All this "top for x days" nonsense is getting out of hand. Being top can be because you played more games than another team, played before them, played weaker teams, etc. At the end of the day what matters is where you end up and the actual gap at the end which was five points (could have been a bit more if City hadn't won the league early). Injuries could mean that the players you start a season with are different to who you end it with. Just use more meaningful measures like final league position, number of points, number of goals scored and conceded to judge how well we've done. Number of weeks on top can only be an indicator of how much you enjoy the campaign. "Bottling it" talk is just dumb.A more experienced side and one that can manage a game capitalises on the little errors that City makes, that’s what it takes to win the title. You can’t be top for 247 days and have nothing to show for it come the end of the season.
I would have cut them some slack if the context was slightly different but the West Ham, Liverpool and Southampton collapses still leave a bitter taste in my mouth.
