    Have been saying City all season so not going to stop now.

    Really no idea though, can make a good case for any of the three right now but all have their faults.

    As I've said all season - it's Chelsea vs Man City. As it stands, I feel that City have the better team, but Chelsea have the easier fixtures. Went with City for the poll, because Smittens. <3

    Liverpool will struggle for third.

    Chavs and Citeh both have to go to Anfield yet, don't they?

    The Arse's bottom has dropped out of it. I think actually the loss to Stoke was more damaging than the various bending overs we're had from the other three teams in the race. If we bring home some silverware it'll be the FA Cup now.

    Liverpool shouldn't win and, with Rodgers in charge, a small part of me still hopes they don't, but they're balls deep in this despite the glaring shortcomings in defence.

    Chelsea are the best organised, Liverpool in the best form, City have the best squad.

    Gun to head, I'd say Chelsea.

    Chelsea's loss to Villa put a spanner in the works and it's back in Citeh's hands but they do have a lot of tough fixtures coming up. I still think Chelsea might have this.

    I just think that Chelsea are less prone that City to mess up when it matters, so I'm with Brumbly and Uppercut.

    Shame, as I'd enjoy Liverpool winning it this year.

    I have said City all season but edging towards Chelsea now as City can't slip up in many of their nightmare away games at Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton. They might play well and still only get 4 points out of those games.

    Liverpool realistically have to beat both Chelsea and City to win the league. Even if they beat both it's still not in their hands. I am still worried about them but they are still clear third favourites IMO.

    Still have Chelsea as slight favourites out of them and City.

    Why is it that Brumby hates Rodgers again?

    I've heard from an inside source that Chelsea are not actually in the title race.

    If you're so inclined I think you'll find the answers in last season's footy thread. It was that being Liverpool series that did it for him I think

    It's weird that Arsenal will still only be 4 points behind Chelsea if they win their game in hand, but yeah, they're gone from it.

    Like Pothas, I'm backing City.

    It would be just like Arsenal to beat City next week and put a spanner in that prediction, mind you. Not unlike when they beat them at the Emirates two years back.

    Arsenal's run-in is a doss on paper though, so wouldn't be surprised to see them finish higher than 4th. Not that I would back them to do so at the moment, but it wouldn't astonish me.

    There was a lot of cringe but he comes across as less of an arsehole than most managers, just a different brand of arsehole, the variety more commonly found in offices than in football. But his former players do speak very highly of him.
