Man Utd fans have been saying that we cannot afford to lose tomorrow night. Obviously we don't want to drop any unneccesary points, but we have TWO games in hand. This puts us in an excellent position.
In my opinion, it is unlikely we will lose tomorrow. At minimum, I would at least expect a draw, but I think we will get a result tomorrow. This puts us 7 points clear with a game in hand. 7 points is a reasonable margin, and if we beat Portsmouth, at home where we have only dropped 2 points if I am correct, then we will be 10 points clear.
Realistically then, we can afford to lose tomorrow, with the knowledge that if we win our game in hand then we shall be 7 points clear anyway. However, I sincerely hope we do win tomorrow to keep the nerves down to a minimum!
