    I cannot see the top 3 not faltering at some stage against the relegation threatened teams fighting for survival.

    Imagine if all three teams make the CL semi final

    For the record the most competitive league title chase was in 1971/72 when Derby won the league with 58 points and Liverpool, Arsenal and Leeds all finished on 57 points.

    Fuck that’s nuts.

    Did it go down to the last game?

    Still would have been only a title win in the 80 something mark so more a case of no extradordinary team or were there less teams then?

    I've no idea what you mean in that last paragraph...

    I think it was only two points for a victory then, wasn't it?

    Yes I mean if you converted the 2 pointers to 3 then 58 would end up somewhere in the low. 80’s.

    Well the top four teams finished with one point separating them, so they must have dropped points against each other. Was there not shit loads of teams in the top flight then?

    Ya I dunno hence the question but definitely competitive with 4 teams in with a realistic shout up until the end

    Jesus.

    Back then the league was probably MORE competitive as the league wasn't the reserve of a big 4 or 6 clubs. Just about any club in the top division could win it ... overall it was much more even. It was probably us who started to break that mould, but, even then, teams like Forest & Villa took titles during our dominance

    Jesus Christ what is wrong with you ? How difficult is it to read a fixture list ? This is what you wrote so NO you did not list every Top 6 fixture remaining :

    http://www.sixcrazyminutes.com/inde...ve-title-race-in-history.132490/#post-1785301

    For them you did not list United away and you also said they are away at Spurs last match of the season .. they aren't, they have another 3 matches after that.

    For us you didn't mention we have a home game against Chelsea.

    Fuck me, have I somehow landed on Blue Moon ? And you too Fabs.
