|Saints Two Players Short Of A Top 10 Team|
I admire your optimism. but lets not get carried away by beating a burnley side with more than half their first team missing.
I agree with your assessment of defence and midfield, and as you say, 2 quality players would improve us no end. Up front you say we have options. True. But they are not very good options. An injury to Ings, God forbid, or Adams, and we're knackered.
The very best we can hope for with 2 decent signings this week would be to finish where we ended up last season.
Forget the top 6. We're a million miles behind leicester and wolves. Sheffield utd will struggle this year, and burnley, once they have their players available will start to climb again. So that leaves us maybe 9th at best.
You then look at the teams that finished below us. Everton have improved massively, as have Newcastle. Both i feel will finish above us. A lot of other teams have also improved. Brighton for one have impress.
So even with your 2 new signings(and theres no guarantee they will be forthcoming) i feel the very best position we can achieve is staying around 11th.
As you say, the next few days are crucial. But to challenge for a top 10 finish , we're maybe 4 players short.
