Can Evertonians dream of winning multiple trophies this season?

As the transfer window slams shut and Everton's first team squad going into the rest of the season is confirmed, we look at some of the odds on the Blues winning a trophy this season.

One trophy will do. And I think we'll get one this season or next.

Ofcourse, what a stupid question. You can dream about anything.

We have a chance to win a trophy because we are in them.

I'll accept progress, which can come in many forms. If by February we are still in the Europa, out of the tinpot cup, still in the F.A. cup, odds on for at least 7th in the league, and, most crucially; have signed a Benteke/Dzeko/Giroud; from that point I won't mind if we win a trophy or not as long as we don't slip out of Europa spots for the next season.

The dream is certainly getting Champions League through the Europa final but it's a huge ask as @Everton Mint (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=3381) was saying in another thread.

We should win the lot to be honest, and then win the world cup in the summer

I dreamed DCL's bird left him and came to live at ours as a naked housekeeper, who made incredible pies.

Had a look earlier and I think our odds on winning the Europa was 25-1.

The bookies are rarely very far wrong.

Fourth favourite at 20s on Sky Bet

Shortest odds are 16s I think

You can't ever plan or expect to win a knockout competition. Most excited and hopeful about the Europa League. At the very least we should expect that we only get knocked out of all the cups by genuinely strong opposition.

If we go out of one of the domestic cups to lower league opposition again, Koeman can fuck right off.

So you don't think we can realistically win a cup? Have you seen some of the teams that get to finals some years? Cup football is always a different entity than League football - even without the striker we are yet to sign, I think there's a good chance we will win a trophy in the next two seasons.

Give it a rest would you. Chasing the lad around every time he posts something is getting boring now.

Honest.

I'm optimistic by nature, but I genuinely think that our drought will come to an end soon and that once we've won a trophy we can kick on. It all depends on a number of variables of course but we will have a trophy soon. I can feel it

And yet over the last 20 years how many league and FA cups have been won by teams outside the top 6?

3 or 4 I think.

Not outside the realms of possibility but we very rarely win big games and even more rarely win big games not at goodison.

I don't like thinking about it really because I start to wonder what the fuck I'm doing, but the idea that we win a cup competition is really more about hope and dreams than it is about consistency or quality.

I've actually thought this since RK took over (maybe the winner in him)...don't know what it is exactly but I'm sure it's on the cards ....
this time next year ......

As a manager maybe, but we all know as a player he was mustard ....just something about the guy. ...he's gotta be as hungry as any Everton fan for silverware .

Never understood why we place such little importance on the League Cup. Win 5 games and we've got ourselves a trophy by February, safely in Europe and the no trophy in 20 odd years monkey off our back.

Exactly. Like when managers "save" our players' fitness by dropping them in games. Not understanding that morale can just be as important, and a winning streak is far more beneficial than losing two or three on the trot, and players being a bit fed up, but a bit fresher - doesnt make sense. Got out to win EVERY game, and take players off when the game is won, not try and rescue it when we are losing it.
