Not unless you’re an established top 6 side.

Need to be a good team for a few years before you can expect to win a cup.

Even then some go on long runs without one
Top six is stretching it. Top two could probably expect to win a cup.
Ask yourself. "What would Lewis Hamilton say?"

Right now, I'm just enjoying the feeling of being competitive again.

Until Man City get knocked out of the League Cup, that competition doesn't become real to me.

Yeah i know what u mean.I was getting a little bit excited last week when it looked like bournemouth might take them to penalties,until foden came up with a late winner.

Yes, just mean they’ve been spread around City, Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal etc

Get the odd fluke too but really rare

Leicester proved last season how difficult it is to sustain a good run for a full season but if we can keep on winning matches then let’s just see how we get on as we go.

A cup and top 6 would be a great effort.

But Leicester is no Everton 😉
Are we there yet?

I think we can get top 4 this season. If we win our next three or four games in the league then we can aim even higher.

Lampard has serious problems in integrating new players in a Chelsea side which leak goals.

City is still weak defensively and has reported that they have 15 fit players to choose from.

Man U hasn't had the best start.

For me its simple, if we sign a CB and RW before the window closes. (Dynamic RB would be ace too) i think we can push for top 4 this season.

My main worries are if Rodriguez gets injured we lose a lot of creativity and quick so we need another option for that position.

I still think our aim should be Europe by whichever way that is.

We stay injury free i think we will be 5th.

Not enough quality in depth for me for us to get more than top 6, I bloody love watching us play now and for now that’s good enough for me as we are turning up and playing some sexy shit.
I think qualifying for Europe is a definite possibility as is a cup final if we don’t succumb to many long term injuries.

The only reason I feel Leicester is a poor comparison is because they're a 1-man team. Vardy doesn't score, they rarely win. Top to bottom, we're now a far more talented, deeper side.

Drives me batty! They're back top of table thanks to their +7 gd. Of course they have 5 successful pens.

I don't think I've ever met a neutral who dislikes Leicester, they are a pretty inoffensive team as far as I'm concerned. It was great for football that they won the league. As @Stumpy says I'm just going to enjoy this for as long as it continues.

I can't stand them

We can hardly go complaining about penalties after being gifted that one yesterday,at least the 3 pens leicester had today looked nailed on.On top of that i've had a couple of spurs mates howling about the last min one given against them today.I havn't seen it but they and a fellow blue all said it was a complete joke.
