    If we win the next 5 it's game over because Utd would also lose one game (assuming Liverpool drop 2 points somewhere)

    To win it against the rags they have to equal us. So if we win the next 4 then they have to win the next 3 (they only have 3 other league games before playing us due to the FA Cup). Therefore they would beat Liverpool in that run of 3 games, taking them out of the equation.

    Yes, to United assuming they win all of their games

    Stoke and Everton who usually are tough away games, have both been shite this season. Stoke have conceded the most goals in the league, and Everton have no game plan in attack under Allardyce. The rest of the schedule looks very comfortable apart from our three big games vs Chelsea & United at Home, and Spurs away. If we get 5 or 7 points out of these 3 games then I think there is a very decent chance we are gonna finish above 100 points.

    Well their Liverpool game will be tricky. If the rags lose that and we win the next four - Big IF I know especially with the games we have to play - (and Liverpool drop 2 points somewhere else) then it's 'Guard of Honour time at the Derby (TM).

    Update (kept my prediction at the bottom):

    City's Next 6 (Game in hand)
    1st March - Arsenal (A) - Won 3-0.
    4th March - Chelsea (H)
    * 7th March - Basel (H) - CL *
    12th March - Stoke (A)
    31st March - Everton (A)

    * 3rd/4th April - Champions League Quarter Final 1st Leg *
    7th April - United (H)
    * 10th/11th April - Champions League Quarter Final 2nd Leg *
    14th April - Spurs (A)

    United's Next 5
    5th March - Crystal Palace (A)
    10th March - Liverpool (H)

    * 13th March - Sevilla (H) - CL *
    * 17th March - Brighton (H) - FA Cup *
    31st March - Swansea (H)
    * 3rd/4th April - Champions League Quarter Final 1st Leg * - If they get there.
    7th April - City (A)
    * 10th/11th April - Champions League Quarter Final 2nd Leg * - If they get there.
    15th April - West Brom (H)

    Liverpool's next 5
    3rd March - Newcastle (H)
    * 6th March - Porto (H) *
    10th March - United (A)
    17th March - Watford (H)
    - (Extra game than us given no FA Cup clashes)
    31st March - Crystal Palace (A)
    * 3rd/4th April - Champions League Quarter Final 1st Leg *
    8th April - Everton (A)
    * 10th/11th April - Champions League Quarter Final 2nd Leg *


    Current Standings (updated 2nd March):

    ____________P______W____D____L____GS____GA____GD____PTS_______MAX PTS POSSIBLE
    City________28_____24____3____1_____82____20____62_____75____________105
    United______28_____18____5____5_____53____20____33_____59____________89
    Liverpool____28_____16____9____3_____65____32____33_____57____________87


    Predictions:
    City
    4 vs Arsenal & Chelsea, 3 vs Stoke, 1 vs Everton, 3 vs United, 1 vs Spurs = 12 points. Would leave us on 84 points.

    United
    3 vs Palace (think they could draw this), 1 vs Liverpool, 3 vs Swansea, 0 vs City, 3 vs West Brom = 10 points. They could only get a max of 84 points in this scenario.

    Liverpool
    3 vs Newcastle, 1 vs United, 3 vs Watford, 3 vs Palace, 1 vs Everton = 11 points (probably capable of 15 points at the moment). They could only get a max of 83 points in this scenario.


    Think our run could either be a breeze or a struggle so true to form i've sat on the fence. That 19 day break in March could be huge for us in terms of resting players for the Champions League.

    It's possible that we could either win it against Everton and get a guard of honour from united, win it against united or win it at Wembley.

    All three scenarios sound pretty sweet.

    Guard of honour looks very unlikely now the Brighton game has been postponed.
    Even if Utd lose both games, Liverpool would stop us doing it.

    Think I'd prefer to win it against them anyway because they'd have to watch the celebrations at full time.

    Yep I agree.
    A repeat of the 6-1 will do very nicely.
