This coming Sunday at 10pm, Manchester United will take on Sunderland away and Manchester City will take on QPR at home.
With City leading the league by a mere +8 GD, tied on points with United, they will win the league as long as they win their match. If they do not win, then United will win the league if they do one better over Sunderland.
We can drop our heads in despair at how we had an 8pt lead with 6 games remaining and capitulated to the present moment where we are tied on points and 8 goals behind on goal difference, but after a fair bit of wallowing, we have to try and look for positives.
While it's hard to imagine City losing to QPR, considering that they haven't lost at the Etihad this season, QPR is fighting for at least 1pt to avoid relegation and hence should at least fight harder than their league position suggests. That being said, United will need to win at Sunderland to capitalise on any opportunity too. No mean feat.
As a fan I'm already very happy to have been around during the SAF era where we have constantly been challenging for trophies and long may this continue. We also have an exciting post-season to look forward to as we finally look to strengthen the squad back to at least the 07-08 squad-type of glory.
In the meantime, I will just hope for the best and expect the worst, which would be that City and United both win our games, hence losing by the narrowest of margins. In all probability, that's gonna hurt the most.
Still we will move on. We will never die.
