MANCHESTER UNITED supporters flooded social media and demanded new signings after Sunday night's Super Bowl.
Red Devils fans watched their team owners, the Glazer family, hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy aloft after Tampa Bay Buccaneers' win.
The Buccaneers dominated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 to win the Super Bowl in their home Raymond James Stadium.
Their title run was sparked by signing Tom Brady last summer and an incredible defensive performance on Sunday.
And the irony of Tampa Bay's strong defence was not lost on Man Utd fans.
A tweet read: "The Buccaneers defence was fairly tidy, a CB loan deal until the end of the season for Man Utd. Glazer fam you listening? We can really use a CB."

Another said: "At least one of the Glazers teams knows how to defend."
A hopeful post read: "Glazers’ team won, maybe this means they’ll finally invest in Man Utd."
One social media user wrote: "Hey Glazers Family,
Man Utd needs some cash for signings. They deserve it too."
And another post said: "Hey look it's the Glazer family. All Man Utd fans are very happy seeing this…not."
US moguls the Glazer family brought Manchester United in 2005, but have proved unpopular with fans.
Supporters protested their ownership and the amount of debt the club was forced to take on.
But they won the Super Bowl for the second time with Tampa Bay Buccaneers – who they brought in 1995 – with their first success back in 2003.
Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and the Buccaneers defence stifled Patrick Mahomes and Co.
Joel Glazer, 50, lifted the Vince Lombardi Trophy on the field in Tampa and made a rare speech.
He said: "I've got to start by saluting all the healthcare workers here -they're the real champions.
"My father had an expression. If you want to know the road ahead then ask the person who's been there.
"We found that person. Ten Super Bowl appearances, seven wins. Tom Brady."
Brady, 43, was named Super Bowl MVP for a fifth time on his way to a seventh victory in the NFL's showpiece season finale.
He said: "I'm so proud of all these guys. Everything we dealt with all year. We came together at the right time.
"We knew this was going to happen tonight. We ended up playing our best game of the year."
