    Looking at the table, I do genuinely reckon loses for Pool or the Good Show tomorrow would end any realistic hopes for the title (although Goldie will probably have something to say about odds or “funny old game” 🙂 )

    On a side note, just saw goal of the month, and a goal of the season contender, from this Boufal lad at Southampton, that’s worth checking out…

    Don’t think anybody has Goat, most surprised! Quite possibly the most open, honest, and generally realistic (compared to the game in question) interview he has ever given I’d wager!

    And if Liverpool were to beat Spurs tomorrow then realistically Spurs would be out of the title race too.

    But whatever the results tomorrow I really can’t see anyone catching City they have the best Manager, the best team, the best squad, the most points, the best goal difference at + 28 which is probably worth another point v all certainly from Spurs down and City will probably sign Sanchez in the January window too and the latest title odds when they are released will only reflect all of that together with where people are putting their money.

    Huddersfield beating United demonstrates that nothing in football is certain which is what makes it such “a funny old game Saint”. ?

    What will Maureen do next week now? He can’t play spuds to draw now and risk slipping 7 or 8 points behind (if city win) then the week after another killer with Chelsea, it’s going to be interesting seeing what he does

    Still find the United result hard to believe, genuinely. On the point of this thread of buses, anybody see Jose’s pre-match interview? He was quite kryptic when alluding to Huddersfield’s approach hahaha 😀 😉

    Nine, As far as I am concerned this is far from a done deal. We are not a quarter of the way thru the season so it’s frankly ridiculous to say everyne is playing for 2nd. Teams have been lost the title in the last six weeks or so. Jim

    Goatistuta, I think your fixture against Jose and the devils isn’t too far away. A good opportunity to place some breathing space. I do think though if Tottenham beat us and notch up 2 or 3 wins, there’s a chance of them challenging City.

    I was chatting about this in the pub last week on the subject of Lakaku and the point made was that in some games, he’s simply not there to fire the bullets.

    Jim, I understand where you’re coming from mate and I would be saying the same but hand on heart across so many parameters City are ahead of everyone else by a country mile.

    Of course it’s not a done deal after 9 games but imho the only team that can beat City are City themselves and I don’t think that will happen.

    Goldie… my “criteria” for being out the race is more than 9 point, with 6 being for the doubleheaders against City, and 3 for a slip up from City… so yes, Pool and Goonies are out, and your mob are right on the bubble! But considering you’ve only got one more game agasint City this season, I would say your out of it too. Just being polite really. It’s a three horse race right now…

    Watching the Chelski game here, how many sitters did Watford miss at the start of the second half? They should have been out of sight!! Only 10 minutes in and Watford should have been 4 up!!

    Well, for me, it is far too early to talk about titles, we have not even got to Christmas yet and the heaviest period for all teams. City are ahead now and I believe they will get better but that does not win the title, there are other teams out there capable. Of course, I would like them to win the title, we have a much younger team now but all these competitions and internationals will take there toll somewhere along the line, I just hope, if it happens to us again it will not be for players who do the same position. Pep would not agree with that, it would never surprise me now to see Ederson playing full back for real!!!!!!(he would make a good CB or CF !!!!!)

    Double B… nobody is doubting City will have a bad spell, I reckon everybody is predicting more and longer bad spells for everybody else. I reckon, come the New Year and after that crazy 6 weeks when everybody has to paly about 10/12 games, City will be about 9 points clear of everybody.

    banjo,all about opinions mate and it would be boring if we all saw things the same way.

    The title will only end up in Manchester this season imo and almost certainly in the blue half of Manchester, City are a country mile ahead of everybody else currently and if Pep goes past his current contract and City continue to invest at the levels they have this summer given what they already have I think they might well dominate the PL title over the next 5 years like United did under Fergie.

    Revised title odds tomorrow.?

    Absolutely right, Goldie, all about opinions (just so happens mine are right! 🙂 ). Can you imagine how good they will be next year once they’ve bought Sanchez and Messi? (and Rose, Kane, Aldwreoeirieid, Ronaldo, Pele, Greaves, Jennings…)
