    I'd like him to be given at least one more full season, but it needs to be seen if he still has the dressing room, if a manager loses that it's game over..

    I think its all 4, certainly 3..

    But Liverpool on paper have a fairly easy run in, but the reality is they have a chunk of games against teams battling for relegation... so its silly time. United's league hopes fell apart 2 years ago with that loss at Wigan..

    Away to Palace, west ham, cardiff and norwich..

    I still think City are favourites but its not clear cut

    It's a great season for the neutral. Moyes will be fine. He's a good manager and will be successful if the powers that be don't bottle it. Chelsea for the win

    I think we all need to face up to the fact that Liverpool are going to win the league

    In the grand scheme of this season it's the only logical conclusion that I can come to which is in keeping with the general theme of awfulness. I think we should all take a moment to recoil in horror at just what a huge part we've managed to play in their title charge by gifting them 6 points and putting a +4 on their already mammoth goal difference.


    The funny thing is if we didn't despise them so much as rivals there's actually a lot to admire about what they've done there. They've managed to assemble a team of players who apart from Suarez aren't superstars but they've worked relentlessly on a system and built a team to excel at it. For them to beat the likes of Chelsea and Man City to a title would be a huge achievement. The speed, movement and interchanging between their players today was light-years ahead of the slow, predictable, plodding rubbish we served up.

    The sheer amount of time our players were taking on the ball was staggering in comparison to Liverpool's who were all popping off first time passes and moving into space to receive it again. I lost count of the amount of times our players were caught dawdling on the ball, taking 2-3 touches to keep the move going. Then when we did actually manage to get some first time passes going, they were inaccurate,chest high and smacked of piss-poor technique; looked like something you'd see down hackney marshes.

    We had a huge chance to put a dent in their title hopes today and we didn't just fail, we managed to fail whilst embodying all that is awful about football in this country in general; over-rated players on 200k a week who can't pass the ball first time with a manager who bases his style around awful percentage crap. 1 shot on target at home to our most bitter rivals is something that should not be forgotten or forgiven. They've never ever been as accommodating to us at Anfield as we were to them today, even when they had Nigel Clough and Neil Ruddock playing for them. Unforgivable.

    The title is in their hands if they turn City and Chelsea over at Anfield, which given how they'll all be buzzing and believing after that today will be no huge surprise. It would be the most apt footnote to a season which will forever be used as the modern-day barometer of shite, we all thought 2011-12 would never be surpassed but Moyes has broken yet another record in double quick time, he's dragged us to depths that nobody could have forseen or thought possible.

    I agree. Liverpool are the team to beat at the moment. As a Gooner to win the league would be immense, but it'll take a victory at Chelski for me to really believe we can do it. I think we can beat City home.

    To be honest winning the FA Cup and coming close to the title would be pretty special after the last nine years us Gooners have suffered!
