"On attendait mieux de vous" - why wouldn't

this be reflexive, as it expresses expectation?

This relates to:
Attendre quelqu'un vs s'attendre à quelque chose = to wait vs to expect -

Bonjour Susan,

S'attendre can only be used with à plus a verb or noun. Mieux is an adverb and therefore does not fit that construction.

This makes sense, now that you've explained it.
Tnx, s.
