Manchester United Message Board
Afer the 'Pool result they need 35 pts from 13 games to realisically keep their title. Can be done, I remember United getting 30 points from their last 10 games. Probable? no.
The acid test for United is next Sunday. 3 Pts against Everton and it would need a 'Devon Lock' for City to retain the title.
Nothing's ever won in February...but in this case it might be.
City recovered from a 10 point deficit last year and I seem to recall they had a slump when Toure went to the African Cup, also Kompany is out, they'll get better with those two back.
It's a great lead and I would have settled for it at the start of the season (I would have been pleased with half of it), but not yet decisive.
But the team is putting together a good string of results and this is encouraging.
Jim > they have got rid of one of our best advantages..Ballotelli in their changing room. admittedly tevez seems to be getting restless but he used to say when he was with us that he wanted to be heading back to south america at about this time of his life, but I think he'll still pull his guts out for city until then. so I guess if we want to win this league then its up to our team to keep on winning and playing well not praying for other teams to struggle
