Two questions:

1.) what are the actual expectations for the season? probably because we only ended the previous season last month and had a non existent pre season this wasnt discussed much.

We came third last season with 66 points, realistically we are not going to get near liverpool and city, so coming third with a higher points total is a realistic mark of improvement.

2.) Is Scott Mctominay actually a holding midfielder? To be honest i have never watched him and thought, yep he's a sitting midfielder. he's always struck me as a box to box midiflelder who is more useful attacking than defending. Not good enough positionally defensively and takes to many touches on the ball to be a dictating sort of midfielder.

Get the players in to mount a title challenge or close to top 2 in the final months of the season.
Get to the 1/ 4 finals or better of CL.
Get to Final of FA cup

Any less than this with our expenditure would be a failure.

Liverpool, City, Spurs, Arsenal, Everton, Chelsea have all improved their first X1.

I honestly don't think we have improved our first XI.
Discouraging window so far.

Liverpool beat us by 30 points and have added a top class midfielder and added strength in depth for their attack.

I just don't see a plan or ambition from the club.

Top 4 would be an achievement with this squad.

Scott is nowhere near good enough as a box to box, so I'm hoping he can learn the dm role as otherwise I don't see him getting much game time.

4.) 21 Sep 2020

Top 4 has to be the realistic expectation we can't achieve a title challenge anytime soon so becoming a consistent champions league club is a must.

if things stand as they are, then the expectation is to get 70 points - a little more than last season, but that is what this squad of players will get you in the PL. Yes, our form from the back end of last season was good, but it can't be sustained in a shorter campaign with champions league foot ball to boot. The quality of sides around us has also gone up quite a bit.
Hopefully win a cup along the way as well.

Expectations of this season could change dramatically depending on transfers.

Realistically it is an improvement on last season. 3rd, 66 points and 3 semifinals. I don't see us finishing above either Liverpool or City so third looks the highest we can realistically finish. However, an improvement on the 66 points total and maybe making it to at least one final would be an improvement.

However if we sign Sancho the expectations will unrealistically be elevated.

As for McTominay, he might with a little moulding become a holding midfielder. His best attributes are his stamina, running power and physicality. Which suit a more box to box role favouring a more defensive role. He does pop up with a few goals mind, so a little freedom wouldn't be a terrible idea with him. I think the thing that let's him down is his passing range which is a little limited. I think he could develop into a top player for us, he has the right mentality. It will come down to two factors. Firstly is what tactics are deployed as he doesn't really fit into a niche midfield role. Secondly, will be his ability to develop other areas of his game.

Plus 20 points on last season
Cl run to 1/ 4 final
Win a cup
No chance of any of these with our current manager imo.

i know ken he was such a failure last year in the cups, you can't expect ole with the same team to mount any challenge in any cups.

off with his head.

21 Sep 2020 14:42:33
No need to kill him bolger just fire him.
What cup did he win again?
We were not in the cl he didn't get us there so 1/ 4 in cl is a huge step up from a failed semi in the EL.
So yes nothing like last year big improvements reqired. I don't think he is capable.

Bolger semi final defeats are failure. Or should we book an open top bus to parade our failed semi final trophies.

Its absolutely comedy gold, nothing to do with footy really which is why most the eds and most the established posters are keeping out of it .
But a funny read non the less 😂.

Brilliant, right there is your comedy gold! 😂😂😂

We would improve our first eleven immediately just by dropping Pogba and playing VDB in his place.

Ed 100% its just ranting and stirring .

{Ed047's Note - where is the actual ranting and stirring jred, they are talking about their expectations, giving an opinion and answer to a genuine question.

You and Bolger then came in and stirred the pot. Because you didn’t like their answers. 🤷‍♂️

21 Sep 2020 17:16:04
ed47 😂😂of course because you agree with it its not a ranta, and of course your not stirring 😇😇😂😂
My personal favourite is just above, we will never finish in the top 4 with this manager 😂😂. We have just finished 3rd .
Honestly you managed to get rid of Deano yesterday you have more or less got rid of gds .
Who's next? I think you forget that some of these lads supported the site when it was struggling, donated for ed1 when he had issues.

{Ed047's Note - how did I manage to get rid of Deano and GDS, seriously jred you need to give your head a shake.

This is a banter site, if grown up human beings can’t cope with banter on a banter site, or people with a differing opinion about a club they all support, what on earth are they even doing here.

Do you want a separate page for everything is cool and groovy at United 🤷‍♂️

I don’t block or stop their posts, I don’t stop them having an opinion which is what you are trying to point out are rants to dig yourself out of talking yet another load of rubbish. 🤦‍♂️

It is just a banter site but some of these lads put there hands in their pocket to support it .
You give it out then hide behind i haven't done anything .
Your just a fan from another team on the wind up on the united page.

{Ed047's Note - seriously give it up you are now just becoming embarrassing trying to validate yourself because you contributed to the site.

This isn’t the only page on this site, you and a few others aren’t the only posters. 🤦‍♂️

Think we can all ‘cope with banter’, that’s usually from posters on the site though not from editors who as I’ve said before used to be professional and respectful.

When it’s one person maybe it’s them that can’t take it, when you’re pissing off regular posters every single day perhaps need to have a look at your way of editing the site and have a think. I thought it was just me at first and I was being an idiot but when I read it back I realised what was happening. It’s a shame.

I’d suggest if you want to banter join the site as a poster and get involved, I think people just expect more respect from the editors as that’s what we have always had. I’m not upset or particularly bothered, just makes the experience of the site a bit strange when editors are making you feel stupid.

