    I think we will drop points and QPR will get a draw.

    Damp squib this one. It'll finish 1-1 and City will win 5-0.

    The City love-in is pissing me off already and it hasn't properly started. Gonna be shit until the Euros start at least. Just need to do our job here and ensure that, for all their millions spent, it's only goal difference that wins it for them.

    I'm remembering back to when we had not won the title before the premiership. Remember the pressure to win for the first time in ages? It is not easy. There is a chance, albeit slight, that City will crumble under the pressure of the last day. Either way I'm proud of the lads. One heck of a points tally this season and the lads have competed up to the last day of the season against a team built on almost a billion pounds of oil money.

    City 1-1 and another year's wait.
    United 2-1 and #20.

    According to Sun, Carrick might not play Sunday's match due to illness.

    ffs.
    So no Evans, Smalling and Carrick?
    Fergie says rio is fine, but he'll get injured during warmup. Berba will play at the back.. Park in midfield.

    Last game of the season.. might as well make it interesting.

    So we're going to have Rio and Jones in defense, flanked by two full backs who don't like defending, with no Carrick to protect the back four. This should be fun.

    Patrice Evra backs Manchester United to produce title shock

    Manchester United defender Patrice Evra still believes his side could snatch the title from rivals Manchester City on the final day of the season.

    United, second on goal difference, require either City to slip up at home to QPR or an improbable landslide win over Sunderland to edge back in front.

    "Maybe people will say I'm crazy, but I still believe," said Evra.

    "I know destiny is not in our hands. If we want to keep believing in the miracle, we have to beat Sunderland."

    Manchester City have collected 52 from a possible 54 points at Etihad Stadium this season, while QPR have lost 13 times on the road this season - more than any other side in the top flight.

    But, after United's 2-0 win over Swansea on Sunday, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson told fans at Old Trafford this weekend could mark "the biggest celebration of our lives".

    He also suggested relegation-threatened Rangers, managed by former Manchester City boss Mark Hughes, would not lack motivation to ruin the leaders' party plans.

    Evra believes the dynamics of the season's final day - with all matches kicking off at 15:00 BST on Sunday - will allow Manchester United to heap extra pressure on their rivals.

    "If we score first, maybe the City fans in the stadium will start to be nervous," he added.

    "When you are nervous, you rush things and you don't do the things you want to do. That's why I still believe, but we must make sure we are ready against Sunderland."

    In their own game at home to QPR on 8 April, United won 2-0 to move eight points clear with six matches remaining.

    Evra believes United's late collapse in the 4-4 draw against Everton three weeks later, a game in which he headed against the post with his side leading 4-2, marked the point the title race tipped back in City's favour.

    "If you play for Manchester United, you have to accept the pressure," he said. "You have to win every year no matter what you do. People don't care, you have to win.

    "It's going to hurt a lot. If we see City celebrate, people will say it's the end of the Manchester United empire."

    At least if we drop points to Sunderland we won't have lost it on goal difference.

    Typical this injury list is happening to us - imagine how boring it would be if City were going into tomorrow's game without Kompany, Lescott and Yaya :mad:

    To be honest I can't wait until tomorrow is over. Wish I could jump to pre season right now already. I think it will be a media blackout week or so and I certainly won't be watching City pick up our trophy..

    Doesn't really feel like a matchday. Feels like there's nothing to play for which never happens.

    I can't remember if this ever happened but, in e.g. Italy some teams play their last game in their new kits to give a sneak peek of how it will look next season. Are we playing in the new kit today?

    We never do it and the away kit hasn't been unveiled yet anyway.

    They could at least wait until either FT or until City score today to put that out in a store.

    Thought as much, I think it would be a lift for the players mind.

    I had a dream we won it!! We won 3-0 and City only drew 0-0...some of the details are wrong though - City were playing Chelsea and we were playing Crystal Palace, but yeah back 3-0 and 0-0.

    Did I also mention that I had a dream the American Air Force airlifted away a local school to replace it with a Baseball field! Take from this what you will!

    Really? No Carrick? Leaving a pretty big hole in the middle there, particularly with Jones in the middle.

    It would be anti-climactic if we were to win the title, especially as most of our fans seem to have given up hope.

    Fox is showing every single game (bar City) from what I understand using their affiliates. We are on FX. City on ESPN2.

    Wouldn't it be the opposite? It'll be anti-climactic if everything turns out the way everyone expects.
