What do you mean right? We very could win fuck all this season. All i know I am right about is this side is much better than 13/14, 08/09 and the 01/02 side. So you need to enjoy that part of it.

But again, that doesnt mean anything when it comes to winning trophies.

This. I didn't expect us to win the league this year, I didn't expect us to push City i just wanted progress. I still am not thinking about us winning the title or being close to it I am just enjoying seeing this side play and grow

Look mate have your opinion (I like it) I'm happy for you, I just don't have a brain that thinks that way.

I understand mate, I just can't be arsed stressing about what may or may not happen to us, football is escape to life's bullshit for me, not a place where i continuously stress about things that are out of my control

Every game is now bigger than the one before it, we're in the championship rounds and we'll see what the boys are made of. Fully confident we're going to win it this year but still have a feeling we're going to slip up somewhere and it'll give us all an almighty heart attack. Hope my gut is wrong, it's already been quite a rollercoaster.

It was 2 points dropped, possibly a huge 2 points also. If you let teams off the the hook and don't tske advantage then don't be surprised when they take advantage on another game week.

2 points lost to Spurs, who are now only 4 points behind.

Spurs :)

I’m the same. I not confident at all about tomorrow. Don’t know why but I’ve just got this feeling that tomorrow won’t go to plan. Obviously hope I’m wrong like but just have a bad feeling about tomorrow’s game.

As soon as our defence is back and we ride this storm without Trent and Gomez we will be flying again, we just need to grind out results until then.

Trent will be back for the next league game after tomorrow (hopefully), but we may not see Gomez back again until March/April I'm afraid.

That's my worry too. In a title chasing season it's hard to give young lads a chance, but I do think that that we need to use some of them at least in the last 10 min to give key players a break.

United won more than the 1 title after having to rely on young kids who nobody had heard of and then went on to have shit careers.

Seen a few things on tv about how we’ve battered them them the last few times we’ve played them, going 1-0 up early on Wednesday and then drawing, plus City winning today as well. Obviously we turn up and play as well as we can we’ll be fine, but just can’t pinpoint why I think it won’t go to plan tomorrow.

Nobody wants us to win this title, absolutely no one. From opposition fans to pundits, the media, and referees. We'd had better get used to it and go into every game as if it were a cup final. West Ham would love nothing more than to throw a spanner in the works tomorrow and say they derailed our season.

Whether or not we win it, Klopp called for believers right from the start of his reign. That's the way it should be. Or tag yourself as a 'doubter' instead of being a 'believer'.

To put it in a different way, if you're a father, and you constantly keep doubting your son, it doesn't help him get up from his failures does it?

The role of supporters is to 'support', I think we need the definition repeated every often at this time it looks like. When the supporters are positive, it rubs on to the players and the team, and vice versa. The atmosphere against Leicester was poor, & I'm sure the doubts & groans rubbed off to the players, whereas in previous games we often found something extra to win close games. If anyone thinks these 'doubts', small or big is helping themselves, or other supporters around them, or the team on and off the pitch, then they need a massive wobble to their head. Negativity helps nobody. Nobody.

I don't think that a few supporters being wary of us potentially not quite making it, and voicing those concerns on a forum, is going to impact on the team whatsoever.

I actually think that cultivating an atmosphere that sometimes borders on arrogant stubbornness that we absolutely will win, no matter what, is potentially more harmful to the team... I think City's fans care less about winning the title than us, and that probably eases the pressure on their team. For us, like in 2014, there's this underlying feeling of "destiny" and the unspoken feeling that we need to get it right now or it'll probably be another 5/6 years before we get another shot...I genuinely think if more fans had more of a blase attitude towards our title chances it would help ease the tension and allow people to just enjoy each match as it comes.

The father/child analogy...If your son has a foot injury but insists he's gonna win the school sports day race, and you show him nothing but support and "belief" - he may go on to fall and break his leg during the race. Just because you care about something/someone, doesn't mean you have to completely neglect the ability to use critical thinking - that's not always helpful.

Anyway, let's just beat West Ham, and hope Chelsea can nick a point next Sunday. God knows Everton aren't doing us any favours.

I would say it shouldn’t really need to be explained how important a draw instead of a loss might be at the end of the season, particularly considering what’s happened to us in the not too distant past, but I’m thinking for you it probably does  :) No harm.

If we draw against Chelsea in 2014 instead of lose, we go into the Palace game knowing any win will do and we don’t need to chase GD and most likely go on to win the title. I mean keep on the whinging, it’s fun to read, but you should know these things first.

I thought about this the other day, if we had drawn our game and then City had lost their game, we'd (certainly I would !) have been far positive this weekend coming into the next round of matches.
Funny how the idea of dropped points or earned points works. Perspective can be a mofo.

I sure hope we win tomorrow.
