I literally can not see where they will drop points. They’re just too good. It’s so f**king annoying.
They only have to draw one game, and we're back in pole position.
As well as the tough schedule they have, 3 of their last 4 games are away from home. Not every opponent they face will be as feeble as Fulham and Cardiff. We went into the last two games in 86 needing Everton to slip up. They did. In 1990, we needed Villa to surrender a 3-1 lead in the last 15 minutes, for us to win the title then, against QPR. They did.
It's the run in. The pressure increases. So-called "bankers" can become "banana skins". Soft penalties, sitters missed, slip ups, red cards, own goals in the last minute, anything can happen. It takes 9 months to build a title challenge, but it can be over in 9 seconds flat. Everybody thought we wouldn't win this game with 5 minutes to go, people were leaving the ground, and saying things on message boards. We won and the future looks considerably brighter. That's the emotional rollercoaster of the run in.
