Aye, City are on track for 86 points. This team is capable of reaching around that in my opinion, but stupid games like Palace & Sheff U at home have really cost us. We certainly could have been in race until the final month at least.Thats the thing, its a golden opportunity because this year points required would be around 85. That's around 15 points less than the last 3 seasons. I agree we wont reach those points, not with this manager with this squad. But more certainly we wont reach 99 points heights with this manager, no matter which squad.
Thats the missed oportunity, we had to improve 20 points to win this year, next year it will be 35.
Had we won those two home games we’d be on track for 84 points, so absolutely an opportunity for a genuine challenge was there this season.
Next year has to be a full on challenge for the title, this season must finish strongly and piss top 3, not scrape it, that’d show real progress and have us in a great position to challenge next season.
