I hope we win the title, but I expect we won't.

I'm usually disappointed but all I ask is a cup run and a positive goal difference

Keep the age of the squad down, bring a few more academy kids through and a League cup win with the momentum from that taking us in to the top 7.

Six points off the blunts and helping to send them down
Good attacking football
Positive goal difference
Decent cup runs
A decent points tally against the 'big six'
Brady sacked

I can dream can't I?

Ridiculously wealthy new owners that bank role success and create a great new stadium with world class players but expect to be disappointed again.

Sale of the club or at least one of GSB to peg it

The forgiveness towards these ***** for what they have done to our club truly baffles me

few end of season wins, just like last year it seems and the promise (ha! ha!) of spending a few bob on some name or another, makes people forget too easily for my liking......

That would be great, told my mate when one goes each time we’ll meet up and raise a glass when the last ****y pin falls we’ll really toast the occasion, despise all 3 of them for what they done.

Hopes? That we keep Declan Rice and Felipe Anderson.

Expectations? One, or both, will leave.

Common sense leans my expectations towards a team stripped of all youth, talent and motivation, languishing bottom 3rd, our manager realising his promised future was utter blox, and young Jack being prepped yo take over temporarily if he walks, but this summer window hasn't even started yet and actually, my expectations hinge on what happens over the next months. So I reserve hopes and expectations judgement until August

Expectations

Win a cup.

Hopes

The FA revise what constitutes a 'fit and proper owner'.

So we get new ones.

Not to cave in against our peers. Play every match as we did against the top clubs and the spuds.

Hopes:
We continue to adapt to and improve on how Pellegrini is aiming us to play.
We keep hold of Declan
Meaningful cup runs

Expectations:
Underinvestment
Games in the media
Meandering middle after showing promise

all depends on the window if we get the has beens in such as dzeko cahill etc then I fear the worse

spend some money and who knows.

realistically I think a top 8 finish and a cup final win would do me nicely !
