As Manchester United registered yet another 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace, their fans seemed to be pretty perturbed by the fact that the Red Devils are not being able to find the back of the net.
Manchester United have now gone 295 minutes in all competitions without scoring a single goal, and this is something that has been irking their fans. In fact, in the entire 90 minutes against Crystal Palace, Manchester United managed to get just one shot on target.
The 3,000-strong travelling contingent seemed to be annoyed by the fact that their team, although defensively solid, was not able to create good chances against Alan Pardew’s men.
This frustration has been fuelled by Manchester United legend Paul Scholes, who said earlier this week that the team under manager Louis van Gaal did not take enough risks in an attacking sense. He had also said that legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson would never use such defensive tactics.
United fans spontaneously chant Scholes’ name now. Hint of mutiny perhaps. #mufc

The Manchester United supporters seemed to have been building on this criticism of Scholes, as they chanted, “Attack Attack, Attack!”
Re. the Scholes chant. United fans weren’t going through their repertoire of ex-players’ songs. It was very deliberate. a Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) October 31, 2015
In spite of these chants however, the Red Devils finished their third consecutive match with a 0-0 scoreline. You can watch the video of the United away fans chanting at Selhurst Park below:
