our own expectations
I do think that's the battle this season. We need to calm down as a fanbase and as a club, and let a new manager have a season to establish himself (as long as he's not disastrous, obviously).
It would be good to get 7th or higher, and get back into Europe if we could. Also hopefully we can have a good go at winning a cup. But as long as we're top 10, and clearly building towards something better for the future, with players improving and young players growing in influence, I think we should be happy.
