After 11 games we were a point worse off in oles last season and if memory serves me right we had no where near the levels of injuries we've had this season. Ole also didn't have the same player issues eg sancho and antony. Also ole didn't have a takeover hanging over the club.Ten Hag's best decision was spending 70m on Casemiro, without him there'd be no European football this season
And now that Casemiro's showing his age, we're seeing Ten Hag's real level, despite 400m spent the team is performing worse than under Ole
Ole failed because he wasn't good enough, ETH since he's been at united has only experienced turbulence throughout the club.
Maybe the best time to properly judge ETH is when we have a few less injuries, the SJR investment and restructuring of the club and the likes of sancho and any other rotten personalities kicked out.
There's a lot to be unhappy with in how we're playing, I agree with that point, but there's context that needs to be taken into consideration. I do believe we will improve as the season progresses but I think unless we go through a Chelsea like disaster ETH should be given this season and see how he starts next season when the club should be in a settled state
