Sadly their players are so shite all their national teams don't want them.....
If we are still top after the City game we will be in a very strong position. City's "easy" upcoming fixtures are just a continuation of their very favourable fixture list since the start of the season, in their 8 games so far they have played Bournemouth, Watford, Southampton, Everton, Norwich, Wolves, Brighton, West Ham and Spurs. So they have only faced one of the supposed trickiest 10 fixtures and that was a home games (Spurs). They have 3 more games against "lesser" teams before playing us. By that time we will have played Chelsea, Arsenal, United, Spurs and City all in our first 12 fixtures.
City's run of games after they play us is tough for a couple of months so hopefully we can retain our position and build up a useful points gap before the springtime fixtures.
And Leicester. 50% of our games against the other 6 best clubs. I'm still not willing to get excited until we have moved past that City game. Then i'm ready to start decamping.
They used to be a huge hype though. I remember Januzaj scored a couple of goals for them and the papers were all speculating on how England could secure him for International duty as he was supposed to represent Belgium or Albania(?). I don't think any of the countries mentioned are watching Real Sociedads reserve team to see if he fits in.
