I would disagree with most of that. Bringing in a short-termism manager who spends like there's no tomorrow, like Mr. Mourinho is the reason we're in such a huge mess. Yes he finished second, but his kamikaze panic buy spending has saddled the club with Fiat Uno's that were bought for Ferrari prices - Lindelof, Fred, Alexis Sanchez, Matic etc. That's close to 200 million quid on that 4, for players that are either midtable, or on the sharp downward trajectory.I can see that you still believe in our board, that they will spend money in January. I can assure you that won't be happening.
We may get a player on loan, but not a player who can completely change our current trajectory.
I do feel sorry for fans who genuinely believe that we will improve our squad and our results.
I am 45 years old and I have seen us when we were beating EVERYBODY! Back in the mid-90s, in the EPL, we were dominant. In 1998 we were terrific. in 1999, even better. Then we ushered the era of Ronaldo and Rooney.
To see fans in 2019 have such low expectations that a manager can have us in 9th place and be accepting of this, is very disappointing.
Fans should be demanding that we compete for a top 4 position every season and with a decent spend, finish top 3.
If Ole stays, I can see us finishing in 7th place. Don't forget that 2 years ago we finished 2nd and many fans were unhappy with this.
Fergie success came about from 6 long painful years of building. Ole may not be the man, but sometimes you can get lucky with a loan deal in January who can make the difference, Hendrick Larsson being one of Fergies most famous ones.
