who are ahead of us in the league.

 

Obviously Southampton and Newcastle look the prime candidates. Both done well but are now dipping although I wouldn't expect either to plummet down the league.

 

Spurs had a big result tonight, I reckon they'll go on a run again.

 

Man. United......surely not?!

Christ, Newcastle dipping? They'd won 4 in a row before tonight!

Don't think Newcastle are "dipping".

 

As I said in the match thread, my quiet ambition is for us to replace Southampton as the rising team in the top 9 - made a good start tonight!

 

However, need to keep quiet about this or will get lots of abuse from people telling me I should be grateful we are tenth.., (it's a "project", don't you know?)

I think realistically we can finish 8th, the best of the rest so to speak.

 

Anything above that is far too ambitious for me. I think 8th is ambitious enough lol

 

I'm expecting us to compete with Southampton, Newcastle, Swansea & Baggies for the 8th-12th positions.

If we finish top 10, I'd be very pleased because I think that is what out current level is and it shows real progress under Lambert. Each season we should hopefully be aiming to jump up at least a few spots in the table till we are hovering in the 5th-7th zone (assuming our financial backing stays the same).

If we're top ten at Christmas then we should realistically be looking at seventh or eighth.

 

Southampton might be having a blip, but it's the barcodes we'll have to worry about. You never know Everton's form might not be sustainable allowing us a place.

 

I agree that the bottom eight as it stands are poor, i think many of the Championship teams could compete equally with some of those teams.

Because 9th is so much more prestigious than 10th right?
