WHAT EVER, MU fans..... chelsea 2 - MU 1, hahaha MU played fantastic football???? stop joking around

---------------------------

That is decent considering we played with a limping duo Vidic and Rooney with Tevez and Ronaldo on the bench and not patrice Evra or Paul Scholes also Anderson did not play I think. 2-1 is a tight score and we managed to put one into the back of the net. 2nd half United were much the better team that you needed to put a 30m man on the goal line.

I dont think Chelsea deserve the tittle if they won it so luckily.Chelsea has been struggling with their team for a long season,they always have to work very hard to see off the opponent,even the weakest one,they seldom play high class football.

I think United,Arsenal and liverpool are better teams than Chelsea,i do think Arsenal should win the PML if United cant do that'.Arsenal is just unlucky,in the CL they lost to Liverppol unluckily while Liverppol lost to Chelsea unluckily.Chelsea is just lucky to go to this stage.

Though Man U has a tough test this sunday,i think they can handle this,they always do greatly under pressure.For Chelsea,though the opponent is weaker,who can say Borton wont overwhelm Chelsea?

Colleagues, it took Man. U & Arsenal several yrs of spending real/chunk money on players while Chelsea fc were asleep. Why you are mocking them is b'cause they woke UP and started spending money overnight to become like them. Is that why u're saying they spent too much money? afterall, football is a game of money spinning for good result.

Whether they spent huge money to attain their aim or not, this season is a very good / result
oriented yr for Chelsea fc. GO FOR THE PREMIER LEAGUE CUP - UP CHELSEA.

do people actually believe all this stuff about man utd carefully planning their finances over the years and not buying their success!! Until fergie came along you hadnt won the league for 23 years!! Now that is what I call a glittering history!! You can go on about the 60's all you want and how you havent bought titles in the past. But the truth is, if man utd werent the richest club in the world they wouldnt be able to continue dominating football quite as effectively as they are now. They would be more like Arsenal taking their time and investing in youth. Man Utd may invest in youth but it usually costs around 20 million. No one has a divine right to be the richest or be the best!

My question is, how would STEVE BRUCE feel when he denies Man U of the title. As a former player and also having friends that support Man U, he is in a very tough position. What will he tell his players? The day Wigan drew at Chelsea his cell phone did not stop ringing.. mostly friends former Man U players calling to congratulate him.... I do not want to be in his position.. not fan at all

Basically, 2 great teams, playing 2 not so hot teams.

as much as i would love to see Chelsea pull it off, it wont happen. Man U is good enough to pull out of this unless they really really arent together.

Chelsea fc shall win the league if Man. U draws with Wigan fc, but not with that wide margin of defeat to Bolton. W fc. Never say it's over until it's over.
