I can't remember the last time the top six was so up in the air as it is this year.
I know a 1-0 win at Burnley looked dodgy, but City had about 30 attempts and on another day they would have scored four or five.
I still can’t see them dropping points and it would take a brave gambler to bet against Pep Guardiola lifting the Premier League trophy.
Unfortunately, that’ll be more than devastating for all those Cape Liverpool fans who seem to be wearing club colours day and night.
The drama, success and failure that can happen in the final few games of the season is almost upon us.
And what I’m afraid for (from a Liverpool perspective) is that all the loud-mouth banter, all the Man United p!ss taking and all the big liver bird chests that are sticking out at the moment, might just shrivel away like a winky in an ice bath in the next two weeks.
It will be devastating and I’m not saying I’m praying for it, but to all you ombeskofte grootbek Scousers out there, man, I hope it goes well for you cos I’m gonna take the biggest skommel of my life if you end up with nothing.
You see, those of us who’ve been through this year after year for many years, and that could include Liverpool fans born pre-1970, it ain’t over till it’s over and the euphoria of a potentially glorious season can, in the space of a game or two, turn into a depressing football tragedy.
Some good advice from me might be to keep it shut for now, enjoy the progress, but don’t set yourself up for disaster.
It’s much like Spurs at the moment, the strong probability is they’ll be celebrating a new stadium this year with a team that doesn’t quite match its architectural splendour.
I’ve had a continuous stream of banter from Spurs fans, but the truth is, despite Chelsea having a relatively [email protected] season, we could quite easily end up above them in the table.
The race for Champions League places is incredible.
I’ve never experienced pressure having such a negative effect on top sides.
I mean look at Fulham at the moment. Once they were relegated the whole team started playing and well too!
Top-tier teams and coaches have never looked so dodgy.
The difference between City and Liverpool and the failing pack behind them is that pressure is being managed so well.
The greatest sides have always differentiated themselves by playing their game, enjoying their football and not buckling under stress.
Think of United under Fergie, Chelsea under Jose Mourinho, Arsenal's Invincibles - there was just no way to break these sides.
After watching the absolutely pathetic last few games Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal and United have played - all chasing such an important prize - I wonder how long it’ll be before Liverpool and City will be challenged.
The gap is huge and the stakes get higher and higher every season.
It feels like major changes regarding structure, players and coaching staff at the small four of the big six is imminent.
It’s seasons like this that I decide to disengage a bit, write it off and let it get done.
The strong likelihood (at Chelsea anyway) is that the owner (or new owner) will swallow a bit of cash, wipe the slate clean and start again.
For me, the enjoyment of watching my club has disappeared this year.
I don’t go into any game expecting to be entertained or more importantly, made proud.
When I think of the passion and fight amongst the John Terry, Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard teams, makes me wanna spit at the TV.
City will probably win the league, Barca get the Champions League and Spurs and Chelsea third and fourth for Europe next season.
For now good people, be humble, cross your fingers and hope for the best!
