What arsenal did that year was class... but they did draw 12 games and finished with 90 points. We might/might not lose some games this year, but I don’t think we’ll drop points in 12 games and think we’ll get more than 90 points.

Not to criticize what they did that year- it was class, but not something they should be wanking about 15 years later.. what we did last year and what city did the last 2 years was a lot bigger. It’s just bitterness- same as if we win the league and champions league, united fans will say it’s not the treble...

Still pisses me off that last year we only lost 1 league game, City lost 4, and we still didn't win.

The best thing that will have happened to this team is last season.

We know nothing short of perfection will do.

What I really like about this team is we win every way, lucky, late, steamroller, grinding, free flowing. We have the potential to do all of this to teams.

Could have it won before the end of March though. I think that would require 6 points off City though.
This will go down to the wire imo

City are having their little stumble and sooner or later we will have one

Just watched a Sky Sports video, with Neville and co saying it's ours to lose.

We're in October, with 30 games to go.

I thought United would win the title before we do?

Right, jinx incoming.

I've booked the weekend off for the last two weekends of the season in case we pick up the title at the last home game (Chelsea), or at the last away game (Newcastle).

Next, I'll be booking a hotel room for both weekends, refundable rate.

Sorry guys

Us 'losing it' rather than 'winning it' suits Neville's agenda more but both mean that we're in control of our destiny

Nope. It's far too early and eight points can be easily wiped off at this stage of the season.

Many of us oldies remember 1985/1986 when United won their first 10 matches and were 12 points ahead of us after 10 games

We won the league that season just pipping Everton, I think United finished 3rd or 4th thats season miles off the pace

In fairness football has changed quite a bit since then, for the worse.

We may well need close to three figures (it wouldn't surprise me if City won their last nineteen games). They won their last 14 last year. Consistency like this is whats needed these days with City around.

Its been a great start but we need to continue the form deep into next year.

Somewhere in the nineties will probably win the league, its been 93, 100, 98 in the last three years.

The Independent has taken the prize for the most unreadable website on the internet - worst, even than the Echo. So I won't copy and paste this.

But here is a link to an article on the title race.

Well then the loss will be ours, no one else's so he's right.

No one else is in this position and we can win it if we drop less than 7 points more than the next placed team.
