    These are the days. We should cherish them. Without getting too far ahead of ourselves, I think it’s fair to say, we’re going to win the League, absent the most horrendous of slumps which even then would require City to play well above their heretofore standard. We’re going to win the League.

    But these are the days. We should cherish them. Through a combination of relentlessness, outstanding football and luck we are undefeated and but for a blip at Old Trafford, we’d be perfect. Perfection does not happen easily or often and that’s what’s making this season so special. After 30 years, a damburst of perfection.

    But I’m under no illusion that if the ball had bounced but a tiny bit differently, I think we’d still be on top, but the race would be tighter, the football slightly less lustrous and the inevitability of late winners not so definite. A tiny bounce of the ball last night and would it have been a draw? Or a late Wolves winner? A tiny bounce at Old Trafford and, whisper it, a loss? A tiny bounce and a loss or draw to Villa? Or Sheffield United?

    These are the days. We should cherish them. Class, inevitability and relentlessness have seen us gather points from losing positions, from stalemate positions, from positions where we had no right. And that’s what makes this season so special. The joy of a late Firmino winner, of an Alisson finger tip save, of a slick well-oiled machine shifting through the gears and producing a goal, these are all things we may not so readily see again. Certainly not all at once.

    There’ll always be joy in lifting the League a second or third time in coming years, if it happens, but playing the football we’re playing at the moment may not come again. Or only in fits and starts.

    This is a remarkable season, a season of wonders. These are such days, we should cherish them.

    Mostly agree with you. BUT, One game at a time please.

    It is better to be lucky than good.
    That is just so wrong.
    Of course, we need to be good in order to get lucky.

    Definitely a real test of the team's resolve, Wolves are a quality side and gave us a real go. Test passed, time to rest tired legs / tired minds and let the kids move us ahead again in the cup rounds.
