Manchester United are taking some heat for bringing back painful memories
The last few seasons have brought some moments to forget for Manchester United fans.
After going the entire Premier League era without finishing lower than third, the last three seasons have seen the Red Devils fail to crack the top three even once.
And forgettable seasons bring forgettable results, not least the one at the King Power Stadium just a couple of months into Louis van Gaal's two-year tenure.
United threw away a 3-1 lead to lose 5-3 to Leicester City, ending the game with 10 men, and even a sensational goal from Ángel Di María couldn't rid fans of those painful memories.
I said even a sensational goal from Ángel Di María couldn't rid fans of those painful memories.
Guys? Are you listening? Guys? Oh, it's too late.

Di Maria's goal was one of United's best that season, if not one of the best scored by anyone in the Premier League, and with José Mourinho taking his team to Leicester this weekend there was presumably a feeling that it would remind fans of the good times.
The only problem is that the good times, on that occasion, lasted less than 90 minutes. And Di Maria isn't exactly Patrice Evra when you're looking at ranking former United players by popularity.
Fans' responses were, let's say, frosty.

And if you were looking for one tweet that sums up fans' sentiment towards the club's social media team, it's probably this one.
