    My greatest fears are being realised.
    After a good start to the season, we were top of the table and things were starting to look rosy again. Now we are languishing in 5th place and it looks like it will only get worse after today’s games.
    Spending so little in the summer means we are now behind such teams as Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Watford for goodness sake!
    With only 37 games left in the season, I’m looking forward to big changes once it’s all over.
    Sell Pogba, sack Jose and get a new board in.

    We need a goal scorer, our top scorer only has 1 goal.

    We're in serious trouble, we've conceded more than Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Watford combined.

    We’ve only scored one goal from open play this season and that was Luke Shaw! His 1st goal ever!

    By the end of the day we could be behind City and Liverpool as well.

    It's just not acceptable for a club the size of united.

    We are so shit. Especially on the road. Not picking up at least 1 point away from home all season is laughably bad.

    You laugh but there is a fair chance we don't get back in the top 4 for the rest of the season. There are at least 4 teams playing better than us.

    If the season could finish now, would you take it considering that we are ahead of Liverpool and City?

    It has been one game! Listen I’m not a massive fan of Jose whatsoever but threads like this are absolutely pathetic at this time of the season. The early premier league always throws up a few anomalies at the start, I certainly don’t expect Crystal Palace to be top four contenders this year! People talk about patience but this is even worse, I swear some of the caf need sectioning so us sensible posters have some relief. Back to the general I go...

    I say we start with sacking the manager. Then sell all our current players, and start afresh.

    Most people here don't want older players. So let's just play the under 18 team. That way they can play for the next 10-15 years, and we won't have to buy anyone. Spend all the transfer budget on hiring Pep and Klopp.

    After winning the PL and the CL for the next 3-4 years, I say we get a military force of our own, and start conquering nations .Utter world domination.

    When Luke Shaw has scored more then Lukaku, Sanchez, Martial, Rashford, Lingard & Mata combined you know it’s going to be a long disappointing season

    Also we should get rid of Matic. He has been injured the whole season ffs! Stealing a living here.

    After the first Saturday of last season, we had zero points. Progress has been made.

    Luke Shaw is our topscorer. Let that sink in.

    We're looking really dodgey at the back. Every single game we've conceded in the 90th minute. It's only a matter of time before one of those goals impacts our results.

    Not far from reality considering we're only 3 points away from first relegation spot.

    Martial was nowhere to be seen throughout the 90 minutes. Matic too anonymous.

    It's a proper worry
