I can't remember feeling as low about a new season as this in my lifetime, honestly.
In the 80's maybe but then I was just a kid, I didn't really get football as much as I thought I did. You're always positive as a kid as well aren't you.
I have absolutely no interest in watching United this season, that's how bad it has become. If I was still in Europe I would, but over here, bollocks to staying up till 3 in the morning, or getting up at 4 or 5 to watch the utter shite that is paraded about. I have better things to be doing than subjecting myself to that, like sleeping.
It has nothing at all to do with being any kind of a glory supporter either, if we were going through a hard patch but still trying to play good football, I'd stay/get up to watch the games. It's the football. I got into the game because of the love of watching and playing it. There is no love in watching this. None. Even he seems utterly bored by the football we play, and he's the one forcing it on us!
Can you imagine the team Ferguson could have put out if he'd had the funds (or the equivalent of) when he was in charge? You think he would have signed players based purely on how tall they are and how hard they are prepared to work? We'd have had Zidane. Maldini. Batitstuta. Raul. Ronaldo (Brazilian). But how good at defending corners are they, that's the important thing.
Fucking over it.
Little did daz know ...
We win together, lose together. We celebrate triumph and endure defeat together. Losses are softened and victories sweetened because we do them together. One team. One religion. One love.
Us finishing in the top 4 (or better) this season reminds me of the days when I was in school and not fully prepared for an exam. I remember telling myself "if the professor asks us about subjects a,b,c and avoids challenging us with subjects x,y,z, I'll ace the test."
If Rashford and Martial score more than 20 goals, and if Pogba decides to play well at least 80% of the time, and if our defense stays fit and develops good chemistry out of thin air (because, why the heck would you just pay the 80mil in June and have Maguire for pre-season?), and if DDG returns to his 2014-2018 form, and if some of our youngsters have cracking seasons, we'll do well. I'm not a gambling man, I am not going to put my money on so many ifs. The fact that we're in this position is just unbelievable.
I think 4th. I am encouraged by our defence for the first time in 6 years. So many question marks around the rest of our team, but we wont ship as many goals. I feel more comfortable defending set pieces already.
Chelsea are shit. No attack and key injuries to worry about. Rookie manager. It's the same as us. Could literally go one of 2 ways.
Arsenal have a fantastic attack but a defence similar to ours from last year. Luiz does not help them as much as folk think. Losing Ramsey is gonna be big for them.
Spurs have made 2 great midfield signings. If they had bought Dybala I would say they would be pushing the top 2 very closely. Son is my dark horse for POTY.
We won't finish top 4. We don't have a top 4 midfield. If Pogba gets injured or downs tools again, we barely have a top 10 midfield. Fucking Watford have a better midfield than us. If Martial and Rashford step up, we do have a top 4 attack, if they don't step up, we'll be lucky to get into the European places. I've never gone into a season with such low expectations.

cjjagzmoni: Pogba is a good lad minus the showboating..I think at Juventus he had Older players like Pirlo,Chiellini,Marchisio,Bonucci who shout and screams at him so he was more serious at Juve ,We dont have those type of leaders at United to caution him.

theedge: Just discovered this forum. I live in Canada so don't get to many games, but I get to watch all the games live. Last 2 games attended in person: Europa League Final in Stockholm 2017, FA Cup Final 2016. Won the last 11 I've been to. I need to go more often
