Surely United can't go into next season with OGS in charge. What a mess.
I’m not sure why they signed him up when they did. No one was chasing him, there was no rush to give him the permanent role before EOS. Despite their poor finish, they’re still third on the Solksjaer table and the squad is likely to be very different next year, so maybe it’s not all gloom and doom.

Because they have no one with actual smarts in that club anymore. They may be third on the Solksjaer table.. but that's more the teams around them than United. They've been woeful since he's been in charge, but they still won. That Watford game was the indicator. They won but should have conceded 5 goals.

They haven’t been better as they’ve lost more games. They’ve just been more clinical in close matches. That’s all. You can’t split these two sides

But they have won more games. That’s what it’s really about.

Those 4 draws in quick succession against Leicester City, West Ham, Everton and Man U in the end killed us.

That all started in stoppage time in the first half of the Leicester game when Robertson gave away a needless free kick which led to Leicester’s equaliser.

Crazy season. Who could’ve imagined that 97 points wouldn’t be enough to win the title. Feel for Liverpool fans.

West Ham ended up scraping into the top 10. Pretty successful season after an awful, awful start. Found a couple of players too.

no more superlatives possible really. just absurdly talented football, orchestrated by a genius. so lucky to be able to watch us play to such a standard. trophies are a bonus, being on the other side of the world with no financial contribution to the club.

a relentless push for an unachievable perfection. privileged to be a fan.

Well done City. Have to say to win 14 games on the spin was some going and despite all the cash that’s still a massive effort.

Commiserations Liverpool, your time will surely come (hopefully in the league and not the CL!)
