    We’ll win it simply because dreamy hasn’t put a bet on us so he can cash out just before the final games.

    How’s that for logic?

    I dont think City are capable of winning 18 games on the bounce. Their best run in the league this season is 7 consecutive wins without dropping points. Which suggests they will drop points in 2 or 3 more games, putting them around 91/92 points in total. So if we can get 31 points from the remaining 39 available we should win it.

    We also play the bottom 6. Beat all them and there is 18 out of the 31 you predict.

    There will be more twists and turns as both sides have to face Man U, Chelsea and spurs.

    We just need to match or better City’s results in these games.

    We are no longer top of the league.

    Only a few days ago many were lambasting those who dare to have a good moan. We have dropped lots of points recently and it all began after that silly Dubai trip.

    Let's try to beat Bournemouth first ok, which btw is no walkover, before we dream of the title again.

    If we’re good enough we’ll win it. All will be well, and all will be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Yet by the end of next weekend we could be 3 to 6 points clear.

    We are joint top of the league with a game in hand!

    Yes, and we have surrendered a 7 point lead with a whimper, within a short time.

    If we drop points against Bournemouth, we've got no one to blame except ourselves.

    3 of those were not surrendered. City played an extra game.

    Don't bother. To those of a negative mind-set that is a minor irrelevance to the rhetoric they wish to peddle. Ditto injuries have little to do with it, it's all down to nerves and inferior players.

    If we both win then we are actually in a nice position. City fans and the press talking as if we are level, whilst actually being 3 points off the pace still (or 2 inc. goal difference) - that might take a bit of the desire and hunger off mentally.... maybe

    Anyway - games against the bottom 6 will be challenging as they relegation battle hots up.

    You are such a drama queen.

    Here are some facts for you, all of which suggests that, taking the long view, City are going to drop more points and we are likely to return to consistent winning ways, a couple of draws, whilst suffering from an extensive injury list, is not indicative of a season's collapse merely a short term loss of form which should be rectified by returning players:

    Points dropped from Last 10 games : Liverpool 7 pts, City 9 pts, Spurs 6 pts.
    Last 6 games AWAY form : Liverpool 13 pts, City 9 pts
    Last 6 games HOME form : Liverpool 16 pts, City 15 pts
    Best Defensive Record : Liverpool 13 clean sheets and 15 goals conceded, City 11 clean sheets and 21 goals conceded.
    Liverpool have lost ONE match all season. City have lost FOUR matches this season.
    City's longest win streak this season 7 games. Liverpool's longest win streak 9 games.

    Whilst there is no law that says form will continue to follow the stats to date, they are however at least a prediction of what should be expected for the remainder of the season.

    We will all take comfort knowing that if we are targetting say 9 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss - the loss and draws aren't our next 3 results. A run of 3 or 4 wins on the bounce would set us up REAL nicely.

    Yes that's right everyone.

    Objectivity = drama queen.

    We'll all be calm again when we beat the cherries 3-0 and Chelsea beat City 3-0

    Whilst I admit I'm not 100% objective, I'm too optimistic a person for that (at least I try to temper my enthusiasm), you are at the very very far end of that scale where the world is always ending. You're, by far, one of the least objective people on these boards.

    But you're ignoring the basic fact that form is 100% based on the last two games, not 6 or 10 ;) That's what makes drama queens objective objectionable

    Mate, with all due respect, the fact that i do not take this forum nor anyone of you seriously gives me a pretty objective stance.

    Because i know when we have these sort of discussions in the pub or something, everything will be a lot different.

    6CM is the only place i get to be a drama queen. So let me be k.
