what your club expects this season

What would constitute success this season?

Success for Leeds would be to cement themselves in the division, a clear six to 10 points above the relegation zone consistently.

Who is the unknown or little-known player at your club who could have a big impact this season?

Difficult as many of the new signings are little known, but I’ll go with Crysencio Summerville – a very exciting Dutch winger who could start to see game time this year.

What game are you most looking forward to?

The biggest game of the season for Leeds will always be Manchester United at home.

Which game do you dread more than any other?

Manchester City away. They seemed to take the loss against us a few seasons ago personally, just to keep the score low this season would be an achievement.

Are you satisfied with the owners of your club?

Any cons should be weighed against the great job they have done to promote us. That said, the mistakes of the previous summer cost us Marcelo Bielsa and almost our Premier League status. I’d like to see them engage more with fans and avoid controversial decisions like associating with socios or post-season Myanmar tour. 6/10

What aspect of your club’s off-pitch operations concerns you the most?

Lack of fan engagement. A little humility and cooperation and I imagine the club would be able to offer the fans more of what they want and in doing so would benefit both parties much more. A lack of real engagement with the Supporters Advisory Group or the Leeds United Supporters Trust has led to unnecessary mistakes and missed opportunities.

Where do you see your club in 10 years?

The stated ambition of the board is to fight for the top six in that time frame. To do this, I think we would need to recruit more regularly and invest in expanding the stadium. It’s not impossible, but getting into the Premier League’s top six will require a lot more investment, as well as a healthy dose of luck. I see the club as at least a strong first half team over the next decade.


THE CITY OF LEICESTER

Graham Tracey, Foxes Trust

Are you satisfied with the manager?

Truly, Brendan Rodgers clearly oversaw the most successful period in our history. It is therefore disappointing that a large number of fans are against him. I’m sure our next manager would be unable to replicate his accomplishments. 8/10

What would constitute success this season?

Optimism is thin on the pitch at the moment, given that we are yet to sign a single signing, despite Rodgers’ spring hopes for a ‘refresh’. Despite everything, aiming for Europe via our ranking in the league is within our power.

Who is the unknown or little-known player at your club who could have a big impact this season?

There are few things more heartening than a homegrown lad getting good, making Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall feel-good story last season, as Luke Thomas’ first game in front of the fans being the final of the FA Cup was the previous season.

What game are you most looking forward to?

A New Year’s trip to Liverpool seems an attractive end to the year.

Which game do you dread more than any other?

After the players let us down on the pitch and the fans let us down on the pitch at Nottingham in the FA Cup last season, there is a downside to a league return to the City Ground.

Apart from your own club, which other club do you most admire in the Premier League and why?

Liverpool. My wife is a season ticket holder so I can’t avoid their story. The atmosphere, the connection to the community and the way Jürgen Klopp makes the culture and history of the city his own is perfect for me.

Excluding your traditional rivals, which club do you hate the most in the Premier League and why?

Newcastle United. Shame on anyone comfortable with property links.

Are you satisfied with the owners of your club?

Khun Vichai is truly forever in our hearts, just like Khun Top who so nobly continued his father’s commitment. 10/10

What aspect of your club’s off-pitch operations concerns you the most?

There is not much to criticize about LCFC. A usual gripe would be the prohibitive price of the shirts, and a new gripe would be the move to digital-only tickets – an alienating move for some.

Where do you see your club in 10 years?

Our near-liquidation memoir 20 years ago reminds us of how far from disaster you are but a bad manager or owner. So if we can maintain our recent level over a decade, that will bring many days to hold.


LIVERPOOL

Ted Morris, Liverpool Disabled Supporters Association

Are you satisfied with the manager?

10/10

What would constitute success this season?

A successful season would always be judged by winning at least one trophy.

Who is the unknown or little-known player at your club who could have a big impact this season?

I think Harvey Elliot will come into his own this season if he doesn’t get injured.

What game are you most looking forward to?

I always look forward to playing against Manchester United, they are our real rivals.

Which game do you dread more than any other?

To be honest, I don’t fear any game, it’s up to the opposition to fear us – Liverpool style.

Are you satisfied with the owners of your club?

The manager is happy with the owners of the club and that’s what matters. 8/10

What aspect of your club’s off-pitch operations concerns you the most?

The main concern has always been fan engagement. I believe they are in the process of addressing this so I don’t have any major concerns with the owners.

Where do you see your club in 10 years?

It’s hard to answer. Football will continue to evolve in the next decade but I have no reason to doubt that we will always be among the best in Europe.


MANCHESTER CITY

Ric TurnerBluemoon

Are you satisfied with the manager?

I couldn’t be happier, to be honest. He is arguably the best coach in the world right now and has completely transformed our club. We are lucky to have him. 10/10

What would constitute success this season?

I think keeping our title, making it three in a row, would make for a successful season. Obviously, winning the Champions League has been a long-standing goal for the club, but cup competitions often require a certain degree of luck, while winning your domestic league over 38 games represents a greater achievement.

Who is the unknown or little-known player at your club who could have a big impact this season?

Much of the attention this summer has been on the arrival of Erling Haaland, but Julián Álvarez is an incredibly exciting prospect. At just £14million, he could be one of the bargains of the season.

What game are you most looking forward to?

Liverpool (h).
