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.
