Well then, thanks to one hashtag, Ryan Giggs' tenure as manager of Manchester United was off to an ominous start. 

Obviously, it was an ironic play when #giggsout trended on Twitter prior to Manchester United's match against Norwich City after the team sheets were released. But then again, when #moyesout was first surfaced, it was equally as ironic. 

The choice specifically to start whipping boy Tom Cleverly and start Juan Mata on the bench seemed to ignite Twitter.

#mufc team: De Gea; Jones, Vidic (c), Ferdinand, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Cleverley, Kagawa; Welbeck, Rooney.

No Giggs in the starting eleven for Man Utd? Shocking decision. #GiggsOut

Cleverley in ahead of Mata. Give Giggs the job permanent, please.
