We’ve improved massively to get to where we are now, I still think we can get a lot better but fair play to Ole and his staff. It’s the first time we’ve looked like Manchester United since Fergie retired.

This is what happens when you close the 'Ole out' thread. Imagine what would happen if we banned the 'Ole out crowd'! :D

What a huge win this is. We might not win the title but the character shown by the players today was magnificent. This is progress for me.
Well done Ole, credit where credit is due. He has been abused, trolled and here we are under him.

Winning like that is something we've not seen nearly enough the last few years. We're rightfully top of the league, now we need to stay at it and see what happens.

Nice to be up there and shows we were right to stick by Ole.
Do I think we’ll win the league? No. City’s next 6 games before they play Liverpool:
Brighton, Palace, Villa, Burnley, Sheffield United and West Brom before they face anyone of note.

It feels amazing, might be short lived, but this feels fab.

Think about where we came from. We were down in 15th after a loss to Arsenal, it was a long way back but we bit by bit climbed the table to reach the summit. Challenge is to stay here and make a title bid.

It’s nice to be in 1st at the halfway mark of a race, but there’s still a long way to go. I’m weary that a bad loss or a critical injury to a key player could wobble that confidence we now have.

Why is it so quiet in here? Isn't it usually rampant with ole out and pe teacher comments? Probably crying into their de Bruyne bed sheets

It did feel a bit like old times - away at some horrible small ground, bad luck but still chipping away to get the three points to go top.

Cavani will be vital IMO. If he stays fit and we rest him from cup games, we might have a fighting chance.

It's been a long 7 1/2 years so we might as well enjoy the moment.
If it becomes more we'll be delighted. But just hitting top is superb for now.

Fantastic position to be in considering the start of the season. Big win. Absolute manky game but grinding out wins like that and Wolves/Villa are the ones that win titles.

It’s been a long hard road to this...credit to Ole for getting this team where it is, all about staying there now...just need a few more players to be better. And to think we had Van Gaal and Jose and they couldn’t get us there. Great stuff lads

People should note that this isn't the usual Jan and it's a little premature to draw comparisons of yesteryear being top at this stage.

We've played 17 games, usually the league is at 22 by now, that's a month worth so it's like being top before Christmas. Would be great to not fall away in 5-6 games time.

We were top under LVG before Christmas, pretty sure we've been top under Jose before Christmas.

This is better than the “We’re 3rd” thread haha!

We’re top and we deserve it.

Maguire, Pogba, Bruno and Rashford key to our success this season.

With Ole as the manager. Suck on that, haters. I honestly think we have what it takes to win it. But if that is going to happen, Pogba needs to continue being fit and deliver performances like he has the last few games. If he can, and on top of that the brilliant Bailly avoids injuries, i really do believe we have a good chance of winning it.
