Maybe try to use your critical thinking instead of your feelings? Just a thought.How is it literally impossible? Our front six don’t score goals or create anything. Our away form is atrocious. Our overall form under Solskjaer since he was made a permanent manager is relegation form. We haven’t been able to beat Cardiff, Huddersfield, Southampton, Palace, Newcastle in recent months.
Fans talk about our performance today like it was positive but we created two chances today. The Rashford goal and a shot from Fred in the second half.
There is no such thing as too good to go down. I feel like 50% of the CAF would still want Ole in the job even if we got relegated.
They have the worst defense in the league on bar with Watford with 21 goals conceded. 19th in the table and lost 6 matches already. Villa put 5 past them on their own pitch.They have a good squad, beated City, Pukki a top striker
Not being funny.. But Wesley would not get a shirt number here and Scott McTomminay would probably be Villa's vice captain. Get real with your comparisons. I know we are doing crap but don't underestimate the quality of some of our players because of this. Neil Taylor has been Villa's worst player for 12 months, most goals come from his side. To say he is better than Luke Shaw is comedy.Everything can happen
If I have to do comparison with other teams... Villa have a better squad, Douglas Luiz, McGinn, Hourihane are better than what we have
we don’t have players like Grealish or Wesley
Neil Taylor is better than Young or Shaw
Smith is better than Ole
I can continue...
The fact is that squad score few goals and most players are mediocre
0-0 it is then.They have the worst defense in the league on bar with Watford with 21 goals conceded. 19th in the table and lost 6 matches already. Villa put 5 past them on their own pitch.
The City game looks like a fluke actually. By all means we should win this, but I said the same about Newcastle.
Sure, if you just want to just state things without context. For what it’s worth, I don’t think it’s impossible, but that’s about as far as I can go without feeling like an idiot upon myself.Anyone using critical thinking would realise we are deep shit. The rest of my post is complete fact.
all that yesterday showed is that United can play well when they set-up to hold fort against teams who attack them, hopefully nicking one on the break. Which is an option in about 6 games this season.We showed yesterday we can play alot better than what we have been. There's some serious mentality issues if we can only get up for the biggest game of the season. We won't score many this season as we don't have a prolific striker. If we defend as we did yesterday we should be able to stop conceding the stupid goals we have for the majority of the season. If we can keep players fit we are capable of 6th to 8th.
After tonight's (Arsenal/Sheffield) match I am more convinced than ever that the current top 4 will be the final top 4: City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Leicester. Man Utd. will finish probably mid-table and possibly lower because of the demands of this years Europa League on the young squad. This squad issue is not helped by the weakness in the medical team that seems to extend to more than 'bad luck'. Ole will be manager as long as it is mathematically possible to get a Champions league spot next season and if Utd go deep into the EL cup that could be most of the season. However once that is not the case he will be sacked - I am certain of it - it is a minimum target and on all the contracts for any modern Utd. manager and any talk about him staying long-term to build things up over several transfer windows is just fake news.Hard to see us displacing Chelsea or Leicester out of top four. They have better squads and better managers.
But before that we'd have to deal the North London clubs as well.
I don't think we'll be relegated, but we're not going to make EL, either.
Cept smaller teams wont be that cocky to press us. They'll let us have the balls and forced mistakes on our partWe showed yesterday we can play alot better than what we have been.

See his reaction? He was made captain under Mourinho. Seen anything good?Captaincy is 1 of main priorities. At the moment I don't know who it is ? Give the armband to Pogba and see his reaction. If positive,start building a real team around a real leader, the guy is 1 of the best players worlwide !
I so agree with this, some fans are too petty, mysel included at times. If he was allowed to play in the same position he could have been a giant in the team. Same goes for Herrera.I know this is not a popular opinion. But past seasons, Fellaini got us out of a lot of trouble. We miss his power in the midfield and scoring him at important moments. I genuinly think his period at United was excellent, but people like to mock him because of his technique. Technique can help, but football is a lot more than that. And the way he controlled the ball with his chest, was just insanely good. He was a very underrated player and remained the Moyes scapegoat for way too long.
Exactly. Forum is full of dopes. This season has shown that.Just fans who refused to acknowledge the facts. A thin squad facing injuries and being unlucky with penalties(I consider penalties scoring/missing to involve some luck)
Like i said yesterday on another thread, United are only heading up with players returning from injury.
One game later we are 7th. Do you still think we will finish 15th?This year I don’t think we will go down, I predict a 15-17th place
Next year I think is definitely the year we can go down for real
And it would be the natural consequence of 7 years of wretched decisions by amateurish management
Surely the worst in the game so far
