Manchester United's miserable start to the season has been well-documented, but the 4-0 loss in the Capital One Cup to MK Dons represented perhaps a new low.  

Social media had a field day, of course, including a raft of names enjoying the Red Devils' misfortunes:

Sprint king Usain Bolt, a Manchester United fan, recently promised to get in touch with Louis van Gaal directly if results didn't pick up:

Meanwhile, the juxtaposition between United getting a pasting and breaking the British transfer record hours earlier to sign Angel Di Maria was getting mocked:

It was also a chance to bring back some old favourite memes from the David Moyes era...albeit with a twist:

BREAKING: David Moyes is back!

Hang on a minute!

First it was Moyes and now it's Van Gaal! This is jokes 😂
