Manchester United endured a pasting both on the pitch and online last night during their 4-0 loss to League One side MK Dons.
There were the old classics…
What's the difference between Man Utd and a tea bag?

And when Man Utd fans woke up… yes, it was still bad:
It's going to be hard for Man Utd to attract players of the calibre of Vidal and de Jong now they're out of the Capital One Cup.
