6th, where do you think ?

Maybe 8th at best
I'm honestly shocked that we've allowed it to get to this stage with no striker, it's plain stupid

Do you think Koeman, Moshiri and Walsh are all frauds ? Could be eh ?

I'd say 5th to 7th, so Europa really.

5th if DCL keeps on being the dogs bollocks, and Sandro adapts because at the moment the lack of English speaking is his only excuse.

7th worst case because everyone else in the league is still worse off by quite some stretch, especially with the signings we have made.

DCL looks a good prospect he's not ready to score the goals to send us to 5th that's for sure but I like your optimism

I agree it's not likely. I don't mind allowing my expectation ceiling to be a bit of a stretch ;)

Ramírez, Rooney and Sigurdsson, maybe Klaassen; would all need to be scoring decent amounts as well.

Bad attention seeking again. Sounds like some kind of personality disorder to me.

Not attention seeking I'm asking where people think we'll finish with no Lukaku replacement

Defo reserving judgment on Moshiri, maybe the other two are just crap at their jobs?

Leicester are good enough to close the gap and even WBA are now our rivals with all their signings. Probably 8th maybe 9th, but you never know. TRansitional season number 2. I can live with it.

Honestly don't think we 've improved much and concerned that in reality we are being outspent by much smaller teams. Looking at player sales vs purchases since moshris arrival we 've not done much at all despite much promise.

8th at best? Ok.

So who's finishing above us?

I take it you have not seen them play this season? As impressive in attack as we are not. Last season was a post championship blip. this season they will challenge us for certain. That is why I said 8th, although we might get 7th if the untried DCL scores 15 and Rooney gets 10, and  we get 30 more goals from midfield, which is stretching fantasy to its limits. Koeman will be furious. He is left holding the baby.
