    Fair play to ya Will. A team that has netted over 50 goals at home and only lost once have had a fair season.

    A few too many draws at home my friend. The likes of Stockport and Tranmere, which we both drew, really have come to haunt us. Saying that, we will always be saying 'If they'd done this and they'd done that.'

    The Playoffs it is then. The one team I didn't want - Millwall! We have to win by more than one goal in the first leg (at home) to have any chance of coming out of the English equivalent of Galatasaray with some tickets for Wembley.
    Up the mighty Wharfedale 'arriers!

    Best team won the league I think. Over the course of the season I think they've been better than United, and by more than a point, the fact that it was just a point is testament to Fergie and Rooney who kept us in it for so long.

    Over all not a bad season, a cup, second, 1/4's in CL. Good points total in the league too, some silly defeats but that's the league this year.

    We've also evolved a bit more, good age in the team, with the Silva's, Evra, Evans, Rooney, Valencia, Nani, Fletcher all at a good age and Giggs, Scholes et al are less important each year as these step up. Scholes has proved his worth though over the second half of the season.

    Chelsea haven't really made any changes so have a core of a team which is rapidly entering the 30's.

    I was surprised Chelsea only scored 8. Wigan let in 9 at Tottenham!

    Some silly wins as well, beating City after 96 mins and 93 mins!
    Something Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Aston Villa couldn't do!

    Hardly unusual for United though, we do it too often to be lucky.

    The fact was in the league at City, they went for the draw, we went for the win. Make your own luck and all that.
