      Points for the title?
      Jan 30, 2019 08:57:50 am
      As it stands right now the max City can get is 98 points.  So 99 points wins it.

      We can get a maximum of 105 points from our remaining games.

      But with City losing 3 of their last 7 league games, against Palace, Leicester and Newcastle then they don't look much likely to win their last 14 games.

      So basically, what kind of points total do you think we need to realistically get?

      I'm thinking low 90's?

      I said a few weeks ago that I felt 95 wins the title which at the time still gave us wriggle room of dropping another 10 points for a team that's only lost 1 in the league so far

      I tend to agree with you now though and think it may well be 92/93 that would win it

      In our hands this

      We Just have to keep winning.

      City have 3 tough games coming up, they might drop points again.

      Its all good.

      95 points does it for me. 101 would be amazing, but would be very difficult when CL returns.

      If we win tonight we can afford 3 draws, or 2 losses.

      Given how well we have been playing and scraping wins in those hard bus parking games, I think thats doable, add to that city will probably drop more points, its looking very good. :-)

      I’ve just filled in our results on a predictor site.
      I was honest (some of you would say pessimistic 😂)
      A loss to the Mancs
      Draws against the BS Burnley Spuds Chavs and soton.
      The machine picked all the other teams results.
      We end up on 92
      And win by 3

      I think City have another 2 losses and 2 draws in them, which means they will finish on 88 if my maths hasn't failed me there. Anything above 90 and the title is ours I reckon.

      I’m hoping we have it wrapped up end of March..City are now vulnerable against Arsenal,Chelsea & United, they are chasing us & are likely to slip up again..

      We just need to focus & go undefeated till end of Feb.... I reckon 85 points should do it..

      I think we have to assume that City win all remaining 14 games, think anything less and we risk taking things for granted. So, on that basis we will need, 99(?) points providing we win tonight...think that’s right anyway, maths never was my strong point.

      Lets say we win another 11, draw 2 and lose 2 we end up on 95 points.

      Without jinxing us, can I see us even losing two games when after 23 games we have only lost once and that being away to the current champions?

      Not a hope do we win the league with 85 points by the way.

      That would mean City only winning less than 10 games of 14 remaining.

      Considering we've beat (not even a single draw) every team we've played outside the top 5 this season and we only have 2 teams left to play inside the top 5 (Spurs and Chelsea at home), there aren't a lot of games on paper that we should we losing points in.

      The way I see it, City is capable of dropping another 3-6 points. So it's about 92 or 93 for me.

      I just spied on blue moon. And there's pretty serious talk about their players looking knackered. 

      Assuming this plays out on on the pitch, I can see them losing at least one and drawing or losing another. That makes 92, or 93 at best for them.

      Honestly thought the winner might have to push City's tally last season - what was it, 101?

      With them losing last night and having a few tricky fixtures it could be less now.

      Still think it's going down to the last few games, whatever happens tonight. Hopefully we can set a relentless pace and pile the pressure on them to win every single game.

      I always felt that 95 was going to be the magic number for us and with Citeh dropping points last night we are getting closer to that number but looking at their recent form and games they are playing it could be low 90's.

      For 2/3 of the season so far City have been running at 2.33 pts a game which would give them 89 pts so 90 pts would be enough for us.

      In my opinion I think City will divert attention to the domestic cups & CL..I’m not saying they are throwing in the towel but chase is far too much for them whilst they entertain the cups..

      Plus we’re living rent free in Pep & City’s head...😎

      I do not give a sh*t about points. We need just one point above everyone. I would be happy if it is 105, 96, 85, etc We just need to win 14 out of 15 games and we're fine.

      They have a lot of games in Feb, eve with their massive squad, it takes its toll playing so many games.

      I'm f***in sh*te at matgs,  see, Can't even f***in spell it, anyhoo simplest equation is Shitty need to win every f***in game they have left and hope that we don't,  and even then its not guaranteed, 

      A win tonight gives us a 7 point gap, that for me is too much to overhaul,  there's no way City will go the whole hog without dropping anymore points, no way, they couldn't handle the pressure of a mid week clash against a bottom feeder, how will they handle HAVING to win against a bigger fish ?

      96 seems appropriate enough,  so if there exists a god up there he'll see to it that's where we'll finish.
