    Chelsea, United and Spurs have all had poor transfer windows. We should have go balls out and broke the bank for some big money signings to take advantage of this. Feel like it's an opportunity missed. I'm quietly confident we'll pick Spurs and Chelsea to 4th this year.

    The work needed to be done is even more than I thought after seeing us in pre-season so a long long way to go.

    Said earlier this season can be seen as write off as we adjust new system and pressing game and I stand by it! Anything above 6th will be a nice bonus!

    Wouldn't kill you to be a bit positive you know :lol: I think we've looked decent pre season! Think the defending might take a little while to iron out.

    In order of competence in each position:

    GK: Utd, City, Liverpool, Spurs, Arsenal/Chelsea

    Fullbacks: City, Spurs, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Utd
    CB: City, Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea, Utd, Arsenal

    CM: City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Utd, Spurs

    AM/Wingers: City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Utd, Spurs

    Strikers: City, Arsenal, Spurs, Liverpool, Utd, Chelsea

    That’s my opinion looking at the squads around us. If we are being realistic 4th/5th would be a successful season. Although the cut off beyond 4th (I.e europa league) raises the stakes.

    What are people’s expectations for this season? Seen quite a few say anything other than top four is a write off but realistically it should be a battle for 3rd/4th between Utd, Chelsea, Tottenham and us.

    I think most would be happy be 5th, with the team generally coming together but a few slip ups costing us. Although, having said that, all it would’ve taken season to get 4th would be to fix the horrible away form.

    4th has to be the minimum. If not 4th then win the Europa. We absolutely have to get back into the CL if we want to recruit better next summer.

    I remember when this thread used to be called the race for the title. Crazy thing is it doesn't even feel like it was that long ago.

    Il take 4th at this point cl is crucial. Im not bothered about the league/fa cup this season. Once emery knows his best 11 we will go from strength to strength, i think we will get 2 players in Jan also.

    Getting back to CL is imperative and should be considered the minimum achievement for this season. Our squad is not suited for a rebuilding project, I think there’s a reason the club had chosen to sign veteran talents this year.
