It has only been six English Premier League matches for David Moyes at the helm of Manchester United.
In those six matches he has won twice, drawn once, and lost a disappointing three times.
Two of those losses came against United's fiercest rivals, and most embarrassingly they were humiliated by Manchester City in a 4-1 scoreline.
The third came in a 2-1 defeat to West Brom at Old Trafford.
For Manchester United, those are the games that you absolutely have to win if the ambition for the squad is to challenge for the Premier League title.
As a result of the Red Devils poor start to the season David Moyes has come under scrutiny and the media have blown up his poor start to epic proportions, including suggestions that the Manchester United board are losing patience with the Scot.
But Manchester United do not need to panic.
Yes, the Old Trafford club have made their worst start after six matches since the 1989-90 season.
But who was the manager in that season? None other than Sir Alex Ferguson.
And it had not been his first year at the club either. The previous season they had finished second in the country's top division; nine points behind rivals Liverpool.
After a nine game winless streak to begin the season Manchester United finished in 13th place, not even in the top half of the table.
And no one panicked as Sir Alex Ferguson went on to manage one of the greatest footballing teams ever, successfully surpassing Liverpool's 18 English top division titles and becoming the most successful club in England.
David Moyes has none of the familiarity with the squad that Sir Alex had in that season, nor does he have any of the same experience concerning managing a title challenging side. He is in a far different position than what Sir Alex was in, and in a footballing world where immediate success has been the ambition for most sides the Red Devils need to take a step back and look at the long term benefits to what is happening now.
Manchester United supporters simply need to stay calm and remember the words of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Have faith in your new manager.
Currently the side are going through a difficult transition period, but as Moyes learns the ins and outs of managing one of the biggest clubs on the planet then surely things will fall into place.
It did for Sir Alex, it will for Moyes. United fans just need to have faith.
Stay calm and trust Moyes.
