is it over?

Recommended Posts


We're halfway through the season. To throw in the towel already would be ludicrous. Everything is possible in football, the point difference can be made up, but we need some radical improvement, otherwise the Mancs can drop points and we're none the wiser. Today I'm depressed, tomorrow I'll think Hell yes, we can still do it!

If you take everything into consideration - injuries, the way our luck seems to be going this season, the niggly way Jose seems to be dealing with the dip in form, and the way Manyoo are going - I can't see us overhauling the six points. I've said it before, I believe Jose is a pragmatist, and at some point in the future he'll accept that there are other fish to fry and concentrate on the cups. Killing the squad in a lost cause would be foolish - and I believe he's almost at that point now where he'll look at the players and decide that one or two more poor games will mean curtains for the Premiership and look towards saving players for the Carling Cup Final (assuming we get there!) and the FA Cup, but more importantly the Champions League.

I can't deny that at the moment I feel like the old movie quote "Game over, man! Game over!".

Us dropping point after point and struggling like mad just to get a draw while Manchester United just has that flow that makes them play great and win games with 3-0/4-0.

So everytime we concede a goal I can't help thinking "Another one. That's just so bloody great. We're screwed." and "Perhaps we can atleast win the Carling Cup?".

Yes, I'm rather gloomy atm.

But looking at the table one can't deny that we are not out of it yet. It's only 6 points (and a s*itload of goals).

There's still many games to be played and ManU has to face us, Arsenal, Liverpool and other good teams.

And while we have suffered injuries on key players and had a bad form for most of the season ManU has had everything going with them so far.

What are the odds that they won't get for example Rooney or Ronaldo injured? And what are the odds that they won't have a bad run?

Anything can still happen. Perhaps Arsenal (God forbid) ends up top of the table?

We will get JT back soon and then we'll get Cech back. Two very important players for us.

Perhaps we'll buy a couple of players in january that fits in perfectly with the team and makes us stronger?

Perhaps Ballack and Sheva finally hits the spot and start playing the way they are famous for?

So is it over? Of course not. It's pretty far from over. It's nowhere near over. Over is so far away that we can't even see it.

We can still win the title (and the other three too biggrin.gif ) but at the moment I can't help feeling a bit down :cry:

Again, dropping points, leaky defence, missing chances and a terrible GD compared to the Manks - is it too late and can we make up the difference before the end of May, or is it all over this season and must we accept second place?

But we do have our Chelsea back don't we Lauren!!

Chelsea sh*t over the Xmas period - now that takes quite a few of us back!!

Charlton 4-2 (2003/2004) away a couple of seasons back also 2-2 with Ipswich (2000/2001) srping to mind.

Southampton 2-4 at home on New Year's day 2002. Ugh!

Thinking positively I remember the 83-84 season we drew both our Christmas fixtures at home 2-2 (Pompey and Palace I think). We went on to win the old second division title against the odds from Sheffield Wednesday on the ast day of the season. A repeat would be sweet :tease:

Oh my god! you all are too negative! Only 6 points behind, and Chelsea must play against Manchester at Old Trafford. 6 points are 2 matches and the half of the matches still remains...

In 2003/2004 Bar?a was 18 points behind Real Madrid at Christmas, and at the end of the season we finished in the second position and they were 4th!!

Aport from this, Manchester are making an incredible season, they have a lot of points considering the dates where we are.

I remember Arsenal winning the league with more than 90 points and Chelsea was second with 80 points more or less. With more than 80 points you often win the league, but if there is a team which have obtained more points you'll only have to accept it, and recognize that they have made better, that wouldn't mean that your team has made a very good season too.

I dont know if I have explained myself in a correct way, I'm not English and sometimes I have difficulties.

I'm not going to pretend that everything is hunky dory, but I think people just need to calm down a little bit...we are having a major blip, but are still only 6 points back, that's two wins for us and two defeats for united..At the moment they have to be favourites, but if you think how quickly united's lead had gone up from 2 to six in just two games, the same can happen in reverse.

BUT...certain players have to pull their finger out and start earning their wages...the time for ballack to coast is over, sheva has to stop feeling sorry for himself and carvalho has to lead the defence much better than he has been...today was one of the worst defensive performances by Chelsea in recent years

Calm down says Brit , and he's absolutely right . Look at it this way .

We are playing crap but were still only 6 points behind . A LONGGGGGGGG way to go and im confident if any manager can turn our form around its J.M. Plenty of points up for grabs and i dont believe for 1 miniute that United are the finished article and the best team in the premiership. If we were to start our first choice fit starting 11 every week then the whole issue would change dramatically .United are a good side , playing well and good to watch but if you consider our appauling injuries to key players , were STILL up their arse .

Chelsea sh*t over the Xmas period - now that takes quite a few of us back!!

The classic to end all classics was Boxing Day 1973 - 2-0 up against the Spammers at half-time - lost 2-4 - Hudson and Osgood soon out the door. The current crisis is nothing compared to that !!!!

We're just victims of our own success over the last two seasons. When you set the bar so high everyone notices when you have trouble maintaining it. No matter what to maintain that level week-in, week out over several seasons is nigh on impossible.

Sir Fergie and his players know it's not over - so do ours, a couple of good results, the bonus of reaching the Carling cup final, progression in the FA cup and it'll all be blue tinted again

I'm a bit depressed but still optimistic.

A Forest manc down the village tried taunting me this morning. I asked him how he thought the Mancs would do if they suddenly lost Van der Saar, Vidic, Shrek and Ronaldo at the same time. he went a bit quiet and then said that he prayed that wouldn't happen because they would also then struggle to finish off muppet teams.

It also pissed me off that low-life teams treat a match against my CFC as their Cup Final and run about a f**k of a lot (See Wigan, Reading, Foolham etc) while they don't appear to put in the same effort and application against the Mancs!

yesterday's game was a mix of comedy defending, comedy finishing, bad luck with the woodwork and some V dubious refereeing decisions. Exactly the same could be said about reading and the Wigan game and several others this season - AND WE ARE STILL ONLY 6 POINTS ADRIFT!

Keep the effing faith people - at least until it's mathematically impossible for us to win it. And then, if that dire day ever comes, be magnaminous to the Mancs who will have OUR Premiership on loan for a year
