30 points, 17 games gone, the Mancs and Arsenal coming up... if I were to believe Desailly MotD I'd say we were still in the mix for the title. He commented on Liverpool as still in with a shout so surely he would mention Everton in the same vien??? NOPE!!!
If we beat the Mancs it's possible, and turn over Arsenal, then surely we are title contenders. Any other team in any other league would be touted as such. Softly, softly, catch the monkey!!!

Feet firmly back on the ground now Us, City, someone else, to break up this top 4 bollox. Chelsea aren’t all there this season and the $hite are poor. 2 from the chasing pack to push on and knock these pretenders back

The games against UTD and Arsenal will tell us more about where we currently are in the pecking order than the past 12 games (assuming they are settled fairly on the pitch and not in some referees biased opinion on footballs hierachy). If we win them (and I am not saying we will) then we have every right to believe we can go all the way.
At this moment in time I am not EXPECTING us to beat UTD but I am HOPEFUL that we can. Likewise I am not expecting us to win the league but I do think we have a good chance of top 4.
It will be interesting to see what team plays at Alkmaar on Thursday. Will Moyes put the reserves out; risk losing the unbeaten run and rest the 1st 11 for Sunday or will he try to keep the run going and play a strong team. Will be a very interesting week.

1) the idea that we could be in a position to even think about doing such a thing would have been laughable at the beginning of the season! So it shows how well we have done.
2) I would rather Alkmaar got 3 points and qualified and Nurnburg got a result too, so Zenhit get knocked out! And we get Arshavin as a News years present!
3) We have got to play the top 2 at home over Christmas (a time that we normally drop points left right and centre) so need to have the best players in top nick.

I think we will end up with 68 points by the seasons end which is more than enough for 4th
