Is it still on, I thought the Cup had been awarded to the team from Liverpool some months ago, but if you lot think we can then YES OF COURSE.

Ain't got a fucking clue. We like winning but have shown to lose when we've had fixture pile ups. Dippers seem to enjoy their draws so only pick up a third of the points where everybody expects a win. It's all so close at the moment.

I would take the league over Champions Cup at this time of year.

Advantages:
- Experience - we have that and know how to hand this type of pressure.
- The Squad - Superior players over the criminals in every single department, if you ask me.
- Pep - arrogant, but briliant and he doesn't slip (punt intended).
- Somehow, we have an easier fixture list in my opinion

Disadvantages:
- Playing in all competitions vs potential 9 games for Scouse (if Bayern knocks them out).
- Injuries - KDB, Mendy, Delph, Fernie, Laporte & Merlin out of his usual form.
- A potential knock out the UCL can affect our morale like it did last year in that game with rags at home.
- Our blackouts in key moments (Newcastle, Palace, Leicester).

It will be a really difficult race, but I don't want to get my hopes up. If there is any divine justice, we are going to win this, simple as that. The criminals don't deserve to win the title ever again.

I don't see the dippers winning eight out of eight and on that basis alone we only need seven wins out of eight. (Assuming goal difference holds up).

I actually think six wins and two draws for us will be enough.

Can we? Yes
Will we? We are favourites again now and we hold a slender advantage over the dippers but I fear fixture congestion will play its part. That said, when push comes to shove, I think we will win both remaining domestic cups but fall short in the CL.

A domestic treble has never been done before so would be over the moon if it happened

If we do this I will personally go and take us out of the Champions League.
That competition could be won next year, doing the domestic treble? Once in a lifetime.

How I see it. Every game is a cup final and every one we win I am over the moon. We’re in the middle of something special, let’s enjoy the ride while we can.

8 games left and we could win them all which would leave the dippers nowhere. Whilst that would be sweet, cannot see them beating both spurs and Chelsea particularity Chelsea. We play Fulham then probably an fa cup semi so will stack up the cardiff game and the dippers at some stage will work themselves into a mess and fall off as we reel in the games in hand. We will be 4-5 points clear before a party weekend in brighton
