Direction of the Club

Long time reader, but maybe my second or third post ever... love the site! Anyways, I wanted to get everybody's opinion on the direction of the club. It just seems to me to have a more positive feel than it has in the past. We've got one of the best (non-established) coaches in the market, the hottest commodity in the world in Bale, we've just signed Paulinho, and we seem fairly certain to sign a striker of reasonable repute (either Villa or Soldado, etc.). Not only that, but we are being linked to big money moves for Croatian wonderkids, our youth squad is dominating matches, and we have one of, if not the best, academy program in England. It just seems much different than in years past. Going into last year I didn't expect us to really challenge for Top 4, but going into this year, if we keep bale and make several key signings, I think we have an outside shot at a title run. Furthermore, if we get top 4 and sell Bale next year, the influx of cash we will be looking at is truly preposterous. What are everyone else's thoughts on the subject?
