Lets not jinx it but....City have 14 games left with a maximum of 42 points up for grabs, meaning the most they can finish with is 93 points. We currently sit with 64 points meaning a minimum of 10 games gets us the title, PLUS we have 2 games in hand. The 10 game run begins tomorrow at Wolves, and ends with a clash at the Etihad on 4 April

And that date becomes closer every time City drop points :) Winning it at their place would be glorious as my mate has a box there ;)

I'm with @Jaytinho on this one. Klopp said we can sing what we want, and dream, and believe. (Only can't sing his name until the game is won).

And on Sunday, we made the ANNOUNCEMENT. We declared it - the thing we haven't sung.

So now we just get over the line. Thats it.
I don't care where it happens, I just want it to happen.

I think if we match City's results, then it is around 10 games.

Most important thing is Klopp and the players take it game at a time - as they have been doing all season. That won't change. They won't count anything yet. They will stay focused. Jeez they need to perform every game and as there's always someone on the bench waiting to take their chance.

But us fans, well we can dream. And believe. In fact we told Jurgen to "Make us Dream" and he told us to "Believe".

And whatever you say or not say, IT'S HAPPENING.

The best case scenario: City drop 9 pts in their 4 tough games coming up: Spurs, Leicester, Arsenal and United so that we win it on the 7th when we beat Bournemouth and because of the second leg match with Atletico at Anfield mid week and Goodison the following game, we have the best week of our lives. The players will be totally devastated mind that they can't really take any days off.
So to summarise
We win all the games up to and including Bournemouth giving us 85 points with 9 games to go (27pts max).
City only get to 57 pts because for example they lose three times (probably to three of the four difficult teams they face in Feb/March)
The Bournemouth game is on 7th March
we play Atletico as first time PL Champions of England, Europe and the World on the 11th and knock them out
and Everton host the English, European and World Champions on the 14th.

Don't Leicester cone back into play if City drop 9 points? Genuinely don't know as I haven't checked their points, but thought they were about 3 points behind. If they win all theirs while City drop points then we still have to keep winning past the 7th?

Man City aren't dropping nine points in 4 games though are they? Stick to what we have to do, anything they do that helps us is a pleasant surprise. Even if they do the every 3 games thing still it would only be at most 3 points.

I don't care about the invincible thing. If need be, then draw/lose a game just to ensure we win the league at Anfield. For the Anfield faithful, win right in front of them, for them and celebrate with them. That lot deserves a proper celebration.
The away support has been fantastic as well.
If you ask me it's a shame we can not win it at Olé Toilet, now that would have been a sound for sore ears.

Agree that the away support has been fantastic, as ever. But I want this celebration to be about our achievement, celebrated with our own who have been behind the team all the time, good or bad.
I simply do not want to win league away from home for the fear that our achievement may be overshadowed by any other reason. No need to rub in some one else's face.
We won in style and we celebrate in style.

Really I'm just hoping it doesn't go to the final day (away to Newcastle) like that every one gets the time needed to celebrate.
