    -----------------------------------

    If we're going to do a new post each time there's a change then hopefully others can chip in posting the table etc.

    I'll do it when I'm around and will also copy/paste into the OP. Gonna go with the "both" option from the questions I asked, seems like it would satisfy the most people.

    I've always considered the last 8 games to be the true league 'run in' but we're 9 points clear with only 5 games to go until we get there, and after the last week we are in a wonderful position. Great stuff.

    Magic number is 31. Any combination of points gained by Utd or lost by City.

    Too long to scroll on mobile phone.

    The positive is I like seeing how far low Liverpool is.

    18 points between them and QPR, 27 between us and them.

    Would be nice to pad the gd too. As things stand it isn't worth considering as it is now.

    are we sure about the math here?

    Absolutely. If City were to catch us, they clearly would have a vastly superior goal difference. Right now the GD is +3 in our favor, if they catch us - that's 3 losses by us and 3 wins by them. -3 GD for us (losing by 1 goal), +3 GD for City (winning by 1 goal), so they'd be ahead by at least 3 goals, probably more.

    Yeah. I'd love it if by the time we faced them it was healthier by like 5 or 6 just to put more pressure on them.

    Yeah, Liverpool have 35 points, QPR have 17, we have 62.

    Edit: They have 36, so 19 between them and 26 between us. Need to update the table.

    We have to take the chance to go 13 points clear tomorrow, now. It would leave us needing...

    - 8 wins out of 11, (or 7 wins and 3 draws), if we lose the 12th to City.
    - 7 wins out of 11 (or 6 wins and 2 draws), if we draw with City.
    - 6 wins out of 11 (or 5 wins and 2 draws), if we beat City.

    ...to win the league. And that is if City win all 11 of their other games, which does not look even close to happening.

    Not going to happen, but if things keep up as they are and we win tomorrow followed by a winning streak (easy fixtures) while City continue to falter (difficult fixtures), we could wind up going to the Emirates playing to win the title!

    Long way to go. And we do have a considerably tougher run-in, especially with the CL games we've got.

    Nah, just dizzy from finally seeing him "flat track bully" than free kick in. ;)

    Feel sorry for me though, I woke up next to a kebab with the worst hangover I have had in years... :(

    I forgot how hard it is to score on Newcastle. But pretty much everything I said about bale was shown in the match billy. He was nowhere to be seen until Newcastle granted him acres of space.

    Funny that, I was half-watching the game up until a few minutes before his goal. I noticed your "he has only done two things in an hour" comment... and then I noticed in the remaining 10 minutes the three goals he nearly scored (two great efforts and saves, one a terrible miss) and the should-have-been-a-goal he sent in from a corner. You never acknowledged that he has more to his game, such as set pieces, so it was certainly not all on display. ;)

    Of course, that is to ignore the fact that he has also scored against Reading, Norwich, Villa (x3), Southampton, West Ham, Liverpool, Arsenal... oh, and us just recently to tie the game up at the death. :)
