we have achieved more than what we all thought we would this season.

Exactly. What's to be disappointed at.

I hesitated to say this earlier, because I did not want to possibly jinx things.

but since the turn of the year, I have felt something very special about this year.  And that was linked, not only to the way we were playing offensively, but also to the 96 souls who are now starting to find justice.....allbeit, some 25 years late.

I genuinely believe that the 96 are watching over us.  This is their year.

This season is not over.  It may be over after Monday night's game at Palace.  But for now, it is still on.

Everton win, we draw - title is back on.    Everton draw and we win - title is back on.   

But we have to beat City's result.

This is not over (yet).

Come on the bitters!

Dude, try these:  8)   Wow, suits you,  Sir.

Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Those who choose to preach would do well to take note of their own sermons.

That would be my only disappointment if we can't win the title. Finally, after all these years, the world has finally woken up to the truth, and the title, like the FA Cup, would have been a fitting tribute to the 96, and just as importantly, their families.

well said.

today's events at Goodison will be highly significant.

but it will be heartbreaking, if we did get a chance, and then could not take it at Palace, come Monday night.

Palace will be immensely difficult - unless Suarez finds his shooting boots again.

Palace will no doubt be a tough game so lets hope Rodgers´ability to learn quickly is still in place.

The run in has highlighted our need for a third striker and a couple of others (at least) capable of weighing in with a few goals, so we rely on no-one in particular. It's all a part of the pieces that the manager still has to assemble.

I'd rather he did it carefully, with quality not quantity, because as Arsenal have shown, and we've benefited by it, stability is key. Only Sakho and Mignolet out of the core of players used regularly this season, weren't at the club last season, so stability and continuity have proven beneficial this season.

Not adding a new face to the mix in January has also probably been a blessing in disguise.

It's Brendan, to you, Martin. Where's your respect for the man?  :D

It's a hope that the manager will learn from various points in the season. I think this season has shown he has learned certain things from last season, and hopefully next season will demonstrate further 'lessons learned' (I do love that song)  :D  from this one.

The league's best defence since chavvy w@nker took over.

1-1  after 37 mins

aguero, the wee bugger, equalised, before getting injured (and subbed).

At least he is off - but the return of Toure has transformed City.

He is THE difference in good City, and exceptional City.

So cash is king after all. Gutted to see the gypsy score two extremly easy goals. I hope we lay down and die just like they did the next time they need a helping hand. Absolutely gutted to see us lose the title this way. CL qualification is good an'all but this was the chance we had to win the title. It ain't gonna happen any time soon.
