Twitter is the only thing that is different from Manchester United's 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Liverpool on Sunday and the same result to Newcastle in 1996.
That is the opinion of Phil Neville, who has backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer like his brother Gary.
It comes after the result at the weekend which has left the Norwegian fighting for his job, though it appears he has won the first battle.
Sir Alex Ferguson pleaded in the boardroom not to sack the Red Devils coach and he will get the chance to redeem himself against Tottenham this weekend.
The response on social media has been overwhelming with many United fans turning on Solskjaer and wanting him to be sacked.
After the 5-0 loss to Liverpool, #OleOut was trending while potential successors such as Antonio Conte and Erik ten Hag were as well.
But Neville believes United have been in dark places before and have always emerged stronger – without social media interrupting.
He said: "This has happened and United bounced back and won things. I lost at St James' Park 5-0.
"Philippe Albert chipped Peter Schmeichel and it felt no different.
"The only difference was there was not a billion people on Twitter thinking they knew best about this, that and the other.
“The Steve Bruce case went beyond criticism, that was a form of bullying, disgusting behavior, trolling, some of the most disgusting things I have ever read or seen in my whole life.
“We live in an era where it’s seen as quite normal to ask people to be sacked, which I find absolutely incredible.
"If you were in any other workplace and you walked into a shop and you said, 'I want you to be sacked, I want you to be sacked,’ I think you would be reported to the police.”
