      If we win our next three, we will be favorites in  my opinion.

      That would be our only two remaining games against Big Six opposition out of the way and a very tricky trip to Southampton done.

      City will then go into a two week period with three games against Spurs, United away and two difficult trips to Palace and Burnley.

      I mean, points on the board can't be taken off (well, unless you do something really screwball) but you sure can screw up a game in hand.

      I'll take the points.

      It does really all depend on the situation.

      I mean say we were playing Wolves on the last day two points behind and City had all their games played.

      I'd bite your hand off for that right now.

      Burnley who beat Spurs there? Burnley who went to Old Trafford and drew?

      Burnley who drew with City there last season when City got 100 points?

      Wouldn't call it easy mate.

      I would, City are on another level than Spurs etc... they are on Barcelona and PSG level etc... No result is 100%, but it's like Brazil v Panama in terms of quality. It's about time FA stopped clubs from being like City, eventually we could be like SPL and same team winning every season.

      They’re a great side but they’ve still lost to Palace, Leicester and Newcastle this season.

      No reason why Burnley or Palace (again) couldn’t take points off them.

      If Citeh are so good how do you explain the games they have lost this season? Whatever answer you give apply that to their remaining games and explain how it won't happen again.

      Think we will drop points as well before season over so think city will have to drop points in two games. But who knows. I think spurs might take a point off them.

      Mate, I hope it doesn't come down to that, shitting myself already about that Wolves game. Hope it's dead and buried by then and we are already crowned Champions!

      I think you’d rather be the team who is in control of the race. I don’t think it necessarily matters whether you have the points in the bag or have the games in hand to get you the points to take you to the top (although this does bring a bit more pressure). I’d rather be in City’s position with a game in hand to take them clear at the top than our position at the moment, we can only hope the pressure gets too much for them.

      Think it's going to go down to the wire personally, but, the 3 games city have against spurs and then Man u might swing it our way.

      Fingers crossed.

      If we win all our games we will be Champions of England ,Europe and then the World.
      We just need to keep the pressure on City and if they will all of their games then so be it

      After the experience during the season run in, of having the points in the bag and waiting for results we couldn't influence and didn't materialise, I wonder if some have changed their view and would prefer to have the games in hand now?

      With the Club World Cup on the horizon then basically we're going to have to put up with the games in hand.  Likely that we'll have a couple of them even as winter is coming to an end.
