    SMS Message: Looking at the last three games for Liverpool and last three for Man City I think Liverpool will need to have wrapped the title up at the end of April. The Liverpool v City match on 4th April could be a title decider. from Sam
    SMS Message: Watford need to be safe before their May fixtures. Especially the last two, otherwise they will be in a whole heap of trouble. from Stuart

    Paul Walmsley‏: That late run-in for Liverpool doesn't look fantastic. Away to Arsenal, home to Chelsea, away to Newcastle? Tricky if we need to be getting points at the back end of the season. Going to City early April is going to be HUGE. #LFC#bbcfootball

    Simon Matthews: #bbcfootball@SouthamptonFC going to have to be on it from Aug to Nov... proper tough slog of games until then, with only two games of opening 14 or so against teams in the bottom 6 last year. #Ralphampton will do it though... #COYS
