Because it impacts when you rotate and it depends on who you are playing in other competitions. We got to play Chelsea twice in a week, played Spurs,played City and PSG all in 3 weeks time, with internationals in-between. So how is it not important?

We just played 9 fixtures in December, with huge intensity against Napoli,United,Arsenal and City and then played Wolves away who outside of the top teams are the most difficult side to play against.



Because the point I made was in reference to the upcoming committments of both them and us. We can forget who played who in the earlier rounds now, it's irrelevant as we're not even 2 of the competitions.

You're missing my point. They've been able to progress further because of the draws have favored them as opposed to what we've had.

So with 51 points to play for what does everybody think the minimum we need to get points wise , 96,98,100?

Personally think we'll need 98 min

Iím with you I think Man City will get 47 points so we need 44 to get 98. Easy peasy.

The maximum that city can get is 101. There's no way they are only dropping 3 points till the end. I imagine they will drop at least 8 points, if not more. 93-94 should do it. Which means we can drop 11 points and still be in the driving seat.

I think the only way Man City donít reach 97-98 points is if they donít have to. Like if we tank in the 2nd half of the season.

5 matches in the next 33 days.

We have to treat them like 5 finals. As if they are the 5 most important matches of the entire season. For if we get 15 points we may well open up an unassailable lead.

I think we're both getting our wires crossed. My point is that it will be interesting to see if the extra games coming up for Spurs will affect their league form or whether they can close the gap on us despite us having fewer committments.

We'll see. They definitely look more vulnerable than last season. If we can beat Brighton then we extend to 7 points again and City have to wait until Monday to play Wolves. If they drop points in the next two or three games and we don't, I think they'll do it a bit more often. Right now it's about who can regroup, focus and win the most on the trot. Think the first to blink is under real, real pressure.

Brighton will not be an easy game. They have a very good home record. That said, I think I've got a bit of a feel for our group of lads, I reckon they're pissed off, motivated and fucking desperate to win. Which will hopefully mean Brighton are in for a hell of a game.

I would be shocked if Man City only drop 3/4 points in the rest of the season. Yes it's true that they have already played us and we could have been one of the teams to take points off of them, but they will drop points elsewhere too. They've already dropped 13 points at just past the halfway point after all. It would be implausible for them to drop so few, especially since, as seems likely, Pep will be under pressure to go far in the CL.

City need 2.76/2.82 points per game to reach 97/98 points. They've averaged 2.38 so far this season, they averaged 2.41 in the last 17 of last season (so 2.4 over their last 38 league games); 2.63 over the whole of last season.

They averaged 2.81 over the first 21 games last season. That's the level they need to rediscover, now, to reach 97/98 points. They're not playing at that level; they haven't been, consistently, since the end of 2017.

And when push comes to shove in their hectic schedule, the owners and manager's priority is the CL.

After 21 games last season, City had 59 points (2 draws against Everton and Palace I think).

They got 41 points in their last 17 games -W13 D2 L2.

I think if we can replicate their points tally from the last 17 games from last season then we should have enough. That would put us on W30 D5 L3 and 95 points.

City would need to win at least 14 games out of 17 to be level on points with us. If we get to 95 points and they beat us then fair fucks to them.

I personally don't see both teams getting +95 points with the ramping up of domestic cup and CL commitments.
I think Jookie might just be the best fisherman on this thread.

Pep's teams are often great front-runners so it'll be interesting to see how he reacts to having to chase us. It isn't in his hands anymore and that can mess with you. Pep lost his rag last Thursday when his team were 2-1 up, how is he going to react when his team are 1-0 down away at a side fighting for their lives, perhaps also knowing that we won earlier in the day or the day before (I'm not sure how the fixtures go but I'm sure that scenario is possible at some point).

Should we beat Brighton on Saturday, City don't play until Monday. Regardless of them having a game in hand, they would be 7 points behind. Going into a game against a very decent Wolves side, it would surely play on their minds 'We beat the fuckers last week and but now they're 7 points clear again'. I'm not saying the City players are mentally weak or anything of the sort, but it is a completely different proposition for them now. I mean look at the bus incident last year. Was it nice? No, and the handful of dickheads from our lot should be ashamed. But they made the biggest song and dance about it that they could, it clearly affeted them and they made out like we had fired scud missiles directly at their bus.

City can be rattled, Pep can be rattled, we just need to stir the pot and bring it out of them by winning games.

If they go at the rate they went at last season (2.63) then they will get to 94-95. It's extremely unlikely that they will go at a faster rate than that.

