    Agreed, it's over now as far as I'm concerned... No way City will bottle this lead, mathmatically its not over but any other which way you look at it, it is....!

    I don't care so much about 100 points because it will be extremely difficult for that to ever be reached in England, but I would like us to break both of Chelsea's points and goals scored records. 96 points would mean 24 from a possible 33 remaining. That is very possible.

    Lets just imagine

    Basle return leg - lose 1-0
    Last 8 - draw away win at home
    Last 4 - draw away win at home
    Final - win

    Fa Cup -
    Last 16 win
    Last 8 win
    Last 4 win
    Final win

    League Cup final - win

    League - win 3 draw 5 and lose 3 - enough to make us Champions

    So potentially - 11 wins 7 draws and 4 losses in all competitions and we could be Quadruple winners!!

    Scary stuff WW, the match day threads wouldn't be a place for faint hearts with only a 50% win rate.

    Thread started a long time ago so the following comments are "in hindsight"... but....

    The league is virtually over - not mathematically so, but it would take a monumental collapse of form on our part coupled with perfect play from the Scum not to win the league this year - not happening.

    More interesting to me (at least) - will we break the 100-point barrier? Especially if we actually do win the league early on and then can rest top players for other cups?

    Exactly. Domestic treble is a very realistic target, and that should give this team the "reverence" in years to come.

    The points record is pretty meaningless. 06 Chelsea was every bit as good as 05. They just lost their last 2 dead rubbers, whereas 05 only dropped 2 points in there's.

    05 finished with 95 points, 06 with 91.

    Pep's Barca first team, widely considered the greatest of all time, only finished with 87 points. They lost like their 3 or 4 dead rubbers.

    People talk about that United 99 team like they're an all time great, despite having the lowest point total for a champion in the PL era.

    Ultimately this team is going to be judged on how many titles they win.
