      Still pinching myself, on top with a 9 point gap.
      We've won the CL and other trophies - but there is nothing else in football I've wanted to see us win more, than the title.
      Have been waiting 3 decades.
      Don't even want to say it out loud, but what would I not give for this to be the season..

      Saints now even with City at 1-1.

      Game started all City, but Southampton have grown into it. I still expect City to get three points here but...they do not look themselves.

      Even if we lose we're still 4 points ahead. City has to play to win which plays in our hands. It's like we lead 1-0 from the beginning. Dream constellation for every coach, let alone our Godfather.

      It’s like a game in hand. And there’s pressure for city to win it all. They really do look vulnerable at times.

      What December has taught us is that we're a f**king good football team.

      Now the challenge is to push on and keep the same intensity in the New Year.


      What a December. Clean f**king sweep. Well done lads. Brilliant!

      Well I suppose scoring 12 goals in 3 games is classed as progress even taking into consideration the weak teams we have played. I still think under Solskjaer the wrong move though. It's a quick fix but that is all.

      Momentum in the camp is building and some moral back in order. However, listening to our caretaker manager he just doesn't give me any confidants, his ability to defend looks rather wayward to say the least. Granted he's making the lads go forward with the ball more instead of us back passing on a regular bases under Mourinho. It's quite a refreshing change playing what used to be called the United way.

      What does piss me off though is players playing for themselves rather than the team. None more so than my favourite player  Pogba.  :f_steam: It's blatantly obviously he down tools for Mourhino. You can argue Mourhino only had himself to blame due to his record with Chavs and often calling his players in public rather than the professional way which we all know is behind closed doors.

      Still, it's better than it was and not so depressing anymore. Im under no illusions though, it's going to be very very hard to get back to the top looking the way you lads and City are playing if you rule out Decembers form for City.

      All the best for the New Year David.

      Lets put aside the last match, we did really well, a big applaude to the lads. But that ain't enough to win us the league. Long way to go, starting with City. It will be a do or die match for City and they know that. Lets quickly regroup, stay 100% focus and see how to counter City. They are no mugs but just a blip, they are still a very strong contender for the title. If we could sustain the momentum, we will be in very good position for the final lap when Gomez and Ox back in the team.

      We look comfortable but the difference between winning and losing Thursday is being 4 points or 10 points clear of City after the game, so I really hope we don’t go in too relaxed, 10 points pretty much gives you 3 or 4 chances to f**k up the rest of the season, which would be huge!

      I agree, it must be bloody annoying to have so many players who basically put in minimum effort as long as Maureen was in charge, but now are suddenly reborn, that to me is like a big 2 finger salute to all the paying fans. Even when it was going tits up under Brendan Rodgers I never has the feeling that the players were giving anything less than 100% effort, it was just a case of some bad signings and iffy tactics etc.
      I think Ole has had an incredibly easy set of games, but he admits that himself, the real test will be in the next 2 games, Newcastle and Spurs, win those convincingly and you may well be bale to rescue the season, but I still think you have a crap defence although lots of talent in midfield and attack.

      I have a feeling that the match on Thursday might be as tight and tense as the one at Anfield with neither side wanting to lose. I'd happily take a draw at the moment and I suspect Citeh would as well.
      Having said that they are beatable, I have noticed that they have become very reliant on Sterling this season, with a lot of attacks going through him, I think if we can stifle him, which we have done in almost every game, then we can gain an advantage plus their defence is not up to our level, nor is their keeper.
      Will be a very interesting game with Citeh torn between attack and trying not to lose.

      Not so sure I agree with Newcastle but most definitely Spurs. I don't think we can make top four though, that's  asking to much but great if we can. Defensively yes we still have problems there. Need a good Janaury transfer window.  :D

      Happy New Year mate.

      I would love it to be there for the parade. Given our last game of the season is at home vs Wolves on the 12th of May on a Sunday, any ideas when would the parade be happening?

      It's difficult to say when the parade will be at this point because they'll have to hold off until the FA Cup and European Cup are over with as we'll be in both finals of those competitions as well, with the FA Cup final on the 18th May and the European Cup one not until the 1st June. So the actual parade could be the 2nd of June, if it's like 2005 where they have it the day after we win old Big Ears again. I can't see the council allowing more than one homecoming, so they'll have us parade all three around the city in one go rather than one for the League and then another one for all three.

      I hope they do some the route as 2005 because the fact that they went primarily to just three areas made the day even more enjoyable. Getting to actually soak it in and see the trophy rather than the 2001 treble homecoming when they just flew down the Dock Rd and it was all over within 10 seconds. 2005 was a night and an even better night than than us actually winning the European Cup in the first place because you could enjoy the entire day knowing we'd won.

      here's a comforting thought. Win our remaining 9 homes games 27 points takes us to 81 points so I reckon 3 more away wins would get us very close to the title

      Steady, steady.

      There's 17 games to go after City away. Trips across the road and another trip to mancland to deal with, tough games at home to Spurs and Chelsea during the run in. Not to mention other competitions to go for as well.

      I believe we will win the league, but we still have to go and win it. So it's premature at this stage to be planning parades. We don't need a formal parade though, a 12 month long celebration after winning it is perfectly acceptable.

      Gees gentlemen, untwist your knickers, please. A girl can surely dream and speak of it out loud.

      I am aware that we still have a long way to go, not counting no chickens and not getting carried away. I am patient and behind my team. I've been patient since 1998. One game at a time, I've learned that of course. But I also believe. Istanbul thought me that.

      And since we are top of the league, I'm simply enjoying it.

      So let's enjoy it without planning parades. The kind of talk that opposition fans use to say things about us. They still say them about the welcomes the coach got in our last title run in.

      Many of us, me included, have waited 29 years for the title to come home. So, we can wait another few months before the celebrations can begin.
