One of the expectations achieved! Yay...

I would say 3 of them have and the other 2 still might.

- Show clear progression (duh!) - Close the gap on the top two - No more fucking about for a Top 4 finish. Must finish in it comfortably! - Win at least one of the domestic trophies

Realistic expectations in my opinion are 10-15 point improvement on last season (say 75-82 points) would be seen as good progression. Should keep us comfortably in top 4 next season and closer to Live

80 points in the League, which means a comfortable top 4 finish. Improvement in the tactics of the team. I want to see a compact team, with quick one touch play, and most importantly we should pr

I would say two, we've closed the gap on the Dippers. 

And now they've closed the gap on us 

'Top 4 finish with no faff and rely on other results to help'

Hahaha...how wrong I was...

I worded that wrong, I meant that the Dippers have closed the gap and we need two wins from two now.

Sooooooo, how are your predictions doing? 😄

One funny thing - all those predictions were written under assumption that they will be achieved under Lampard 😄

A comfortable top 4 finish is my favourite.

Get past the last 16 in the Champions League..its been a while!!

Decent runs again...if meet Arsenal in the FA cup..be nice to be 4th time lucky.

Top 4 finish with no faff and rely on other results to help

Defend corners...better defensive record then this season

Finish the season with Frank...

Got past last 16....

Top 4 finish...that part was right! The rest. Faff yes..others.. YEA!

4th Place, a Cup (League or FA), QF of the CL, Solid team chemistry by the end of the season. Met Expectations. Anything over that would be exceed expectation. 

We'r looking good in terms of signing and plugging in the gaps at this stage, we could actually have more than 50% change in terms of our starting 11 when we take the field on our first game. It will be very important for the players to settle in, understand stratergy and replicate it on the field, develop chemistry. Hence I feel 4th place. 

However if we're able to achieve this then we are title contendors next season for sure. 

 

4th Place - Accomplished (thanks Spurs / Leicester)

a Cup (League or FA) - Missed by a game

QF of the CL - Overachieved :)

Solid team chemistry by the end of the season - Chemistry is good just the physics of getting the ball in the net is missing. 

Overall - A little more than "Met Expectation" with the potential to be part of History season.

This season feels like a wasted season because of what Lampard did...

- This one would depend on our luck but get past the UCL Round of 16 at least

Achieved 3 things there (although didn't finish in the Top 4 comfortably!) and also something unexpected...being KINGS OF EUROPE again!

My only expectation I had at the beginning of the season was getting top 4 comfortably - no excuses.

Never thought at the beginning I'll be singing Campeonas at the end of the season! Legends!!!

Win UEFA SuperCup and Club World Cup. Only two titles I have not witnessed us winning live.

Mount a respectable title challenge

Get into the knockout stages of CL

 

I don't have too high expections tbh. The season will be a struggle again. No summer break. Injured and tired players from euros, fly 13 hours to Japan in the middle of the season and return with huge jetlag.

Lose Mendy to AFCON middle of the season.

Mammoth program with a probably smaller squad. Fatigue will be a huge factor. Only good thing is our squad is younger than last time we faced such a mammoth program so maybe they recover better.

Yes, I also want this so badly. We are big favorites and we have to win both! Worth mentioning that we qualified for Clubs World Cup in 2022 as well with 24 teams.

PL is also absolute priority! Gap towards City under Tuchel is not big at all. We are 2nd with 7 points behind. We lost so many stupid points. I would even argue that we can win title with this squad without new players, basically just Timo and Kai need to be clinical and I am sure they will score much more goals next season.

That is it! Fa Cup, Carabao Cup not that bothered... CL apart from Real it never happened that team wins twice in a row so I wont be disappointed with that.

We need a new version of this thread!

Especially because it looks like it's shaping up to be a hit or miss transfer window...SO far.

The only thing that's been accomplished is the loss of Gilmour and Giroud. And no certainty on reinforcements.

Nobody is stopping you from creating one.
