How optimistic are you for this season?

Obviously being on our United board this is a question for United supporters, but generally how optimistic are you for the season ahead?

Personally I'm actually pretty optimistic we'll do well and surprise a lot of people.

Reading on sites like BBC, Guardian, dare I say it Daily Mail sports pages I'm reading a lot of doom and gloom and that we'll simply finish 6th again but I think we'll finish higher than that and have a good cup run or two. How much would I get if I better a tenner on United to finish 1st? Probably over 200 quid ha.

Anyway, as is tradition, the star system!

Vote 5* for very optimistic, we're gonna win a trophy (any trophy)
Vote 4* for kind of optimistic, probably no trophies though but finish well
Vote 3* for average, maybe a decent cup run, scrape the top 4?
Vote 2* for not very. No decent runs, maybe a few more PTS than last season
Vote 1* for not at all. Repeat of last season incoming.

For me I'm gonna be a glass half full kind of guy and go 5* (until we possibly get beat by Brighton then it's back to doom & gloom)

I'm optimistic that will play good football, but without 2 or 3 more signings we're going to be frustrating to watch as we fail to take chances and concede silly goals.

As it stands if we don’t buy anymore then minimum for me is top 6 and at least the semis of the Europa

If we get FDJ and Ziyech then minimum for me should be winning the Europa. League position fairly irrelevant if we do

I just don’t think Wesley De Jong is going to happen. There really should be/should have been alternatives.

Arsenal looked decent yesterday, Don't see us overtaking them so most likely 6-8th area again with current squad but with more coherent football than last year. Does feel like we are turning into a upper mid table club slowly.

its frustrating we haven't made more signings but i prefer the club take time to get in the right players. We cant risk signing more AWB's, Maguires etc..

We’ll find out one way or another as Barca now can’t register their players so he surely has to go. Us or Chelsea. Hopefully this week

I think there probably are tbh. We'll likely find out in due course as FDJ is not looking promising

We will indeed. 13th is La Liga deadline for registering players according to Sky last week.

It will be very interesting to see who they don’t register.

Look on the bright side. Our rivals Wolves, Leicester, Villa, Everton and Brentford all dropped points and even West Ham are currently losing. Newcastle admittedly could be a problem.
