    Genuinely think it's a possibility

    Surely our league form since the PSG game would put us in the bottom 3? Can anyone confirm or deny this

    What do you think?

    We'll probably end up around 8th or 9th

    If we're in the bottom half of the table by the new year we'll sack Ole, bring in one of the rotating mercenary managers, stabilise ourselves, give him a full season, sack him when it inevitably turns to shit and start the process all over again.

    This is, in all honesty, the by far most likely scenario

    No but you're going to struggle to get past 50 points imo and that's borderline to finish in top half.

    Could also be a higher than usual points total to stay up this year given the amount the bottom teams are already picking up.

    Everton in bottom 3 and they're just under a point a game.

    Of course this will all change when you sack the present manager as we saw last season when you were on a dismal run and then won 10 straight.

    Nope but if Liverpool beat us in 2 weeks we could go into relegation places

    If we carry on this form then we'll be in the thick of it.

    250 to 1. Anyone who genuinely thinks we could can make a lot of money. Post slip otherwise it's all talk. Easy way to settle these stupid debates

    Yes, look at our form at the back end of last season, it was relegation form then and its relegation form at the start of this season.

    We have a manager that can only do well in the bloody Norwegian league, he struggled badly with Cardiff in the championship for God sake.

    People dismiss this is ridiculous but we are an absolute shambles.

    If we keep Ole in charge then yes, we could get relegated, we have no divine right to be in the PL.
    We’ve been crap since March, he has no idea how to get us out of this situation.
    He’s talking about “defense, attack, scoring goals”, he’s a glorified “football manager” manager, he has no idea what he is doing.

    Liverpool win the league, we get relegated in the same season, good one.

    I mean we've said it for years, most of our players can't even get in most of the top 6 teams. We are a midtable team now bar a few players. It's only right where we are now.

    Oh yeh, let's add in a manager who didn't even do well for Cardiff in the mix.

    Possibly. It's a shambles though. We need a proper manager with new ideas...the restructuring can come later.

    If Ole stays then who knows how long we’ll be stuck in bottom half.

    Yep, I’ve held off from commenting in these but it’s absolutely looking like we’ll be in the bottom half of the table so it’s not impossible just because we’re Manchester United.

    If leicester can win the league, this team can get relegated. And I'm not even joking

    It's highly unlikely that we'll get relegated, despite putting in performances that a relegation-bound team would be embarrassed by.

    We certainly have the manager to make this happen so why not.

    Probably not because our defence is not that bad. But a team that can’t score is always in danger.

    Definitely.

    How can people write this off? Look at our form since Ole got the job....

    I don't see why not? We look beyond hopeless. I might put a bit of money on it.

    We'll end up in a similar league position to Chelsea before Mourinho got sacked. What was that, around 16th?

    If we keep Ole 100% it can happen. We'll lose against Liverpool next game and if Everton beats West Ham we're in relegation zone after 9 games but keep telling yourselves it can't happen.

    We'll probably sack Ole at some point, hire the first available manager, bring in a few OKish players in the winter and finish somewhere between 6th and 13th.

    Look at all the other fixtures, over the next three or four weekends, after the international break.
    The other bottom half clubs will pick off points off each other, as we slip back again.
    We loose to the dippers and can’t get 3 points away at Norwich, we’re in a relegation scrap.
    No avoiding it now.
    No proper forwards, no shots on goal in too many games...we can’t score goals and there’s nobody to come in, other than Martial, to try and rectify the situation.
    This is really dire.

    Been saying it for weeks. We will go into the bottom 3 and with these players we won't recover. It's over for us.

    United have been breaking records for the wrong reasons. If Ole stays it's plausible but no we won't get relegated however we will be in the very bottom half.

    No. No matter how bad we are as a team, we do have individuals who will win us the odd game.
