The strong getting stronger, while the weak getting weaker.

Conserve energy in the slipstream then slip by at the end....

30 points is the new safety measure!

Leyton388 12-11-18 06:27 PM

If we get to 95 points and don't win the league it will be sickening.

Slinky Skills 12-11-18 06:30 PM

City will drop points and so will we. Just got to hope and believe that they drop more and I think they will.

just need to take it a game at a time and keep the pressure on, next 5 and half weeks we have 9 league games, 2 in Europe. If we can keep the gap at 5 or less i'd be happy

Buzzo 12-11-18 08:35 PM

We currently have the longest unbeaten home record in Europe with 27 games.

Next, Napoli on 11.

City on 10.

Hopefully we make it 28 with the next home being Everton...

They might have the odd hiccup against other teams as we might.
Who might actually beat them though...
There may be the odd fluke lower team beating them, and hopefully we can take points off them in head to head games.

Although we have been stuttering we are still in a good position without ever really clicking so hopefully our lads find some consistent form and we can become the attacking force that we were for most of last year.

Only one head to head to play against them, at theirs. Take a point and I'd be happy, get the win and it'd be great

Fredo 13-11-18 08:08 AM

I re-watched the game we played against City few weeks ago and we matched them all the way in that game. Both teams nullified each other but our quality on the day meant we are a match for them at the moment. The only difference with us is they bring that quality into games more often than us.

Scratch 13-11-18 09:01 AM

In terms of first 11, I think we more than match them, but our first 11 cover is not as good (especially cover for the front 3), meaning that when we rotate to keep the squad fresh, we struggle against teams we should be beating or we are too reliant on certain players and the tiredness starts to show in decision making. That's the benefit of inflated wages I guess, ou can lure good players who are happy to be benched half the time.

Rigadon 13-11-18 11:03 AM

The title is in our hands :D

I kind of agree with the quality squad depth, but not with the example as it doesn't play out in terms of considering 'teams we should be beating' as we've not lost to anyone in the League.

2 of our 3 draws have been our 2 toughest fixtures - the other Arsenal away.

We are beating the weaker teams. We are beating them pretty comfortably, all you can say is we are not beating them 4 or 5 nil.

PTP 14-11-18 12:43 PM

what will be really sickening is if we go the whole season unbeaten and finish 2nd :haha:

RedReet 14-11-18 01:33 PM

Neither team will go unbeaten IMO.

I genuinely didn't think any team could repeat, never mind better the feat achieved by Arsenal, bit City are more than capable of doing so.

I don't see it happening though, there will be at least one slip up. Lyon have already beaten them this year and Wolves gave them a run for their money. There will be at least one fluky result against them along the way or a team like us that shows up and is better on the day.

Charly 14-11-18 05:52 PM

If we are pushing them all the way, are they more or less likely to fuck up?

I dont see them as being mentally weak, and they have strength in depth. Massive ask just to keep pace.

It is. But the plan is always game to game but long-term i think our only hope would be to be in touching distance when Europe gets to the business end and they could well drop points there as the games get bigger. I don't think we'll go far in Europe this year unless we dive into the Europa.

If we do end up in the Europa then we're nailed on to go all the way to the final given our knack of making the finals that are impossible to get to. It's in Azerbaijan this season.

Arsenal invincibles got 90 points, if we were to get 95 unbeaten and City got 96 getting beat. Who becomes the best team? :D

Norbs 15-11-18 12:04 AM

History would say the team that came top

dizzycat 15-11-18 08:37 AM

It is looking like the refereeing could decide the title to me, it seems like it is the marginal things that are going to count this year.

Angryred 15-11-18 02:30 PM

Hard work, consistency & a bit of luck will get us there!...#keepbelieving!

Early days yet, lots can and will happen between now and the end of the season.

It's never worked for me! I'll copy this format for the next PL game thanks :)

The_weatherman 26-11-18 09:08 AM

Everton would love to be the first team to beat us, can see them being really difficult after our PSG game.

I copied a table off the BBC website and the columns seemed to be tab separated. Wrap the entire thing table tags and hey presto. I didn't expect it to work.

To add some right padding, add some hyphens and make them white.

Charly 26-11-18 01:29 PM

I dont think it works with tapatalk... its just an unbroken mess, like a defence containing Lovren, Matip, Moreno and Karius

Last time we had 33 points after 13 games we won the title. We were even able to win only 4 from the final 12 games that season and still be nine points clear :)

That is based on our most recent 38 games in the league?

Because if we take this season's league form we are looking at 96 or 97 points for us (depending on whether you round up or down) and 102 for City.

Yep.

So the last 25 games of last season combined with the 13 games of this.

Kenneth 26-11-18 05:53 PM

It's just cunt's law isn't it. When we're brilliant, there's another team who's even better. Looking at some of the dross man utd sides that won the league over the last 20 odd years, well its just harsh af.
