Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's perfect audition, who will become the next manager of Manchester United, continued his curtains in front of their joyous followers after making eight eight-time wins in the FA Cup's fourth round in Arsenal.
If the 45-year-old Norwegian has composed his own sleeping scenario after his appointment as temporary anti-José Mourinho after the Portuguese's dismissal in December, history could not be better off than that.
Solskayer – actually whistled borrowed from Molde in his native Norway with Old Trafford, deep into crisis, after Mourinho's indignation and dissatisfaction – witnessed a remarkable transformation in mood and performance.
And when executive vice president Ed Woodward expressed satisfaction, which seemed as if he might have to surgically remove when the last horn came to the Emirates Stadium, the questions asked for Solskayer are now in a very different context.
The discussion has come from "Can United really give it to Solskayer?" in the direction of "can United give it to someone other than to Solskayer?"
There will still be a huge element of risk after the previous failure of the Premier League in Cardiff City remains, and if there is an easy way to get Mauriceio Pointeno from Tottenham, it will still be the preferred option for those who make the decisions of United.
This question was put before the meeting with Wembley Spurs after the arrival of Solskjair coincided with a soft landing, softened by a relatively handy list of devices.
Solskjaer created a win in this game, his biggest test so far, before watching this impressive Arsenal victory, another significant victory at the home of a close rival.
And with every victory, the amount of evidence that strengthens Solskayer's case increases.
Solskayer surpassed expectations and met every request that Woodward and his colleagues would have done for him from the Old Trafford hierarchy when he responded to their urgent call.
He again made Manchester United a happy club. The diminutive looks of Mourinho's era were replaced by smiles – but it is much more than a mood. In a sense this is just the decoration of the windows.
Solskjayer did so as a starting point. He is on the pitch where he should have won full marks and succeeded.
He has formed a united management team with the return of wise old Mike Ferlan to work together with Michael Carrick and Kiran McKenna.
And most importantly, Manchester United of Solskjaer plays in a winning way that was abandoned in the past 18 months at Mourinho.
Solskjaer proved to be tactile and versatile in his two biggest games.
He used the pace and mobility of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in Spurs – after defining the physique of Romelu Lukaku aside – England's young striker who won Verve's first half winner who placed half-heroism for David De Gea's second place.
Solskjaer may have planned to shuffle his FA Cup package, but he did it with a game plan that created rich prizes at Arsenal.
He used Jesse Linggard in the center of his attack with Romulus Lukaku on the right – an unusual position where he actually had a devastating effect on Arsenal while in Everton and Sanchez on the left.
It acted as a charm. Lucascu perfectly set Sanchez and Linggar for both quick goals after half an hour that broke Arsenal's hopes. The trio was just too great for the rebuilt defense of the gunmen suffered by Sokratis and later to Laurent Cossili.
And if something sums up the mood of positivity and progress around Manchester United, then Solskayer made changes in the second half.
He replaced Sanchez and Lukaku with the new danger of Martial and Rashford. Midas touch was there again when Martyall scored the last goal to finish the victory.
Would Mourinho be so brave? Very unlikely. Phil Jones may be his preferred option.
Solskjaer has fired key players like Paul Pogba and Martyll while releasing Rapsford's enormous potential – this midad touches again.
The thousands of traveling Manchester United fans crammed at one end of the Emirates stadium made their feelings clear when Solskayer's name thundered and he took his nose in front of them.
Yes, the reservations expressed here on the idea of Solskjaer as a full-time manager remain.
Would Sulskayer have the same effect if the players knew he was their full time boss? Will the shine and novelty disappear? How will they react when disappointed with bad news?
This is a huge decision for Manchester United.
Did they really expect that they would discuss Solskjayer as a permanent heir to Mourinho when they made the decision to give up the Special?
This will be a brave move, but Solskayer gives them this choice to make and add weight to his claims with each game.
Solskayer moved to United within three points of Chelsea in the Premier League's top four and now has scored United in the fifth round of FA Cup after a potentially dangerous withdrawal.
After the desperate failure of the miserable David Moeses, Woodward sought out great players in the form of Louis van Gaal and Mourinho. Trophies, if not those that the UK is most striving for, may have come, but in the end they failed and the price offered was deadly.
Solskjaer, unlike this trio, looks comfortable in his own Old Trafford skin. He knows the club, how it works and what is expected. And the presence of Fellan – the trust of Sir Alex Ferguson's right hand for so long – will reinforce old messages and standards.
Woodward has to decide if what he sees from Solskayer makes the most convincing case to kidnap him from his stellar approach to management appointments.
This is by no means a bargain, nor should it be at this stage, but Solskjaer has two great opportunities to get closer to what is necessary in the eyes of the United Nations supporters and those who are in charge of this next meeting.
Manchester United faced Paris Saint-Germain in the first Champions League match on February 16, and then faced Liverpool on Old Trafford shortly afterwards.
If Solskayer could lead United's last PSG on two legs in the Champions League quarterfinals and throw the victory that always appeals to United fans' senses – damaging Liverpool's ambitions – the band may get unstoppable.
And if he continues this way and win these games, how even those of us who still have doubts about whether he should be the next manager of Manchester United claim against his right to be in the queue?
It was another night of great significance for Solskjayer.
