    Everyone goes on about how this time last year, Chelsea were so far ahead because they were playing exceptional champaign football.

    People say that we're only where we are, and only have a shot at the title, because everyone else is playing so ****.

    When the truth is that this time last year, after 17 games, Chelsea had only three points more than we currently do, one more than Leicester.

    That's with a really injury hit squad too..

    I am really liking how Joel Campbell seems to just be putting in really good shifts for us, nothing exceptional, but plays for the team. We have really needed the depth for a while and attacking-wise I think we are good enough now. But against the best opposition, we really need the CDM depth sorted. Having Coquelin as the only good CDM is asking for trouble.

    No Chelsea were so far ahead because we were consistent and everybody else was terrible, that's what was said last season too.

    It's the same situation for you lot. But you're not even first so I don't really see the issue here. By this point we had already started our decline though.

    Let's hope there isn't a repeat of summer 2013 when we chase pretty much every player and their agents all go "nah you're ****, you'll injure him and he'll get disgruntled"

    Not as bad as the Daily Mail reporting that Blackett was coming back because of a rumour started by a fake twitter account

    Only worry for me is Ozil. If he stays fit all season, we're hot favourites for the league. If he gets injured, well, it'll be top 4 again.

    To be honest, 5-10 years ago you were looking at 90 points for a typical title winner

    04/05 - Chelsea 95 points
    05/06 - Chelsea 91 points
    06/07 - Man Utd 89 points
    07/08 - Man Utd 87 points
    08/09 - Man Utd 90 points

    Dropped a little after that but still high 80s generally. So teams should be around 40 points by now. That said, Arsenal aren't that far off like you say.

    Yeah it feels like the title will be won at around 80 points this season. We really need to have a really hot start to calender year, like we did last year. Then we'll definitely win.

    Ideally, we need the title won before we go to the Ethiad - which is our penultimate game.
