man utd premier league champions again!

Manchester United are crowned champions of the Premier League for the third season in succession. It wasn't a great match but Utd did what was needed; one point against Arsenal to ensure Liverpool, their nearest rivals, could not catch them. This season the squad has really come in to its own, with fantastic contributions from the not so famous names including Anderson, Fletcher, O'Shea and the youngsters. Now all attention is focused on the Champions League Final in Rome against Barcelona and the possibility of winning the cup in back to back tournaments.

This victory brings Utd level with Liverpool in the number of league titles won (18) and is another great achievement for manager Sir Alex Ferguson. Honourable mention to those great servants of the club Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.

Only two slight regrets: not seeing off Everton in the FA Cup semi final to have a shot at an unprecedented quintuple and not sorting out the Carlos Tevez situation before now (Fergie, Fergie, sign him up). Still mustn't be greedy.

Glory, Glory, Man Utd and the reds go marching on, on, on!
