    Great minds think alike.

    Conte think top 6 has chance for title. Jose at 6th now. What he implies is it is between us & Jose for the title.

    I also think the same. City might be outsiders for title.

    Pool & Goons to fight for remaining of top 4.
    Spuds to implode after Europa. Top 6 will be great for Poch.

    He's just being cautious and not discounting anybody only for the reasons where he doesn't say something stupid like Jose would like 'Liverpool & united' are out of the title race? There's a 9, 10& 12 point gap between us and 4th it's not impossible but highly unlikely given Contes drive & passion Stan.

    Ps. Stop the Jose love in mate you're a year too early.

    Not ruling out your lot to be honest.

    On current form (especially important this phase of the season), the 2 Manc clubs could take 2nd and 3rd, with 'Pool, Spurs and Arsenal scrapping for 4th, with the Goons most likely to take it. :(

    Interesting times ahead.

    Don't think so mate, you've got the quality, as well as no Euro distractions, to see it out as winners.

    I agree , especially when we Swans kick their arse next game after only getting 1 from Burnley . Man City will more than than likely win their game and be 5 points behind .

    yea, that's pretty much the way I see it, Chelsea would need a injury crisis, a very bad one, which is less likely the fewer games you play. they have City at Home and United away as their only rivals left to play (I can see them winning the league at OT in front of Jose', anyone got the odds?). They won't have to do as much 'resting' players as the others, so any points they drop will be dropped by the chasing pack.

    If Swansea got anything out of that game yesterday it would have been a travesty. Oh and it wasn't a foul for their goal. Right result, definitely.
