    Jeezus have we learnt nothing from last season. Bookies slashing odds on a Liverpool title, some fans not much better, yes Liverpool have been the most consistent SO FAR but ffs we are 8 games in, only 1/4 of the season. City have been through this before, they’ve proven over recent seasons they can go the distance. This is a long way from over & I still think we will get a couple of injuries & a couple of big guns will lose form as the season rolls on & city will close the gap. I’m being honest when I say I think city will still win it.

    Chelsea.man why are you writing about Utd in a post about the top 6 teams?!

    This 8 point gap can very quickly evaporate. One Liverpool loss and, all of a sudden, it’s a 5 point gap. Really is nothing at this stage of the season

    That is true Ed. A fair few tweeted the same thing and mentioned the BBC as their source. It could be 1 person making it up and a few have just followed. I guess we will have to wait and see.

    To be fair I don’t think LFC having been shouting it’s our year as we are renowned for doing so, everyone else is doing it for us! The games vs City, like last season, will be pivotal. 8 points can change to 2.

    I will only celebrate an 8 point lead if there’s only 2 games left! However there is no harm in having hope is there? Surely every fan, even Utd fans(!), have some sort of hope for the season, if not what’s the point of watching?

    Ed, at this very time. United remain a top 6 team. regardless of the problems they are having. but it will stupid to write them off as a top 6 or even top 4 team. things can quickly turn around and change. 4 years ago, Liverpool were not playing in the CL and United were playing in the CL. first forward Liverpool are European champions and current PL leaders. so fortunes can change.

    Oz, to be fair to the bookies they will only slash the odds on Liverpool winning the title on the back of more money being placed on Liverpool to win the title.

    I haven’t a clue where United might finish this season but Chelseaman is right about the top 6 which will surely swing around as the season progresses.

    Credit to Palace currently being in the top 6 but I wouldn’t be putting my money on them still being in the top 6 at the end of the season.

    Disagree about Pep’s biggest weakness is cities defence. They only conceded 23 goals last season. City with Laporte in the team, are excellent at the back

    There are defensive problems at the minute but that’s down to the lack of proper centre half’s available and not pep

    Ederson was a massive upgrade on brave. Quality keeper. The defence has been excellent since he cane but now it’s looks frail because they have to play a midfielder in defence

    Laporte is a much bigger loss then kompany in my opinion. He’s one of the best left sided centre backs around. Rock solid and a lovely left foot

    Chelsea man…..Augerro maybe the wrong side of 30 but just look who is heading the goalscorers, he is actually playing better than I have seen him for some time and his assist are special also. Silva…you cannot rule this guy out, ever…one game below par and he comes in for some stick. Again, he will be important for us , again, this season

    Good post Sean…..we had 2 goals put past us, three at Norwich but at the end of the season we will not have the worst defence

    I still cannot understand the point many are making re Kompany…..he could not have survived another season in the EPL
    He was a good leader but City have survived long spells without him as well. The problem we have now is we are a bit lightweight in defence. I am sure this will be resolved

    I don’t understand any of this half a dozen key player missing including two centre halves one of them outstanding and the futures of City, Pep, Aguero ( current joint top scorer in the PL) and David Silva are all being questioned on the back of one unlikely home defeat v Wolves.

    Bonkers!
