Mixed feelings.
Sad and disappointed with our state of club and where we are. However happy that it's an All-English CL and Europa Finals. It's doing great things for PL football. Hopefully a start to more good times to come.
Also I hope our Board members feel disgusted with their handling of the club and how bad we have become. Big and rich club is one thing. But if it doesn't come with great football and titles we will sooner or later lose our perch. We are already being overtaken as a biggest club. That could be the start of worse to come if we do not take a hard look at ourselves.
The Board needs to understand that WE ARE A FOOTBALL CLUB. Making money come with good football and titles. I'd rather be a 4th or 5th largest club but win titles than the biggest club in the world but yet can string a few titles.
My worst fear is that if we do not do the right thing we will become a mid table club soon. I'll die if we become a lower half table club if we are not careful.
Right now we still have the means in financial strength so we had better do a bloody proper job to strategize the next 2 years. I'd like to see Man Utd win at least another PL or CL title before I gone from this earth 🙄.
Till then I'll still be supporting the club.

I was thinking last night does the fact that we have a full English Europa and Champions League finals, along with City and Liverpool breaking records in the league just highlight how hard and how competitive the EPL has got this season?

Its easy to judge our performances based on what we have seen before. But the EPL is far more competitive than it ever was during Sir Alex's time in charge of the club.

Back then United had one serious challenger for the league, Arsenal, Chelsea and City at different points. But now there are genuinely 5-6 teams competing for the league.

Then you look at the quality of teams such as Wolves, Everton and Leicester all of them boost 40, 50 or even 70m players in their side.

Maybe we need to consider the quality of the opposition now when comparing our form to what it was back when.

{Ed001's Note - no Shaps there is just two teams genuinely competing for the league.}

Chelsea raised the bar many years ago when Jose first arrived. City have now raised it further and Liverpool have risen to the challenge. Right now I think they are the best 2 teams in Europe. As for Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, and day I say us, on their day able to put in a great performance against anybody but not able to do it consistently.

I think our challenge is to ship out the disruptive and negative influences, recruit we, get fit, work hard, adopt a clear style and focus on closing the gap. We could fail miserably or we could finish 3rd.

True Shapps.
That’s why I’m am saying if we are not careful we will be taken over as the other teams are showing their improvements. Their players show passion and wanting to make something of their stay in the club. For us, we do not have that many who wants to do that other than wanting more money and yet not doing much.
City and Pool are doing well but if you notice they didn’t do it overnight. It took them at least 3 years to make such a big gap with the rest. So I’m for us to build the team (with a proper plan and stick to it) to challenge in 3 years but a bonus if in 2 years. Get the right strategy and stick with and support the manager.

Good point AJH.
We need to buy strategically to complement the young team we want to build. Use the Europa to get the younger team more experience. Nothing really to lose but everything to win.
Key purchase of 2-3 senior players would help us go a long way I feel.

Ed001, in the end there was. However, if you look at the point tally's of the teams 3rd-5th they are at a level that would have made them serious challengers, even winners in some past years of the EPL.

Which is kind of my point, I did point out that Liverpool and City have had record breaking a record breaking season. Which has risen the bar even further.

{Ed001's Note - but this is not a previous year. Those teams were nowhere near challenging at any point, no matter how much the media tried to include Spurs in it. There were just two teams challenging.}

Good post AJH.

We need a marquee signing to put the faith back into the heart of the fans everywhere. Viva Ronaldo (age is just a number) 🤣🤣.
