      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.

      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.

      Don't fool yourself. City can start a winning streak any time. They lost their games by freak incidents. We on the other hand took advantage of freak incidents (Pickford, Mahrez penalty, Sturridge goal). That can change any day. And injuries can happen as well. It's still wide open, it's just that now we got a real shot, I'd think our odds are about 55-45...still 14/15 games to play, that's a hell lot of football left. So let's begin today with 3 points against Leicester and go from there.

      They raised the bar last season, but they are playing more matches than we are, so expect them to lose some more, 95 points or even less could win it.

      I reckon we'll drop a max of 8 points, I can see us losing a game and having a few draws, but I also see Citeh losing a few games so we should be fine but who knows.

      First things first just win today, that is extremely important to pile pressure and misery on Citeh.

      95; should do it. 11 wins, 2 draws, 2 defeats, with hopefully one after we've locked it up.

      Every year, the contenders who don't win, don't because they drop points to lower teams.

      Extrapolate the current situation mathematically and we get 90 points to win it. 56 points / 24 games x 38 games = 89 points.

      Halfway mark 44 points / 19 games x 38 games = 88 points.

      Get to 90 points with a few games to spare and we're in with a fighting chance.

      Of course this is all based on historical data for this season. Past performance is not indicative of future performance.

      These are City’s next 3 fixtures..Anyone that think they cannot drop points against these 3 need to give their head a wobble..they have also a cup final & CL to think about too..

      3 games in 7 days will take its toll..

      Sunday 3rd February
      Arsenal

      Wednesday 6th February
      Everton

      Sunday 10th February
      Chelsea

      We just need to keep our focus..

      I think we will have an unassailable lead when we hit 96 points. We will have it won then, but will continue to overhaul their total of 100 points last season.
      That’s my dream anyway 😁

      I think there are going to be a few more bumps with us and City both dropping unexpected points. Both teams are capable of winning all their remaining games but I think it’s unlikely.

      94 points will do it I think.

      Just win every game until the League is ours and then win some after that as well.

      This is the only way to go,just carry on winning matches and let City do the worrying.

      As the points stand now 5 points seems to flatter us in that I believe City will end the season with a better GD than we will.

      If that is the case we can afford to lose 1 game now if City win every game from here on in.

      A defeat and a draw from us could result in City taking the league on GD.

      It's a very small 5 point lead in that respect.

      I think we will win our next 2 but if City keep pace with us I have to question how we will handle the pressure as a whole club after seeing some of the nervy scenes on and off the pitch against Leicester.

      Interesting, its obviously a very rough calculation and doesn't take into account dips in form and trends etc but using that calculation we should end up with 96 points, Citeh 88 and Spurs 85, that would mean we win with a couple of games in hand, yes please I'd take that! :-)

      In reality anything can happen but I simply cannot imagine that any of those 3 will go unbeaten to the end and if they do then they fully deserve the title, I have high hopes that when we get our main defenders back we will regain our defensive solidity again and our attackers are more up to speed now than at the start of the season plus we now have Fabinho fully integrated with Keita coming along so it should all be good.
      I still fancy us to win but its important we keep or increase the gap to Citeh, I'm not sure how well we'd do if we are under pressure and slip behind.

      With 14 games to go including this weekend, you have to ask yourself whether City can win of all of theirs - something that looks unlikely this season.

      Id say somewhere in the region of 10/11 wins will be enough to get us over the line.

      I think if we beat City and Leicester, we'd be 13 points clear instead of 5. 5 points is wide open, hopefully Arsenal can beat them and we can go 8 clear if we beat west ham.

      we dropped 11/72 points. Must be around 15% as a guess. If we carry on the same we'll drop around 17/114 and have 97 points at the end. Is that enough?

      Lets hope Rafa can do a number on Spurs...least the two divers Kane and Dele the Diver are still on the sick.

      I don't like Pochettino, he knows a bit to much for my liking. He doesn't overload the team with tactics, plays attacking football.Lets the players ply their trade. Get the spirit in the camp right, motivation. Given enough money he will make Spurs a force for the foreseeable future.

      There still over 40 points to play for. Spurs keep getting late late winners so now there on our coat talis too. This league will go right to may. For me there are no favourites. Liverpool and City are panicking already. The supporters should dampen down expectations putting pressure on players. Still think city will win it unfortunately. I hope I'm wrong. Spurs are winning now very late each match n Ali n kane will soon be back.

      Look there 42 points up for grabs. The league will not be decided till May. Spurs won again another winner in last few minutes now only 4" behind. These muppets saying oh were guna win league same ones said we were guna win League under Rodgers 4points up 3to play and still didn't. Same with CL final we were supposed to have won before the final. Pipe down. This pressure saying we're going to win is getting down to the players. One game at time. Anyone of city spurs or us can win this.

      Points?

      96 would be fab of course but if it has to be .... then it just has to be one more than second place.

      Just like to throw in the mix that if Stevie were also to get the Gers over the line and win the title up North then it would be be perfect.
      He may not have won the title and a medal with his club of life but he will also be there in spirit with us on the last day of the season.

      To stuff Rodgers would be extra special for us and him.

      That was a 40 game season as well mate. So this could very well turn out to be our best 38 game season, both points wise and trophywise. (currently stands at 86 from 08-09)
