It just sounds bitter bitching and moaning today. We've got third place which is fantastic. We're far from perfect but hopefully Ole can sign the players we need and take us forward. I'm still not convinced by him but he certainly deserves a chance.
This as well. It’s a negative for the forum to have this thread bumped after each and every game, same goes for posters both sides of the argument.Lock this thread now please. This is a results business and this guy has finished 3rd despite a number of obstacles. All the doubters can keep it quiet until next season
Exactly.Lock the thread. Look how far we have come since last January. Glazers need to back him now. He's a special manager. He's got the results and look at the bond now in the squad. So many people base their opinions off one bad pass or one bad match. Time to think big picture.
Not sure there is much there. Smalling, Lingard and Pereira are the only ones who can bring 10+millions. 2-3 top quality signings are definitely needed though, and one of those needs to be Sancho.There is still major questions on Ole. The performance in the last few games where we needed to win was poor. But he has earned another season and atleast 3 major signings. Sancho, a CB and a CM. If he's backed properly in the summer, next season he needs to be judged properly. We can't have another season where we go through a period of good performances followed by a period of poor ones. There has to be consistency. I don't expect us to win the league next season but we have to be challenging. A front three of Sancho, Martial, Rashford with Greenword off the bench would be argubly the best in the league.
But that all depends if the Glazers are willing to spend. A budget of 150 mil + money from sales would be enough to get us the players we need to contend
I trust that none of you who rant and rave here will take part in the celebration when we win? Such impossibly rampant negativity. Talk about being toxic.
There is also Sanchez who might get you around 10 mil. And Jones maybe worth 10 mil as well. Let say the budget is 150. Sancho will cost around 80. If you can add 30 - 40 mil in sales you might be able to get two or three more quality players in addition to Sancho as opposed to one.Not sure there is much there.

At least one did get the ban the other day. The others have not been quite as bad, even if I disagree with the lot of em.Normally I wouldn't say this, and obviously this won't happen, but serious considerations need to be given for handing out forum bans to some of the irrationally toxic posters this forum has had to deal with over the last several months. They are a disgrace and don't deserve to call themselves fans of this club. Wouldn't be surprised if some of them are trolling and faking their support.
We probably should sack him if we want to win the league. This is his ceiling. Thing is, we might want to be happy to reach that ceiling for a while. He’s given us something more important: a team of players worth supporting for the first time since Sir Alex retired.
Probably a few, but he was the manager from the beginning of the season. We have been quite good though since we signed Bruno.Ole done really well in fairness.
How many points off 3rd were you after drawing 0-0 with Wolves on 1st Feb? Meltdown from Leicester but tbh I'd have backed Wolves to finish above you at that point and you've finished about 10 points clear of them.
Win the europa and that's probably your best season post SAF with an exciting young team developing.
It should do. There are days to analyse and there are days to celebrate. Guess which one this is?Oh believe me I am. Very happy actually. I'm just unsure about our manager but that doesn't change that.
Ole did an amazing job, both results-wise, as well as quality of squad-wise, so far. With the budget he had - both are nearly perfect.Wanted to bump some of those "will we get relegated threads" but they've been locked.
You know who you are lads. Hold your hands up.
