USA Soccer Guy was sticking up for the beleaguered former champions:

On the flip side for Unity, don't see any of the EPL franchises that finished above them last year make it to round2. #CapitalPunishmentCup

— Soccer Guy (@usasoccerguy) August 26, 2014

… but empathised with the plight of the MK Dons fans:

Those MK Dons soccer fans must have waited decades for a soccer game like that. #lameassmanunity

To follow up the ice bucket challenge I now think we should all send in our wacky videos of getting beat 4-0 by MK Dons.

Weird day for Man United – Shattering the English transfer record and getting destroyed by a club in the third division in the same day…

— Matthew Alrick Brown (@alrickbrown) August 26, 2014

There's a Griggs pasty pun to be had somewhere but I just can't find it #mufc

— Elizabeth (@legsidelizzy) August 26, 2014

This guy’s dad was pleased:

Amazing: dad's told me he's on a United forum to see how miserable they all are. 'Classic stuff' he says. He's having the night of his life.

— Nick Miller (@NickMiller79) August 26, 2014

And the journalists had their say:

Another quiet night involving #mufc

— James Ducker (@DuckerTheTimes) August 26, 2014

Man Utd are not going to win anything with these kids…

How did United sink this far this fast?

Ripped off in the transfer market, ripped apart on the pitch. The new #mufc

— Darren Lewis (@MirrorDarren) August 26, 2014

Why would any United fan WANT van Gaal's autograph after that debacle? Other than on a P45?

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) August 26, 2014

If I was a Manchester United player, I just wouldn’t go in at full-time. I’d sneak out with the crowd like in ‘Escape to Victory’.

— Iain Macintosh (@iainmacintosh) August 26, 2014

Van Gaal 3rd at the World Cup but can't even reach League Cup 3rd round

— Rob Harris (@RobHarris) August 26, 2014

One Manchester United fan had a harsh punishment in mind for the players:

Every player that has played tonight should be fined for 2 months. This is absolutely shocking performance. #mufc

— Alex (@Alexllyod92) August 26, 2014

But The Guy Next Door was worried about the social cost:

Someone needs to start a phone line for depressed #mufc fans

— The Guy Next Door (@guy_in_london) August 26, 2014

While some were just busy plotting the statistics…
