Only lost 1 league game all season. Superb.
It’s not how many games you lose in a season, it’s how many you win and despite City having lost 3 more games than us, they’ve won an extra 2 and a as a result, now have the title in their hands instead of chasing us.
We lost just 2 games in 08/09 and didn’t win the league, there’s every chance now that we could only lose 1 game this season and not win it again.
I’d happily swap a couple of draws for defeats if it meant we’d have had an extra couple of wins as well.
Quite often it’s the draws that cost a team the title and as it stands, that is once again the case for us.
Though, I doubt they’d have ever been a team to get the points total we are in for, lose 1 game and still not win the league. It’s just our rotten luck that when we finally get so far ahead of everyone in the league and get such a points tally, it’s along with one other team.
For what it’s worth, it’s not the games vs Spurs or the Mancs where I think there is a chance City could drop points, I think the best chance of it happening is when they visit Palace.
