That website is laughable -
"Already crowned Right Result title winners, Manchester United completed their domestic programme in style with a win at Wigan Athletic. The final day win should have been even more emphatic as United should have been awarded a second-half penalty for Titus Bramble’s trip on Paul Scholes. Whether the former England midfielder should have still been on the field of play at that stage is debatable but outside of the Right Result remit.
The Right Result is a 3-0 win for Manchester United. "
No mention of Ferdinand's handball? Shocking! If Wigan had got that penalty and Scholes would have got sent off as he should have been the result would have been very different.
I've never said that the league table lies, and earlier i did mention the fact that Man Utd deserved to win it this year. My point has been about the Wigan game and how Steve Bennett gave you very favourable decisions.
As for wednesday, i'm almost past caring who wins...but i do happen to think chelsea matchup very well against united in a one match scenario. It's a toss up as to who prevails...but i think it's probably the best chance united will ever have of winning second european cup under fergie, it would be a massive blow to future european aspirations if they're arch rivals do them over. How embarassing for fergie if avram grant wins the cup at his first attempt.
If they do lose atleast they'll have the league title as consolation prize.
boro supporter here what more can i say 8-1
8-1 :-) damn that was good
These days he's obviously had a slight change of heart as his team haven't one the premiership for several seasons the FA cup becomes more important when it suits him...
I would say the premier league is the consolation prize for united because the European Cup has always been more important, if you're Man Utd and winning the league title has been a habit over the last 10 years, adding to the clubs two European cup wins has to be the big prize....at the very least fergie would like to take the club clear of forests' haul of 2 european cups under cloughie, and he desperately wants to emulate cloughs achivement in europe.
The team fergie played against bayern in 99 isn't a patch on the team he'll field a week on wednesday but great teams are judged on how they fare in this competition . European games have a completely different atmosphere and sense of anticipation than the domestic games between the big four, it is the knockout stages of the european cup where true legends are made. Does anyone outside of Madrid give a toss how many spanish leagues the great Real Madrid team of puskus and di stefano accumulated ? No. what people remeber and why they are legends of world football is because of those 5 european cup wins, most notable that match against eintracht frankfurt.
Ryan giggs may have equalled bobby charltons appearance record and scored to clinch the 10th title for united under fergie, but what would he give to score in a european cup final victory ? That would be worth all 10 of his premiershit titles.
English football has got it's priorities completely wrong, club over country and domestic over european football. The greats of the game are judged on european nights and euro and world cup competitions not the bleedin' two-tier premier league where the defending has more holes than st. andrews.
Maradona was awesome for napoli and barca but it is for mexico 86 he is remembered.
Cruff was a star in the all dominant ajax team in holland, but it was the teams performances in europe and his performances in the 1974 world cup that made him a great.
Pele scored hundreds of goals for a club he spent his entire career at....but it would have all been for nothing if he hadn't played in brazil in 1970.
Even for George Best, who never played for a competitive international team, the european final of 1968 is his greatest moment as a footballer.
Ryan giggs' most prized medal is his 1999 european cup winners medal, even his greatest moment as a footballer didn't come in the premierleague...it came against Arsenal in the FA cup replay when he scored THAT goal and did THAT celebration.

if theres a website about decisions then they might as well do one of those what if their star player didnt play all season i.e. torres for pool, ronaldo for mancs etc etc..we wld find liverpool and united not in the top 4. and according to that site pool should have won 3-2 against blackburn...not counting the penalty shouts which were blatent!
People in glass houses....
He should STFU about Carvalho and Ronaldo and look closer to home - him and Torres are shocking. Gerrard's perfected the 'synchronised dive and pleading look at the referee' - it's a thing of beauty. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVb2gbMtN3I
