Times we drew after leading at half time (Post Fergie):

13/14 - Southampton 1-1 (RVP 26' - Lallana 89')
14/15 - Arsenal 1-1 (Herrera 30' - Blackett OG 82')
15/16 - n/a
16/17 - Swansea 1-1 (Rooney 45+3' pen - Sigurdsson 79')
17/18 - n/a
18/19 - Wolves 1-1 (Fred 18' - Moutinho 53')

That's 4 times since Fergie, so 12 times under Fergie. Fergie was a God.

7 in total, 2 at home (Liverpool and Palace, both 0-0). Beyond terrible.

Amazed people only just found about this. We discuss it nearly every season on here. I'm always shifting uncomfortably at OT when we have a slow start to the second half and were leading at HT. I'd hate to see this record go because it is bananas.

A year or two ago I showed the records of the other big teams and how they only go back a few seasons. I've updated it below. Spurs and City have both had such losses in the last 18 months.

Some initial research at soccerstats.com suggests there’s less than 10 games a season where the home side leads at HT and loses at FT. Surprising how low it is.

Spurs lost 1-3 to Wolves at home in 18/19 when 1-0 at HT.
City lost 2-3 to us at home in 17/18 when 2-0 at HT!

Chelsea lost 3-5 to Arsenal in 11/12 when 2-1 at HT.
Arsenal lost 2-3 to Spurs in 10/11 when 2-0 at HT.
Liverpool lost 1-2 to Arsenal in 09/10 when 1-0 at HT.

We’ve not lost at home leading at HT in the league since 1983/14! What a fecking outlier that is! I wasn’t sure how impressive that stat was until now!

It's true, whenever commentator mentioned some record (I'm watching Sport Klub from Balkans), the record was lost in the same game. It started to happen massively during Moyes era, by the time LvG took the club, I thought no record existed anymore. Boy, how I was wrong :lol:

"No 6 bus to Old Trafford 6p, Admission to re
If I am not mistaken - the last time we lost at Old Trafford after taking the lead was Crystal Palace in 1989. Beardsmore gave us the lead early on and then we missed a huge amount of chances (Nigel Martyn made his debut and was outstanding). Bright equalized before half-time and Palace got the Winner in the 2nd half.

Lots of cries for Fergie Out during that game
We took the lead v Liverpool in 2009 but lost 4:1.
