So the reference point for improvement is Mourinho's lowest point? if so then yes we have improved, it would've been hard not to when players are feed up with the manager and had lowered their guns. But against Mourinho's highest point we havent improved, no metric shows that, less points, less goal difference, no titles. We were closer to the title back in 2018 than what we are today, thats factual.It is, it's an objectively untrue statement. Solskjaer took over us in 6th place, 11 points off top 4, last year we finished the season in second place and reached a European final. There's been undeniable, objective, improvement since he took over. You can argue about it until you're blue in the face but I don't think there's a single metric that hasn't improved since he took over, compared to what it was when Mourinho was sacked. And this is from someone who actually thinks he needs to go.
What is subjective is when we played our best football. I happen to think we've played loads of good football sporadically over the last couple of years, with our best being played most consistently last year.
