let's batter them. let's win. Let's pray to a non-existent god for a f***ing miracle

 

Whatever happens, proud of the team, use it as the 1992 moment if we don't get that miracle

 

if Villa do amaze us and win, we are in pole position, we must remember that!

We all need to do some weird crazy praying / voodoo / sacrifice our pets etc, to somehow try to get Villa to win on Wed. Think the odds are accurate - Villa are about 10-1 to win... so you never know. But f*** - feel so, so much worse now than after the Chelsea match, and I wouldn't have thought that possible at the time. Sometimes I really do wish I didn't like football.

f*** me, I'm broken. Villa 20-1. 10-1 for the draw.

 

Maybe Allardyce will be our saviour on Sunday (not that West Ham's odds will be any shorter) but Allardyce masterminding a win vs. City, with Nolan, Carroll and Downing all contributing would be a fitting end to the season (assuming we then beat Newcastle). f***. f***. f***. Really is the hope that does it.

I don't feel anywhere near as bad as I did after Chelsea and the Everton - City games. I think deep down after those games I knew we will need a huge miracle to actually win it.

 

I'm quite ok with the situation, we still need the big miracle to happen in either of City's games and we beat Newcastle to win the title. And even if it doesn't happen tomorrow, we are still in with a chance during the game on Sunday. Anything can happen in an individual football match, red cards, freak incidents (like Gerrard's slip), own goals, super goalkeeping performances etc.

 

10/10 for the lads this season in any case. Amazing to still be in with a chance.

We will hopefully be too busy listening out for the other score to be thinking about any party.

 

I hope Villa show as much commitment as Palace did last night on Wednesday, then we might be.

I mentioned it in the other thread... I guess there has to be a trophy at both Etihad and Anfield for the match as a precaution?

Imagine being a player knowing you are so close to the thing.. All the podium and all that stuff..

 

f*** me I'm gutted

In the unlikely event City don't win tomorrow night they'll have to have one at Cardiff as well

Will there be another welcome to the stadium? Should be an even better one than v Chelsea.

 

There should be. Even though at the moment it feels like I've been gutted by an ice cream scoop, the team has been brilliant this season. They deserve the acclaim.

Very much with you on that. Needed an unexpected result if we won last night, need an unexpected result - or combination of results - still. That's not 'throwing it away', we're still in the space where we could be champions next Sunday, as we were before. I can't get too uptight over perceived marginal calls on the relative unlikeliness of the circumstances falling our way.

 

Of course I'm pissed about losing a 3 goal lead, but I would be even if that has been a mid-table nothing match. But it didn't make that much of a fundamental change in our chances imo.

 

(Part of me thinks that luring City into a false sense of security, that they can draw one game, will work in our favour. I think that was in Brendan's thoughts last night when he bigged up their chances. Fwiw, I'd take all options, but my preferred mode of victory anyway now would be a win at Anfield then listening for the final whistle at the Etihad and a barely believable outcome. Not sure I could handle going into Sunday in pole position.)

 

The reception outside the ground and at the match next week should be even bigger and louder than before. These are f***ing heroes for what they have done so far, and as of next Sunday afternoon kick-off, and for the subsequent 90 minutes right up until the final whistle, we now know that it will definitively and exhiliratingly, not be over. Lets have a party.

Exactly. Let's not let last night's debacle cloud things, the team have been superb this season and deserve all of our appreciation. They're probably feeling as down as we are about it, so let's gee them up and give them the motivation to smash the absolute piss out of Newcastle.

wonder how many are offering 1500 a ticket now. Team has earned a proper celebration at Anfield on Sunday then a proper f***ing transfer window.

 

potentially 84 points and with a chance to win the league going into the last game of the season. Can't ask for much more really, can we? if a draw and one loss were in the middle of 11 wins then we would be going bouncing into this last game.
