Ha, if that's true jred, I find it absolutely hilarious.

I can't wait to read the comments on this 🍿.

27 Aug 2019 16:38:41
Get the red tinted glasses off jred with your facts and damned lies.

We are useless and always have been.

27 Aug 2019 16:42:57
Jred as I said at the end of a post below, I think it provides a little perspective.

We all know we are not back to where we need to be.

I think there are some positives, 3 good signings who improve us, signs of more effort and urgency to our play, which we all were not happy with last year.

That table shows me that things are not as quite as dire as we might think with the disappointment of the last two results. It shows that over an extended period we were closer to the top than bottom. 3rd is better than 5th or 6th.

Teams aren’t judged in the PL on wether they had a blinding January or got maximum points on November. They’re judged over 38 games.
Factually, when you look at our last 24 we are 3rd. That cannot be disputed.

27 Aug 2019 16:45:55
Come off it, this is heavily influenced by the amazing run we went on between december and march. We have won 3 games out of the last 16 under ole and people are right to be worried.

What is more reflective of oles management ability, that amazing run or the dismal run we are still on, we will have to wait and see.

27 Aug 2019 17:02:26
Would you rather we didn't have that amazing run.

27 Aug 2019 17:15:36
I fully agree with everything you all said here.

27 Aug 2019 17:14:06
Typical Jred.

Ba3s on your table qe are only 6 point ahead of Crystal palace with a far superior squad and spent ten times more money then them.

This shows how below par we are currently performing.

27 Aug 2019 17:24:32
Wrd. That's an interesting question.
Im not sure of my answer to be honest.

27 Aug 2019 17:31:52
Or maybe, Palace aren't a rubbish side, and it's a very tough league. Should Spurs not be above them if we're talking money spent and superior squads?

27 Aug 2019 17:41:29
i thought ole was the savour last season going to get 4th easily. he started of great and ended abysmally.

27 Aug 2019 18:00:33
That’s a very interesting stat, Spurs also went well of the boil in the latter part of the season but had banked points earlier.

There is an incongruity here. How can a team have such a great run followed by such a poor run as we did. I think there are issues to addressed; Lukaku and (hopefully) Sanchez going will help, a stronger RB and CB will also help. Pogba remains the enigma, if he doesn’t get his move will he deliver?

We are trying new things, promoting youth, pressing more. Ole may or may not work out but I’m happy to wait a few months to see.

27 Aug 2019 18:03:23
This is perfect and hopefully puts to bed this nonsense of judging Ole on the last 10 games of last season to try and prove a point without looking at the whole picture.

It also points out the run of form Crystal Palace have been on, above Spurs (UCL finalists) equal with Chelsea and only a point behind Arsenal. Stunning form and proves the point that some fans were extremely arrogant to suggest we would thump them 4 or 5 nil last weekend.

27 Aug 2019 18:16:17
The whole picture is that Ole started with an impressive run.

Since February he has struggled to produce consistently good results or football. I think he has been sold short by the board in the transfer window, but is in post precisely because he won’t complain about being sold short.

27 Aug 2019 18:22:18
What's the points tally since he was made permanent?

27 Aug 2019 18:34:14
I think lack of fitness did for us in the latter part of last season, as much as anything else.

27 Aug 2019 19:00:55

Exactly, that is what counts because most if not all temps get a good reaction, dead cat bounce I believe it is called. Would anyone in their right mind have appointed him if they reviewed it appropriately at the end of the season?

United fans are emotional sentimental beings, you only have to look at the arguments on here to see that.

27 Aug 2019 19:07:31
Fitness was an issue Stevie, but I think that our squad lacks the motivation to consistently give their all. Last season you could see the lack of desire once they had sent a message to Jose in Ole’s first few weeks. We had every opportunity to finish fourth, but the players looked like they didn’t care.

27 Aug 2019 19:14:15
Emotion and sentiment in football. Whatever next?

27 Aug 2019 19:30:54
This is a post that will not age well 😂.

27 Aug 2019 20:08:29
how can you motivate players that do not want to be here.

27 Aug 2019 22:45:28
Wazza I hope it is, I was surprised when I read it to be honest.

27 Aug 2019 22:49:35
The table I saw had slightly different numbers but the order was the same.

1 Liverpool 61 (GD 43)
2 Man city 61 (GD 41)
3 Man Utd 42
4Arsenal 40
5 Chelsea 39
7 Spurs 36
8 Leicester 35
9 Wolves 35

27 Aug 2019 22:59:18
I love that is what you gleaned from the table .

27 Aug 2019 19:04:26
We all have an opinion but the fact is in the 24 league games ole has been in charge only city and the scouse have more points .

27 Aug 2019 23:44:38
I know what you are saying jred. I'm just more worried about or current form and the trend we are to be following.

It would be nice to get the 3 points against Southampton, badly needed not just for the team but for ole too. I fear for him as I can see what's about to happen.

28 Aug 2019 07:34:05
This is worse than arsenal fans when they used to claim they had the most points over a year jan - dec.

28 Aug 2019 07:56:34
Interesting stats.
