Official social media accounts are always supposed to look on the bright side of life. Whether the result is good or bad, Twitter is a place for firm belief and a stridently positive attitude, no matter what.
Yet Man United's official Twitter account couldn't help but let the sadness show on Sunday. During their difficult 1-1 draw at Sunderland in which Louis van Gaal's side again looked disjointed and slow, the truth of the side's struggles was laid bare:
86'- Time is running out at the Stadium of Light and, in truth, Sunderland look the more likely winners at the moment. #MUFClive- Manchester United (@ManUtd) August 24, 2014
It wasn't their only bit of realism during Sunday's game, either:
Get well soon, @ManUtd.
