League finishing position

Moyes has had a slow start as United manager in the post Fergie era. Other clubs have strengthened in the summer too. At this moment in time where do you think United will finish in the league?

Hopefully low enough to really piss off the fans... maybe we'll get some fuckin proper animosity going against the club and the Glazers...

Other than that I don't care, as long as Arsenal win the title.

The Renties and the Bitters must not have sustained success, while we're struggling so badly.

It's got to get better than this. Even with Moyes' long ball shite and no new signings in the winter it takes something extraordinary for there to be a 30 swing, which is what it'll take for United to finish outside the top four

I agree with this.

I was optimistic at start of season but with 3 losses already I fear title is out of reach. Barring any miraculous turnaround we'll finish third I reckon...

Can't see us finishing in the top four tbh. If Arsenal manage to keep going, the top three are probably sorted with them, city and Chelsea. That leaves Spurs, Scousers and us battling for fourth. You'd have to say, there'd need to be a top class signing or two (or three) in Jan to make us favourites to get higher than Spurs & scousers.
All the paper talk is Baines in Jan and nothing else, which is ridiculous - that won't make us much, if any, stronger.
I reckon we could finish 5/6th which would be a disaster for the Glazers and their accountants. But would it trigger enough of an anti-glazer movement to make those cunts take any notice?

As things stand we will be fighting for a Europa place I'm afraid. But things change, injuries occur, suspensions etc. Saurez is always a moment of madness away from a lengthy suspension. Chelsea don't have any forwards who score. Ozil could pick up an injury. Who knows? We need a bit if luck though to make top 4

At the moment I would say outside of the top four could be wrong but the team needs to start playing as a team just now a few players are pulling us through and the rest are doing nothing of note.

I voted for 4th place, this hurts saying this but it's my gut feeling. I think Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City will all finish in the region of 10 to 20 points ahead of us. Liverpool and Spurs will be in and around our position but the fact that we won't make it past the last 16 in Europe will count in our favour because we'll have fewer matches to play than Spurs.

Looking at how things stand now, I'd put 'Pool ahead of us for 4th. Hopefully things change...

Arsenal and liverpool dont relly have enough depth yet - especially at striker position,so I think (hope) their performance will fall off as the season progresses
