Not often (never actually) do I find myself in agreement with Frank Lampard - but
it is hard to find fault with his comments on the title race.

United had a great result at the weekend but that doesn't automatically hand
them the title and slimline Frank knows it.

"United have to come here so basically we have to try to win all our games and if
we can beat United and they drop points then we have got a chance, it is as
simple as that," he said.

"It is far from over. Manchester United know that and we know that but it is
important that we try to win our games in the meantime before we play them."

Not the usual arrogance we came to expect under Jose Mourinho's rule - just a
straightforward assessment of the situation.

United are clearly in the strongest position - but only if they keep winning and
Chelsea away will be far from easy, particularly now Didier Drogba has
discovered the net again.

Chelsea have the easier run-in - but there'll be slip-ups to be had along the way
from both sides, remember Bolton and Portsmouth this time last season.

Tell us what you think ...

If they beat us at the bridge.. that means we have to get points of arsenal.. we'd have to lose no more than 2 points of all the other games.

Tbh, I've always found it very puzzling why do fans besides call him 'Fat Frank' when he possessed one of the most masculine physique in Premiership IMHO!

I don't like the fact that many on this whole forum think that United have a devine right to win the title. Did you know of the years before 1993?

They'll put up a good fight for the title.

We also don't have a devine right to win every game. I honestly think we'll mess up against Middlesbro away.

United and Chelsea both have some tough games coming up. There are teams fighting for European places and desperately trying to avoid relegation at this stage of the season so none of the games will be easy until those things have been decided.

I'm hopeful City and/or Everton can take points off Chelsea but we must be wary of Villa (who have taken points off Arsenal, Chelsea & Liverpool this season), West Ham (they've already beaten us once this season) and Boro (one of our bogey teams and the only side other than Chelsea to beat Arsenal in the league).

And Blackburn Rovers & West Ham United away.
United are bound to drop points in any of these 3 fixtures. ;)

haha, i love that comment, like " If we win all our games we have left we will win the league " from someone in united, it's pretty obvious they have a chance if they win over us and we drop points.

They can't give us another guard of honour. We're the holders :rolleyes:

We're at home to West Ham.

Hopefully it's all sorted by then. Or going into the last 2 games needing a point.
