Positive shock is a very common thing in football when you sack and replace your current coach with a new one after patience within a club no longer exists to keep things go in a negative way. That happened last season, but long-term numbers didn't look any better after Mourinho, so basically the Portuguese should have stayed ManU coach, but he didn't.

I really don't know what's the problem with ManU after Alex Ferguson. First they thought David Moyes is the biggest problem, later Van Gaal came and nothing changed, then Mourinho came and he actually was the only one who managed to finish one season at 2nd place after 2012/2013 season.
It'll take time to find a real man who will also bring back the lost Manchester Utd mentality and ID back.

It's not just Bayern have this sort of problem in the last 4 years, even Barcelona right now are having the same problem and probably R. Madrid, too.

The only winner right now is FC Liverpool. Jürgen Klopp without huge, heavy investments and very attractive and noisy names managed to create a machine that is dominating in England like never before in their Premier League history. They look even better this season and one would expect worse start, but they could actually break their own records from the last season.

All top 5 leagues have become very interesting this season, some even last season. But this one has definitely potential to make a lot of exciting matches, title races and clashes for European spots. We'll see after first 20 matches how things are gonna stand.

No stopping them now. We'll be hearing about it being their year for the next six months, knowing that unfortunately, it is. But that will be nothing compared to when they actually do it.

Didn’t they also have such a healthy lead last year iirc?

I also think they’ll finally win it but not excluding City yet.

Still way too early to give out trophies. But it does feel like this should be their season. They seem determined, hungry and ready.

Truthfully, I know he was widely criticized for his performances by many, and some will claim he hasn't kept up with the "modern game" or whatever, but in retrospect I feel like Mourinho's time at United should be a testament now to just what an accomplishment it was for him to finish second and win Europa League.
That team has so many problems in so many different areas. They have next to zero depth and even at their best they can hardly field a team that can compete with other decent teams (and yes, I know how much that team/players cost, that's a whole other issue). They've overpaid for unproven or overrated players, continue retaining (and overpaying) players who are well past their prime, no clear transfer strategy whatsoever nor any clear squad planning (consider how de Gea has been flat-out BAD for the past 2+ years but was just given a 300k PER WEEK extension), and they are overseen by a man in Ed Woodward who has zero footballing acumen whatsoever.
All that to say that - while hindsight is 20-20 - it looks like the work Mou did at United was truly miraculous, all things considered.

Anyways, if they keep on Ole, I suspect they'll end up like 14/15 BVB or last year's Monaco, finding themselves somehow in a relegation battle. Even with a change at manager, I honestly don't think they've got a top-half side without some major changes off the pitch and some big winter spending.

Why unfortunately? Do they not deserve it by any chance?

I think Man Utd should follow the Bayern model....
Some former players should by back the club make it the fans' club again and also if possible hire a former player as manager

Agree with former players in board positions but not as coach. Just being a former player is not the criteria for an ambitious club to appoint a coach by. Their current coach, and Chelsea, are proof of that. I’m not including Bayern because I don’t think the reason we appointed Kovac was that he’s an ex-player.
