I think we chronically underperformed for the first 1/2 to 3/4 of the season due to a number of reasons but most relevantly mismanagement. We may be slightly overperforming now, it's hard to tell. What I'd like to see is a whole season where we perform according to our ability. Another 3 wins from the first half of the season (totally do-able, take Sunderland or Swansea matches for example) and we'd be comfortably top half on 47 points right now.

Thinking about things I think your on the right lines. Personally I would say for our club par score for this season should be 50 points. If we do survive then I feel with the quality of our squad and it being our 5th season in the PL then 50 should be a par score for next season.

If we had an amazing season where things went our way I would say we could get 65 points which over the last 10 seasons would have got us somewhere from 5th to 7th. Equally if we had a disaster and were 15 below par then we would probably be 19th and relegated.

I'm just hoping for a full season of the same manager and some stability.

We haven't had that in any of the 4 seasons so far.

Would love BFS to get us to where he had Bolton, pushing for a top 10 finish without worrying about the relegation zone and focusing on a cup run.

Get to 40 points. Then try to finish above Stoke, WBA, Southampton.

Unless football changes in terms of money then I doubt we'll see another Leicester style season in our lifetimes, let alone Palace be the team to do it.

I would rather just get to 40 points and go all out for the Cup again.

Sadly the Fair Play League is no more. West Ham were the last team to qualify through it before it was disbanded.

Which is a shame, as we haven't had a red card all season

Also, the FA Cup runners up no longer qualify for Europe as we learned last season.

So looks like it's 7th place and hope the various cup winners finish high up the table, if you want European qualification.

Personally not bothered if we 'do a Leicester'. I'd be happy if we 'do a Southampton'. A couple of qualifying rounds would be more than enough for me.

Can we 'do a Leicester' ?

After a great end of season run resulting in survival, there is a cause for optimism at Palace that we haven't seen since the days of Steve Coppell.

It's by no means not beyond the realms of possibility that with a decent pre season and Allardyce picking up some great overseas players as well as keeping our current crop of talent we can challenge for the title.

Rationale
Chelsea will struggle without Hazard and Costa + the added bonus of another 12+ games in Europe that they didn't have this season
Man United are a spent force and will lose Zlatan in the summer.
Man City should challenge
Spurs will struggle at Wembley resulting in failure to finish in the top four and Arsenal with are without Wenger - nothing to worry about. Liverpool under the myth that is Klopp will blow it again and will have more games in Europe to think about, this will allow Crystal Palace to run away with the title.

Thoughts?

Leicester winning the league was a wonderful miracle. That will never happen again IMO.

Wouldn't it be nice to 'run away with the title'. Either that or winning the lottery.

Absurd.

We could be a half decent bet at Europa contention though.
