We've been on great runs before. Especially under solskjaer. We've only just gotten 4th after all this great form and in spite of Liverpool doing poorly. So we don't have any leeway for the form to end. We'll be out of the top 4.Fuck the Glazers wrote: ↑11 months agoIt's not a real test.

This is the single most impressive stat for me when you consider how utterly fucking weak and incompetent we've been in defence for ages thanks largely for Slabhead and Hoof and 5 years of counterattack football.
It's not just the fact we have better defenders in Martinez and Varane, it's the fact for the first time since Gaal we're trying to control games with a high press and possession. Casemiro, Eriksen and Fernandes is formidable. They can win the ball, keep the ball and then progress us up the pitch.
Who knew signing better defenders and top midfielders would prove so valuable.
The real test starts soon. We've got a tough couple of games.
The city game is crucial. City aren't playing that well now. If we lose to them, it's a very bad sign. We need to show that we've improved since that 6-3 thrashing.
Tbf ten hag does look like he's really getting a grip on things at the club. So I expect an improved performance.
