    FWIW...

    Emirates Marketing Project only dropped 2pts (a 3-3 draw with Sunderland) at home in 2011/12.
    Man Utd only dropped 2pts (a 1-1 draw with WBA) at home in 2010/11.
    Chelsea only dropped 2pts (a 1-1 draw with Charlton) at home in 2005/06.

    Unsurprisingly, all those sides won the league... although it's slightly galling to think that ManU only won 5 away fixtures that season and needed just 80pts to finish top o_O

    Which clever clogs on here can google an post the number of times based on points that our current total would have won the league? I would but it's time to watch Have I Got News for You.

    Need to do better against the mid table also-rans. Equal amount of points against the bottom half teams.

    I'm pretty sure we won't be able to match this phenomenal home form next year. 50 points at home would be great. That means we would need close to 40 points away to fight for the title. A couple of wins away vs the top 6 would do just fine.

    We could do better next year by turning those draws at Sunderland, Bournemouth and West Brom into wins. In each of those games, we were out of sorts and didn't deserve to take 3 points. I'm hoping that with a solid pre-season and a rested squad we can push on.

    Need to do something about those autumn blues too... that run of draws in October gave Chavski an ultimately unassailable lead...
