I guess you could say there were two Tiers in the Top 7 - Chelsea/Spurs, then the next 5.  Whereas it was treated more like it was all of the Top 6, then us.'

One could also argue three tiers, with us and United a half-click behind 3-5.

Lukaku needs a goal to wrap up the golden boot as Kane closes in, reckon if we get a pen or a free kick around the box he'll have it

Hope he's left to sulk on the bench for the first half to watch Lookman put two past that twat in the hat.

Our home record is champions league form, our away record is mid table, quality additions should see that improve too

True. When you look at fixtures like Burnley and Watford away, shambolic games where we were still finding our feet and Ron was still making his mark on the squad, you'd like to think that we'd be able to eradicate those type of results next season with better quality both in goal and throughout the team.

My only concern is the potential losses in the squad like Lukaku and Barkley. Add to them and we should be able to kick on. Lose them and have to restructure again and who knows what next season may look like.

While we were finding our feet to a point I think there is more to it than just it was new because there have examples of really poor away games all over the season. Boro in February, West Ham in April, Swansea in May off the top of my head. I dont think we control games away, the tempo is lacking and dont have spells where we pin teams back well enough. Dont think its just one reason but I dont just think it's just down to having better players. We have a better team now than we did 7-10 years ago but back then we would have 15-20 minute spells away at average and poor teams where they couldnt get out.

So not necessarily better players but different types of players. Players like Rom and Ross when they arent in form make it hard to hold the ball, and because we dont have players who find space, receive the ball well, win free kicks, link well together like Pienaar, Osman, Arteta etc then it is hard to find consistent play away from home that can force teams back and struggle to get out. We have players like Davies, Gueye and Schneiderlin who can win it back quickly so that element is ready but it for me it is the players high up we need to add to the team who can help us control and dominate these kind of teams away from home that we have struggled to this season.

True. The next stage in our evolution needs to be players who are comfortable with the ball and not just passing it 5 yards to each other but keeping and using it with intent, all over the pitch.

It's why Vardy would be great for us. Or that type of player.

Kane could be there too, he's two behind and they've two games left against beatable teams.

Lukaku could end being 3rd.
