Making up a deficit of 5 points to surge 8 points ahead, and then dropping points to Wigan, supporting United is a rollercoaster ride, Goal.com asks the Facebook groups for more.
GettyAs Sir Alex's army gets closer to their 20th league title, the defeat to Wigan can be a concern for the defending Champions. Goal.com tries to find out what fans on Facebook have to say about the eight points lead coming down to five points, and whether Roberto Mancini and his mercenaries can actually catch up with the defending Premier League championsAbhishek Singh: Five points lead and so much experience, it would take some Black Magic from Mancini, Balotelli and Tevez to overcome the Hurdle, Hard and most likely impossible for Manchester City.Darshan Chajed: Can't call the loss against Wigan coming from complacency. One off day, hopefully. The run in now suddenly doesn't look that easy. But with Manchester City relying on players with mindset of Tevez and Balotelli, it’s still very much United's to lose. Typical United. Huffing and puffing, but just not down. That word on the inside of the shirt, right behind the crest: RELENTLESS.Alan Abraham Eapen: They are mostly known for making life difficult for the team and the supporters alike in the initial part of the season. They are not known for surrendering towards the end of the season no matter what position they are in the league. But this time around all the teams are chipping in with surprises. United's big danger now just as with the other night, against Wigan, is their complacency. They still got a couple of tough fixtures coming up. Both Everton and Sunderland are playing good recently so will be hard to get a win against them. Though under Alex Mcleish Villa are struggling, we still can’t consider them as pushovers either. Villa is known for giving their own share of surprises to the top four teams throughout the league history. Title race is wide open as United can't afford to drop anymore points now. And City will be all charged up knowing this and if you consider Balotelli's ban for the remaining fixtures might just work as the perfect boon for them. So it’s United's title to lose from here on. But very unlikely.Darshan Rubio: It’s not of major concern! They are still five points ahead. Having seen them over the years, I can safely assume they are going to get it done. It’s in them, they thrive under pressure.
Hardcore Football Fans:Vishal Gupta: It's a blip, Rather than anything else. United still are favorites to win the title because of the 'Been there done that factor’. If you have asked SAF at the start of the season will you take this position (Being five points ahead and five games to go) he would have taken it without a doubt.Rajdeep Citizen: The derby will play a big part to decide the title should City win all its remaining five games and United lose to us and then draw, the goal difference will play the crucial role.Raktim Madridista: It's natural to drop points on the road, more so against a very confident Wigan side. United will recover from this. Nani and Jones have come back from injury so that'll help. It's now United's title to lose. Even if they lose the Manchester derby, they'll go on to win the title! SAF knows what it takes to win the league.
