If we can continue in the same vein as we did at the weekend, we'll win far more games than we'll lose.
Last season, that game would have ended in a defeat. Let's just take the point, learn from the 2 goals conceded in that game and move on to the next one.
I believe that we will nick a couple of wins against the top six this season, and once we have our new signings bedded in and up to speed, who knows where we can go.
Patience is key though. If we see the performances on the pitch, the crowd are far more likely to cut Silva a lot more slack. He needs time to finish the rebuilding job that he and Brands have started so well, and as fans, we owe it to him to allow him this time.
A top 8 finish, with consistently good performances would be perfectly acceptable for this season. I just want to be entertained by what I am seeing on the pitch every week, rather than bored like I was with Koeman and Allardyce.
A decent cup run would be a bonus. It's been a while since we had a day out on the piss at Wembley (the Tottenham away game last season doesn't count)
