Spot on, but it would be nice to finish at least top ten, have a decent Cup run, ultimately feature in Europe and vastly improve our Stadium.

Not at all.

To some extent.

Very much so.

"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"

It's beyond the realms of possibility.

Leicester winning the league was like a 1 in 100 year storm. It won't happen again probably in most of our lifetimes. I do think we could push for Europa League though under Allardyce. Whether we'd want that though is another thing altogether given the harsh timetable it inflicts and the pressure it puts on smaller squads like ours.

Don't think we will win it, but no reason we can't compete for Top 8. I think we are already the 8th best side in the league. Sign some good players, get a bit of luck, suffer no injuries and who knows, we might end up Top 4. Unlikely, but no pressure, no expectations, and that should help.

Finish as high as possible - and another decent crack at one of the cups.



The Silverware will be coming home next time.

The rationale seems fairly valid as to why there will be a shift in dynamics with the top 6, except for "Man City should struggle" with no explanation. Chelsea losing Costa and Hazard would be a blow, but would depend on replacements, ditto Man Utd and Zlatan.

But then, if it all did take place as the OP said, you would have everyone from West Brom down thinking the exact same thing about challenging for the title, and we would still need to finish above teams who have finished above us this season.

Add in that the transfer window isn't even open yet, so we have no idea who we are going to start the season with, let alone anyone else - that's partly the reason I'm not writing Brighton off quite yet - their fans may be deluded idiots, but Hughton is a decent manager who will know where they need to improve and what they need to do to survive.

In short - is it possible? Yes. Is it likely? No.

Edit - to add a balance to it, I will be having my usual each way bet on us winning the league next season. Made a profit 2015 / 2016 when we were fifth, but a loss last season.

If we get no significant injuries and improve the whole squad, i.e. back-ups as well as first choice, we can aim at 7th or 8th. Anything higher is extremely unlikely.

As many have said, No. We will all be dead and gone by the time something like that happens again. I still can't believe it happened even now- it was incredible. On reflection, with the financial dynamics I would even rank it above Forest in 79 & 80 as the all time biggest achievement in European Football. Its was incredible.

As for us, well it would be nice just to have a stress free Season and be able to enjoy it! We would be aiming for 10th I should think, and to get to 49+ points and set a new club record.

It's not impossible for us to get into a Europa League position at some point or even hopefully win a cup, if we keep building on these foundations- but I think that is our limit and ceiling for the foreseeable future.

If you mean 'doing a Leicester' and not getting relegated - then yep!

Id just be happy with a 6th season in the premiership.

Feel like I'm clicking on a thread straight out of North Korea Chat.

Finish 17th and beat Brighton please. Anywhere above 17th/any cup runs is a bonus.

Beat Brighton twice, don't go down, good cup run, hold on to Zaha. All of those would make it a fantastic season.
