The 2018-19 Season is just hours away. Whether you’re looking forward to it or dreading it, you have to admit you’re a little excited football is back.

The Busby Babe wants to know just what your expectations, predictions, and hopes are for Manchester United’s season, and we’ve assembled a few polls for you to voice your opinion. Discussion is, as always, welcome in the comments.

Just keep the banter respectable, please.

Premier League Table

Manchester United finished in 2nd place in the Premier League last season. It was their best League performance since Sir Alex Ferguson’s championship send-off in 2012/13, but they were still miles behind Champions Manchester City.

The new season kicks off at Old Trafford against Leicester City on Friday August 8, 2018.

UEFA Champions League

Manchester United’s 2017-18 UEFA Champions League campaign ended in bitter disappointment as the Reds crashed out in the Round of 16, falling to Spanish side Sevilla in an embarrassing 2-1 loss at Old Trafford in the second leg of the tie. Questions were raised over José Mourinho’s willingness to compete in the historic competition, and even more questions were raised over his epic press conference meltdown over “club heritage.”

Manchester United’s domestic cup performances left much to be desired last season. United fell to lower league minnows Bristol City in the League Cup quarterfinals in a disastrous attempt to retain the title after winning the EFL Cup in 2017. They fared slightly better in the FA Cup, fighting their way to the 2018 FA Cup final, but ultimately they fell to Chelsea in a disappointing 1-0 loss. United blowing their only hope at a trophy left many fans pessimistic about the next campaign.

José Mourinho

So far, José Mourinho’s 2018-19 campaign has not generated a lot of excitement. He’s been critical of nearly everyone at the club, including star players for taking an extended break after the World Cup, and to make matters worse Chief Executive Ed Woodward is busier signing sponsors than he is signing players.

Mourinho doesn’t exactly have a reputation for staying at clubs long term, and the 3rd season of a contract seems to be the consensus “where it all went wrong” point.

Tell us where you think he’ll be in 1 year!