{Ed047's Note - if you want a page full of yes men and Ed’s that agree with you no matter what they see in plain site then genuinely it’s clearly not for you.

People sadly don’t have the same opinion as you no matter how much you want to give it to them.

When you read it back did you take the blinkers off or keep them firmly strapped on.

I say what I see, I certainly have no concerns whether you like that or not.

I had a look on the arsenal site, ed47 your all about given arteta time waiting and seeing how the transfer window pans .
Then you come on here and just go fishing . You must have something better to do.

{Ed047's Note - because Arteta looks to have a plan and a system, I didn’t give Emery the time of day because he had neither much the same as OGS.

You really are getting desperately embarrassing now fella.

23.) 21 Sep 2020
21 Sep 2020 19:16:17
ed47 not really infact I think your embarrassing your self trying to defend arteta who managed arsenal to was it 8th last season? Why taking every opportunity to call out a manager who finished 3rd .
And why? Because "arteta looks to have a plan"
Arteta has very little managerial experience infact I would say its difficult to make an argument for one over the other in regards to him and ole.
But your such a biased arsenal fan you can't even see that's what your doing .
Your are trying to defend a manager who finished 8th over a manager who finished 3rd .
A lot of what you are saying about ole could be directed at arteta . And yet you are constantly calling other people blinkered 😂
Gds makes a good point imo as did Deano and Singh yesterday, infact Singh summed it up very well. No other ed looks to cause such a toxic atmosphere.

{Ed047's Note - OMG 🤣🤣🤣 I’m sure you’ll be in Aus any day now.

"This isn’t the only page on this site, you and a few others aren’t the only posters"

No its not, and no they aren't but that doesn't change the fact that they put there hands in their pockets . And that's your attitude and your thanks?

{Ed047's Note - jred you have got to stop embarrassing yourself, do you think I myself didn’t contribute.

I don’t want thanks for it or some kind of justification or believe it makes me more credible than anyone else.

If I’ve upset 4 people across this site because I think OGS isn’t good enough for you, that you should go all out to get Nagelsmann, that you should sell Pogba, that Upamecano should be a priority, that spending a fortune on Sancho is a waste, that Shaw is poor or Bruno is great then I that is a decision for you and them fella, I truly don’t care.

But don’t waste my time and yours trying to make your opinion and those others the only credible ones on this site or make lame excuses that I’m an Arsenal fan so I must want pain and misery on you.

21 Sep 2020 20:30:48
You’re totally missing the point if you think that’s why 4 people are ‘upset’, it’s more the lack of respect and calling people ‘blinkered’ who disagree with your biased opinion, basically if anyone is positive they are wrong and we are stupid for having an opinion but you continuously say we are out of order for not letting other people have an opinion.

God knows how many others have just not bothered because it’s pointless and you’re just made to feel stupid for disagreeing with someone who doesn’t even support the club but types in red.

Some of the things you say I totally agree with by the way, just the way you treat regular posters is unwarranted imo.

{Ed047's Note - GDS2, you are getting upset and calling me out for the exact things the 4 of you do.

You don’t like anyone having a negative opinion of anything to do with the club but that’s life and you have to accept it, that’s how a lot of United fans feel.

It’s also the manner in which you say it yourself, but you don’t see it, you want to point a finger at me because I don’t agree with your opinion.

If you are going to make comments, like you often make, loaded with sarcasm I’m going to repay you with the same and then you’ll moan about it.

I’ve never stopped you Deano or Singh posting unless It was like the time you told me to F Off, then obviously I’m going to give you some of the same.

So don’t try and paint yourselves as all innocent and hurt because you are not.

Ed01 has also put you straight a number of times because of your attitude.

The first half of last year was really bad. Then when we bought Bruno things changed and improved. We played better football (although not very good for me and clearly not proactive enough) after the "Bruno effect" and the excuse for first half of the season was that we hadnt Bruno from the start and Pogba was injured.
Now we have Bruno, Pogba back and another AM in VDB. So the expectations must be high . Personally i would like to see a clearly good team, dominating games who seems ready to compete the year after. I want a team as good as her players are and even better. that's what a manager has to do.

For the final time, I am not hurt or upset, I am explaining the issue, I appreciate you’re never going to change and have made your mind up that everyone else is wrong about you and you aren’t doing anything wrong, not much anyone can do if that’s the case.

Ed001 put me straight a couple of times about 4 years ago, I get on with and appreciate Ed001 and everything he does for the site, like jred said, that’s why we put money in to save it, we just expect a bit of respect. There is enough negativity and people arguing on twitter and other social media, people come on here to chat to like minded united fans and have banter.

I fully understand how United fans feel, I feel the same as a lot of them, an Arsenal fan coming on here telling us how rubbish we are adds nothing imo. Just my opinion, which I’m allowed as you keep saying.

{Ed047's Note - There are so many things wrong at United but you can’t hack that and as you have done from day one, endeavoured to make out that anyone with that opinion is wrong, we all know it, you know it.

You get on with the select few who have the same opinion as you, the way you’ve spoken to posters was what earned you being chewed out by Ed01 so please don’t paint this poor innocent me crap.

I wasn’t the child that told you to F Off either, was I. All because you didn’t like a dose of what you hand out yourself.

There's something seriously wrong when one of the most optimistic, civil posters on here, is deemed to have an attitude problem. You're obviously not in the cool gang, GDS.
