The table is looking how it should do really, the usual top 6 suspects are all there, then us and the rest, I'd be made up for a 7th place finish especially after the last 2 seasons
..............because of losing at Bournemouth ,Burnley ,Watford etc. we've allowed a 7 point gap to open up to 6th place and you can only see Man Utd getting better. So you're right,7th is the best we can hope for and maybe a good cup run.
Looking at the Top 6 and their comparative wealth and squad strength, it's ludicrous to me that anyone would think we should be ahead of any of them, 6 months into Koeman's reign. Out of all of them, I could maybe only see Utd having a potential crisis at some point, and being potentially catchable, but even that is highly unlikely given their investment and the depth of their squad. I know 7th isn't that exciting for many people, but Klopp took over when the RS were 8th and 30 league games later, in a much weaker Premier League last season, they finished 8th. I think there's plenty to look forward to for us. Hopefully we can significantly improve the squad in the next few weeks, we've got a chance to have a proper go at the FA Cup, we've got some exciting young players developing and hopefully, our style of football will gradually come together as the season progresses. Not to forget some big news on the ground move, fingers crossed.
Given our start to the season and Man United's stumbles, we should be 6th. Unfortunately, we have been fairly awful since mid-September. That is what is frustrating; you can't just ignore how we started and evaluate the season by looking at the table alone.
7th would be superb, simply because it would be a, progress and b, a return to where we SHOULD be rather than under fucking perfoming.Need to send a message to the Southamptons, West Ham's and stokes of the league that if anyone is breaking the glass ceiling it's going to be the blues.We'd also be back in Europe I think which would be nice.
The magnificent 7thThe fact were already 7th despite not playing well for a good while shows how ridiculous the shouts for bottom half are.We are a lot better than the teams below us. Just gotta take baby steps to really challenge those above us.
