Have you guys seen the 'experts' analysis and predictions for the season ahead? Nobody rates us as top 4 material let alone title challengers. What do the fans, realistically, expect this season - current squad considered?

Agree0 Disagree0

You could argue spurs and Liverpool over achieved and could easily name 15 points that we dropped and were out of character. We are easily in the mix for top 4 but still probably well short of the tittle.

07 Aug 2017 16:44:31
We do better when we are under no pressure so I think it's good that no one is expecting anything from us.

Haven't seen it yet but I'm not surprised by what you say, last in the BBC pundits predictions none had us down as top 3 while only a handful thought we'd do our usual 4th place simply because we always did.
Can't see the top 4 not being Chelsea Utd City Spurs in one order or another but if one of them do slip up I think we will be snapping at thier heels with Liverpool and Everton.
My prediction is 5th based on I don't see how the side is much if any stronger and the mentality question mark that's been there for years won't have suddenly resolved it's self.
The mentality running through the club would still be a huge hurdle who ever we signed, something just isn't right off the field somewhere for things to always end so far away from the champions each season.

Top 3 an absolute certainty.

battle for 4th but it really should be time to challenge but as it stands yet again expections are low. just how the board like it.

I think we will struggle for top four again. Spursday football and Sunday league is not going to help. We are not watertight and we have a spongy midfield. No change on the managerial front means just that.

Bookies seem to think it's between City Chelsea Utd for the title and Spurs favorites for 4th with us and Liverpool just behind them.
It's tough to call the winner as no one knows how Chelsea players will respond this time round after thier awful title defence two seasons back, City under Pep I'm not sure about his premier league capabilities so my guess is United under Mourinho will pip City to the title simply because Jose always finds a way to win a title, he's never failed yet in his last 5 jobs and it's difficult to believe his record will end with united.

Top 4 I reckon (4th Most likely) at present, although can obvs. change with the transfer window still open.

Spurs will struggle big time at Wembley, they are essentially playing all their games away this season, teams will love playing there and any home atmos. will be lost. They have a pretty poor record there. Added to that no new signings and having to deal with more games in the Champs league will strech their smaller squad. They will drop out of to 4 I reckon.

Liverpool have a dangerous attack with lost of speed and are always good on the counter but I don’t think their defence is good enough to mount a serious long term title challenge and losing Coutinho would be massive blow.

I think Arsenal as it stands are ahead of Spurs and Liverpool so yeah 4th most likely I reckon. I see Man City and Utd fighting for the Title. Chelsea don’t look on edge at the moment and Conte is not happy man. Matic was a big loss, but 3rd for them I think.

Yes if we keep Shanchez and Ox which looks more and more likely then yeah 4th for us. I think think Wenger will rotate a lot in the Europa league games especially early on and use it to bring fringe players like Nelson into the frame, until the later stages. Wenger is definitely focused on the league more this season.
