Manchester United's loss to Swansea City on the opening day of the new English Premier League season on Saturday must have left a bad taste in the mouths of the United players.
That was especially true for Ashley Young, who had a glob of matter, which looked suspiciously like bird poo, fly right in his mouth midway through a rant at his teammates.
Managers may emphasise communication on the pitch but Young could be keeping quiet from now on.
As expected, the memes came rolling in after new United manager Louis van Gaal suffered defeat in his first EPL game.
Some have been quick to point out that the dreadful David Moyes kicked off his doomed campaign last season with a 4-1 thrashing of the very same team.
At least Van Gaal can say that he's a record breaker.
