    I dont think they will reach 100 points again this season but beating them to the title will require more than 90 points. Im not sure there is any other team in the league capable of that.

    Substance is what you make of the numbers.

    You don't half post some fucked up irrelevant shit. A nsfw would be sound too.

    It's going to be tough to overcome that 25 point head start they have like.

    The article is on the BBC homepage. I read it hours before and thought it was shite.

    As for my input? Well unless I hope on they we will win the title or stick to Liverpool only, I get blasted so not much point posting more is there?

    The article  tells us nothing anyone who followed last season didn't already know. I would have expected a much deeper dive into the tactical side. It was basically says unless you are Liverpool and Klopp or get very lucky you won't beat them. Amazing stuff.

    That's about as ridiculous an excuse as anyone could come up with.

    I doubt that one single person here could spout even half of the statistics and breakdown of how City conceded goals and the source of their goals, bar the obvious, so yes it does indeed give information most people would not be aware of.

    And as for it just being a cursory inspection of tactics to score/defeat City, well it's about as in-depth as most people would want to go.YMMV. What did you expect from a website when 18 PL managers found it tough to defeat them.

    Personally I found the breakdown of how they concede their goals interesting.

    Yes, but compare it to the argument "we have a 25 point gap to make up on City" and you can see how, in comparison, this article is "all numbers & no substance"

    True enough. And it's still missing the key statistic of a 25 points start.

    Haha. Yes, Dreamy also likes to remind people we’re worse than Spurs last season, despite the fact we were treading water in the league for the last 8 fixtures as we prioritised the CL and they beat us by 2 points.

    And the fact that we've improved our squad and they haven't added to it.

    You know what my dear 6CMers ? Fuck this thread and its title...it would be better placed on websites of the other 18 PL teams.  We already know and Man United already know the answer to the question.
