We're on for 90+ points a year on from 75 and barring absolute catastrophe we're going to get more points in a season than United ever have in their history.

 

Nothing "fucked us up" and it's simply banal and stupid to say it did. That said, I just can't imagine City dropping any more points so have a very sanguine approach to it all. At least in Europe it's in our own hands.

The bookies are a solid measure of where things are at. They make them 55 percent likely to be champions. They would have been more than 60% before today.

 

My own feeling is that we have come through three horrible games with maximum points. We have banana skins left but i think we should win them all. They have a much nastier run in but as terrific as we are, they are arguably one of the top 3-4 teams to have played in this country. It's a real 50-50 coin toss imo.

The big problem we have is that I just don't see where City will drop points.

 

People go on about the United game, but United have got away games at Barcelona and Everton before City, and Chelsea at home after. I honestly think they will rest players in the City game, on the basis that they need to win against Everton and Chelsea more. Plus can you really see Solskjaer outwitting Guardiola?

What will they be resting players for? They will be out of Europe and have 2 or 3 games left after that.  Are they saving them for August? They're shit, our only hope is their pride and fans inspire them them to work their bollox off, as much as they would hate us to win the sightof City all but wrapping it up in their back yard would be hard to take.

I completely envisage City/United being this seasons version of City/Everton during the last run-in, where Everton fans were booing when their own team ever crossed the halfway line. I'm sure Old Trafford will be willing City on in that game - even if United could still get top 4 out of it. Their rabble is pathetic.

Thats very true.

 

It reminds me of the 09/10 La Liga where Barcelona finished on 99 points and Madrid on 96.

 

I'm not 100% on this, but i've read that if both us and City win all our games, 97 points will be a European record points haul for not winning the league.

They will prioritize the Chelsea game. Most United fans would rather City win the league than us.

They can’t afford to pick and choose. Especially if they go out to Barcelona.

They hate us more than City, but they have some level of pride in their club and won't let City come and take the piss. Everton have going from being a massive club to a mediocre small time one over the last 25 years. They exist to take joy in us not winning trophies rather than move forward as a club.

I think any shred of pride United fans think they have will vanish the moment they're faced with the prospect of the scousers winning the league. They've enjoyed success in the past decades but at heart they have tendencies that are every bit as small-time and bilious as the blues across the park. We'll see.

Only we could get to 97 points and still not win the league. Feels like we are fucking cursed when it comes to winning the league. 

a) we haven't got 97 pts yet and b) City haven't won it yet

 

I said a few weeks back I thought 95 was the number and I still think that's very possible.

I just don’t understand what some people get from being so negative. 

Maybe it’s down to being on the internet all day everyday, I don’t know.

Would you swap positions and fixtures with City? I would.

A very close call but I'm not sure I would.

I think the reality is, we're watching two absolute machines in their prime. If we finish second, it'll be to a monster of a performance by City to not only out pace us, but to retain the title - something nobody has done in a while. 

 

We've been excellent. Beyond our own expectations I'd suggest, so if it comes up short, that'll be disappointing (obviously), but the other outfit will have deserved it.

Interesting piece on MNF about Mane and how good he is from Carra. Neville basically saying Mane, Salah, Sterling and Mane are on a completely different level than the wide players when he was playing

Anubis meet Arsenal, Arsenal this is Anubis.

Yeah, I should know better. They almost let Cathcart equalise.
