What Are Your Expectations for Your Favorite Premier League Club?

With the continuing separation between the have and the have nots in the Premier League, I think that it is curious to ask fans about what they expect from their clubs.  Obviously, every fan wants their club to win and be successful, but in this current era in which the top of the EPL consists of the usual suspects, not every club has a reality of winning the league.  With league titles out of reach for the likes of Wigan and Stoke, what do their fans cheer for?

This goes beyond mere expectations, but more what makes you feel positive about your club and its future.  For those of you in the States who follow college football, I am a fan of the Iowa Hawkeyes.  The Hawkeyes are typically a solid team with very few stars.  But my expectations for them is that if they compete for a league title every four years and go to a major bowl game every three years, I feel very positive about the direction that the program is heading.  If the Hawkeyes can meet those expectations consistently, as a fan I can deal with those seasons when the record is not up to par.

So what are your expectations for your favorite clubs?  When you respond, please make sure that there are specifics.  For example, a fan may have the expectations for Manchester United:

  1. Finish in the top 3 of the Premier League every season
  2. Compete for the title every other season
  3. Reach the quarter finals of the Champions League

I want to hear from you.
