Re: Very difficult transfer window......
Top 8 would be realistic with a definite change in how we play and the team ethic being a realistic change for next season.
We can't compete for top 6 yet, we are too far away.
Football being so results based, I would hope that FM sticks with MB and MS for a good few yeards and that we are going to a new stadium on the wave of change and a upturn in fortunes both on and off the pitch.
This is a few seasons and transfer windows work to get anywhere decent IMO.
.....with it ending early in a World Cup year and a new DoF and coach starting in June.
My expectations are in check for next season. I suspect the lack of time is a reason the likes of Klaassen are being got off the wage bill quick when ideally Silva would probably want a look at him in pre-season first. We simply have to cut the wage bill quick to bring in our main targets.
With this cull of players they seemed to have set the tone.
The senior team know their places aren't guaranteed and they have to be worked for and the under 23's know there's a place for them if they step up.
And for me it should be Coleman for Captain, if there is one player who's going to lead by example it will be him and if someone's not pulling their weight on the pitch it'd be him. Yes he's not been at his best but he admits that and once he gets his sharpness back expect to see a few strikers ending up in row Z.
If we can bring in 3 to 5 players a mixture of experience and youth I' expecting a top 6 finish.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
