    Perhaps as much as signing a striker we need to make our goals a goalpost width bigger?

    Am I watching Brighton or Barcelona?

      TB knows the budget and potential sales/signings . . . assuming that and GP/player expectation and performances, He wouldn't have said it, if it wasnt a realistic possibility and expectation.

      with a bit of luck we'd have been 45-50 points this last season anyway . . .

      It's funny how many people here have taken "aim for a top 10 finish" to mean we MUST finish in the top 10... Think Tony Bloom would be more than happy to replicate Villas position of last season, as it would show we had given it a good go...

      The change needed to get the extra 9 points might already have been made.

      Since Sanchez took over from Ryan we've conceed fewer goals and returned more points.

      Over the course of a full season that may be enough.
      True, but for me the greater problem is at the other end, the total lack of goals.

      Some people have been disappointed for two seasons that the team isnt "pushing the top 10" so if these fans are now "within their rights", it surely means it wasnt within their rights previously?
      Perhaps, but this thread is a forward looking one about next season, not the opinions expressed over the past two years.

      Agreed. And the goals we need are already in the team. On the law of averages alone, a proportion of the near misses from Trossard, Lallana, Moder and the rest must surely go in next season.
      England are still the only team to have won the World Cup wearing red shirts.

      This, Sheffield Utd, West Brom, Fulham should of all been dispatched in the first half we failed to put the ball in practically empty nets, unacceptable at this level to miss that consistently.
