Love a bit of positivity, me. Walcott can see things going on in training and has been involved with Arsenal squads high on quality, let's hope his expectations work out to a reasonable degree. 4th is probably too far, as he's already mentioned. I'd be more than satisfied with 5th or 6th though, and a good F.A. Cup run. We looked so much better at Leiceister than I've seen for some time. Anything less than Europe and a cup run would leave me a bit disappointed. We're looking much more like a team that's turning up with a plan.  :)

Going to need to win the next three on the bounce at least if we’re to have a chance of sixth and then some point after Christmas put another 5/6 game winning streak together.

It’s not impossible but Utd will be difficult.

I'm quite confident of getting something at United (assumngi we keep up momentum at Palace). It feels like everything is starting to fall into place and United are a bit all over the shop, this could be the game to announce that we are back in the mix.

I'm probably being over optimistic, but we'll see.

They’ve got Chelsea the week before and Juventus midweek, not sure if that’s a good or bad thing considering the poor form they’ve been in so far. A win would really ramp it up though.

I'm the eternal optimist, I like the team and the players to aim high, and I think it's useful to aim higher than you really think you can get, but real talk for a second, we're not getting anywhere near fourth.

You've got to be able to churn results out week after week regardless of injuries and players' loss of form, and we're not ready for that yet. We'll be dangerous to every team (because the manager tries to win every game, and we have players who can hurt anyone), and capable of dazzling but at times, we'll be inconsistent and probably throw in the odd shocker.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Love the positivity, but I would still be happy between 6-10 th in our transitional season ...depending on what happens in the January window...this should be easily attainable on our form .

Love watching  the attacking footy  and the difference in attitude in the crowd at Goodison is a breath of fresh air .

Keep it going Blues.

Although 4th is clearly overly optimistic we can’t be happy with 6th-10th. We have the best squad outside the top 6, have spent the most out of the rest on this current squad and quite frankly outside the usual suspects the rest of the league isn’t up to much.

I know we have a new manager and a new regime but we have to have some form of expectation and 7th should be the minimum we’re aiming for. Let’s not talk ourselves down and dampen the optimism.

Positivity is great but we're blowing up a balloon on the basis of beating Leicester, which was a great result but we were getting slagged for losing to Southampton the week before. Walcott wants 4th and so do we all but we need to keep a perspective for at least a while yet.

I really dont want us to run before we can walk is all....and after the last few clueless regimes am willing to give this lot a few years minimum ....but by all means I'm hoping they aim high .  Just don't expect the world this season .
