    Don't see that continuing once the schedule picks up and injuries start to happen. But I've gone ahead and bookmarked your words ;)

    It was also this time last season Chelsea went on that stunning winning run that set them up for the title if I remember correctly. Look, we're going to drop points along the way, some predictable and some infuriating. A point against Chelsea wouldn't be too bad, a win obviously would be superb. If we lose, then we go again next game.
     
  3. Obviously a draw would be okay in terms of contending for the title, but if we're tied with 20 minutes left, I hope the players are thinking "no f*cking way we're dropping points to this lot" instead of "no shame in a draw away at Chelsea". That attitude/arrogance was a big factor in United's 20 year domination of the league (along with spending a fortune on players and refs, of course...). It backfired at 3-1 down when we sick-swanned the bastards, but the number of games the stole from us in the last minutes (or after the last minutes) suggests it worked in their favor more often than not. The tw*ts.

    What a result!

    Next 3

    Stoke (H)
    Burnley (H)
    West Brom (A)

    As long as we are not complacent we should collect 9 points and significantly add to our goal difference.

    In their next 4 games united have got Liverpool (A) Chelsea (A) and Spurs (H) who are better away from home.

    Hopefully we can open up a small gap over the next few fixtures.

    Three draws would be nice

    Fair play to everyone who called it, complete opposite to last season, look like we're about to kick on.

    The key to the season will be the results between the top 6. No doubt.

    10 games each. 30 points to win.

    6/6 so far

    Last season 9/30.

    The next 2 months are going to be massive.

    City have Stoke, Burnley, West Brom, Arsenal, Leicester, Huddersfield.

    United have Liverpool, Huddersfield, Swansea, Spurs, Chelsea.

    Liverpool have United, Spurs, Huddersfield, West Ham, Saints, Chelsea.

    Spurs have Bournemouth, Liverpool, United, Palace, Arsenal, West Brom.


    If we keep up these standards, which we have no excuse not to, we could easily see some separation at the top of the league by December. Maybe up to 5/6 points if things go our way with the others playing each other.

    That's surely not a league game, they're just after playing each other?
