Yeah, they broke the records for undefeated away games.

Must be the most pointless records to break when you don't actually achieve anything on the back of it.

The team that previously held the record were the Arsenal invincibles.

Yes, they've got a new 'undefeated record' away from home but like you say, they'll have a few stinkers and then pull a result out of the bag to save Ole's job... before sliding back to mediocrity again. If it wasn't a pandemic, no fans and a shit load of injuries, they'd have finished outside the Top 4 last season. Perfect storm for us meant we were well off it from the Ev game... and other big hitters didn't find their flow either.

Even with Ronaldo, Utd supporters I know aren't getting carried away as they know on paper they easily have a top 4 squad... but they haven't got a top manager to develop it. If Ronaldo gets an long-term injury, the wind will disappear out of their sails quicker than a member of the Royal family leaving their local Pizza Hut...

Yep it was a perfect combination of outside factors like our injury crisis and Chelsea appointing a rookie like Lampard which handed Utd 2nd place last season which in a way is great because it keeps Ole in a job but this season with us City and Chelsea at full strength means Utd won't have it quite as easy they did last season.
