    De Bruyne is a massive miss for them and we need him to be out as long as possible. Am I right in saying that each time they've lost points this season, De Bruyne hasn't started?

    Laporte is a huge miss, also, but they can get by without him. They seem to struggle without De Bruyne this season.

    We are in the middle of our hard run of games, while city have some 'easy' games coming up.

    Our hope has to be to try and remain unbeaten until after the city game and hope city drop another 3- 5 points more and the reassess this again at xmas.

    The head to heads against city will be crucial.  After we lost at the ethidad, it gave city the belief for their unbeaten  they had.

    You "defo would've taken" winning 8 games out of 8 and being 8 points clear? How magnanimous and clear-headed of you.

    No silly emotional responses for bineeerrrrrrrmial! No sireee!

    When offered the opportunity at the start of the season to win every single one of our first eight games and to be eight points ahead of the second-placed team, The Nermial does not jump to a quick answer, but takes in all the facts, weighs up the options and likelihoods of all the variables in play, and only then does he give his calm, objective answer.

    That was such a beautiful post I almost read it twice.

    Thank you.

    P.s I'd also take 9 wins out of 9 and 11 points clear come united :)

    De Brune seems to be injured every season for short periods of time. Yeah, hopes he stays out long enough to drop more points this season.

    De Bruyne will be back after the international break. They’ve already bought some new joints and ligaments on the black market in Qatar.

    You're right, I did quiff. However we said quite different things. You said the World thingy was 'on par' with the Euro Supacup. I said it was 'more meaningful'.

    Don't we have United, City and Spurs in the next four weeks? We may drop points, and it shouldn't be a surprise if we do.

    This is what happens when you're one of the big boys!

    Beat United, Spurs, and Draw with Citeh and we're solid.

    The trouble is the United game is their cup final so they'll play above their level.. I know this, because the shoe was regularly on the other foot for us..

    Did you know United are also just two points off relegation?

    You do realise that playing above their level now would only just take them into the top half of the table? We shouldn't be worried about a mid-table club.

    Also if we are to drop points in one of those games I'd prefer it to be a shock draw with Spurs and winning the other two, if you could, thank you very much.

    It is a great time to play United as not only are they playing shite but they are disappearing to teams where they have no time to work out what is wrong and put in effort on the training ground to fix it. They'll come back from international duty without any idea about what their tactics and system are.

    Agreed - he's the best player in the league when in form. He seems to take time to find form post injuries so hopefully that trend continues.
