    Not in the premier league though, so assuming that is in all competitions it helps playing in the Europa League instead of a Champions league (and also getting further in the domestic cups, fair enough!)

    In the league 1 less goal but Liverpool's front 3 have played 2248 more minutes.

    We just want to see what it was like to be Liverpool fans for the past 30 years. :wub:

    Except without the belief that next year is going to be our year.

    OGS record overall is still padded now by that initial run when Utd could do no wrong.


    Interesting site here where you can look at form over a few options - ignoring the promoted teams (who I assume form is for the tale end of Championship) Utd are 4th for last 25 games (which covers the end of his good start), over 20 they slip to 8th (again ignoring the promo'd teams) and over 15 things start to look very grim.



    Obviously he's on a terrible run and will almost definitely, ultimately not be the man for the job but you seem to use xg (and by extension expected points) when it fits the narrative (the padded run) but ignore them for the bad run until the end of the season (games 9, points 8, expected points 14.14) and the current form (games 7, points 9, expected points 14.4),  and the other problem I find is that its easy to look at the stats in isolation which misses that the bad run coincided with a a lot of injuries which has continued into this season, but ultimately I'm not sure a new manager is going to do much better, the midfield when Pogba isn't playing or the 6-7/10 times he's having a bad day is probably the worst in the top half of the league and we have an inconsistent forward line.  I'm resigned to the fact that Utd are done as a top club while the Glazers are in charge, My Dad's been a Utd Supporter since the 50's so he's always reminded me what it was like when we were truly shit and that success isn't guaranteed.

    i’m referring to the initial 10-12 match run that got him the job, i believe it fell off a cliff a bit after than and his record now for total games compared the equivalent number at the end of Jose’s rule are very similar (albeit with less sourness and drama)

    Even though he did overachieve (in comparison to xG), he still had the 3rd highest expected point total for that 12 games which would have, I'd imagine still got him the job and if extrapolated over a season would have been enough for a Champions league spot.  While I don't think he's the right man for the job, as shit as Utd have been so far this season (and we have been shit), we have also been really unlucky, which expected points would seem to support.  Interestingly (possibly only to me) Mourinho's last 28 games as manager got 51 points compared to OGS's 49, but Mourinho's expected points were 39.44 compared to OGS's 52.34.  Also OGS somehow still has the 3rd highest points total since he took over in the league.

    OGS record at the start of Utd was obviously a bit of a blip to anybody looking below the surface, much like Arsenal's long unbeaten run under Emery it was way at odds with the stats and Utd were outscoring their xG and conceding less than the chances they were giving up.



    I don't think this is correct, Utd last season since OGS took over had the 3rd highest actual points (40) and the 3rd highest expected points (37.94) in the league, xG was 40.4 and actual goals 36, xA was 25.78 actual was 25.

  8. I'm partly glad that the Solskjaer honeymoon period is over, hopefully the club is under no illusion how far we are from being regular top four contenders let alone challenging for the league or beyond.  Not that I trust the club with recruitment, I'm hoping the lack of any news about a DOF is due to the club taking its time to find the right man rather than abandoning the idea.  It's telling that Barca had five players on the bench better that what we have in the first team.

    What's that got to do with an entitled Arsenal fan going on about how certain teams don't deserve to be in the top division because they aren't elite enough, before his team then go and lose against a team who before they played were joint bottom with 9 points?



    He's obviously grown tired off being made to look like a fool by Liverpool fans and instead has moved on to a team Tottenham are currently better than, United may be shit since Ferguson retired but we've still managed to win more since then than Tottenham have in the last 20+ years.

    "Disappointed in the sense that I didn't love it as much as almost everyone else has or as much as I thought I would. I still  played it for over 70 hours and really enjoyed traversing the world and the shrines but there was just something that stopped me from really loving it, partly it was the weapon breaking system which I found annoying (would have much preferred a dark souls style system).

    They are in a different world to Arsenal and it makes me sick that they buy ready made world class players who have that winning mentality - like we used to do back in the day.  

    This isn't really true though, can't think of anyone Wenger signed who at the time was world class.  In fact the only players who really fit the "world class" description are Ozil and Sanchez

    Fergie left when he knew his team were in dire need of a rebuild.  He left on a high and it was always going to be impossible to follow in his footsteps.    

    I'd be more inclined to believe Fergies reason for leaving being his wife's sister dying and the team was only in dire need of a rebuild because he left. I have no doubt he would have at least one more title if he would have stayed.  The problem was he didn't give the club enough time to find a suitable replacement (and David Gill also leaving), the same problem Arsenal will face if Wenger leaves this summer.

  17. If he plays, which is likely with the Euros coming up, he could again be the difference between making the champions league or not, which is worth more than the money Real were offering. We've also just spent 36 million on an inexperienced teenager, money really isn't an issue.
