    Unlike normal summers, the players must have wanted the season to roll straight into 2020/21.

    My hopes for 2021 is that future historians say that’s weird, nothing whatsoever happened in 2021. May we live in boring times.

    FA Cup semi-final will be awful without another game after.

    We are all on a bit of a high at the moment with the momentum of performance since lockdown, and I do think the short off season/pre-season will be an advantage to us. However when we do these prdictions we forget we do not exist in a bubble (COVID joke intended). Who predicted Sheff Utd this season. Can they repeat it? Will Leeds do it next season?
    I voted for qualify for Europa more in hope then expectation, I will be happy with 14th and above with no risk of relgation.
    I see Chelsea and Man U will improve a bit, so this seasons top 4 will be a bit closer together, Spurs/Arsenal will do a little better, but will be way off top 4 and may be split by Wolves, Leicester next, then it is a bit of lottery for the rest, but I expect two of the promoted teams will go back down.

    I’m trying not to be greedy and better a semi than none at all, as the actress said to the bish

    It would have taken be against someone we might expect to lose to and we’d have to be robbed

    Doesn’t sound much fun does it

    But we enjoyed the League Cup Final and that's exactly what happened

    I wa want to win a trophy of course but we could do that and get relegated so I opted for Champions League.

    So many times in the last few seasons, the big clubs struggle for form and can be beaten by anyone, we were 14 points from top 4 this season, to put that into context we were 18 points from relegation.

    If we can play the way we have played since the 9-0 and especially since post lockdown, there is no reason why we couldn't get those points, surely that has to be the aim and if we can win a cup on the way then that would be the icing on the cake!

    probably goes against the grain Lewbster, but I’d take a cup win and relegation now.

    seen us lose in cup finals and not seen us win a major one live. I was 6 when we one the Fa Cup. (JPT was ace, but I want a bigger one)

    my father in law is a Wigan fan and says that even though Wigan got relegated, winning the FA Cup and being there was the best day of his life, after the joy of me marrying his daughter... :)

    Away in Azerbaijan on a Thursday and off to Barnsley on the Sunday?

    That's the dream.

    As a genuine target I think we should be aiming for Europa. We were only one place off the top half in the season just gone, so I don't think it's silly to aim a few places above that. Not long ago we were the best of the rest, those not in the fabled top 6, and it's an achievable aim to get back to that.

    However a cup win and finishing 17th, staying up on goals scored, would be fine with me.
