    Woah chill out Mourinho - are you suggesting that the mods are biased? Inb4 ban.

    Nah, we will most likely stay ahead of Chelsea unless they go on some mad unbeaten run, but City look so much more dominant than any other team (even though they will inevitably have a bad run of 4-5 games).
    100% mod bias, so salty.

    It would be characteristic of Chelsea to do just that though, Logic says that they can't make up such a deficiency but let's not forget the sheer quality they have.
    Will be interesting to see how this season pans out - would be harsh to expect much from Liverpool's new manager but if it turns out to be Klopp then who knows?

    Yeah I know, grinding out results to get points is Mourinho's strong point, so if they go into Christmas <8 points behind Liverpool/Arsenal/Tottenham/United then they should be able to make up the difference if they get a bit lucky.

    True, that's one side of it but the problem is that they simply can't afford to have any more "bad days" because they're already too far behind as it is.
    They have an absolute mountain to climb but if one team could do it, it's Chelsea.

    Walcott saying he wants to play striker for England just as Wayne gets injured. Guys got no chill and I ****ing love it.
    Trying to plant the seed in Wayne and Roy's minds that Wazza should be moved into midfield as he gets older, conveniently leaving the striker role open for him. No ****ing chill, especially after his stunning performance vs United, cheeky scrub

    Yeah it's pretty funny since he usually tries to put himself across as this meek, respectful guy, but he's obviously got a strong entitlement complex.

    If Theo continues to develop his style of play in the middle as he has been doing recently, him Ozil & Alexis will be an absolute nightmare for most teams.

    Can't find a gif or a video, but that Schwienstieger tackle :eek:

    Theo's proved me wrong, hold up play was the worry but now very good at the quick give and gos like Thierry used to. Passing also much better

    Truth be told Theo would cost £30m+ to replace.

    City did it to us last season, after GW32 they were 5 points behind, and at the end of the season they were 4 points ahead.

    The problem is simply down to goal difference though. With City you can always see them going on a run where they are smashing teams 4-1/3-0. With Chelsea I guess you can see them going on those ****ing runs of 2-0 wins. I guess it's enough to go above Arsenal though but even then you lot look like you can score goals with the creativity you have.

    Personally think you're going to win the league this season.

    You're more confident than 99% of our fanbase.

    True, Chelsea after Christmas were one of the most atrocious title-winning sides I have seen (having said that, Chelsea before Christmas were annoyingly untouchable).

    Your ability to go on runs at a weird inconsistency is bound to change. Injuries withstanding you probably have the strongest team in the league after Chelsea personally and the best setup against most teams in the league. Would argue you even have the ability for 0-0 draws now. No ****ing idea why you're aiming to get knocked out in the CL group stages though.

    Chelsea before Christmas was equally as ****e but we just happened to score early, concede early and then score another 2. We then went to the same tactic as the second half of the season. The issues in the second half of the season simply is us struggling to create the opening goal due to Mous tactics being more pragmatic to conserve our energy(instead of just rotating like any sane person who doesn't just pick his favourites would do) but our aims for the entirety of the season was to go 2 goals up at any point in the game then pass around the back/middle third to conserve energy for cup games instead of just rotating. Now we just pass around the back/middle third and go 2 goals down instead. Maybe Benitez did have a point in 12/13 just that he did it when our options were Benayoun and Marin.

    Really the only thing City have over you is a better striker. Other positions you are either equal or better.
