    It’s rare that I’ll see a post that i have been in line with so much. exactly that. I thought Pep would be found out because his history shows that he’s gone to leagues with incredibly dominant clubs. His first season in the Pl looked to be proving me correct, as they didnt really do much better than us. was it 1-2 points? he had incredible resources behind him then but what he’s sicne done is he’s turned City from being a wealth of talent, into a golden age level team. I’ve put that in bold because it’s a big statement that I don’t say lightly.

    Again, you’re dead right about the City lads on here, they are being well mannered and not counting their chickens but we all know , in the back of our mind that the title is 70-80% going to City. The remaining 20-30% is shared amongst the other 3 and sure, Liverpool more than the others but … everyone will be shocked if it doesn’t go to City.

    With all of that said though, I’m not completely writing us off. As long as we’re in the conversation, we’ve got to have some belief that the incredible is possible but make no mistake of it, it’ll be a very very VERY special team that wins the PL this season.

    Is it a shame that we’ve come along with our really good team at the same time? Absolutely, if you want to be negative about it (I will be sometimes) but at least it’s happened. We’ve got more to go for sure and if we can run them close I’ll probably be happy. Obviously we need to win some silverware but really, any sense of progress will do. Whatever keeps us moving forward is a good thing.

    Now, as for tonight… I’m actually starting to get excited about it already. I don’t like the position that we’ve put ourselves in but I love these European nights. I don’t want them to end is all. The lads have got to go out there and play like Champions to be Champions. it’s totally up to them.

    In 05 we made a meal of the group stage too and if we’ve had our shock here then great. I don’t want to need to beat Napoli by X goals at Anfield in the final game but it is mighty familiar stuff! haha Maybe the non-Liverpool fans won’t have those memories but holy hell.. I’m waffling on now at this stage. Let’s beat the piss out of the Fralacticos *coined)* in their own yard!

    We’ve been kings of Europe many times, these bank account upstarts will have to go through us. GGRRRRR

    Liverpool have every chance of winning to night, I think more will depend on there up and coming youngsters performances than Salah or Mane.
    Mak, at this time of the season the season I would not put our chances higher than 50/50 When Mid February comes round I may review that.
    I am happy at 50/50 because I know we have a good squad , what I do not know is injuries, loss of form etc etc and they are big parts of any optimism I may feel

    50/50 Brian? šŸ™‚

    I guess it’s 50/50 as its either City or Liverpool but City aren’t massive odds on favourites for nothing.

    50/50 on whether City wins the League or not? Somebody is having a laugh… šŸ™‚

    If you could take 50/50 odds (not betting but actual odds of it happening), you’d take them right now?

    Not a chance in hell. City definitely have more than a 50% chance of retaining the title.

    I think Liverpool can win tonight. Also Spurs.
    Lets hope so. The more British teams the better.

    Sadly no. That would be a psychlogical hedge! Just tonights game.
    9/2 for the title. Not bad if you believe?

    Well guys, as you can all see, I am not a betting man, more a realist and I am surprised if you cannot see Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs or Arsenal takeing points off City, keeping in mind we are only 2 points in front. I want City to win but I see a fight to the end this season and I am not takeing any game as a win. City can be beaten and we will loose, we are not unbeatable, it is up to other teams how they progress. I will be pleased to see DeBruyne and Bernando back though
    Pragmatic maybe but it is my honest opinion as well

    I’m not saying it’s impossible or that we can’t take points of City (although I think it’s extremely difficult). I just need to be convinced. City losing a game soon, with us on a winning streak might help šŸ˜‰

    Double B… it’s possible that another Top 6 side might take points of City, granted, but I think the issue is simply City are going to steam roll everybody else, whereas all the other Top6 sides are more than capable of slipping up during those games.

    Your mob may not win as “quickly” as you did last year, I reckon it will be all wrapped up with at least 3 games to spare and probably “all over bar the shouting” with about 6 games to go…

    Neymar is just a total cheat. Dives about holds his face. Horrid.
    Bad error by VVD for the goal.

    Was it a penalty? Not sure but understand why it was given. Mane!!!, He does go over but nothing compared to Neymar. Bet is still alive!
