Part of that is because much of the noise (at least on here) is from a vocal minority who think we should be winning every game by 3-0+, challenging for the CL immediately, players never make mistakes, etc... Also people that ignore we had no preseason and started with an unfair disadvantage, I could go on...When my mate, who is a Liverpool fan, was admitting how well he's done, it boggles the mind when some of our own fans don't. He called him the PE Teacher and all that good stuff too.
It's actually quite ridiculous how much things are better than under any of the managers since Fergie. Yes, we need to win something, but we're certainly heading in the right direction.
He's done a great job. We could feasably finish the season 5 or 6 points off the pace, which is good going considering what he started with. If we begin the next season well, and manage to get a good run together, the percieved gap between us and some other teams is nothing like the chasm it appeared at one point. A good window and we're in a position to challenge properly. The patience will have been worth it.
