All I keep seeing is people complaining about x, y and z, so what are peoples expectations this season?

Mine is around a mid-table finish, with foundations laid for a tilt next season - we have been in a relegation battle god knows how many times in the last few years, so what did people expect this season? It's a massive overhaul but our fans seem to be expecting much more?

You’re either trying to stay up or trying to get up.

Planning for mid table mediocrity is the problem, it’s an attitude hard to shift.

Try and win as many games as you can, instead of trying not to lose.
Something we don’t seem to want to recruit in a manager unfortunately.
C'est la vie

I would be happy with mid table. We will get better as the season goes on.
Said as soon as he was appointed, the majority of our scorelines this season for us will feature Nil or One, unfortunately Karanka is no McLeish and a goal a game under Karanka won't get you promoted like he managed.

Took us a long time to get going under Monk. Lots of changes across the board. I think we will get a few wins on the bounce and we'll be away. In the mix by the end with our squad depth, once we have gelled.

Every team in the league is trying to win every game, however I am asking us as fans what are our expectations? All I keep seeing is people with there knickers in a twist over a defeat - we've had 5 league games and lost one. Yes we may have struggled to score in those games, but it takes time to turn a team around, not 10-12 weeks.

No doubt over the next hour we will see a thread on most of the players from today with a character assassination of them for there performance.

Exactly how I see us this season - if we're in with a chance around the January window, I expect us to throw a bit more cash at it.

Not on our budget

If we get promoted and win the F.A. Cup I will be happy.

A goal would be nice

I'd agree with you - midtable. However, that doesn't mean that I'm looking forward to the season. After how many years of this shit now? I'm pretty bored of watching shit football. But I'll stick with it in the hope that things get better. I actually thought we played really well in that first game against Brentford so I hope we can get back to that.

Or, we've had 5 league games and 1 win, amassing 3 goals.
