enough confidence.
He needs to do more to show that he has the requisite expertise to match the expectations of the fans especially with the return of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The coach needs to solve the team's problems as quickly as possible, as the games come thick and fast.
The team cannot continue to rely on individual brilliance to win games forever, the coach must find a balance to play as a team.
He should work on the team effective use of the ball as getting the ball from the back to the final third has never been smooth for United and it's even more difficult for the team to regain possession when chasing the ball.
The coach needs to get the right combination of players and fashion out definite winning strategies otherwise October might be worse for Manchester United as they face Everton, Leicester, Liverpool, Tottenham and Atalanta in the new month.
