'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Where Were Neville And Solskjaer Yesterday?

Did anyone spot Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the JJB yesterday? Was he there at all? It does not seem too important but I'd like to know.

The legendary Norwegian, one of the all time favourites at Old Trafford, was a member of the squad at the start of the season. His injury problems forced him to retire in September - a massive loss to football I think.

He should have celebrated this title on the pitch with everyone else - even though he hasn't even played a single game.

Another absentee was Gary Neville - and his absence is much more baffling than Ole's who, after all, has retired. The club captain wasn't there on the podium, he did not celebrate with everyone else...

I know he did not play a single game and therefore, according to the rules, wasn't eligible to participate in the celebrations but as club captain, he surely should have got special dispensation?

Or was he there and I only missed him because he was kept in the shadow by his teammates? I doubt it... but it's possible that I am a total fool.

Yeah, it's ten. Simpson spent the last few months on loan - but it's true he could have been there. And I agree that Foster should have been there definitely.

And why was Gary in a suit? I mean, Nani was in a United kit though he was suspended...
