    That Yaya Toure has a fine set of feet on him for a big man.

    Is the final usually on Sky?

    Tevez is criminally underused.

    The Sky pundits seem a bit confused. Ray and Quinn were saying Benitez would be the happier manager at HT and Neville's just said City have been the better side all afternoon.

    What is it with Benitez and taking his best player off? In 2009 at Liverpool, if they were struggling for a goal, he'd take Torres off and put Dossena or some other defender/midfielder on (and sometimes Ngog).

    It'll be great if Chelsea keep Benitez until the end of the season

    It pisses me off that players are still falling over themselves to sign for Chelsea. Even the Sunday rags today are claiming Fellaini is "desperate" to join them.

    I think the transfer window should count for managers as well.

    Why would that not be the case?

    Had Chelsea won today, I think they would have finished above City come end of the season.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    When you can, do you mean should? (and will)

    I really don't think Chelsea will finish top four, both Arsenal and Tottenham will overtake us, and we were lucky that Norwich scored so late yesterday to keep Everton off our heels too.

    Next 6 games for Chelsea, Tottehnam and Arsenal

    Arsenal

    v Tottenham (A)
    v Everton (H)
    v Swansea (A)
    v Reading (H)
    v West Brom (A)
    v Norwich (H)

    Chelsea

    v West Brom (H)
    v Fulham (A)
    v West Ham (H)
    v Southampton (A)
    v Sunderland (H)
    v Tottenham (H)

    Tottenham

    v West Ham (A)
    v Arsenal (H)
    v Liverpool (A)
    v Fulham (H)
    v Swansea (A)
    v Everton (H)



    Chelsea have the easiest games, and might extend their lead a bit.
    Obviously the big one is the NLD next week. I'll take a point if Tottenham win at Upton park tomorrow

    Chelsea are far better positioned to finish top four than either Spurs or Arsenal. It would a joke if they didn't. Although the same was true last season.

    I'd be very surprised if we missed out on top four if I'm honest.

    As much as he's derided for it, if there's anything Wenger knows, its how to get top four. A result next Sunday is vital though.

    It's out of his hands.

    You might as well list all the games, there's only 11 left now. Chelsea's hard games come after the next six. The end the season on Liverpool away, Swansea home, United away, Villa away and Everton at home. Spurs are as good as Chelsea right now, they have a chance of finishing above them if they can hold their form. I think Arsenal will miss out.

    Ill say Chelsea are still slightly favourites to finish 3rd and should really get top 4. But eh, they've got Benitez!
    Worry is Arsenal usually finish strong when they are fighting for 4th (which they are this year) but choke when they are going for the title.

    With your track record I'm actually quite glad it's in your hands :D

    True enough. Still, it's gone to the last day a couple of times in recent years. If you carry on declining we'll finish above you eventually.

    Are people still convinced Bale is going to leave in the summer?

    I wouldn't say I'm convinced but I think it's more likely than not. If we don't make the CL I'd say it's pretty much a certainty.

    First time for awhile no-one major can leave (well, Sagna maybe but based on this season, meh).

    Next season will be the first season for ages that we'll be slightly better than the year before imo. Think Spurs need 4th to improve. It's so vital this year.

    Ronaldo will follow Mourinho to either City or Chelsea. Hopefully City just for the Man U lols.

    You don't want the second best player and the best manager in the world?
