Given our form and the desperate situation we find ourselves in, it’s quite bizarre that if Arsenal take points off Chelsea tonight, and we can see off Burnley tomorrow, we could be 2 or 3 points off 4th place by tomorrow night, the closest we will have been all year. It’s been a very odd league this year.

It's been a mad season.

{Ed047's Note - which is exactly what many a United fan ridiculed Arsenal fans for, for years, being a 4th place trophy team a million miles away from challenging.

With your squad you now sit in that exact position literally a million miles away from a challenge and like Arsenal fans did, trying to convince yourself that just two more players and you’ll be challenging when the reality is much much worse.

That’s my perspective looking from outside, fans attempting to talk players up into players they’re not, hoping young promising talent comes good and pretty much any excuse to shine a light on something to give you hope.

It’s like talking about Klopp taking over 4 years to get it right but that was with a plan and a manager light years ahead of Ollie.

Thanks ed was having a good day before that 😭.

My brain literally exploded when I read this Ed.

{Ed047's Note - sorry mate 🤯

Completely agree Ed finishing 4th in not success unless your the Glazer family and want to get your grubby little hands on the extra revenue it brings.

Perhaps the greatest trick they ever played was convincing us all finishing 4th is acceptable. When you set your aspirations so low what is the incentive to ever finish any higher?

For 7 seasons since SAF retired there has been no talk of a title challenge only a top 4 challenge.

The brutal truth is the Club is more than happy with mediocrity because 4th is considered success in their eyes.

We sack managers not when they fail to deliver the title or even a challenge but when they finish outside the top 4 that says it all really. What other top Club in Europe has aspirations so low?

{Ed047's Note - can’t argue with that DLIB

As terrible as we are, you guys are worse! Talk about stones and glass houses now 😂.

{Ed047's Note - that’s my point mate, I’m not speaking from strength, I’m not putting you down because we’re better than you, I’m just stating what’s so obvious.

But there you go, making yourself feel better. 🤣

21 Jan 2020 21:02:24
Ed you are spot on. Unfortunately the truth hurts 😂. But you are spitting facts and some people can’t take it. Too many fans just accepting or defending mediocrity.

{Ed047's Note - it does Park, it’s hurts me that we are in such a state ourselves and the worst of it is relying on people that don’t appear to want to make our respective clubs great again.

It’s painful to watch both of us mucking it up so spectacularly.

Can't remember who said it but it sums up our situation perfectly. In 2018 2nd placed united bought to finish 4th,4th placed Liverpool bought to finish 1st. sums up our owners/ board in a nutshell. Now they have us thinking the same🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️.

22 Jan 2020 01:36:55
Surely finishing 4th is important for the rebuild, get into the champions league etc, it isn’t where we want to be in the long term but it is where we are at now.

22 Jan 2020 04:55:03
I agree GDS2.

The atmosphere around chelsea is a lot better than round MUFC at moment.

They have UCL games and have been in 4th place most of the season. Still have new fledgling coach. Lots of young and slightly inconsistent players.

Not as big a gap as some would like to believe between us and them at the moment. Be nice if we had Kante in midfield though 🙏.

Ed you’re not meant to tell them now they might try to unseat ole and actually become a decent team!

I seen on our page a poster said he won’t park in safs parking space as that’s that's bosses parking space! If the alarm bells aren’t ringing there then you all must be deluded! Also Keane was an embarrassment on sky last night, won’t have a word a criticism said about his mate ole. Comparing him to Klopp and pep is laughable.

Another post summed it up perfectly that if you read the pre and post match build up you’d think we were playing Everton.

{Ed047's Note - the whole thing is just a little crazy mate, the world and his dog can see it but some just chose not too.

Lerchy that post was spot on, I tried reposting it here but eds wouldn't have any of it.
