    I saw them on match of the day, I think Arsenal can win the title.

    The best team we've seen at the CCS way above the others, can they keep this form up for 38 games ? Hope so.

    It's only 4 points. Moyes Man U are 12 points behind the Gooners and he has been quoted in the press saying his team can still win the title!

    Anything can happen because we've seen some crazy results in the prem this time but I see us improving whilst Cardiff are going backwards. Teams around them (Palace/ Fulham) are playing well and getting results. I even think Poyet might get the Mackems out of trouble. This has to be a worry.

    Utd , not this year , fergi bailed out when the timing was right ,poor squad and a reluctance to spend will cost them this year ,Arsenal for me and I'd like to see it just for Wenger , excellent manager who's done fantastic to cosistantly get them into the top 4 without spending (in comparative terms ) big money ,he's been a money making machine for them

    It does look unlikely buy hey, Gooners have dropped 2 points against Everton today.

    Everton are flying with one defeat all season and could have pinched it at the end but they're not not going to win it but will keep Utd out of the top 4 imo

    Personally I think Fergie realised that he had won the title in an unexceptional year with an average team that was on the downgrade ... I doubt things would have been much different if he'd have stayed on, unless he had brought in a number of players in the summer

    It would only be good for the prem if the likes of Arsenal, Spurs or Everton win the league IMO

    OK guys - here we go again.

    After this weekend, we sit 3 points behind Swansea going into the Christmas fixtures. A couple of home games for us against Southampton and Sunderland, whilst Swansea take to the road and have a couple of away fixtures at Chelsea and Villa.

    Any thoughts as to the relative table positions and points gap either way going into the New Year's day game?

    Us above by a point. Draw with The Saints and a win over Sunderland.

    Can't see Swansea getting anything from Chelsea, Villa can be awful at times but do Swansea have the fire power ? looks like 0-0 to me.

    Saints are going to be a tough one, can Malkly get the boys up for this one? we need for our fans to be the 12th man. We could come out with 6 points but more likely 4.

    Yup - I've got a feeling it'll be all square on points with the Swans above us on GD going into the New year games.

    I think we can get 4 points from our two games. Funnily enough, I think we'll get all three from the Saints but just one from the Sunderland visit (I may change that opinion after I watch the game on Boxing day).

    Should in all honesty be no return from Chelsea for Swansea, but a point is on the cards at Villa. They look very patchy at the moment, but Swansea will need to score to get any more than that.

    I see it that way too. I think Sunderland could be a real banana skin for us. If fans and players think we're going to cruise to 3 points we'll all end up disappointed.

    Hey mates!

    Sorry for offtopic. Is there anybody who attends to every home match or follows the bluebirds to many matches?
    If yes, then please send me a pm!

    Cheers and sorry for offtopic

    I'd have it the other way around I think Soton will be a much tougher match for you than Sunderland.
