Following their embarrassing and downright shocking League Cup exit to third-tier side Milton Keynes Dons on Tuesday — United were hammered 4-0 — the Louis van Gaal era has yet to yield a win at Old Trafford.

It is still early days but with the negative vibes of David Moyes and last seasons seventh-placed finish still hanging around, can the Red Devils shake all that off and recover from a shaky start to the season?

Have your say by commenting in the section below on where you think they will finish.

With superstars such as Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Juan Mata and now Angel di Maria on board, surely United won’t finish outside the top four again this season… will they?

Here’s your options.

Where will Manchester United finish in the PL this season?

  • Champions
  • Top four
  • Top six
  • Top 10
  • Bottom half
  • Relegation…

    Too much talent to not finish in top 4, don’t think a title this year though

      Too much talent?

      Me thinks your red tinted glasses are at fault for that statement. There is talent there, but it is dragged down by a lot more dead wood.

      Trust me on this. It was the same at Pool during the Hodgson/Dalglish era.

    I’d love top four but I’m feeling top 6.

    Season is incredibly young but there is so much for my devils to improve on to contend for top ten. I think they pour on the points too late in the season for to four.

    Vidal and Blind will help a lot if they can swoop em up.

    W Chelsea and MCFC taking top two spots that leaves liverpool and Arsenal clearer favorites for top 4, pending any other competition from Everton and who knows…

    Top 10. Possibly Top 6 with proper reinforcement and if LG drops the 3 at the back.

      Spot on.

    Relegation. That loss to MK Dons was just embarrassing

  5. croberto78 - Aug 27, 2014 at 10:32 AM

    With all that talent, they certainly should finish top four, but right now Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and City all look better, and Everton and Tottenham are making a case for themselves as well. Boy, two 7th place finishes in a row wouldn’t look too good…

    • mazblast - Aug 27, 2014 at 4:31 PM

      It wouldn’t look too bad, either. It could teach MU and its fans something they’ve lacked for years–

    Reblogged this on Another Arsenal Agent and commented:
    6th place

  7. Jonestein - Aug 27, 2014 at 1:34 PM

    Top ten, prolly another 7th place year.
    The Interwebs would explode if they somehow reached relegation sukiness levels, and it would be glorious.

      One. Can. Only. Hope!

  8. booger1234 - Aug 27, 2014 at 2:28 PM

    Bottom half

  9. psuross - Aug 27, 2014 at 2:44 PM

    I think that they are going to struggle for a place in Europe. Too many new faces and a new system that clearly hasn’t come close to crystallizing yet. A lousy bottom half of the Premiership will prop them up in the top half.

    • Ian's Rushtache - Aug 27, 2014 at 5:18 PM

      +2 for being PSU related.

      Fun fact: The 1951 and 1952 PSU soccer teams were the first US sports teams to visit Iran. They were coached by Bill Jeffrey, a Scot who was also the coach of that famous, or infamous for JPW, 1950 World Cup team that beat England. PSU’s soccer field is named after him.

    Relegation I hope…

    “With superstars such as Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Juan Mata and now Angel di Maria on board, surely United won’t finish outside the top four again this season… will they?”

    They’ve certainly played like Shirley United so far this year.

  12. jfeelgood04 - Aug 27, 2014 at 10:35 PM

    6th. That’s if everything breaks right.

  13. thedeadlockvictim - Aug 28, 2014 at 12:49 AM

    Top six, LVG fired once they’re eliminated from a Europa League spot.

  14. thrash13 - Aug 28, 2014 at 2:51 PM

    Top 6 seems the most likely, but they could make a run at the top 4.

    Manchester City

    It will be tough to top those four teams, and Everton and Tottenham should be battling for #5 as well. It’s going to be pretty interesting stuff for sure.
