Alex;3662884 said:So annoying. The worst thing is, it wasn't even the genius of Jose, or great play that got the result. A stupid Stevie G slip meant that Chelsea didn't even have to play. They defended ok, but that's easy when you're up a goal, and not under nearly as much pressure as your opposition. Liverpool's shooting was terrible. Schwarzer barely had to move from the centre of his goal all game.
I think we'll drop points to Palace now too, maybe even lose and finish third. Hope I'm wrong though. Would be terrible for Stevie G to miss out because of that incident. I have a feeling City will still drop points to either Palace or Everton.
Mus;3662893 said:Rogers incompetence lost it for them. He had an entire week to prepare for this, he knew exactly how Chelsea would play (not even with a strong team either mind you) and still just let his team constantly be forced wide every time they went forward. He prepared nothing and changed little

Alex;3662895 said:There was no space through the middle. And we had our share of reasonable shots - each directed at Schwarzer. I also still believe that if Gerrard doesn't slip over it's a completely different game. Chelsea were defensive the whole game, but especially once they went up 1 nil. Ten men behind the ball, mostly in the middle, and sitting back. There was little we could do to break it up through there.

Mandieta6;3662993 said:Liverpool face Newcastle and Palace who have nothing to play for. They'd have to bottle it to lose, and we need them to lose, not just draw, we can't make up the GD. City face Everton away, but Everton have lost steam and are probably out of the CL picture. They then face Villa, who might be in the relegation fight and West Ham, who are safe. We face Norwich and Cardiff, both of whom might be fighting the relegation battle when we face them, and we've been crap at seeing out matches in which we're clear favorites in the run-in. All in all, I think all 3 will win their remaining matches meaning City gets it.
