Who’s said it was a miraculous achievement? Don’t think anyone has. Listen buddy old pal I think just stop hating on Utd / Ole it’s becoming a real problem for you and I don’t want it affecting your personal life. He seems a nice enough bloke and you have this weird obsession with him - it’s really starting to creep me out. It’s not healthy for you and to be honest Ealing you are better than that. 

I don't think he does, really. About as morally upstanding as the Catholic church.

Oh they'll walk it eventually IMO. Their defence is ridiculous now. After we exposed them they have really knuckled down. Plus they've got the likes of Aguero to come back. Their games in hand are against Brighton and Villa, both at home.

Manchester City get wrongly ignored, particularly on here in my opinion because of that game against us. That game against us was a bit of a freak IMO and there is no way we'd put 5 past them with their current side. That's not to have a pop at us, more that they have sorted their own issues out. The Ruben Dias signing is a lowkey contender for signing of the season so far. They have let in 10 goals in 24 games in all competitions since that game. That's an outstanding record. They aren't quite the attacking force of a couple of seasons ago but they're very good again.

 

I'll give Solskjaer credit if they win the league but I think the fact it's being hyped up as some achievement already is a sign of how successfully he's managed to lower expectations. Can't play the biggest club in the world game and then get excited in January.

Very hard next 9 games for us in the league as well. 18 points from that lot and we are dancing.

You are dead right 18 points from that lot and zero serious injuries would be a wonderful lot of results. Anything more than 18 would mean going into the last quarter with hopes of better than a top four finish. I don't remember our last few fixtures as being wonderful either. If we do that BR will jump in my estimation from "very good" to potentially a great manager. 

 

We've got a good record of pulling off miracles in recent years so i live in hope, certainly of top four but it is difficult.

Yeah I think we have a more favourable run of games on paper from match 27 - 34 I think off the top of my head. We could be 13 clear going in to those last run of horror games 🤪

A lot of Wolves fans turning on Nuno. They have WBA and Chorley coming up in the next 2 games. Draw/lose both of them and the fanbase will be in proper meltdown. 

Only the fickle pricks that have an inflated sense of entitlement, that always been there in our fan base.

I think anything above 13 is positive, that's 4 wins and a draw which I feel is fair to expect from the team given the performances they've put in so far this season.

As I was writing it I knew some smart arse would pipe up with with this kind of nonsense. If it was that easy why have they been totally crap for the last however long, and why are Chelsea currently in mid table. Whether they should be there or not Ole has taken a ridiculous amount of flack rightly or wrongly, but is finally getting a very solid tune out of the players there. 

If you think that just because you have the highest wage bill you should be top automatically you haven’t been watching much football over the last, well, forever. 

"The race is not always to the swift, nor the fight to the strong. but that is the way to bet." I'm not a Man.U fan but OGS is a reasonable guy as football managers go, but I don't think he's a very good manager or the swift ,strong,and rich United would remain top. Compared with Klopp and Pep, OGS is a boy, but growing. Ferguson was of course a formidable mansger, maybe the best ever, altho I did n't go much on him as a man. He also was far from perfect, and most seem to think he left Utd. with little left in the locker, from which they have not yet  recovered. Despite all this I remember getting a carpet burn as I dived across the carpet when I think OGS got them a European cup with a late goal in his super sub days , if I've remembered correctly.

Man city and Spurs win tonight and we’re  fifth. Villa need to lose or draw one of their games in hand else they’ll be above us too.

 

Villa are 6 points behind us with 2 games in hand.

They won't be ahead on points which is important.

Not aimed to be a dig at Mahrez but has has he improved much as a footballer since leaving us? He was obviously brilliant for us but I wouldn't say he's moved up another level at Man City 

He was in his prime when he left us so I wouldn't have expected him to.

Yeah that was half my point although I thought the better players around him might have brought out an even higher level from me. Seems exactly the same player to me
