I seem to be pretty much alone on this but I'm not that optimistic if truth be told, as it currently stands.
If no more signings are coming then 10th at best.
Don't think we'll bother the relegation spots at all but don't think we'll get near the top 6 either.
We need a truly class player to push us on.

Voted 8-12th if we sign no more, still think we need a top midfielder, Luiz, McGinn and Nakamba are too inconsistent, need someone to help us control games for longer periods.

Mid-table ?

After pumping millions into the squad buying up other Clubís best players
Losing Jack but strengthening the overall squad with probably more signings to come
Been one of the richest clubs in the premiership with two owners with massive ambition

And some of you guys realistic ambition of mid table is no more than Southamptonís or Burnley
Thereís no wonder Jack fucked off

We should be openly talking about top six this season that should be our aim we have big ambitions if people donít think we can do it and they should leave the club And bring people in who believe we can at any level
If we donít make top six then at least die trying

Should be aiming for top six but I think we'll end up 7-10.

Spend well on a top quality DM and maybe bring in another CAM and I think we can get 6th

Think the top four will be the usual suspects. Think it's fairly easy to predict 8/9 of the bottom half. Leaving us in a mini league with Arsenal Tottenham Leicester Everton etc

7th

I'm one of them, I think the signings we've made are all pretty sound but of the type a mid table prem team would make to consolidate.

This is the squad:

Keepers: Martinez, Steer

Left Back: Targett, Young
Left Centre Back: Mings, Hause
Right Centre Back: Konsa, (Likely) Tuanzebe
Right Back: Cash, Guilbert

DM: Nkamba, Luiz
8: McGinn, Sanson

10: Buendia, Chuck

LW: Bailey, El Ghazi, (Buendia)
RW: Traore,  Philogene-Bidace, Trezeguet (inj)

Strikers: Ings, Watkins, Wesley, Davis

That's the squad as it stands give or take. Very strong in the final third. Room for a couple of midfield additions. I've included Axel as it seems imminent.

Strong defensively, one of the best keepers in the world too. Attacking fullbacks as well.

That's as good a squad as Leicester.

We need to keep moving or we will continue to lose players if any of them, as we hope, make an amazing breakthrough. That should be the lesson of the summer. Get two more top class players in plus cover in defence. Target top four. If we fall just short and finish in Eurooe, that won't be a bad effort at all. If we target Europe and fall short, we've achieved nothing.

I don't see Burnley or Wolves buying Bailey, Ings and Buendia.
