    Our defence had a nightmare, draw a line under it and prepare for City now. Simple as that

    I'm not denying that but the title is not in City's hands. It is still ours to lose.

    Same shit, different day. Complacent, sloppy, ludicrous shite. We have not won a single game we've been behind in this season. Not one. It's a joke. Get ahead, switch off, get butt fecked and it's too late.

    If anyone here seriously thinks we are getting anything next Monday now then you're in dreamland. Title gone.

    We really really have to go to the Etihad and somehow avoid defeat. A 3 point lead heading into the final 2 games should be enough.

    Overreacting? feck off. We have let 4 goals in at home and chucked away a lead.

    The whole thing other than the front players was appaling and I don't have a clue why Phil Jones was brought on

    Its in both of our hands. They are at home for the derby though so I'd give them the edge.

    No it's not. It's in our hands because we still hold the advantage in points. We will not go into the City match on an even points total will we, which means it is ours to lose.

    Agree with this, it is a bloody disgrace that we can't keep a TWO goal lead at HOME with 20 odd minutes to go when the title is up for grabs. Simply disgusting.

    We've made it very hard for ourselves, City have only dropped one point at home this season haven't they?

    Except last season we were playing at home against a team that was clearly, IMO, worse than us. It will be a lot tougher this time around.

    Not to mention everyone seems to be forgetting they still have to play Newcastle away as well.

    They also have the best home form in the league. Won every game bar the Sunderland one, where they showed great character to come back from 3-1 down.

    Classic kneejerk.

    It's in our hands because we play City next week. Wouldn't blame you if you posted this next week but chill out.

    Its ours to lose. But its not only in our hands. If that makes sense. Its in City's hands because they don't have to rely on our results, win all their games and they are champions. Just like us.

    Sunderland 3-3 so, I think they won all of the rest.I expected a defeat at the Etihad before this match and now more than ever I expect it

    It's in the hands of both team, obviously. And that's still a huge disappointment because it was in ours only until today.

    PaddyPower are offering 5/4 for Man City to beat us, and 4/7 that we draw or win. So the bookies are still putting it in our hands more so than theirs. It should also be noted that they've got to go to Newcastle, not an easy place to go, particularly with them having so much to play for, and QPR on the last day, where they might need something. The last two fixtures certainly suit us. But they're back in full flow, we aren't. Bad, bad feeling about this.

    The one thing we do have in our hands, is that we felt the same way when we played them in the cup. I believe we'd just lost to Newcastle, following up on the Blackburn loss. And for the first 45 minutes we were scintillating. The second half we let ourselves down, but we got the result, and the same thing could happen now.

    Also, as a side note, Rafael was fecking awful. How you can be at fault for three goals at home is beyond me. Dreadful.

    Not a good day but still time for a few twists and turns. City need to win four straight, with a game against United and one away to Newcastle.

    fecking gutted we have given them a chance of winning it though. Thank feck I don't have to go to work in Manchester tomorrow.

    We are making it so hard for ourselves. At 4-2 we should have really seen the game out with 10 minutes remaining.

    How many more kick up the arses do we need? We are giving City more confidence slowly but surely. I expect them to come out and beat Wolves today, which would put the gap at three points and set it up for the derby match.

    I can take the Wigan result because it was away from home against a very good Wigan side, in great form who dominated us the whole match. Today, we had a two goal cushion with 10 minutes to go. It's inexcusable really.

    It's in both teams hand's from their own perspective! City right now are thinking "win our remaining games and we are Champions". United right now are thinking "draw against City and we are Champions if we win our next two games"

    Win all of our games and we win the title. In fact, we don't even need to win all of our games.

    No way is it in their hands, but they'll have the momentum and will go into the game on Monday high on confidence, IF they win today.

    We will get a point at City and they won't get all three against Newcastle.

    Win all our games and we win the title. I can't understand why people are talking like City are that much better than us, they have been favourites all season and failed to capitalise and put a gap in. When we took our chance, we put the cushion in to allow for any slip up like we have had. The title is still in our hands. feck me, some of you have to be closet blues here.

    Fergie will be digging out his DVD of Devon Loch tonight. Still, it sets it up nicely for a 'title decider' next week, even though that's a misnomer if you ask me. There's still 9 points to play for and City won't relish taking us on.
