ED002 There is a lot of talk especially here, that with our new signings, we will be a feasible threat to the top 6, and maybe the top 4 teams. What is your view on this? do you think it is a valid claim or are we still ( in your opinion) a number of signings short of that?

{Ed002's Note - I think it will be a tough ask to get in to the top four but the last couple of seasons have seen other sides bunching up around the EL places.}

Thanks for the honest reply.

Good post Grumpy. I agree it is a big ask. We are improving obviously.

Top 4? Isn't it tough for everyone?

I mean Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd, Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal. Can one of these categorically say they are definitely going to finish top 4 next season?

Imho no so why can't we finish in top 4? Arsenal didn't qualify for champions league in something like 21 years. The season before last Chelsea finished 9th and won the league last season. We all know about Leicester and we all know who used to recruit for them and is now at Everton.

Heard all the excuses before. The Chelsea team wouldn't play for Mourinho. Leicester was once in a lifetime thing. Fact is it happened.

My point is the top 4 is no done deal. We have as good a chance as any of getting into it. I generally try to be positive and honestly think we can compete at the very top.

Top 4 is too big a dream for me whilst our signings get used to each other. I expect improvement but we're still short of being as good as the real big boys just now.

I personally would be exceptionally happy to copy Man Utd from last year, finish top 6, win the League Cup and Europa and sneak a Champions League spot that way. It would be a fantastic improvement imo.

I think the first 5 or 6 games will shape our season.

{Ed025's Note - i dont know about that bluey, the side will probably get stronger as the season goes on and they learn about each others game, plus we have a very difficult start mate..

My expectations have not been raised at all. The reality though is our core squad is now very very young and full of potential. Next season is way to soon, the season after probably is as well. I'm excited for the season after if we can keep Pickford, holgate, Kenny, Keane, gana, Davies, lookmam, Sandro and Lewis. That's a team that could play together for 10 seasons. If they get a trophy of any sort along the way it would be the first of many in my opinion.

{Ed025's Note - i think with the players we already svenny that it could be sooner, if they gel quickly we can still do some damage this coming season but i get your point mate..

We have a chance at the top 4 but think top 8 will be more realistic. Our squad is stronger so we should finish somewhere between 1 and 8 I reckon we will be 5th.

I think that one of the key factors is going to be how quick we gel and if our new players can actually play along side each other.

{Ed025's Note - thats right grumpy..
