The Tortoise and the Hare?

The Tortoise and the Hare?

Eleven games played with ten victories and one draw represents a fine start to the season.

With thirty one points accumulated from a possible maximum return of thirty-three, many would see it as title winning form.

In fact, if that form can be replicated then you`d have to assume that it would represent something of a stroll to the Premier League title with the magical 100 points total being smashed.

The fact that it`s our noisy-neighbours who have made that start should give us cause for concern.

Or should it?

History shows that teams who get off to a fast start don`t always win the title. Our own history is littered with occasions whereby we`ve been off the pace and have slowly, but surely, whittled down leads to emerge as champions at the end of the season.

We`re hoping that this season will be no different and that City, just like Chelsea last season, will hit a bad moment.

Of course, we could have done without that nightmare Sunday afternoon, an occasion that only served to heighten fears our noisy-neighbours had not only overtaken us but left us in their slipstream, but I remain optimistic that come the New Year the race for the title will be a lot closer.

Our young Spanish keeper, David de Gea, has spoken briefly in the red-top media about the title race, re-iterating my own thoughts,

"United can still win it all. It`s still not decided City will finish first."

Exactly!

City may have gone off like the proverbial hare but that never done the tortoise any harm did it?

Tortoise? Did U*d not come flying out of the traps at the start? Then your lack of squad depth was exposed, and boy how it was exposed eh?

Whether we win the title or not is completely up in the air - we are playing extremely well, long may it continue. But I can tell you one thing for sure - it will take a collapse of staggering proportions for that collection of misfits, has-beens and callow youngsters to finish ahead of us this season. Of course you could always spend some money on a couple of decent players, but then that would just be buying the league wouldn't it? We can't have that now can we!
