Does everyone genuinely think we will be chasing the top 4 this season, or are we being overly optimistic?

I like how the squad is shaping up so far, but I think Roms goals will be sorely missed, and hard to replace.

I am hoping the new players gel quickly, but I am not expecting fireworks from the get go.  It has been the most exciting transfer season in my 30 plus years supporting the toffees and I just hope the new boys can deliver the goods.

Top 6 and a cup would be a great season, top 6 would be a good season, top 4 would be a great season, top 4 and a cup would be an exceptional season.

I reckon we will finish 6th with no cups or 7th with a cup win

Better challenge for top 6 this year, we won't trouble top 4 just yet.

7th, closing the gap to the top 6, and a decent run in the europa league. Quarter finals would be nice. Not expecting any cup glory considering the amount of matches we'll be playing, we're just not there yet depth wise (unless we sign a LB, CB and a CF or two before the window closes).

Think we would have had a good crack at top 4 if we weren't in Europa. I think 7th again, but closing the gap on top 6. A cup would be our most realistic chance of success

Expecting a top 6 finish and decent runs in the other cups is a huge ask. I would rather focus on the league and Europe.  I'd be happy and would expect Europe again via league placing, and quarter final in Europe. If we fail in Europe then I'd want us to reach a semi final in one of the other cups.

7th extremely comfortably while hopefully being a little closer to them above us
A real run in the Europa league. Very small list of sides it's acceptable to go out to
Another season of developing our squad. Maybe see 1 or 2 more youngsters establish themselves. 2 or 3 more big signings over what's left of this window and the next

With the current squad, I expect 7th comfortably again and some good cup runs. 2-3 more good signings then we may have enough to catch one or two of the teams above us. I still think top 4 is a way off.

7th in the league as the squad stands but there should be no excuses for not making a real go at winning a trophy this season.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

I'd go with others and say 7th but I don't think 6th spot is out of question, especially if Spurs struggle playing there home games at Wembley next season.

Got a feeling we'll get to the FA Cup final.

We'll struggle to better 7th but I'd like to think it'd be a bit closer this season. Decent cup runs should be a minimum too.

Be amazed if it's Spurs that drop out. Think Arsenal Utd and Liverpool are all well short of Spurs level

Spurs struggled when playing their CL games at Wembley, they picked up 53 points last season from fortress WHL. I don't think they will get anywhere near that playing at Wembley.
