I'm taking a punt at 21 points out of that lot, maybe I'm hoping a little too much here but it dosent look good for a play off spot.
The average points needed to get into the play-offs over the past 10 seasons is 74, we've currently got 44, so it gives some idea of the mountain climb United have ahead - 30 pts in 16 games, for play off points needed I think the highest was 80, last year, and the lowest 68 in 2013.
If they're gonna sack him for not getting in the play offs why wait till season end, do it now and give the replacement a bit of time this season and all pre season to get the team to gel etc.

21 points? Are we playing them all three times?

The season is over so making a replacement now is good commercial sense. He can decide who he wants to keep, have a good look at the U23 squad then go knocking on the door for what he thinks he needs in the Summer. Whether the door is open or closed is another matter.

Seems so have some balls so hopefully he can instil that into the players as far too lighgtweight all over the pitch
