      Bournemouth could be a tricky game for them because they are not a bad team and i believe play pretty well at home, but beyond that their schedule (on paper) is a cakewalk (Watford / Fulham / Cardiff / Palace) until they play Spurs in late Apr.

      Palace away is never easy for any team, I'm amazed when I saw Manure win 3-1 yesterday, I honestly have that down as a possible slip up for City

      I’m honestly ignoring them.

      Keep picking up as many points as we can and that’s all we can do.

      Pretty much where I am mate.

      Like I said to Billy in the other thread we win 10 games and we win the league.

      Depends which Palace turns up. Chalk and Cheese. They can be piss poor one week, and quite formidable the next. Fingers crossed city get the latter.  ;D

      I’ll likely get rounded on for saying this, but I will.

      I could care less about the Champions League this year.  Wouldn’t mind if we go out of it in Munich.

      Would put all of the focus on the league.

      At the end of the day if going out of the CL helps us win the PL I am all for it!

      But it is the manner of which we go out I think that really counts if, at all, I think if we can keep the momentum going and make it all the way to the final that would be great and help us in our quest to the PL title more than getting knocked out.

      If we were to get knocked out it would have to be after giving it our all and not being underwhelming as that could lead to morale lowering and the confidence in the team lowering also.

      I understand your point.

      Maybe I’m a bit paranoid about our squad depth.  Would like to be fresher with our squad as strong as possible for our league matches.

      I know it may seem like a defeatist attitude but, it’s just the way I look at it.

      This team & squad are good enough for tow games a week, we need to be playing at the highest level to keep our focus..

      We’re going to win both.

      I think playing for these two competitions is what players dream off, I think players will be fine having to place both sets of games and still maintain their fitness.

      Imagine it, Jürgen Klopp's reds win the double (the only double that counts)!

      If we get defeated in the CL, we will have more long breaks between games, and so far we know this doesn’t bode well for our form after the breaks.
      Stay in both comps and keep everyone tuned into match day, not f**king holiday.

      If/When Europe has to get by without us, the talk wont be about the latest fake "blessing in disguise" here. It will be about a radical overhaul of the team, squad, tactics, signings, nerves, bottlers, Klopp's record in cups and the usual lines that get trotted out after every game we don't win.

      This thread has not been active for the past 5 years, as we have been breaking sweat trying to finish top 4, allowing us to play at the top table of European football. Now we have it, we shouldn't chuck it away asap. Are Real saying they should? Bayern? Barca? Juve? No side with serious ambitions is prepared to sacrifice Europe for the league title. Neither should we.

      Don’t think there are that many who would throw it, my biggest gripe with tpm was him throwing the towel in against Real .

      Usually only scrape a win there in recent years, fair few draws. Don’t care how it happens, 3 points is just an absolute must.

      Another lucky 1-0 win for city. First they get a pen that never was in a million years to scrape past west ham. Now the jammiest goal to beat Bournemouth. Boruc could have caught it in his sleep. Well I be delighted with a 94th minute winner tomorrow. To see Guardiola today at end you think they already won the league

      you referring to 85-86 season?

      Has no bearing on this season at all. Club name and fanbase born prior to then is the only thing the same. The sentiment is nice though

      They won’t drop another point if every team they play are as gutless as a Bournemouth, we just need to make sure we win our remaining games.
