They haven't had a better season. Had we been in Europa they wouldn't have won it. They played absolutely horrid football all year. If that's what it takes to have a good year.....have at it.
Exactly mate. Not a better season by a long shot (or a long ball in the case of Utd).
Utd spent HUGE in the pre-season. Welcomed in their new hero Mourinho. They were ready to win the title. Let's not forget. Club expectation, the media, and the fans all expected the title.
After an awful season setting some incredible records for poor play, and with Mourinho demonstrating his ability to create dissent, disrespect, and negative football, they finished 6th.That's after having occupied 6th almost the whole season.
On the flip side, they won 2 trophies. One against Southampton after the match officials basically handed them the cup, and now secondly against Ajax's youngest side, who are simply appalling.
Progress? A great season? Who is seriously claiming this? Their football has gone down by a long way, and they now have to spend huge amounts yet again this pre-season to give them any chance. There is nothing happening. These two trophies are essentially meaningless in the big picture. Take them away and what do you have? Nothing. Look at them for what they signify... nothing much.
