keep winning!

According to Wikipedia, Arsenal have the longest win streak in English football, winning 14 consecutive matches across two seasons between 2001 and 2003.

The way things are at the top of the Premier League this season, that record may fall.  Arsenal and Chelsea have each won 5 consecutive matches.  The one before that they played each other and drew.  City, Chelsea and Arsenal "control their own destiny".  If they win every match (including the one where they play each  other), they win the league.  But with 16 matches to go, that would require a record or two to be broken. 

City have already broken the record for fastest to 100 goals.  But we find our selves in second place due to some sloppy early away form.  100 goals isn't a 'record' as much as it is an amazing feat.  Why don't we celebrate fastest to 50 goals?  Or fastest to 58?  It's just a round number. 

But to be the champion this year, we'll have to keep extracting 3 points from every match.  Until someone falters.  I just hope it is not us!
