MANCHESTER UNITED mascot Fred the Red summed up the mood at Old Trafford following the club’s 2-1 defeat by Brighton.
The Red Devils imploded in the first half with a brace from Pascal Gross, who scored the first goal after half an hour.
Things didn’t get any better for United throughout the game.
And her performance was too painful to watch to club mascot Fred the Red.

The Brazilian was at fault for Brighton’s second goal and was sent off early in the last third.
And fans on Twitter joked that Fred the Red would have done a better job than the midfielder that day.
A fan reacted under the published image B/R football: “You should have dressed Fred the Red instead of Fred the so-called midfielder.”

A third quipped: “Fred has just realized that moving the goalposts won’t avert the inevitable for ManU!”
Fred the Red’s reaction was mild compared to the group of United fans who started fighting among themselves during the game.
