      It would only be 2 games assuming we draw 1 per the scenario given.  Then assuming City & us both win the other 2 we'd have to gain 7 + whatever City win those 2 games by meaning 9, 10+ so its f###ing irrelevant. 

      You people's obsession with goal difference is mental at this stage.  Just win all 3 games left and hope City slip up is all we can do.

      No its not irrelevant, lets say we beat Huddersfield 6-0 and then beat Wolves 3-0 after drawing against Newcastle, if Citeh then lose 1 game 1 nil and win the others by 1 goal then we would beat them on goal difference.

      I agree that the most important thing is to win all 3 games but it doesn't hurt to think about the goal difference as well.

      In that (not happening) instance, we'd be level on goal difference having scored less so would still lose the title, unless we draw 4-4 with Newcastle and that's assuming City won 1-0, 1-0 (also not happening!). 

      If City won 2-1, 2-1, we'd have to draw 6 all with Newcastle, so can you please stop convincing yourselves that GD is relevant!

      I think the question is, say Huddersfield are stubborn for a bit and we go 2-0 up in the 65th minute. Do we go all out for 2-3 more goals for goal difference's sake or shut it down and take the 2-0? I think the reward for trying to score more is outweighed by the adversity of letting them back in the game through making ourselves vulnerable.

       Granted we are talking one scenario and fine percentages, but to me the three points are everything at this point.

      An interesting question, I think if we are "only" 2-0 up with 25 minutes to go then we just shut it down, protect the players etc

      No question about it; we don't need to improve our GD, just win all 3 matches.

      No don't force it,just keep playing as is. 3-0 up against Palace with 10 to go is a f**king lesson.

      A lot of rumours that he is missing for the season but I’ll bet he starts tonight.

      Rumours from the pub? The most reliable rumours are from launderettes.

      Seriously, I hope it isn't true.

      No idea why people read that sh*te, although it was funny t'other week when someone copied a post from there verbatim and got pulled on it  :laugh:

      We'll know about Firmino in less than an hour, so I'll put it on the back burner til then.

      If you’re at the match tonight, look out for the police horse they’ve renamed Oxberry in honour of Diane Oxberry, who died of ovarian cancer in January. Can I ask, as someone who has come through ovarian cancer, give this horse an extra special pat, and a sugar cube if you have one, for Diane and all of us who have been diagnosed with this dreadful disease.
