Its not beyond the realms of possibility. If they have the money to spend. Sure look at Chelsea.

It won't be happening any time soon though.

couldnt see this for many years. they are not the first club to genuinely think they can reach the heights of the champions league but for now premiership survival for 3 or 4 years is a must. i think they will stay up again this season due to the fact that there are worse teams than them. the best they can hope for is 12-14 place.

I dunno, I think they might be able to have a crack at a top 10 finish.

Not too sure... He has improved the midfield during the summer but their defence looks somewhat shaky without Johnny Evans. I think they will stay up but it will still be bottom half of the table.

ya maybe if they avoid injuries and learn from last year. cant see it but football is a funny ol game. they are certainly better off having the season they had behind them instead of a false high like many teams get first year back up like reading did and wigan to an extent as well. hopefully your right though. goals are key and they dont have a ten plus scorer in there. when kenwyn jones returns he will find it more difficult than he did the uyear before. diouf may chip in but they defo need goals.
