    We did the same last season.

    We’re on a great run, went to Abu Dhabi, came back and lost to Liverpool twice and United once.

    Post from 31st January:
    Updated results in the above post I made 3 and 4 weeks back.

    Current Standings:
    1) Liverpool, +44 GD, 66 points, maximum finish of 99 points.
    2) City, +54 GD, 65 points, maximum finish of 98 points.
    3) Spurs, +27 GD, 60 points, maximum finish of 93 points.

    Still going with 95/96 points for the winner.

    Think us and Liverpool have similar run-ins. Both have local derbies away but they have 2 top 6 games left outside of those, we have only 1, granted our local derby is also a top 6 game. Spurs' run-in easily the hardest.

    So today's liverpool result means they can't be centurions (not that it was ever likely).

    Still a nice bonus...

    Especially when we take the league by two points in May.

    Nah... it's still possible. So far, so good in the centurians between titles bid.

    93/94pts wins it for me.
    We might not even need that much because looking at Liverpool yesterday it’s doubtful they’ll hit 90.

    Yep, And the dippers and us would near enough have to win 8 or 9 games out of the last 11 to get that total.

    Theres defiantly banana skin games for both clubs coming up.

    It's going to the wire this one.

    It's still 90. Given that Spurs play both ourselves and the dippers, and given that the max points achievable by the three sides with 11 games remaining is;
    Dippers 99
    Us 98
    Spurs 93

    It's almost inevitable that 2 of the 3 sides are going to finish on 90 or less, making 90 the winning line.

    A draw and a defeat (5 points dropped) is probably the minimum that we require. I can't see Liverpool dropping more than 6 or 7.
