I know I'm outnumbered, but I'm gonna say it anyway: I just don't see Ramos doing it for us. What's his excuse for the results of late? We've taken 8 points out of a prospective 21 which just isn't good enough, and he seems to be blaming the club. If he's truely a great manager he should be able to get the best out of all his players, not just be given the money to build a new team, he's been there long enough to have an effect now but it hasn't been positive so far. Can you think of any player who's been playing to their best ability in the last few months?
That said I won't consider 7th place a progression for next season, I see this year as a blip and last season is the one to improve on. Last season I was livid that we got knocked out of the UEFA cup, I felt we massively outplayed every team we were up against, and that's the cup I want to see up win (and think should be easiest for us to take), as well as getting back to 5th place - realistically I don't see us breaking the top 4 next season.
