The perfect audience of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will become Manchester United's next manager continued with him taking a curtain call before his gentle followers after making it eight wins of eight in the FA Cup fourth round at Arsenal.
If the 45-year-old Norway drew up his own dream script after his appointment as the inter-Jose Mourinho interim, after the Portuguese salary in December, the story could not be mapped better than this.
Solskjaer – actually whistled on Molde's loan in his native Norway with Old Trafford deeply in crisis after the resentment and displeasure of the time of Mourinho – dominated a remarkable transformation in mood and action.
And with executive vice president Ed Woodward, having an expression of satisfaction, seems to have been surgically removed as the final whistle near Emirates Stadium, the questions about Solskjaer are now embedded in a very different context.
The discussion has traveled from "whether United will really give it to Solskjaer?" in the direction of "whether United in fact give it to someone else except Solskjaer?"
There would still be a great element of risk given to the previous failure of the Premier League of Solskjaer at Cardiff City and the suspicion will be that if a route was to be designated by Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino, this would still be the preferred choice for the decision makers.
This question was presented before the meeting with Spurs at Wembley after the arrival of Solskjaer agreed with a soft landing lying by a relatively comfortable list.
Solskjaer made a victory in this game, his biggest attempt to that point, overseen this awesome victory at Arsenal, another major victory at the home of a nearby rival.
And with every victory, the body of evidence that reinforces the case of Solskjaer grows.
Solskjaer exceeded the expectations and met every requirement that Woodward and his colleagues in the Old Trafford hierarchy would do to him when he responded to his emergency call.
He again made a happy club to Manchester United. The shouts of the time of Mourinho were replaced with smiles – but it is a lot more than to improve humor. In some ways this is just the window dress.
Solskjaer made his starting point. It is on the pitch where he had to win full marks and he succeeded.
He formed a knitting management with the return of a wise old head Mike Phelan to work with Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.
And most importantly, the Manchester United of Solskjaer played in a way – victorious – which had been a failure in the last 18 months under Mourinho.
Solskjaer has proven to be tactically stupid and flexible in his two biggest games.
He used the rhythm and mobility of Anthony Marcial and Marcus Rashford at Spurs – after determining Romeli Lukaku's physicalism on the side – the young English striker wins the winner in the first half of verve that set the platform for the second half heroes.
Solskjaer may have planned to tackle his FA Cup package, but he did it with a playground that produced rich rewards at Arsenal.
He used Jesse Lingard through the center of his attack with Romelu Lukaku to the right – an uncontrolled position, where he actually acted with a devastating effect against Arsenal during Everton – and Sanchez on the left.
It worked like a charm. Lukaku made Sanchez and Lingard well for the two fast goals after half an hour, which destroyed Arsenal's hopes. The trio was simply too much for the recommended defense of the gunmen, hit by a wound to Sokratis and then to Laurent Koscielny.
And if anything was upheld the mood of positiveness and progress crushing around Manchester United, it was when Solskjaer made his two-half changes.
He replaced Sanchez and Lukaku with the new danger of Marcial and Rashford. The breakthrough again became there as Martial announced the delayed goal that wrapped the victory.
Would Mourinho be so dazzling? Very unlikely. Phil Jones may have been his favorite choice.
Solskjaer has launched keys like Paul Pogba and Martial, while releasing Rashford's huge potential – that midas affects again.
Thousands of Manchester United travelers fulfilled in one end of Emirates Stadium made their feelings clear when Solskjaer's name threw himself and he took his bow before them.
Yes, the reserves expressed herein about Solskjaer's idea remain a full-time administrator.
Would Solskjaer have the same effect if the players knew he was their full-time leader? Will the shade and the novelty be worn out? How would he react when he disappointed them with bad news?
This is a huge decision for Manchester United.
Did they really anticipate that they would discuss Solskjaer as a permanent successor to Mourinho when they decided to eliminate The Special One?
It would be a brave move but Solskjaer will give them that choice to make and add weight to their ads with each game.
Solskjaer moved United to within Chelsea's three points in the top four leaders of the Premier League and has now taken United to FA Cup's fifth round after a powerful remainder.
Since the desperate failure of the defensive David Moyes, Woodward has been searching for great combatants in the form of Louis van Gaal and Mourinho. Trophies, if not those who mostly come together may come, but ultimately they failed, and the offer of the offer was deadly colorless.
Solskjaer, unlike that trio, looks comfortable in his own skin at Old Trafford. He knows the club how it works and what is expected. And the presence of Phelan – Sir Alex Ferguson's reliable right hand for this long time – will reinforce old messages and norms.
Woodward has to decide what he sees from Solskjaer, he makes the brave thing to drag him away from his seal-access to administrative appointments.
It has not been made an agreement, nor should it be in this stage, but Solskjaer received two great opportunities coming to make himself close to vital in the eyes of the supporters of the United Nations and those accused of making this next appointment.
Manchester United faced Paris St-Germain in the Champions League last-16 first stage on February 12 and later faced Liverpool at Old Trafford shortly after.
If Solskjaer can lead United Past PSGs over two legs in the Champions League Champions and launch the kind of victory that always calls on the feelings of fans of the United States – damaging the title of Liverpool ambitions – the car road can get an awkward moment.
And if he will continue and win those games, just as even those of those who still have the doubts about whether he should be Manchester United's next full-time administrator argue against their right to be at the head of the tail?
This was another night of great importance for Solskjaer.
