Woah!! I'm ecstatic. We are only one point away from being crowned CHAMPIONS OF ENGLAND for the 19th time. Fellow red devils had been taunted during the late 80's by the scousers but now it's us who will be sitting on 'their' perch.... very very soon. Thank you SIR ALEX!
We couldn't have started the game on a better note. Chicharito, aka the bargain of the century, scored after just 40 seconds and then, 20 minutes later, Vidic came up with a captain's goal. We could have scored 4 more goals today but Mr Rooney and Hernandez decided to test my coronary system by missing some decent chances. In reality it should have been a bigger win today but you know United, they never do it the easy way! Howard Webb, labeled by some idiots as one of us, could have awarded at least one penalty to our team but no, he's too big a United fan to award us a clear penalty!
The players were brilliant today. Bar the missed chances, Chicho and Roo caused Chelsea all sorts of trouble. Valencia played well throughout the 90 minutes, humiliating Ashley Cole in the process. Park ran his socks off while Giggsy and Carrick controlled the midfield with aplomb. Even Evans, on for the injured O'Shea, put in an excellent shift at left back! The other defenders were their usual self and Van Der Sar saved us on a couple of occasions. Well done lads!
We are one small step away from being crowed kings of England and then it will be us who will be holding England's bragging rights. Our loss vs the Gunners last week led to a proliferation of the so called prophets of doom, some even deeming our team as too weak to be crowned champions. The ABU's(anyone but United) must have had one huge boner when we lost vs Arsenal and today when Lampard scored...I hope they tune in to their TV sets in two weeks time to see us lift the trophy! Well done UNITED!