13 wins, 3 draws and a loss gets us to 96 (or even 14 wins and 3 losses). That will do it. Lots of room to drop points, no pressure to win every single one, and that will allows us to gain points at a slower rate than we have been so far. Can't expect the team to go on another 9 win streak. But two runs of 5+ each time will get us incredibly close.

Agreed, I think 95+ for us will be enough. Hopefully, we stockpile the wins nice and early, and City (and Spurs) tail off and we can even put a bit of effort into the CL games :). The sooner we have the points, the fewer we probably need.

I understand you donít agree with me but to say itís implausible for them to drop so few is wrong. We ourselves have just gone 20 games only dropping 6 points.

I want to be wrong, I really do but I honestly think theyíll get 47+ points from their remaining fixtures.

Youíre right, weíll only know who was right come the end of the season.

Brighton will be very difficult. We have to find a way to win tho. Nothing else will do.

There are only 51 points available, so they'd basically have to be perfect to get more than 47 points. It's doable, for sure. I think the deeper they go in the CL, though, the more points they'll begin to drop.

We're also capable of doing the same though.

I just think they got their Ďpickfordí moment last week and will go on a massive winning run now. We have to do the same.

So then the question is, do you think we're capable of doing the same? Because we only need to win 14 and draw 2 to win the league, in that scenario. So we could even afford to lose a game and still come out on top.

That means City only dropping 4 points from here doesnít it? I know theyíre very good but a lot of past evidence points to teams dropping more than that. Iím sticking with a paltry 95.

i think 95 will win it too

The best chance we have here is to be twatted by Bayern Munich and for them to get to the final.

I'd be happy for them to win it - if it meant we won the league.

Thing is, we have much lower workload then City before the international break before the CL quarterfinal. That's when our focus can be decided.  If we lead by 10 pts by then, or whatever, why not try and focus on both competitions? If we are too close for comfort, I'd wish we prioritize the League.

The thing I feared most about a City win more than the lost points, is handing them any kind of initiative or boost for the rest of the season. Now they have got that, it's imperative we get back to winning ways and go on a run and then we can hope that they eventually slip up once that boost of beating us is forgotten and the cup games start to catch up with them (if they do).

I'm still confident given our defensive record and with Gomez on the way back we can go on just a run. Also, hopefully Fabinho is here to stay in the first XI and Klopp persists with a 4-2-3-1, especially away from home having learnt his lesson at City, Napoli, PSG et al.

95 points should be enough unless City get 51+points over the second half of the season (they had 44 for the first half). Which means we then need 44 for the second half of the season. 14 wins, 2 draws and 3 defeats would do it. We already have 1 of those wins in the bag v Arsenal and 1 defeat v City, so on paper it doesn't look too ominous. 14 wins from the last 17 would pretty much guarantee it but that's a tall order.

I'm not sure about the twatted part, not good for morale but a narrow defeat would be acceptable if it meant winning the league again finally. As for City I really can't want them to win the CL I want it to be the monkey on their back for the forthcoming seasons distracting them year after year so we can win title after title. A hard fought defeat in the semis would be ideal, demoralising them right at the business end of the league.

This really caught my eye - massive difference in workload right here. They very nearly have double our games. I can only assume Spurs are similar to City (and yes I don't think we can forget about Spurs until they go away).

It's pretty telling looking at that. And I've said it before it's not just about rest for the players. It's the manager [I think this really applies to city as he's such a 'thinker', shall we say], the staff, the logistics, everything. Even the fans. It's a head frying amount of games the longer you go on, and the pressure just increases each time.

I think 95 will be enough. It might even be less. City have dropped [I think] 13 points so far? If they drop another 7 in this half of the season, just over half the amount dropped so far, 95 would be enough. Which in turn would mean 13 wins and a couple of draws for us from this point.

City have consistently dropped more points in the second half the season since Guardiola arrived. I think them dropping 7 points, after already dropping 13 points so far, is not beyond the realms of possibility. Especially with them still in it for all the Cups.

Iíd be happy for anyone to win it if we win the league.
Fuck that, I don't want City to get their dirty paws anywhere near ol' big ears. They can win the PL for the next 30 years but they'll always feel empty without the Champions League, long may it evade them.

We are going to be at our optimum fitness in the title run in and hopefully latter stages of the CL

How have we done following these previous training camps? We seem to do them every season but do we tend to come back and do well from them?

well the one reassuring thought after these two losses is the realization that Jurgen Klopp is laser focused on winning the title because its been decades and its what the people want. and hes got form and an outstanding platform to work from.

Game on. go team.
Damn that Mane's good!
