Premier League fans’ verdicts – the run-in, part 2: Manchester Utd to West Ham

With eight weeks to go, fans assess the season so far, and what lies ahead
Click here for part 1: Arsenal to Manchester City

What’s the mood among fans? The games are coming thick and fast – you expect that when you end up in the Europa League but belong in the Champions League. Most fans would take winning in Stockholm over fourth place but both are attainable. Then for some big work in the summer: we’re still in transition, so José Mourinho will have to add to the squad again and ship out the dead wood, regardless of their previous status.

• Click here for part 2: Manchester United to West Ham

What’s the mood among fans? With all the uncertainty about Arsène Wenger’s intentions and the increasingly likely exit of our two world-class talents, the ‘end of days’ mood around N5 couldn’t be stronger. Fans of most clubs would be delighted with a Wembley semi and a continued push for the top four – but we’re just dreading the prospect of an extended 10-game wake. And then there’s having to turn my phone off for the entire summer, should we end up finishing below our neighbours for the first time in 22 years.

Premier League fans’ half-time verdict part 2: Manchester United to West Ham

The Observer fans’ network on the season so far: United in transition, Stoke’s messy start and the problem with Bob Bradley

Frustrating. We’ve squandered leads and points, but the team is vastly improved since Mourinho took over. We’re slowly returning to the attractive football the fans yearn. At times the team can appear one-paced, and really needs the infectious, direct positivity of Mkhitaryan. Rooney and Mata shouldn’t be starting as wide attackers, at least not together, but Pogba and Zlatan have developed a good understanding and combined well at Palace. They are our star players and it’s that sort of thing we should be seeing every game. 6/10
