United 4 - 2 Blackpool

Rafael(Smalling) Evans Vidic(Rooney) Evra
Park(Owen) Fletcher Scholes Anderson Nani

After trailing Blackpool at one point, the United players showed enough pride to bounce back and win the final match at the Theatre of Dreams. Park, Anderon(yes, Anderson) and Owen scored the goals. This was Van Der Sar's final game at Old Trafford and I guess the lads gave him a fitting send off with this result. It would have been ideal if he kept a clean sheet but let's hope Blackpool's second goal was the last goal VDS conceded in his career. 

I'm gutted for Hargreaves
The one disappointment during the game today was Berbatov not getting a goal to leapfrog the Argentine twat and win the golden boot. In reality our Bulgarian should have scored a couple of goals but he couldn't find the net. The other disappointment I woke up to this morning was the release of Owen Hargreaves. I know, he has barely played a whole match in the last three years but somehow I loved the guy. When he played he showed true grit and determination and seemed to wear the red shirt with pride. I hope he can resurrect his career elsewhere.

It's been a weird season. Away from home we weren't up to the task but at home we were superb. Old Trafford won us this 19th title.  I really can't decide who has been the best player for us during this season and that means that this was truly a team effort. 

It was a joy to watch our players enjoy themselves celebrating our 19th title. The biggest roar came when Owen lifted the trophy! 

6 days to go to the Wembley final. The United players have the opportunity to turn this season from a great one to a memorable one. Of course, there is the little inconvenience of Barcelona but football is the greatest sport because it always holds surprises...

Thank You Lads!
