You could argue that as things stand the teams below us have closed more on us than we have the top 4
True, we'll need improvement to achieve last years position really.
I still despise Clive Thomas..

Foundations are in place and the clubs we could potentially catch are the shite and perhaps Spurs if they struggle at Wembley.

Utd are favorites for the title for me. Think they'll be unstoppable with Lukaku now. What little I saw of him, the bastard seemed more up for it than we he was with us. But early days of course.

Well he's working hard now he's at a big club. He did nothing yesterday that he didn't do for us when we played West Ham... see how he fairs against better teams. He'll probably do well but that's his benchmark moment.

We're short of a top striker and left side defensively. Sort that out then why not?

We don't create enough high-quality chances and I'm not convinced that signing Sigurdsson and a target man is the solution. The defense should be solid, though. If we keep things tight at the back we should be able to grind out our fair share of 1-0 wins. Still, barring major underperformance from any of the teams that finished above us last season, I don't think we'll finish any higher than 7th.

The silver lining is that a strong defense and good set pieces (assuming we do eventually sign Sigurdsson) should put us in a good position to win a cup. Margins are razor-thin in knockout competitions and matches are frequently decided on one big event. With Sigurdsson on board, we'll have a good squad for coping with cup games.

Need to bridge the gap to 6th before you can even think about 4th. Sadly I don't think either will happen, but you just never know.

a little off topic here... Lukaku's great, don't get me wrong, but the signing that made me think they could win the league was Matic. He un-locks that whole team.

And to answer the question of this thread. No. Not even close. But I think most of us realize it's going to take more than one summer.
