May 7th to May 10th will probably translate into the most important 96 hours for Champions and Europa League hopefuls Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspurs and our beloved Reds!
With the Reds having only three fixtures left on their agenda, Man City and Spur have four. During the dates mentioned above, the Reds will play one critical and extremely tricky game away to Fulham (Mon 9th). On the other hand, Saturday 7th Man City confront Everton at Goodison, while Spurs host strugglers Blackpool at White Hart Lane. Our two nemesis than battle it out Tuesday 10th at Eastlands!
No, I do not intend going into result predictions. What I will say is that by 10pm Tuesday 10th, the Blue Mancs, the Londoners and our Reds will be on 36 games played, with two games to go each! The Reds, at this stage of proceedings, will certainly not be able to climb to 4th, and even if we win at Craven Cottage, we might even find ourselves back into 6th place! For all intents and purposes we need to win all three of our games and maintain our current positive goal advantage to finish 5th.
It’s all so breathtaking isn’t it? In the midst of all this there will be the Man Utd vs Chelsea showdown at Old Trafford which may ultimately have our eternal enemies crowned yet again Premier League champions.
I guess we will need to regroup here next Tuesday night to take measure of our chances. As I have pointed out the game at Fulham will be close to negotiating a minefield, and in my modest view, perhaps our most difficult match of the final three. Should we come away from London unscathed, than Tuesday night’s game in which we Reds have direct interest, will be all that more enticing to watch!
