  • My bad. Thought there were about 7 or 8 games passed when he took over. It's a different picture then for his first two seasons, was wrong about that.
  • I'm frankly a bit confused about how good he's tactically. He's definitely shown signs of being a good tactician before as we were doing very well against big teams, often being able to neutralize/dominate them. Even this year our first game...
  • Yeah shame on 'Ole supporters' who are happy with their team and manager doing well.
  • Yep I do get the feeling with some on here that being right on the internet is quite important to them. Not just our group of fans, all of them.
  • Well, let's say a manager would have taken over after 6 games this season when we were in 16th, and got us to finish 8th this year and 2nd/3rd next year, but then 10th the following two seasons. Would you consider that good because we were 16th...
  • No, it's been a very mediocre season in my eyes. I think the fact we are so far off the top is as much on terrible recruitment as it is on manager, or even more. I think everyone was just misled by us being top after Burnley game, despite the...
  • Yeah it makes as much sense as saying we went from 21st (after 8 out of 42 games) to 2nd back then and that earned Fergie's patience among fans for another two seasons, as if it's remotely plausible this could happen again in current era.
  • Yeah I somehow don't see the same people who appear here after every single defeat bragging about how they were always right being particularly thrilled when they aren't constantly being proven right.
  • Well if we want to use 8 games sample to final league position as progress then Ole has taken us from 16th to 2nd this season in a similar manner. Though I sense the team was never bad enough to be 16th in the first place. I feel Fergie's...
  • Yeah considering Ole gets tremendous amount of hate here for having us 2nd in the league and still in FA Cup/Europa League (with some decent performances too), I really can't imagine the reaction to us being mid-table and not competitive at all...
  • Not visiting this thread for the last year or so I forgot how pointless these debates are though, with virtually the same brigade appearing after every failure. The worst thing that could happen to you guys is if we actually started winning...
  • After 8 games. The team was clearly much stronger than 21st, as evidenced by previous seasons. And we didn't even break into top 10 after that 2nd placed finish.
  • Well we haven't finished 11th or lower yet. No, I think it's fair to assess a manager based on the progress a team has made under him and give them time if it appears like the team is heading in the right direction, even if it's not at an...
  • Yeah, his one bad season followed by another one which was even worse. You'd 100% want him out in the same position now.
  • Yeah, that wouldn't matter now to people who want Ole out anyway. I very much doubt that people would have more patience if he had for instance won Portuguese league and Europa League before. I am quite certain the reaction to Fergie's first few...
