Williams, Shaw, Maguire, Lindelof, AWB, Fred, McT, Fernandes, Greenwood, Rashford and Martial have either improved or at least playing as well as they ever have. Most have improved.
Pogba has been injured most of the time but otherwise hasn't regressed either.

So far under Ole, he's managed to improve players and also buy well. He's quickly gotten rid of expensive players also even without replacing all of them which is a bold move.
I don't know much about the new players in twitter and insta which is a good sign.
What's he's not managed to do yet, is to have the team play (at least in attack) with cohesion. They always seem like they're all playing together for the first time. We've had this problem under Jose and Moyes also.
The exception to this is while we counter attack but that isn't enough. Counter attack should be a plan b option.
Fernandes has only been with us for a few weeks, you can't be crediting him playing well to Ole. And you can't say Shaw has improved, he is still shite. AWB looks like the same player as he was at Palace i.e. great tackler, mostly shite going forwards.

I don't think anyone has improved directly as a result of Ole being Coach. Fred and Rashford are playing better this season due to Ole being matey with them as opposed to being a cunt like Mourinho. They haven't improved tactically/technically whatsoever.

If anything, I would say that Ole's prehistoric training regime has caused the players to regress.

Ole says the right things... why is it taking the players so long to do as he asks? i.e pass the ball forward quicker etc...

I remember Jose screaming in the sidelines at his players asking them to not sit deep. We signed players who'd shit it against half decent opposition.

The Ole out crowd would have more credibility if they stuck to their opinions when the form isn't so bad.

Ole out. He’s tactically naive. You’ll find I’ve been saying it consistently dozer...

You could also look at it this way: Ole took the team that in the season before under Jose finished second with 80 points, then he spent another £200m on new signings, and is now battling with Sheffield for fifth.

We weren't in a fit state to be considering league position after Jose left. The club was fucked. A monstrous wage bill, a dysfunctional team, bridges burned between fans & players, players and the manager, the board - even the ball boys were bitter after Joey blamed them. No wonder Joey's right hand man fucked off. The relationships at the heart of the club were in tatters.

All that toxicity is gone and bridges have been rebuilt. Ole said his main aim was to make the fans like the players again, and the game against City proved he's done that.

Now he needs to sort out the football. It's shitloads better than under Joey but if he can't complete the mission and he gets the boot, he leaves the club in a miles better state than the previous bloke. 4 good signings too. 2 top drawer ones in Fernandes and Wan-Bissaka.

He’s still a naive hobbit masquerading as a football coach though Sid.

We have the second best record in the league over the past ten games, behind Liverpool. We've got 21 points out of 30, 6-3-1, so it's been a good but not a great run. Surprisingly, Arsenal is next with 20 points. Then there are a bunch with 18 points or so. We also have the best goal difference, +14. That's 6 goals conceded, equal best with Wolves, and 20 scored, which is second best after Chelsea who've scored 21.

Bruno has obviously been a big factor. 6 goals and 5 assists I think in 9 league appearances? The delay has helped us by letting Pogba and Rashford come back. The cynical fan in me also wonders if playing in front of empty stadiums is a blessing for our bottlers. Give matches the feeling of training games, so small clubs can't really get amped up for it against us and our class can show.

Easy run-in though, and the last match against Leicester might give us the opportunity to make sure of getting CL football.
