No way you'll do it.
On the 29th September 2011 the Boston Red Sox and Atlanta Braves both missed the play-offs on the final game. Going into September. Baaawston had 99.6% chance of making the play-offs and Braves 96.9% and would take miracles for them not to make it, especially Tampa over the Red Sox.
Like I said, on the same night both choked and it is known as 1 of the most interesting night in baseball since they did both choke. It's not even like the Cardinals or Tampa Rays were good in the final month... Both teams just sucked so much the others got in.
This little story has probably bored all of you but the reason I bring it up is because it is the math behind it. 99.6% and 96.9% for both teams. The footballing equivalent is a team being 15 points a head and finding a way to still win the league.
So in other words, yeah you're 100% right THBK...It isn't over mathematically but please remember you're Man Utd and even if you lose a few City still need to keep winning and you have a few whipping boys to face. I just will not happen.
