You wait months for a bit of big news to come out of a club and then all of a sudden they just go mad and shower us with the stuff.

Barely 24 hours since Manchester United finally brought an end to a soap opera that's been going longer than Coronation Street by announcing the arrival of Jadon Sancho, the club have now confirmed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has signed a new three-year deal at the club.

Say what you like about the Norwegian boss' tenure, the Red Devils have improved their final league standing in both of the two full seasons he's been in charge at Old Trafford - securing Champions League football two years on the trot - and they look like they could finally have a bit of stability after years of turmoil following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Given United's steady progress since Solskjaer took charge, it's probably no surprise to hear that swathes of the Twitter universe showed complete support for the announcement.

Isn't it nice when everyone on social media can agree on something and there's no squabbles?

You should know by now that's not how Twitter works...

Never mind all that, today is Solskjaer's day and he richly deserves all the plaudits coming his way for having dragged United away from the threat of becoming a mid-table Premier League side - a plight which genuinely looked like it could be on the horizon at one point.

Well, we say it's his day, that would be true apart from the fact everyone on Twitter decided to start venting their opinions on Ed Woodward - they weren't particularly pleasant opinions either.

Anyway, forget all the negativity surrounding the move, some of Solksjaer's stats since taking the reins at United are pretty impressive...

So, plenty to be excited about for United fans moving forward then, but at least they're a sensible bunch who know not to get ahead of themselves.
