You dont get it do you, it doesn't work like that. There is absolutely no relevance between what happened 10 games ago (which could be 5 years ago) and whats about to happen. It doesn't even work in roulette or with coin tossing, so how you think its any sort of guide in football is beyond belief!
The only reason we lost was because of Evans stupidity so early 2nd half. That and the fact he started the fookin game.
I think you are taking this a little too seriously. My comments have all been a little tongue-in-cheek.
However, what I will say is...we are all human and human factors play a part in sport. It's not a game of chance (like coin toss and roulette) so I don't think you can compare. If you're a player and you know you've scored in the last 9 games and if you score today that will be 10/10. Don't you think that's added pressure and the player might be under more pressure than normal because of this realisation - possibly resulting in the player not scoring. Same goes for Utd. We know won the last 3 home PL games against City. It may have played on their minds and put more pressure on themselves to win.
Don't take the 10 year form guide too seriously, I'm just saying I find it helps me predict how a game is going to pan out, from time to time.
