I'm not sure what other people's opinion is and although I'd like United to endeavour to catch City, I am happy with second place! To go from 6th last year to 2nd this year is fine with me! Build from there and go again next year I say.

I’m sorry Luke but I can’t disagree with this more! We should NEVER settle for second best. We are Manchester United. Winning is in our DNA and once we start to settle for second best then we lose what makes us so special. I feel we have lost some of our soul since Fergie has left but I think slowly Jose is bringing it back.

I get what you mean that going from 6th to 2nd is decent but it isn’t for us. Maybe for spurs and Liverpool it is but we should always being aiming for first. Anything less is failure in my eyes. I think with our full team and pogba pulling the strings we have a decent side. I think we should enjoy chasing city down as we used to back in the day under Fergie. This is a crucial Xmas period and we need to build up a head of steam. Bring on city in 3 weeks time!

Luke, are you really happy with 2nd place? We're Manchester United for God's sake. We can't be happy with 2nd. We need to win the league pretty soon and I've got to say, I can't see City slipping up. I think the league will more or less be over by February. They have a strong defence despite what deluded people think. They also have an incredibly talented midfield and attack.
We have Brighton followed by Watford and Arsenal and I can't see us getting more than 4 points out of these three games.
Our team looks totally unbalanced. Two wingers playing at full backs. Two strikers playing as wingers. Two centre backs who frankly speaking are not United quality (smalling and Lindelof) . Lots of work needed and lots of money and intelligence has to go into our next purchases.
So I'm not happy we're 2nd but we won't be anywhere near City come the end of season.

In an ideal world of cpurse we want to be first in the league - that's who we r!

But to put a bit of persepctive on the postion we finish in -

What IF we finish 2nd in the league but our points and goal tally is enough that we would have actually won the league with the same amount over the last few yrs. Meaning city win it breaking a ptem reord for points.

I wouldn't be happy to lose and come 2nd but it would show a massive improvemnt.

Why do we think we should be 1st just becuase we are man utd. the past means absolutely nothing people need to stop living the FERGIE dream.

Times have changed football has changed.

You live in the present and work hard and fight.

Being 1st is earnt not demanded becuase of past accolades.


I can see where he's coming from saying "happy with 2nd" becuase I think a lot of us would be happy with 2nd.

That's not saying WERE not aiming for first. I don't think you go into a season aiming for anything less than first. But just becuase of who the club is you can t just expect to be first. That's is given through being earnt.

We have played 12 games and already people are slating the team and the manager

We will be blaming the nets and the pitch soon.

Yes there's things that can be improved on but there's a reason why we're just fans.

We're far better improved than last season and even more so than the season before. Let's judge the team at the end of the season.


AAA - you say from our next 3 games we won't get more than 4 points what's that based on?

We're having our best season since we last won it. Scoring goals for fun and playing attacking football.

We've had 2 losses and the majority have gone into absolute meltdown.

If city were not doing as good as they are. the MAJORITY would be quite happy.

Some have interpreted my comment as it was intended, others have not. I just feel that next summer if we have finished second that upon reflection I’d be completely ok with that. It would demonstrate a lot of improvement and the best season since Fergie left with reference to the league, and to me that’s ok! The cliche Rome wasn’t built in a day seems relevant here, I’d obviously have higher expectations next season but after taking several steps in the wrong direction in the last few years I’d be happy that we’re actually heading in the right direction again! I always hope United won the league of course I do but as some posters have mentioned there’s still areas of the team that need some work.

We should never aim anything less than winning the league every season. We don't want to become complacent like Arsenal. Way to early yet to be settling for places. If we get to the end of the season and end up finishing 2nd. I don't think it be the end of the world. I do expect though to compete for every competition until we realistically can't anymore.

20 Nov 2017 20:39:02
I think we are far more competative now since Jose took over.

And last year proved are capable of winning trophies

Alot of the more experienced players have gone.

We are still in a transition and we are making positive steps

He may be annoying with the way he acts somtimes but he gets the job done and is a top class manager.


There's more than 1 trophy up for grabs and were far from out the race yet.
