      The Spuds just got mashed.

      Yes. A win over the Arse would give a nine point cushion and overnight ten on City.

      Spurs are done, they are not consistent enough. It's between us and City and we lead them by 10 now. But it's still a long way. Easily possible City is going on a winning-streak and I can see us having some harder times after we got pretty lucky with Sturridge@Chelski, Mahrez vs. City or Origi vs. Everton. At some point we will have some bad luck and therefore our lead is so vital. Of course it's cool to dream about an unbeaten treble-winner.  :-*

      I keep saying to guard against overconfidence, but these performances make it hard to not think about winning it all.

      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.

      We don't have to win at City a draw will almost be as good as a win but we can put out 11 men on the pitch that will die for each other and that is the difference we haven't seen that for over 25 years

      This has been a fantastic period.   The thing is City now need to not only win but need to knock the confidence out of us.  A big win for them is required.   A draw would be bad for them.   If we win I think they if we can sustain the lead then their will be prioritising the Champions League.

      Ok, we’re going to win the league. We will beat City and every other team for more than 100 points this season.  :f_tongueincheek:

      Wow, we smashed December. Arguably the toughest time of year with all the games, as well as Europe and it’s where it’s actually all seemed to finally click for us. We’ve been smashing in the goals, completely dominated games and won every game.

      I'm really glad we went out of the league cup. That only makes it 5 matches in January, as opposed to 7 for the ones in league cup. Proper week' s rest for the lads is gonna do them wonders in the Feb run, when the CL kicks in.

      As much as I want to argue against your argument, I really see your point.

      We're increasing the lead :)

      9 straight League wins.
      Easily the best defence in the League.
      Second most potent attack, which is now coming into some real form.
      Best goal difference.
      Most wins.
      Fewest defeats.
      Most importantly, most points.

      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.
