    How the feck is it in Cities hands? We're leading by 5 points and and still a game to play at wastelands. It's all in our fecking hands and has been since we took the lead in the race.

    No it's not. It's still in our hands, clearly, because we are six points ahead and still have to play them. We will win it.

    They win the rest of their games and they win the league. We were 8 clear 2 weeks ago, now will most likely be 3 clear at the end of the day with them well ahead on goal difference.

    Means feck all. In City's hands too, and they have the game at home. From a pure neutral point of view, its advantage City.

    We've each got a hand on it, clearly. The fact we only need a draw at their stadium cancels out their home advantage, so imo it's 50/50.

    I am not having people painting today into a "it doesn't matter" result.

    We have had the wind knocked from our sails whilst City are flying.

    I am starting to worry.

    They will be favourites that's for sure. Knee jerk thread perhaps but blowing a 2 goal lead twice in the same game is shocking. They will be full of confidence now.

    Six points. And no a draw at City wouldn't get us anything.

    fecking hell, you can say the exact same for us. If we win the rest of our games, we win the league. Just get a grip and have some faith, City have "thrown away the league" more times this season than we have but people seem to have forgotten that.

    The Caf in overreacting to dropped points shocker.

    You'd think City just clinched the title. Grow a pair, people.

    We seem determined to drag Man City back into contention. It's infuriating how things have turned out this way. The players have great character but also get so complacent it's untrue.

    We better be fired up for the next game now.

    Of course we can get something, but we were leading by 2 goals twice in this game. Should have been over and then City would need us to drop more points than a defeat at the Etihad. Massive blow this

    Pathetic, City have a decent/great chance of winning the title.The players have let SAF down big time today.

    Of course it matters, we would like to have it tied up by now but come on, even SAF said he expects to drop points along the way. If we keep doing what we have been doing all season and concentrate on our own game instead of what City are doing, we can still win the league. I'm shocked at how people on this forum can sit and watch the most successful English club in the last 20 years, a club that has won 12 titles in those same 20 years, and essentially call us bottlers. It's flabbergasting.

    There is dropping points then there is doing what we done today, something that just shouldn't have happened. I can accept the Wigan result because we were dire that night and deserved absolutely nothing but today at 4-2 we all thought it was over, then concede 2 goals in 2 minutes.

    Personally I was terrified after the under performance away to Arsenal, a ground we had had a lot more luck previously. Then Hernandez scored in seconds and we scored from a corner.

    We bottled it today though which ever way you look at it and matters were not helped by Fergie's baffling substitution.

    Forget about what this means for the title race, we shouldn't be conceding 4 goals at home. Period!

    Not all rosey for City either, to be fair they have to beat us, and they also face an inform Newcastle away chasing a title in being the Champions League.

    You think it's overreacting? We lost a 4-2 lead. With ten minutes to go. At home.

    I hope so, but what happened out there today could well cost us dearly. It seems neither us or City want this league title, but now they have found form when it looked like it was all over a couple of weeks back.

    This day, this thread and the reaction on here have all to make this day special and see City lose/draw at Wolves today.
