Ole must deliver

He made progress last season without the club landing any of his top targets last summer.

This summer they have landed 2 already.

A title challenge and a decent CL run are a must imo.

We could finish second and lose in the CL final and some on here would still want him out because we didn’t actually win silverware.

I doubt it. That would be progress. Especially when with some actual competition next season with a Liverpool side who won’t be missing a defence and a Chelsea side with an actual decent manager coming second would be quite the achievement.

Nope, if our performances and style are still crap I’m going to be insufferable.

B-b-but this isn’t the echo chamber that Post believes exists 🤔

I took personal offence to that. How dare he group me with you and your shiiiiit opinions.

It’s difficult to really put definitive targets on what Ole needs to deliver this season, especially as things stand when others still have business to do in the transfer market.

A results have gradually improved so you’d expect that to be another expectation this coming season, but there’s potentially some very tough competition in this league.

We could improve in every conceivable metric this season and still finish fourth if Liverpool and City meet their own lofty expectations.

What I think is undeniable, and I know I bang on about it, but delivering better and more consistent performances has to be delivered. Is it really acceptable to keep scraping points like we have for so long after all the time and money that Ole has had to shape this team into one that can compete?

What I think we need is the two to have all the qualities McFred has but to be much better on the ball (and probably be positionally better as well).

-------------------------------------------------

If we were to start pushing up the pitch more aggressively and closing the space between our lines which hopefully will happen with having more athleticism in defence, it would actually help Fred because there'd be less space to exploit behind him when he steps out, presses and gets bypassed.

Makes sense. A more aggressive approach higher up the pitch you'd like to think would pay dividends. Also, if we are to continue to play the 4231 (don't see Ole changing it) and Pogba stays I'd say Fred would be his most suitable partner (if we don't sign anyone else).

For it to be a title race I'd say we'd have to be within 3 points with 3 games to play.

Cant see it.

At least we’ll be able to rest a few for the CL Final.

Depends. We could finish 2nd—20 points behind 1st—and lose the final to a beatable side by making tactical gaffes.

Matic will probably play a key role. I don’t rate him all that much but he’s better than mcfred.
