A year ago Manchester United were 7/1 for the title, their longest odds in the Premier League era. This season, they are 40/1.

What would represent a good season?

Champions League?

Best chance of that might be via the Thursday Night Cup.

A good season in the League? Staying in the Top 6 is a must. Top 4 would be good-ish.

40/1 though? What are the e/w terms? Is it just 2 places?

Two places for the ew bet, you're 5/4 to finish in the top-4.

No value at 5/4 is there? I’ll be happy to look back in 9 months time and wish i’d had a punt.

Surprised it's as low as 40s tbh. Realistically, you have about as much chance as Wolves of getting anywhere near the title. The fact OGS is favourite for the sack race speaks volumes.

Sadly, I do think you might scrape into the top 4, on account of post Hazard Chelsea regressing under Lampard and the transfer ban. Probs between you and Arsenal for 4th. Which is incred as it was only a few years ago when the title was between you and Arsenal most seasons.

We had a fabulous run. We haven’t fallen that far either. Were you at Wembley in ‘99  for the start of a rather prolonged recovery?

Nah, Manchester City only started appealing to me around the 2008 time, not sure why.
I was a diehard Chelsea fan before that.

Well, that was a half-decent start to the season.
Maguire and Wan-Bissaka looks like they’d been in the job for years. Pogba, although he lost possession too often, looked interested and the pass for Rashford’s second was pure class. As were Rashford’s two touches.


Chelsea now know how much they depended on Hazard.

Mind the door doesn't hit you on the way out Phil. You had so much potential but didn't make the effort needed to bring it to the fore.

Can you imagine the standards that slob of a footballer sets in and around the club.

If he left United he'd never play another game of European football or play for a top half team.

The players are rotten at United and that comedic mess of a defender is joking about ole getting sacked. All from the stands whilst looking like a 50 year bar fly who smokes 40 a day.

The transfer policy post SAF has been chaotic at best. Woodward has to bear much of the blame for that. We let Evans go and kept the doughboy. We sent Smalling off to Italy and kept the doughboy. It's no wonder that DeGea has been player of the year so often.

I once saw Peterborough draw 0-0 with Halifax on a Tuesday night. It was about zero degress and it was so boring that me and a mate wound up having a Bovril drinking competition, which ended up about 7-7.

It was still better than this.
