I agree that winning the title after a long drought makes it all the sweeter.It's too hard to predict right now, especially after last season. People saying a lifetime or 20 years, bit over the top. Realistically though not likely in the next 5. Cycles happen, it's about how well the manager can get a tune out of players, implement a style, recruitment and the cycle of other teams. Even Leicester fluked a league with the right timing. This 90 point plus for position one and two will end, the teams below will get better. Klopp and Pep won't be hear forever.
It's just United's time for a drought unfortunately, we were spoiled but will eventually get back. Not take a league for granted again, as fans I think it's healthy, can't just have the good times, need to appreciate it after dark times. Let's see where Ten Haag takes us.
However i am not sure why is there so much faith in “football cycles”. It is possible that a club just stays in perpetual mediocrity. I am thinking of the past great clubs in Europe like Nottingham Forest and the Partizan Belgrade.
