Is the title over if we lost tomorrow?
« on: November 01, 2014, 20:22:28 »
Quite frankly I fear it is already if we lose. I know any team can lose a few games and Chelsea don't look all that good but I just can;t see us being 9 points better than them from now until the end of the season. We must stay max 6 points behind.

Bigger gaps have been closed but I can't see this City team closing a 9 point gap on that Chelsea team. Form can change, injuries can happen but I reckon the game tomorrow is as close to a must win as you can get at this stage of the season.

Much too early to call, Chelsea will not drop many points because of the defensive set up they employ, but neither will we.

Yes, I don't think we can go 9 points behind them even at this stage

I can't decide if Chelsea are good or if most of the teams in the Prem this season are a bit rubbish and make them look good.

Mind you, we seem to be struggling to beat some of the rubbish.

Win or lose, I believe Chelsea will win the title. To even have a shout a replacement for Toure must be found, or at least provide competition in the midfield. If Juve want Nasty, perhaps we can do a deal on their up and coming midfielder.

If Chelsea lose Costa for any significant period of time then they'll be vulnerable so we need to keep the pressure on. However the way we've played so far this season would see us winning nowt. Could be a pivotal week for Pellers with the champs league too.

The title retention is alive and well. We need to work harder than we are, and sorting that out is down to Pelle.
