"People in football have short memories. The start of last season is the same as this season you know.

Schmeichel needs to check his facts. As I mentioned more than once last season, United won four out of every five league matches played through the first 25 matches. That means that United was 4 0 1 after five league matches last season, and 8 0 2 after ten—a mark that is already out of reach after a 2 1 2 start by Moyes' side.
Schmeichel is not wrong...strangely enough he does not see the world in 5-game blocs such as you
We lost 2 in our first 6 games, and as I recall, hardly looked convincing in most of the other wins (RVP bailed us out a few times)
Anywas, his point was not to over exxagerate after a few games, and I think its a well made point
