    It really was a great game of football today Dan and a 'massive' result for us today against a very good side.

    That's one of the fairest posts you've made Danbert!

    It was a really good came to watch and I felt Arsenal were just a shade unlucky - but that's life for you. I suggest it's practically a 2 horse race now unless Spurs can keep a run going - that's doubtful as they usually bottle it.

    I think the top 2 will be similarly placed come the New Year with a bigger gap behind.

    I'd like to see Spurs make a fist of it, they've been excellent this season. And they really were robbed in the game against Stoke last week.

    I don't think they are that good. United and City are just too powerful. We haven't played well at all. But despite being in crisis, with a senile, demented, old, alcoholic, lucky... anything else I've missed.. manager we have a quite unbelievable points tally. Or is that just luck.. for the 20th season in a row...

    The table doesn't lie. We're a tad lucky to be where we are but since that City game we've tightened up the back and the big players have stepped up. They haven't played superbly, but they've put their bodies on the line and worked and worked to keep us in there.

    City are probably more powerful. But they also have class forwards. Love him or hate him but Mario is class, powerful, skillful and quick. Then Aguero.. They also have the one thing almost all title winners need, and why Arsenal haven't won anything for so long, a class stable goal keeper.

    I'm not writing Man U off at all. I think we could do the classic United season. Just keep in touch with a team playing better football, grind out results, then catch and move ahead and the other team just gets dispirited and we pull away. We've a good young squad so I think things are positive.

    I saw a great comment on the Guardian I think.. 'Now that Fergie has no money we'll see how average he is'... honestly its those guys who only started watching football in the late 90's believe that codswallop... or he was lucky to get that one generation...What the guy did at Aberdeen was quite incredible and matches almost anything he has done south of the border. Like him or not he deserves a bit more respect from the ignorant fans of other teams..

    His management over the past 5 years has probably been the best of his career.. the way he handled Ronaldo and Rooney problems, brought through youth, bought potential, sparingly used the older players.. very few managers would have done what he has done for us recently.

    Keane's rant reinforces what Ferguson is about. Club first. No sentimentality. An older player with little more to give or a good coach with more to give. He was forced into a decision to back one or the other and he always looks for the future. He's ruthless - a right bastard. But you don't do what he does without that streak.

    Good post Iain. Absolutely spot on. I think Spurs are actually in the position Danbert was claiming City are in last week i.e. learning how to be a 'big club'

    Good start for Spurs as Adebayor beats Terry to the ball to make it 1-0 !

    HT 1-1 Chelsea back in it. The turning point was when Drogba swapped his purple boots for yellow ones!
