When something like this happens, you know it’s coming.

After Manchester United suffered one of the most humiliating losses in the club's illustrious history – a 4-0 defeat to third-tier club MK Dons in League Cup action on Tuesday – there was no shortage of tweets and memes roasting the famed English soccer side.

To make matters worse, Louis van Gaal was only making his third appearance as manager since taking over the team.

Ouch!

Ah, yes, Angel Di Maria wasn't forgotten, either. He just signed for a record 59.7 million pounds ($99 million) on Tuesday with the franchise.

First, watch the carnage below.


The reaction wasn't kind to Man United once the dust settled.
