Nope, unless last seasons top 6 have a complete meltdown,  even Ron has stated we need 3 more to compete with the top 6, so top 4 no chance

Sign a top class, quick, strong striker, a top class, rapid winger, a couple of maurading full backs, then it's possible.

Nope were about 4 players short at the moment I'd say

Nope, at least 4 players short.

Take a look at city's bench at the weekend, miles off that sort of squad depth.

No. Not yet anyway.

We need a few more players in including a couple of very good attacking options because at present, the options we've got and the way the team is set up, we might struggle to score many goals. If we can get another good defender who can cover at centre back and left back then that would be a bonus.

We also need a couple of the top 6 to have below par seasons.

To be a genuine contender we would need two Wing-Backs to push Baines and Coleman, a proper partner for Keane at CB, a DCM fulcrum to challenge Schneiderlin, a top-class Winger, and a high-level Striker.

So yeah, just six players short.

I don't think losing Lukaku has made us lose the shape and look slow. We have more or less improved our midfield from the last season but it will take time for them to gel together.

Also, I think Sigurdson will probably replace Gana in the starting line up which would help us to become more fluid in our attacking front.

I think if we added :

Two strikers with guaranteed 30-35 goals between them if either had to play up top all year (martial and lukaku / morata and bats / aguero and jesus / giroud and lacca / sturridge and firmino)

Two wide men capable of 7-10 each (hazard and willian / Salah and Mane / rashford and mikhi / Walcott and santi (although injured) )

A partner worthy of Michael Keane that we can rely on for 30+ games (Rudiger / Jones / Stones / not Liverpool lol /)

A world class ten with pace, vision, skill and goals (coutinho / hazard / alexis / silva / pogba (sorta) / KdB /)

We could put in a genuine challenge.

If we then filled those worrying squad depth areas (full back especially) then we could win the league.

not yet, but top 6 assault I think we can manage at this stage, even without the extra players we'd like in. Quite excited for this season

Missing a striker and a ball playing CB. Stones and Lukaka pretty much
Farhad Moshiri, Alisher Usmanov, Cenk Tosun, Muhamed Besic, Idrissa Gana Gueye, Ademola Lookman, Oumar Niasse, David Henen, Barack Hussein Obama, Confucius... Everton Muslims growing stronger...

And here lies the problem of not being up there / having previously had any money.

Your always likely to be playing catchup. You sort one position out, then they leave when you've just sorted another out.

Always a gap to fill.
