Oh my. That analogy is perfect.

I'm sure you're enjoying this top four "chase" Locke, but yeah it ain't entertaining. The fair thing for UEFA would be to take the spot away, none of Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs or United deserve it, they all stink. 60 points is looking very likely for UCL.

Yeah, I really dont care all that much due to the nature of the teams involved.

That being said, based on the outcome of today's results it could be interesting, I really want to see Wolves and Sheffield sneak in and grab them.

I anticipated a carbon-copy of last season with City and Liverpool going head to head, remember when people were concerned because Liverpool did nothing in the Transfer window to shore up their back 4?

Matip was excellent until injury and Gomez has stepped in and looks like a top caliber CB and even Lovren was only giving up one goal a game in his limited minutes.

But City didnt do anything to shore up theirs either and its costing them. Further, it also shows that without purchases City have no depth. Theres no one in the Academy who could step in and step up in case of injuries. Laporte went down and they basically called it a day.

I was reading some reviews and my favourite reference to the 'Top 4 Chase' was "less of a chase and more of an undignified scramble."

As good as this season has been for Liverpool fans, likely having double the points of United after 24 matches is the cherry on top of the sundae.

There's still silver lining to this season if that happens!

I don't think 60 points is actually enough. Chelsea already has 40 and aren't there 42 left to play for? It's not going to be an amazing tally to get there, but 60 seems pretty light.

'Stole' is such a vulgar term, more like 'Dubiously Appropriated.'

Today though....today there might be some thievery...

Not looking forward to Wolves at Molineux.
