I've switched to Leicester as our yardstick now in terms of who'll most likely be second when we win the league. They're going to overtake City.
If they win all of their next 6 games and get to 67 points we need to have 89 points by then. 16 more points required. 5 wins and a draw.
Which is Palace at home if we likewise beat everyone til then.

No way Leicester is going to win all 6. They have games with Wolves and City to come and i see dropped points there.

Two of the choices are ultimate humiliation, so would a guard of honour. I would like the guard of honour, which would mean we have to win it at home to crystal palace, correct? (guard of honour is pre game I think). I just want to hear what type of reception we will get at city. I assume it will be extremely negative from the supporters, which will reinforce the view that they are a small time club with no class.

Blue moon is suggesting they would do the poznan while booing. So yes, as you say small time and no class.

of our remaining fixtures, where would we MOST want to have a guard of honor? i'd say newcastle, but god forbid we have to wait that long to win the title :)

A deliciously bitter Man City guard of honour complete with a half empty stadium of frothing tin-foilers would be the icing on the cake, but I'm still trying to keep up a degree of "realism" (if you could even call it that given how this season's gone) by refusing to abandon the one game at a time mantra.

We still have Everton and their cup final as well as a few relegation candidates fighting for survival in the next 6 game stretch so nothing's a given, even with this team.

Massively tempting I agree although it would also be nice if we could be confirmed as champions there by swatting them to one side, or even a VAR decision to really tip them over the edge.

Away from home I know which would ultimately be better but the temptation to watch them squirm is very real to me.

It's the 93rd minute... Liverpool leading 1-0...Sterling scores the equalizer. The crowd goes into hysterics because they think they've denied Liverpool the title on their home turf.

Then...



I'd explode.

I'm really going to enjoy these guard of honours. It's very unlikely we'd get it won prior to Goodison, but if we did, then they'll be in turmoil about it.

If they give us one, then it'll be hilarious. If they don't, then how petty it is will be even funnier.

The City game against West Ham has to be rearranged after being cancelled today due to Storm Ciara. Who knows if this will have to be really late in the season now. If our success in the FA cup continues and we best the chavs, our league game against Palace clashes with the QF round.
It looks like neither team will have played enough by the end of March in the league for us to have the points on the board required for their relatively large number of games remaining.

Regardless we will have played 5 of 6 we require. If we were to go out of the FA Cup then we will have played the 6 required regardless of what they do if we have won those 6 then.

Probably turns it to the case of city having to do a must win against Liverpool to stop Liverpool from winning the league at their home.

IF that thing happens, I don't want the confirmation anywhere else except in our home Anfield. All the Reds local and non-local will be there and Shankly, Fagen, Moran and Paisley would be so proud. It would not be the same anywhere else.

I don't want it at the Emptihad, I have no time for their bitter delusional fans.

Is correct.

In my opinion, we don’t want to get sucked into this petty shit. I’m not saying just ignore all the noise, but when it comes to winning the thing for the first time in thirty years, and when you think of the players that have graced this club in that time, the battles, the highs, the lows, the fans and staff that passed away in the meantime and won’t get to live that moment.....

Having that moment at a temporary rival is almost insulting.



Spin it another way, let’s say we won it in ‘07 to break up that mourinho team........looking back, would you really have liked it to be at the bridge?......





I can’t see how anyone would prefer it at the emptyhad, the rivalry is fledgling at best, petty, manufactured and undeserving of our biggest moment in 30 years.....it’s beneath us.
