Three From A few weeks ago everyone was talking about the battle for fourth.

Conventional wisdom was that the two Manchester clubs and Chelsea were clear with us fighting Arsenal and Everton for fourth (Liverpool fans will of course argue they are still in with a shout).

Then Chelsea wobbled and suddenly it went from one from three to two from four as third became a possibility. Following City’s capitulation at Southampton I am now wondering whether its becoming three from five.

City are still five points clear of us, four ahead of Chelsea, but the title has gone. I have to wonder what effect that will have on them for the rest of the season.

From our perspective the situation is clear. Whether we finish second or fourth is not that important, only the Champions league place really matters.

But the more places are up for grabs the better our odds.
