Anyone wanna adjust their predictions, I see no reason why we can't finish in the top 6

Big ask that, in the top 6,  forget the first three of the top 6 but we finished 26 points off fourth, 21 points off fifth and 14 points off 6th place, assuming the Top 6 perform to a similar level its going to take one hell of an improvement in Marcos first season.

A trip to Wembley must be on the cards with that squad though.

I want 7th on 60+ points, style and control progress on the pitch.

throw the kitchen sink at the FA and League Cup, if we get a fortuitous run it would be great.

Patience is the word this year, but I would ideally like to see us put some sunlight between us and the pretenders.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I want at least 7th with 8th place far behind us.  Silva-ware would be awesome too!

7th-8th but a much more settled season which we can build on.

I'd be fairly optimistic about our future if we were able to finish the season with a nice, healthy, positive goal difference.

Obviously important not to get carried away as it is a transition period. That being said, we will probably win the fucking lot!

60 points is a good benchmark, and that's typically good for anywhere from 5th-8th. It would mean we're scoring a fair amount of goals and have a decent differential. Can't really control what teams around us do save when we play them directly, so I'd aim for a points target over a specific place.

Somewhere between 7th and 9th. Much depends on how good or bad the other big spenders are around us.

Well there a couple of reasons why we might not win a cup, draw Man City away, Liverpool away, Spurs away, you could not be confident of wining those three matches can you.

In a cup game there's no reason to think you can't. One off games yield unexpected results. Particularly in the league cup which we should go all out for while the above almost certainly won't
